TCP: Usually select this.
When TCP is selected as the communication port,
HTTP communication is adopted for video/audio
communication.
HTTP is the protocol used for reading a usual Web
page.
In an environment capable of reading Web page,
you can watch or listen to the video/audio by
selecting TCP port.
UDP (Unicast): When UDP (Unicast) is selected
as the communication port, RTP (Real-time
Transport Protocol) is adopted for video/audio
communication. As RTP is the protocol for running
video/audio data, video/audio can be played
smoother than when TCP (HTTP) is selected. If the
fire-wall is installed between the camera and the
computer, or depending on the network
environment, the video/audio may not played

case, select TCP.
UDP (Multicast): You can select this when the
multicast streaming (page 34) is On. When UDP

Installer to the Camera
Saving a custom image to the camera
1
After a short time a window will open displaying
the files on the CD-ROM.
2
Click the Setup icon of Custom Homepage
Installer.
The “File Download” dialog opens.
3
Click Open.
The installer starts and notes are displayed.
You can save a custom image to the camera in spite of
the panorama image shot by the camera.
Prepare the image to conform to the following
requirements:
• File format: JPEG or Bitmap
• Image size: 320 × 90 pixels (horizontal/vertical)
The camera does not support use of images that do not
conform to the above conditions.
1
Click the File open button.
The File dialog opens.
2
3
Select the image you have prepared.
4
Click the Send button to transmit the prepared
image to the camera.
The image is saved in the camera.
Others
You can use the saved panorama image when you
control panning and tilting from the main viewer.
Select the view angle of the image to be created on
Angle setting.
To limit the pan/tilt range of the camera to the
selected view angle, check the Lock check box.
You can use the saved image when you control panning
and tilting from the main viewer.
Tip
The panorama image is the still image converted from
the image taken when you were going to create a
panorama image with “SNC panorama creator”. When
the camera is moved or when the layout around the
camera is changed, create the panorama image again.
Note
If you click “Save this program to disk” on the “File
Download” dialog, the
CustomHomepageInstaller.exe file will be saved on
the computer. Double-click the saved file to start it.

Assigning the IP
Address to the Camera
Using ARP Commands
This section explains how to assign an IP address to the
camera using ARP (Address Resolution Protocol)
commands without using the supplied setup program.
Note
Enter the ARP commands within 5 minutes of the power
of the camera being turned on.
1
Open the DOS window on the computer.
2
Enter the IP address and the MAC address of the
camera to assign a new IP address, using the
following ARP commands.
arp -s <Camera's IP address> <Camera's MAC address>
ping -t <Camera's IP address>
The following page will appear after a while.
Example:
3
Others
arp -s 192.168.0.100 08-00-46-21-00-00
ping -t 192.168.0.100
When the following line is displayed on the DOS
window, hold down Ctrl and press C.
Reply from 192.168.0.100:bytes=32 time...
You will normally receive a reply after about 5
repetitions of “Request time out.”
Note
After displaying this page, the camera will be
adjusted and rebooted automatically in two
minutes.
13 Click Finish to exit the program.
If you do not receive a reply, check the following:
– Did you enter the ARP commands within 5 minutes of
the camera being turned on?
If not, turn off the camera and restart the operation.
– Is the NETWORK indicator on the camera flashing?
If the indicator goes off, the network connection has a
problem. Connect the network correctly.
– Did you enter the IP address previously used for
another device?
Assign a new IP address to the camera.
– Do the computer and the camera have the same
network address?
If not, set the same network address on the computer
and the camera.

Using the SNMP
This unit supports SNMP (Simple Network
Management Protocol). You can read MIB-2 objects
and write some MIB-2 objects using software such as
SNMP manager software. This unit also supports the
coldStart trap which occurs when the power is turned on
or the unit restarts, and the Authentication failure trap
which informs of an illegal access using SNMP.
Using CGI commands, you can set community name
and access limitation, reading/writing right, host to send
traps, and some MIB-2 objects. To allow these settings,
you need authentication by the camera administrator.
1. Inquiry Commands
You can check the SNMP Agent settings using the
following CGI commands.
Others
<Method>
GET, POST
<Command>
“http://ip_adr/snmpdconf/inquiry.cgi?inqjs=snmp
(JavaScript parameter format)
http://ip_adr/snmpdconf/inquiry.cgi?inq=snmp
(standard format)
With the above inquiry, you can obtain the following
setting information. The following explains the setting
information using the inqjs=snmp (JavaScript
parameter) format.
var sysDescr=“\“SONY Network Camera SNCRZ25\””
var sysObjectID=“1.3.6.1.4.1.122.8501”
var sysLocation=“\“\””
var sysContact=“\“\””
var sysName=“\“\””
var snmpEnableAuthenTraps=“1”
var community=“public,0.0.0.0,read,1”
var community=“private,192.168.0.101,write,2”
var trap=“public,192.168.0.101.1”

1 describes the case of “mib-2.system. sysDescr.0”.
You cannot change this parameter.
2 describes the case of “mib-2.system.
sysObjectID.0”. You cannot change this parameter.
3 describes the case of “mib-2.system.
sysLocation.0”. This field is used to describe
information on the location of this camera. Nothing
is set at the factory.
76
Using the SNMP
4 describes the case of “mib-2.system. sysContact.0”.
This field is used to describe the information on
administrator of this camera. Nothing is set at the
factory.
5 describes the case of “mib-2.system. sysName.0”.
This field is used to describe administration mode
of this camera. Nothing is set at the factory.
6 describes the case of “mib-2.snmpEnable
AuthenTraps.0”. This example shows when “1”
(enable) is set. With this setting, a trap occurs when
there is an Authentication failure. When “2”
(disable) is set, no Authentication failure trap
occurs.
7 describes the community name and the reading/
writing attributes. This example shows the
identification number “ID=1”, the community
name public, and enables read from any IP address
(0.0.0.0).
8 describes the community name and the reading/
writing attributes, similarly to 7. This example
shows the identification number ID=2, the
community name “private”, and enables “read/
write” by the SNMP request packet from the host
“192.168.0.101”.
9 describes the host name to send a trap. This
example shows the identification number “ID=1”,
the community name “public”, and enables sending
of traps to the host having the IP address
“192.168.0.101”.
2. Setting Commands
The unit supports the following setting commands of
SNMP.
<Method>
GET, POST

<IpAddressString>
Set the host you want to send traps to. <ID>
describes the setting identification number (1 to 8),
<communityName> describes the community
name to send traps to, and <IpAddressString>
