2.2.2. Using a Dynamic IP Address
You can use a router with your Dynamic IP broadband modem. In this case, you should set the
configuration of a router properly for network connection between NVR and Net/Web Viewer.
Please follow the instructions in next section to configure your router correctly.
Home/Office Network
Internet
If your Broadband Modem does not support internal loop back (port forwarding) function and you
want to monitor NVR using a PC located in same Intranet, you should use Direct IP instead of
DVRNS in the connection menu of NetViewer. If your PC is located outside of Intranet, you can
use both DVRNS and Direct IP to connect to NVR even though your Broadband Modem has
limited features.

3.1.2. IP Camera Registration
Registering cameras on the VIPER NVR can be achieved using different methods. The chosen
method is dependant on the camera make and model, and whether it is connected directly to the
NVRs in built PoE switch. The 4 methods are as follows:
1.
Auto Detection
This is the simplest and quickest method, it can be used for all cameras within the Vista VK2 range, or
for other third party manufacturers camera that support “Zero Config”.
This method only works for cameras that are connected directly to the NVRs PoE ports and have ID
and Password of “admin”. This is the default settings for the VK2 range.
2. NVR Search and manual registration
This method can be used for cameras ( Including VK2 range ) that are connected via a switch to the
WAN port on the rear of the NVR, and for cameras that do not support “zero config” but are connected
to the in built PoE switch.
3. Manual adding of ONVIF cameras
This method can be used to try and connect cameras that cannot be connected by either of the 2
previous methods. Cameras must be Onvif compliant to version S for this method to operate.
4. Manual adding of cameras RTSP streams
This method can be used to try and connect cameras that cannot be connected by any of the 3
previous methods.
The following sections describe the process for registering camera by each method:
VIPER user manual V1.0
23
3.1.2.1 Auto Detection
This is the simplest method of registering cameras; it can be used with any of the Vista VK2 range of
cameras or third party manufacturer’s cameras that support “Zero Config”
The cameras must be connected directly to the PoE ports of the NVRs built in switch, and the
cameras ID and Password must both be set to “admin”, and the network settings, set to DHCP( This is
the default setting for the VK2 range.)
Connect the cameras to the PoE ports of the NVR, the physical port numbers relate to the screen
segments on the 16 way split screen display: 1 = top left, 16 = bottom right.
Power up the NVR, it will take a minute or so to boot up, then will automatically detect the connected
cameras and apply IP address using DHCP.
Wait for a short while, icons showing a camera and rotating blue dots will be displayed in screen
segments relating to port positions on which cameras have been detected.
After a couple of minutes the images from the cameras will be displayed.
Once all the cameras are displayed, the stream and image settings can be configured using the IP
Camera Setup” and “Image Setup” sections with in the NVRs main menu. For more details see the
following sections in this manual.
VIPER user manual V1.0
24
3.1.2.2 NVR search and manual registration
Used to register cameras connected via the WAN port, or cameras on the PoE ports which do not
support “Zero Config”
To register cameras using this method the “Auto Detection” function must be turned “off” for the
relevant channels. To do this got to:
Main Menu > Audio / Video > IP Camera Registration
The following screen will be displayed:

menu page. If cameras have previously been connected they will be displayed in the list with their
channel numbers in the Registration column.
To search for more cameras on the system either a “Quick” or “Detailed” search can be used.
If the “Detail” box is ticked, and the “Search” button is pressed the NVR will search the network for
other cameras and try to interrogate their ID and Password.
If the “Quick” box is ticked then the NVR will only search for the cameras identity and IP address.
Once the search is completed the list will appear as below:
cameras which have not been allocated to the NVR will have the word “Registration” displayed in the
Right hand Registration column.
To allocate cameras to certain channels click on the word “Registration” the following box will appear:

POS Configuration
When the POS device transmits ASCII data, the NVR can record without any interface devices. (ex.,
AVE device – VSSI Pro) However if the POS device is sending data other than ASCII protocol, it is
recommended to use the AVE interface device.
For example, the AVE’s VSSI –PRO device is point to point, (ASCII standard protocol) but if the user
would like to use multiple POS with the NVR, it is needed to use AVE’s VSI –PRO Max (VSI-ADD)
interface. Further details, please refer to the VSI-Pro Max Networking as below and AVE’s manual.
For connection of POS/ATM device to the NVR, the user must supply a USB to RS232 converter cable
as like the image below. Depending on the USB to RS232 converter cable manufacturers, some
converters may not be compatible with the NVR due to their difference in converter chip specification.
It is strongly recommended to test the compatibility (connection) of USB to RS-232 converter with the
NVR.

Monitor
Typical Configuration using AVE interface device for multi-POS
Black: Video from the camera goes to NVR.
Red: Data from each VSI-PRO-MAX is daisy chained to a master VSI-PRO-MAX or Hydra, this data is
then consolidated and transmitted to a compatible NVR in an addressable format.
Optional: The optional EX function gives you 2 hard alarm outputs to trigger alarming VCR’s, Quads,
or other alarming devices for Exception reporting allowing easy review of exceptional sales, or Instant
reviewing on NVR’s.
VSI-Pro Max Networking
The VSI-Pro Max as a slave allows the connection of multiple cash register terminals to a master unit
for the purpose of transaction logging.

You can connect the NVR with POS or Keyboard
through the RS232. With POS systems, the NVR
can communicate through RS232 and network. For
the POS system, the NVR can integrate the text
content and even search the record through the
info. The series NVR also support network
keyboard operation. You can operate the NVR
from the keyboard controls instead of using the
control pad on the front of the unit.
To connect a Network Keyboard to the NVR:
1. Assemble the keyboard according to the instructions in its accompanying installation manual.
2. Connect the keyboard into the RS232 ports on the NVR or through network.
ATM Configuration

NETWORK TROUBLESHOOTING
You must set your network environment properly to use remote control software (Net Viewer or Web
Viewer).
1.Ping Test through your Router
Ping is a command-line tool used to check whether another computer is reachable from your own.
You can use the command either from the Windows Command Prompt or from a Linux terminal. The
following shows the sample output under Windows: Type “ping NVR IP address” (e.g. ping
192.168.0.26). If NVR and your computer are in same intranet (LAN) and are connected each other
through router, you will see successful ping test.
If you get time out message at ping test, you should fix this problem before going to next step.
• Check if NVR and computer are in same intranet.
• Check if there are other computers or devices that have same IP address in same
intranet.
• Check if IP address, subnet mask and gateway address are correct.
2. Direct ping test without Router
You can do ping test simply with direct connection between PC and NVR. If it fails, please check
your intranet (LAN) configuration.
•
Connect PC and NVR using Crossover LAN cable (usually orange color).
