9.2 Port Mapping
Port mapping is mapping a port of outside web host’s IP address to a machine inside web, and provide the
service. When user connects to the port of the IP, the server will automatically map the request to the
corresponding machine inside LAN. With this function, we can map many ports of a machine’s IP address to
different machines’ different ports inside web.
The port mapping can also have other special agent functions, like POP, SMTP, Telnet and so on.
Theoretically, it can provide more than sixty thousand ports. For example, if we want to map a web server which
has an IP address of 192.168.111.10, we just need to input the IP address and TCP port 80 into the port mapping
chart of the router.
There are two ways to map the port: UPnP function automatically map and modify the router’s port mapping
chart by manual.
9.2.1
UPNP Function
In order to get connection to the Embedded DVR through Public network, we need to set the Router to cross
the NAT of Embedded DVR. UPnP can make the NAT cross automatically by the UPnP agreement of Embedded
DVR, and don’t have to set the Router.
To realize the UPnP Function, there must be Router support and enable the UPnP Function.
The first step
Connect the Router to the network, get to the Menu of the Router, set the Router, and enable the UPnP
Function.
Routers made by different manufacturers may have some difference, please refer to the specification
carefully before setting the Router.
The second step
Connect the Embedded DVR to the Router; the configuration will automatically gain the IP address or static
IP. After setting up the IP, click the Advanced. And get to the XXX, ports and multicast etc. choose to open
the Enable at the [UPnP port mapping]
The third step
Enter into the Router management interface; detect the port if there is already a Port mapping. If there is, it
shows UPnP setting’s finished.
The forth step
Input the IP address in IE, and add port number of the Embedded DVR, for example: 155.157.12.227:81. If
you want to enter by the Client Software, use the TCP port offered by the outer net.
If there are a few embedded DVRs need to set the UPnP function, in order to avoid IP conflict, set the ports of embedded DVR
into different ports numbers. Otherwise, it will choose the embedded DVR port set preceded as the first choice.
9.2.2
Port mapping Manually
The first step
Connect the Embedded DVR to the Router, set the static IP.
The second step
Log in Router, enter into the configuration menu of Router, and set the menu. Then get to port, set the IP
distributed by the Embedded DVR, and set the rule of port mapping, add HTTP and TCP port into mapping
list.
Default access ports of Embedded DVR include HTTP port 80 and TCP port 8000, if the ports are occupied
by the other device, please modify the default port of the Embedded DVR into other vacant ports.
The third step
Input the public net IP address in the IE, and add the port number of the Embedded DVR you want to access
after the IP, for example: http://155.157.12.227:81. If you want to access by Client Software, you can use the
outer net TCP port directly.
For detail configuration setting, please refer to the user manual of Router.
9.3 Voice Intercom
9.3.1
Summarize
Embedded DVR Bidirectional Talk: user can talk to remote client software or Web via DVR audio input and
output ports; user can listen voice from Client Software and WEB via DVR audio output ports.
Two types of bidirectional talk ---- sharing and standalone ----for different models, exact info please refer to
specifications.
9.3.2
Configuration
Local configuration
Connect a microphone to the MIC input port, connect loudspeaker to the audio output port.
If no standalone MIC input port, please connect microphone to the number 1 audio input port
Local output needs active audio output device.
Remote PC Configuration
Connect microphone and loudspeaker to computer.
Enable bidirectional talk in IMS software or WEB.
9.4 HDD S.M.A.R.T
S.M.A.R.T: “Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology”
S.M.A.R.T HDD can analysis head, disc, motor, circuit operation, history and default security values via monitor
instruction in HDD and surveillance software in host. Alarm will be sent to user automatically when the value is
outside the scope of the security situation.
Detection parameters of Seagate HDD for example are divided into seven: ID detection code, Attribute
Description, Threshold, Attribute Value, Worst, Date, and Status.
1、ID detection code
ID detection code is not the only; manufacturer can use different ID code or increase or decrease its
quantity according to the detected parameter’s quantity.
For example: the ID detection code of WEASTERN DIGITAL’s product is “04”, parameter is Start/Stop
Count, but the parameter of same code in Fujitsu’s product is “Number of times the spindle motor is
activated”.
2、Attribute Description
Attribute Description: name of detection item. Manufacturer can increase or decrease。As ATA standard
update constantly, sometimes different models in same brand maybe different ,but must ensure major test
items specified in S.M.A.R.T .(although different manufacturers have specific naming convention ,the
essence of monitoring is the same.)
1 Read Error Rate
2 Spin up Time
4 Start/Stop Count
5 Relocated Sector Count
7 Seek Error Rate
9 Power-on Hours Count
10 Spin up Retry Count
194 Power temperatures
195 ECC on the Fly count
197 Current Pending Sector Count
198 Disconnection beyond repair
199 CRC cyclic redundancy check
200 Write Error Count
Different manufacturers and different models have different attribute description , the user has no need to know exact
meaning ,attribute detection values enough for them.
3、Threshold
It is specified by manufacturer calculated through a specific formula. If there is a attribute value lower
than the threshold, which means HDD become unreliable and data stored is very easy to lose. Composition
and size of reliable attribute values is different for different HDD. It should be noted that, ATA standard only
provides some SMART parameters; it does not provide a specific value. "Threshold" value is determined by
manufacturers based on products’ features. Thus, results tested by manufacturer provided detection software
is very different from testing software under Windows (such as AIDA32)
4、Attribute Value
Attribute value is the maximum normal value; the general range is from 1 to 253. Typically, the
maximum attribute value is 100 (for IBM, Quantum, and Fujitsu) or 253 (for Samsung). Of course, there are
some exceptions, for example, some models produced by Western Digital have two different attribute values,
and property value is set 200 when initial production, but after then it is changed into 100.
5、 Worst
Worst value is the largest non-normal value in HDD’s running. It is a value calculate for HDD’s
cumulative running, it is constantly refreshed according to running cycle, and very closed to the threshold.
Whether the HDD is normal by S.M.A.R.T analysis is based on the comparison with threshold. The
maximum value appear when new HDD start to use, which would continue to decrease with the everyday use
or error happen. Consequently, larger attribute values mean better quality and higher reliability; smaller
values mean more possibility of failure increases.
6 、Dates
Actual values of HDD’s detection items, many items are cumulative values.
7、Status
It is current statues of HDD’s every attribute after analyzing and comparing above attribute values by
S.M.A.R.T, also is important information to judge HDD healthy or not.
There are three statuses: Normal, Alarm and Error----which is closely related with Pre-failure/advisory
BIT.

9.6 HDD Capacity Calculation
Reference of HDD Capacity Calculation
The first time install DVR, please check if the HDD has installed.
The capacity of the HDD
There is no limitation of capacity of single HDD to DVR, please choose the HDD according to the saving
time.
The choose of the Capacity
Computational formula of HDD Capacity:
Whole HDD Capacity = number of the channels × time in need (hour) × spent of HDD Capacity per hour
(MB/hour)
Similarly we can have the formula of recording time:
Recordingtime(hour)
