Networking Overview
This chapter will try to give you a detailed instruction on how to network
the DVR. Before we begin the process of networking your digital recorder we
should have a working knowledge of what a network is and how it works. This
will be a helpful in completing the networking process.
Introduction to TCP/IP
TCP/IP is the suite of protocols used by the Internet and most LANs
(Local Area Networks) throughout the world. In TCP/IP, every host (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, a computer with the
hostname Workstation could have an IP address of 192.168.1.127.
You should avoid giving two or more computers the same IP address by
using the range of IP addresses that are reserved for private, local area networks;
this range of IP addresses usually begins with the octets 192.168. The first three
octets of an IP address should be 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.
Subnet Masks
Each host in a LAN has a subnet mask. The subnet mask is an octet that uses the
number 255 to represent the network address portion of the IP address and a zero to
identify the host portion of the address. For example, the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 is
used by each host to determine which LAN or class it belongs to. The zero at the end
of the subnet mask represents a unique host within that network. Basically the subnet
mask represents the city you live in for your home address, but in this case you are
stating the network you belong too.
56
E V E R F O C U S
E L E C T R O N I C S
C O R P O R A T I O N
Gateway Address
Each host in a LAN has a gateway. A gateway address is composed of four
octets (numbers in the range of 0 to 255) separated by decimal points. The
gateway address is used to uniquely identify a host or computer on the LAN
which assigns the IP addresses to your network. For example, a Linksys router has
an IP address of 192.168.1.1. If you were using this type of router within your
LAN, then your gateway would be the IP address of the Linksys router. The
reason this would be your gateway is because the Linksys is assigning the IP
addresses for your network therefore the Linksys would be the gateway to your
network. This is similar to the zip code of your address.
Virtual Ports
A port number represents an endpoint or "channel" for network
communications. Port numbers allow different applications on the same computer
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 Web sites a person visits on the Internet use a URL like
the following:
http://www.everfocus.com:8100/
In this example, the number 8100 refers to the port number used by the
Web browser to connect to the Web server. Normally, a Web site uses port
number 80 and this number need not 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 low end of the
range (such as 80 for HTTP). This could be similar to the front door of your
house. Without the door to the house being open you could not enter it. 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 or what it is
addressing.
Please Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network
technology. A port can refer to a physical connection point for peripheral
devices such as serial, parallel, and USB ports. The term port also refers to
certain Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or
router.

Pre-Installation
Before we begin with the installation we must ask ourselves a few
questions in order to figure out where to begin with networking our DVR’s.
Do you have Hi-speed Internet?
______________
There are many types of high speed Internet available. Three commonly
used ones are T1, Cable, and DSL (in order of speed).
ƒ
Please Note: Everfocus suggests having a minimum upload speed
of 256KBps. This can be addressed by the Internet Service
Provider.
Who is your Internet provider?
ƒ
______________
Please confirm that your internet service provider that our upload
speed is at least 256KBps.
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 is
installed to allow multiple computers to access the Internet through the
same external IP address. It in turn assigns different internal IP addresses
to local computers for this specific purpose.
Do you have a static IP address?
______________
A Static IP address means you use the same IP address every time you log
on to the Internet. With a static IP address, other Internet users always
know the identity of your computer and can easily connect with it. That
way, you can host a website, email server, or other type of server
connection. Everfocus suggest using a static IP address. If your Internet
provider does not offer a static IP address you have the option to use a
dynamic IP address. This will be explained in more detail later on in the
chapter.
Do you have a dynamic IP address?
______________
A Dynamic IP address means your IP address changes each time you make
a connection to the Internet. We recommend asking your Internet service
provider for a Static IP address. If this is not a possibility, you may
purchase a router (we suggest a Linksys or D-link router) which supports
58
E V E R F O C U S
E L E C T R O N I C S
C O R P O R A T I O N
DDNS. DDNS is a Dynamic Domain Name Server, a service that
provides a central (public) database where DNS 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.
What type of DVR are you installing?
______________
Everfocus EDR series: EDR 400, 1600 or 1680
Everfocus EDSR series: EDSR 110, 400H, 400M, 400, 900, or 1600
What Type of Network Connection do you have?
Everfocus DVR’s can operate using three distinct types of networking
connections.
1. Simple One to One Connection: A simple one to one connection is the
most simple network connection. Basically it is a connection between a
Computer and Another Computer or in this case a DVR using a crossover cable. (See page on how to install this type of connection)
2. Direct High Speed Modem Connection: A direct high speed modem
connection is a network connection from the modem directly to a
computer or in this case the DVR. (See page on how to install this type of
connection)
3. Router or LAN Connection – A local area network connection either
requires a router or a pre-existing LAN connection. Typically this type of
connection is the most commonly used application. A router allows
multiple computers and DVR’s to access each other as well as the Internet.
It assigns different internal IP addresses to the computers.

Troubleshooting
If you have difficulty operating your system, run through the following checklist to see if
you can solve the problem.
‰
The DVR will not go into record mode?
ƒ
‰
Make sure the HDD is locked in with the keys. Also check to make sure the
hard drives are set to Master. A diagram located on the Hard Drive Label will
show you how to set the drive to master.
DVR only records for a few hours?
ƒ
If motion recording is not properly set up this problem will arise. The
recommended motion set up for maximum video storage (HDD).
1)
Press the menu button, and use the JOG Dial to traverse through the
menu until Motion Setting Menu is reached.
2)
Under the OP option, select the cameras or channels that you want to
record on motion detection and turn them on the ON position.
3)
Set the desired Alarm Record and Quality to your preference. (NOTE:
Alarm record is representing the IPS recorded when motion is detected on
a camera)
4)
From this page you can also press the arrows to pull up and edit the
masking grid. Exit out of the Motion menu when you are finished.
5)
Next use the JOG Dial to traverse until Normal Record Setting menu is
reached.
6)
Set the Normal Speed at a lower recording speed (IPS) anywhere between
0.1-5 IPS; refer to Appendix A & B. (select desired quality)
7)
There is also the option to record Pre-Alarm. This will record at the same
IPS set for Alarm prior to the Alarm or Motion activity.
8)
Lastly, you must make sure the REC light is continually illuminated.
**Explanation: The DVR will record at a lower IPS when there is no motion,
which will conserve HDD space. When motion is detected by a camera, the
DVR will record at a higher IPS. This will insure a higher resolution during
motion events play back.

The DVR displays no picture?
ƒ
First question you should ask yourself is the equipment wired properly. Please
see your installation manual for help.
ƒ
The second question to ask yourself0, do all the wires used work properly.
ƒ
The next step is to verify the recorder is getting the correct amount of power.
There is no display coming from one of the channels on the DVR?
ƒ
The first step is to verify is the problem coming from the recorder or the
camera.
ƒ
Simply take a working camera and plug it into the port that seems to not be
working. If you see a picture this means the problem is coming from the camera.
CF R/W error of I/O Error when trying to archive to a compact flash card?
ƒ
This error is usually a file incomparability error with the flash card. One most
common reason would be if you were using a compact flash card made by
Lexar. If you own a lexar Compact flash card please purchase a Sandisk or
Kingston compact flash card. Also please make sure the Flash Card is greater
than 32 MB.
ƒ
If you own a compabile flash card then make sure the flash card is formatted in
Fat32 file system. See your Windows Manual on How to format the flash card in
Windows.
I cannot connect to the recorder via the internet?
1.
The first thing to check is does your internet provider block any ports.
2.
Are you using the IP address from the Internet Service provider?
3.
If you are using a router are the ports in your router opened?
(NOTE: Please be sure that ports 80, 1111, 2222, 3333, 4444, 6666 are open.)
4.
If you are using Windows XP please update the Java Virtual Machine. This can
be done by going to http://java.sun.com and downloading the file called
JavaVM.
If you have a Dynamic IP address from your Internet Service Provider.
ƒ
Dynamic IP addresses can cause conflicts when trying to connect to DVR(s) on
a high speed internet connection. With new router technology (DDNS), it
allows you to overcome this problem. DDNS lets you assign a fixed host and
domain name to a dynamic Internet IP address. It is useful when you are hosting
your own DVR, website, FTP server, or other server behind the Router. Before
using this feature, you need to sign up for DDNS service at www.dyndns.org or
100
www.tzo.com. (Preferred routers: Linksys BEFSR41 V3 or DLINK DI624 or any
router that offers DDNS.
