Connecting the NVR to the Network
There are three methods to connect the NVR to the network: Router or LAN Connection, Direct
High‐Speed Connection and One‐to‐One Connection. For more information of the network,
please refer to Appendix A. Network Overview.
2.5.1
Router or LAN Connection
This is the most common connection in which the NVR is connected to a router and allows
multiple users on and off site to see the NVR on a LAN/WAN (Internet). The NVR must be
assigned an IP address that is compatible with its LAN. By setting up port forwarding on the
router, you can remotely access the cameras from outside of the LAN via the Internet. To
remotely access the Web interface, please refer to 3. Remote Access to the NVR. To set up
port forwarding, please consult the manual of the router or refer to Appendix B: Linksys &
D-Link Port Forwarding.
Straight-through LAN patch cable
Right: Pinout of a straight-through cable.
Figure 2-10
11
NVR8004X
Connection Procedure:

The First step is to purchase or make a straight through cable. We recommend
purchasing one if you have never made a straight through cable. Please remember
you can not use a cross-over network cable for this application.

Once you have a straight through cable, plug one end into the LAN port on the back
of the recorder and the other into the router.

Log into the EverFocus NVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.

To let the router automatically assign an address:


Set the Network Type to DHCP. Make sure to write down the IP address and the
Gateway.
Exit from the Menu to save settings.
To manually assign an address:

Go to a computer connected on the same network as the NVR.

Click on the Start button and choose Run.
If using Windows Vista, choose Search instead.

Type “command” and click on OK.
In Vista, you will need to double-click on the “Command Prompt” file to open it.

In the DOS prompt, type “ipconfig” and press Enter.

The network information will be displayed on a screen similar to the one below.
In Windows Vista, look for the information that says “IP v4”.
Figure 2-11
12


NVR8004X
Take the values for Subnet Mask and Default Gateway and input them into the
NVR; these values should be exactly the same in both devices. However, you
should change the last number of the IP address. For example, if the IP address
of the computer is 192.168.2.101, the NVR’s IP address should be 192.168.2.50.
To access the NVR from a computer simply open Internet Explorer and in the address
bar type:
http:// (IP address of the NVR)
Note: The NVR’s IP address will only work at the location of the NVR. To connect
from a different location over the Internet, see below.
To set the NVR for Internet Connection through router:

The next step is to open ports within your router. Log into the router using a PC and
open the following ports.




Ports to open: 80
If your Internet service provider blocks port 80, you can change it to a different
port in the NVR’s Network Menu Setup; open/forward that port instead.
If you are using a Linksys or D-Link router, see Appendix B for basic support on
setting up ports. For any other router, you will need to contact the manufacturer
for support.
To access the NVR from a computer simply open Internet Explorer and in the address
bar type:
http:// (the IP address given by your internet service provider)
Note: If you changed to a different port other than 80, you will need to include this
at the end of the IP address:
http:// (the IP address given by your internet service provider):port number

If you have a WAN Dynamic IP address and have opened the ports, go to 6.7.3 DDNS
Setup to configure the DDNS settings.
13
NVR8004X
2.5.2
Direct High-Speed Connection
In a Direct High‐Speed Connection, the NVR connects directly to a modem without the
need for a router. You need to set the static or dynamic WAN IP address assigned by your
ISP (Internet Service Provider) in the NVR’s configuration web pages. To access the NVR,
just type “http://xxx”, where xxx is the IP address given by your ISP. If you have a dynamic
IP address, this connection may require that you use DDNS for a reliable connection.
Figure 2-12
Connection Procedure:

The first step is to purchase or make a straight through cable. We recommend
purchasing one if you have never made a straight through cable. Please remember
you can not use a cross-over network cable for this application

Once you have a straight through cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of
the recorder and the other into the high speed modem.

Log into the EverFocus NVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.

Input the Static IP address, the Subnet Mask, and the Gateway that you obtained
from the internet service provider.
Note: If you have a dynamic IP address, you can set the NVR to DHCP to automatically
detect the network settings. Therefore, it can use a dynamic IP address.

Exit from the NVR’s Menu to save the settings.

To access the NVR from a computer, open Internet Explorer and in the address bar
type: http:// (IP address given by your internet service provider)
Note: When using this type of connection, only one device can be connected to the
modem at a time. You will need to use a computer at a different location to test the
connection s.
14
NVR8004X
2.5.3
One-to-One Connection
You can connect directly without using a switch, router or modem. However, only the PC
connected to the NVR will be able to view the NVR. You will also have to manually assign a
compatible IP address to both the computer and the NVR. Unless the PC has another
network connection, the NVR will be the only network device visible to the PC. See the
diagram below:
Right: Pinout of a crossed-over cable.
Figure 2-13
Connection Procedure:

The First step is to purchase or make a cross-over cable. We recommend purchasing
one if you have never made a cross-over cable. Please remember you can not use a
straight through network cable for this application.

Once you have a cross-over cable, plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the
NVR and the other into the network card on the back of the computer.

Log into the EverFocus NVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.

You must use the Static IP option for this type of connection.

The NVR allows you to use a Web browser to remotely view and manage the system. You can
also receive live video streaming from the NVR using your smartphone. Please download our
mobile applications: MobileFocus for Android and iOS mobile device or MobileFocusHD for
iPad.
Note: Since every Network Configuration is different, please check with your Network
Administrator or ISP to see if your NVR should use specific IP addresses and/or port numbers.
4.5.1
LAN
Figure 4-27
Lan Port: Select LAN1 or LAN2 from the drop down list. Lan 1 port can be configured for
using DHCP or Static IP network connection type while Lan 2 can be set up for using Static
IP or PPPoE.
Install: Check the box to enable the network connection.
Network Type: Three options are selectable: Static IP, DHCP and PPPoE.
Static IP: User can set a fixed IP for network connection.
DHCP: DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP configuration for the network
connection (The option is only for Lan1 port).
PPPoE: For direct connection to the DSL only. Verify with your ISP if they use PPPoE (The
option is only for Lan2 port).
IP address: Displays the NVR’s current IP Address. A static IP address must be set manually.
If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
54
NVR8004X
Subnet Mask: Displays the subnet mask for your network so the NVR will be recognized
within the network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Gateway: Displays the gateway on your network for the NVR to use when communicating
with any devices not on the local network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned
automatically.
DNS Server 1: Displays the primary DNS server for your network. If DHCP is selected and an
internet connection is available, this value should be assigned automatically. This field
must have a valid DNS address in order to use the DDNS feature (see 4.5.3 DDNS).
DNS Server 2: This field shows the secondary DNS server for your network.
HTTP Port: Port number for HTTP/WEB communication.
Bandwidth Limit (Kbps): Specify, disabled / 128 K/ 256 K / 512 K / 768K / 1M / 3M bps. This
is the maximum bandwidth that the NVR is allowed to use on the network. This is a useful
function when connecting the NVR to busy or heavily loaded networks, or when accessing
the NVR(s) over a WAN.
Additional information:
1. Set up the NVR Network Menu according to the instructions detailed in the Networking
chapter of this NVR’s manual.
a. If using DHCP, all settings will be detected automatically. While DHCP is a useful
tool for determining the network settings, if you set up your NVR in this manner its
IP address may change at different times for different reasons, particularly after a
power failure. If the IP address of the NVR changes, you may have difficulties
accessing your NVR locally and/or remotely. It is strongly recommended that you
assign a fixed (static) IP address to your NVR, and that in order to avoid address
conflicts the IP address assigned be outside of the DHCP range of addresses your
router issues to DHCP clients. Please do not set the DHCP address issued to the NVR
by the router as its static IP address unless you take specific steps that program
your router to prevent such address conflicts.
b. If using a Fixed IP (recommended), you will need to input the information manually.
In order for DDNS to work, you must enter valid data, compatible with your
network, for all four of the network setting fields: IP address, subnet mask, default
gateway and the DNS Address (depending on your network hardware and IP
configuration this may be the IP address of your router/gateway, or it may be the
actual IP address of the local DNS server). The DNS server IP is required because
your DNS server provides critical information necessary for the NVR to
communicate with the DDNS server.
You can obtain the actual DNS IP from your Internet Service Provider (ISP); or, from
a PC located on the same LAN as the NVR, go to http://www.dnsserverlist.org/ to
55
NVR8004X
obtain a list of the IP addresses of their recommendation of the best servers to use
for your location.
2. If you are connecting through a router, make sure that you have ‘opened up’ all the
required network ports in the port forwarding section of your router’s setup options.
That is, you have directed the router to send any incoming traffic using those IP ports
to the LAN IP address of the NVR. Useful information about router port forwarding can
be found at www.portforward.com . Different routers may use different terms for port
forwarding function. For instance, D-Link calls it virtual server, Netopia calls it pinholes.
The default port for the NVR is: 80
Note: Port 80 is the default port used for Web browsing. Because of this, in order to
prevent the average user from hosting a Web server, most ISPs BLOCK traffic using port
80 from reaching the average site. If you only plan to view your NVR on a LAN, you can
use port 80, and don’t have to concern yourself with DDNS or routers. However, if you
desire remote access to your NVR, perhaps using DDNS (optional), you MUST select
functional ports and set up the port forwarding in your router. Other ports, such as
8080 and 8000 are sometimes blocked by ISPs as well.
What port(s) should be used? There are 65,535 valid IP ports to choose from. These are
broken down into three groups:
•
Well Known Ports 0 thru 1023
•
Registered Ports 1024 thru 49151
•
Dynamic and/or Private Ports 49152 thru 65535
So, rather than encounter a port conflict by choosing a port commonly used for
another purpose (like port 25 for SMTP mail or port 448 for secure sockets), choose an
‘unusual’ port number. For example, add 50,000 to your house number: 50,123 is less
likely to lead to a port conflict. For a list of the known and registered ports, see
http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

DDNS
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) is a service used to map a domain name to the
dynamic IP address of a network device. You can set up the DDNS service for remote
access to the NVR.
Figure 4-29
DDNS assigns a domain name (URL) to the NVR, so that the user does not need to go
through the trouble of checking if the IP address assigned by DHCP Server has changed.
Once the IP is changed, the NVR will automatically update the information to the DDNS to
ensure it is always available for remote access.
Before enabling the following DDNS function, user should have applied for a host name
from the DDS service provider’s website. We support four DDNS server providers:
www.everfocusddns.com and www.dyndns.com.
Note: We highly recommend that you use xxxx.everfocusddns.com for the simplicity of
setting up your NVR.

Appendix
A
Appendix A: Network Overview
This chapter will give you a basic instruction on how to set up the NVR for network connection.
It is highly recommended that you have a working knowledge of what a network is and how it
works. This will be helpful in completing the networking process.
Introduction to TCP / IP
TCP/IP is the group of protocols used by the Internet and most Local Area Networks (LANs)
throughout the world. In TCP/IP, every computer or other communications device that is
connected to the network has a unique IP address. By doing this you are giving your device a
unique address similar to the address of your house. An IP address is composed of four octets
(numbers in the range of 0 to 255) separated by decimal points. The IP address is used to
uniquely identify a host or computer on the LAN. For example, one computer on a network
could have an IP address of 192.168.1.127.
You should never give two or more devices the same exact IP address, but the first three octets
of an IP address is often the same for all computers in the local area network. For example, if a
total of 253 computers exist in a single LAN, the IP addresses could be assigned starting with
192.168.1.x, where x represents a number in the range of 2 to 254. In IPP address could be
compared with a telephone number.
Subnet Masks
Each host in a LAN has a subnet mask. The subnet mask is a set of octets that is used to
determine which LAN or class it belongs to. The number 255 is usually used to represent the
network address portion of the IP address and a zero is placed at the end to identify the host
portion of the address. Basically the subnet mask tells the devices how the network addresses
are organized, and helps to determine which addresses are local and which are remote (on the
other side of the router).
87
NVR8004X
Gateway Address
Addressees are either local or remote. A gateway address is composed of four octets separated
by decimal points. The gateway address is used to uniquely identify the device on the LAN that
has access to the communications links connecting to other LANs, WANs and/or the Internet
(access to the ‘remote’ addresses).
Virtual Ports
A port number represents a "channel" or entryway for network communications. Port numbers
allow different computers to utilize network resources without interfering with each other. Port
numbers most commonly appear in network programming, particularly socket programming.
Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to the casual user. For example, some
websites on the Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.sitename.com:8100/
In this example, the number 8100 refers to the port number used by the browser to connect to
the web server. The standard port number used by web sites is 80, so this number does not
need to be included with the URL (although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can
theoretically range from 0 to 65535. Most popular network applications, though, use port
numbers at the lower end of the range (such as 80 for HTTP). Ports are similar to doors and
windows of your house, with port 80 acting as the front door. If these are not open you could
not enter the house. This is the same case with ports on a network. If the ports for a specific IP
address are not open then you could not gain access to that IP address.
Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can
refer to Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router. The term port is
also used to refer to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel,
and USB ports.
Another analogy would be: if a WAN IP address is similar to the phone number identify a site, IP
ports are similar to telephone extensions, in that they allow communication with specific
devices within a site that all share the same external (WAN) IP address. A router is a device
which allows multiple computers and other IP enabled equipment to share that single WAN IP
address. It functions like a “switchboard operator” – opening ports creates an association
between those port numbers and the LAN IP address of specific equipment on the LAN behind
the router. When the router sees a ‘call’ for a specific ‘extension’ (port), it directs that data
stream to the (LAN IP address of the) equipment associated with that ‘extension’ (port).

Pre-Installation
Before beginning the installation, please answer the following questions:

Do you have Hi-speed Internet?
______________
There are many types of high speed Internet available. The most common ones are T1,
Cable, and DSL (in order of speed). The NVR is not compatible with a dial-up connection.
Note: EverFocus suggests having a minimum upload speed of 256KBps. This can be addressed
by your Internet Service Provider.

What type of modem/router do you have?
_________________________
Modem/router model name/ #
The modem/router was either installed by your Internet service provider or purchased by
you to establish a connection to the Internet. A router assigns different internal IP
addresses to local computers; this allows multiple computers to access the Internet
through the same external IP address.

Do you have a static IP address?
______________
A Static IP address means you use the same IP address every time you connect to the
Internet. With a static IP address, other Internet users always know the address of your
location and can easily connect with it. This makes it much simpler to host a website, email
server, or other type of server connection. Everfocus suggests using a static IP address. If
this is not available, you will need to use a dynamic IP address. This is explained below.

Do you have a dynamic IP address?
______________
A Dynamic IP address means your IP address changes each time you connect to the
Internet. We recommend asking your Internet service provider for a Static IP address. If
this is not a possibility, you may use the DDNS feature of the NVR. DDNS stands for
Dynamic Domain Name Server, a service that provides a central database where IP
information can be stored and retrieved. It allows those using a dynamic IP address to be
registered centrally so users can connect to it by name. See 4.5.3 DDNS for details on using
EverFocus DDNS.
89
NVR8004X
Pre-Installation
Everfocus’ NVR can operate using one of three types of networking connections.
Simple One to One Connection: A simple one to one connection is the simplest type of network
connection. It uses a cross-over cable to make a direct connection from one computer to
another (or in this case a computer to a NVR).
Direct High Speed Modem Connection: A direct modem connection uses a standard network
cable to connect the modem directly to a computer (or in this case a modem to the NVR). This
type of connection only covers single-port modems. For a combination modem/router, use the
setup described below.
Router or LAN Connection – A local area network connection requires either a router or a
pre-existing LAN connection. This is the most common type of connection. A router allows
multiple computers and NVR’s to access each other as well as the Internet. It assigns different
internal IP addresses to the computers.

general settings. Change these settings as described here and click the Save Settings button to
apply your changes or Cancel Changes to cancel your changes.
91
NVR8004X
Click on the “Applications & Gaming” tab.
Applications and Gaming allows you to set up public services on your network, such as web
servers, ftp servers, e-mail servers, or other specialized Internet applications. (Some Internet
applications may not require any forwarding) To forward a port, enter the information on each
line for the criteria required. Descriptions of each criterion are described here.
Application - In this field, enter the name you wish to give the application.
Start/End - Enter the starting number of the range under Start and the ending number under
End.
Protocol - Enter the protocol used for this application, either TCP or UDP, or Both.
IP Address - For each application, enter the IP Address of the PC running the specific
application.
Enable - Click the Enable checkbox to enable port forwarding for the relevant application.
When finished making changes, click the Save Settings button to apply your changes or Cancel
Changes to cancel them.
Here is an example for how the port information might look:
HTTP 80 to 80
Both 192.168.1.50 Enable
Where 192.168.1.50 is the IP address of the NVR on the LAN, and the default port 80 is in use.
Note: If you changed port 80 in the NVR’s Network Menu, open that port instead of 80.
92
NVR8004X
