Wiring Requirements
ATTENTION
•
Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your Moxa VPort P06-1MP-M12.
•
Calculate the maximum possible current in each power wire and common wire. Observe all electrical codes
dictating the maximum current allowable for each wire size.
•
If the current goes above the maximum ratings, the wiring could overheat, causing serious damage to your
equipment.
You should also pay attention to the following:
•
Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power wiring and device wiring paths must
cross make sure the wires are perpendicular at the intersection point.
NOTE: Do not run signal or communications wiring and power wiring in the same wire conduit. To avoid
interference, wires with different signal characteristics should be routed separately.
•
You can use the type of signal transmitted through a wire to determine which wires should be kept separate.
The rule of thumb is that wiring that shares similar electrical characteristics can be bundled together.
•
Keep input wiring and output wiring separated.
•
We strongly advise labeling the wiring to all devices in the system.

Client Settings
Users can configure the following functions in Client Settings.
1. Receiving Stream: Shows the encoding algorithm currently being used. The VPort P06-1MP-M12 features
2 built-in encode engines to generate a maximum of 3 simultaneous video streams. Each client can select
the H.264 video streams from Stream 1, or the MJPEG/ H,264 video stream from Stream 2. To configure
these video streams, please go to:
System Configuration/Video/Video Performance.
2. Media Options: Enable or disable the video or audio transmission.
3. Protocol Options: Choose one of four protocols to optimize your usage—Multicast (RTSP or Push) or
Unicast (UDP, TCP, HTTP).
•
Multicast protocol can be used to send a single video stream to multiple clients. In this case, a lot of
bandwidth can be saved since only one video stream is transmitted over the network. However, the
network gateway (e.g., a switch) must support the multicast protocol (e.g., IGMP snooping). Otherwise,
the multicast video transmission will not be successful.
 RTSP: Enables the multicast video stream to be sent in RTSP control, which means the multicast video
stream will be sent only if it receives the client’s request.
 Push: Enables the multicast video stream to be sent in Push control, which means that after this setting
is selected the multicast video stream will be sent continuously even without any client request.
•
Unicast protocol is used to send a single video stream to one client.
 UDP can be used to produce audio and video streams that are more real-time. However, some packets
may be lost due to network burst traffic, and images may become blurred.
 TCP can be used to prevent packet loss, which results in a more accurate video display. The downside
of using TCP is that the real-time delay is worse than with UDP protocol.
 HTTP can be used to prevent being blocked by a router’s firewall. The downside of using HTTP is that the
real-time delay is worse than with UDP protocol.
•
Network Interface designates the connection interface for multicast video stream selection. The box lists
the current NIC interfaces. Select which NIC interface will receive multicast streams.
Once the IP camera is connected successfully, Protocol Options will indicate the selected protocol. The selected
protocol will be stored on the user’s PC, and will be used for the next connection.
NOTE
For multicast video stream settings, please refer to System Configuration  Network  Multicast.

Network
General Network Settings
The General Network Settings page includes some basic but important network configurations that enable
the VPort to be connected to a TCP/IP network.
Access Method
VPort products support the DHCP protocol, which means that the VPort can get its IP address from a DHCP
server automatically when it is connected to a TCP/IP network. The Administrator should determine if it is more
appropriate to use DHCP, or assign a fixed IP.

NOTE
Use the IP address assigned by the administrator.
We strongly recommend that the administrator assign a fixed IP address to the VPort, since all of the functions
and applications provided by the VPort are active when the VPort is connected to the network. Use DHCP to
determine if the VPort’s IP address may change when then network environment changes, or the IP address is
occupied by other clients.
Auto Configuration
Since configuring a large number of devices one by one can be extremely time-consuming, DHCP Opt 66/67
provides a mechanism whereby configurations can be saved on a TFTP server. Once a new device is installed,
the configurations can be downloaded to this new device automatically. By doing this, the installer can save a
lot of time and effort in mass device installation. Follow the steps below to use the auto-configuration function
via Opt 66/67.
Step 1:
When VPort P06-1MP-M12 enables the auto-configuration function, it will ask for the IP address from the DHCP
server, and the path of the TFTP server and configuration file.
Step 2:
Once the VPort P06-1MP-M12 completes the IP settings, it will acquire the configuration file from the TFTP
server, and check if this configuration file is correct or not.

RTSP Streaming
The VPort P06-1MP-M12 supports standard RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) streaming, which means that
all devices and software that support RTSP can directly acquire and view the video images sent from the VPort
P06-1MP-M12 without any proprietary codec or SDK installations. This makes network system integration
much more convenient. For different connection types, the access name is different. For UDP and TCP streams,
the access name is udpStream. For HTTP streams, the access name is moxa-cgi/udpstream_ch<channel
number>. For multicast streams, the access name is multicastStream_ch<channel number>. You can
access the media through the following URL: rtsp://<IP address>:<RTSP port>/<Access name> for
software that supports RTSP.

NOTE
The video performance of the VPort P06-1MP-M12 may vary when using other media players. For example, you
will notice a greater delay when viewing the VPort P06-1MP-M12’s video from the VLC player compared to
viewing it directly from the VPort P06-1MP-M12’s built-in web server. In addition, viewing the VPort
P06-1MP-M12’s video from the VLC player through a router or Internet gateway could result in a broken
connection.
NOTE
For the time being, the VPort P06-1MP-M12’s RTSP video/audio stream can be identified and viewed by Apple
QuickTime Ver. 6.5 and above, and the VLC media player. System integrators can use these 2 media players
to view the VPort P06-1MP-M12’s video directly, without needing to use the VPort’s SDK to create customized
software.

Dynamic DNS
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) is a combination of DHCP, DNS, and client registration. DDNS
allows administrators to alias the VPort’s dynamic IP address to a static hostname in any of the domains
provided by the DDNS service providers listed on the VPort’s Network/DDNS configuration page. DDNS makes
it easier to access the VPort from various locations on the Internet.

Multicast
The VPort P06-1MP-M12 supports the advanced Multicast network protocol IGMP, which can greatly improve
the efficiency of network traffic. In this section, we explain multicasts, multicast filtering, and how multicast
can be implemented on your VPort.
What is Multicast?
A multicast is a packet that is intended for “one-to-many” and “many-to-many” communication. Users
explicitly request to participate in the communication by joining an end-station to a specific multicast group. If
the network is set up correctly, a multicast can only be sent to an end-station or a subset of end-stations on a
LAN or VLAN that belongs to the relevant multicast group. Multicast group members can be distributed across
multiple subnetworks. Therefore, multicast transmissions can occur within a campus LAN or over a WAN. In
4-15
VPort P06-1MP-M12 EN 50155 IP Camera
System Configuration
addition, networks that support IP multicast send only one copy of the desired information across the network.
The packets are only replicated if they reach a network node that links to two or more members of the multicast
network. Transmitting packets in this way makes more efficient use of network bandwidth. A multicast packet
is identified by the presence of a multicast group address in the destination address field of the packet’s IP
header.
Benefits of Multicast
The benefits of using IP multicast are that it:
•
Enables the simultaneous delivery of information to many receivers in the most efficient, logical way.
•
Reduces the load on the source (for example, a server) because it does not need to produce multiple copies
of the same data.
•
Makes efficient use of network bandwidth and scales well as the number of participants or collaborators
expands.
•
Works with other IP protocols and services, such as Quality of Service (QoS).
There are situations where a multicast approach is more logical and efficient than a unicast approach. A typical
use of multicasts is in video-conferencing, in which high volumes of traffic need to be sent to several
end-stations simultaneously, but for which broadcasting that traffic to all end-stations would seriously reduce
network performance. Several industrial automation protocols, such as Allen-Bradley, EtherNet/IP, Siemens
Profibus, and Foundation Fieldbus HSE (High Speed Ethernet), use the multicast approach. These industrial
Ethernet protocols use publisher/subscriber communications models by multicasting packets that could flood a
network with heavy traffic. IGMP provides the ability to prune multicast traffic so that it travels only to those
end destinations that require the traffic, thus reducing the amount of traffic on the Ethernet LAN.

NOTE
System Configuration
The VPort P06-1MP-M12 is the source that delivers the multicast video stream. To benefit from the Multicast
protocol, the gateway or network switch should support the multicast filtering function (such as IGMP
Snooping) so that the multicast stream is delivered correctly and precisely. To learn more about IGMP
Snooping, refer to the Moxa EtherDeviceTM series Industrial Ethernet Switch user’s manual.

Accessible IP Settings allow you to add or remove “Legal” remote host IP addresses to prevent unauthorized
access. Access to the VPort is controlled by IP address. That is, if a host’s IP address is in the accessible IP table,
then the host will be allowed access to the VPort. Administrators can allow one of the following cases by setting
this parameter:
•
Only one host with a specific IP address can access the VPort. Enter “IP address/255.255.255.255” (e.g.,

(AGC)
The AGC function provides a clear image in low light conditions. 16x
An amplifier is used to boost the video signal when the light
dims to increase the camera’s sensitivity. In some bright
environments, the amplifier may be overloaded, resulting in a
distorted video signal. For this reason, it may be necessary to
monitor the signal level with the AGC control circuit, and in
some cases AGC will need to be switched off.

Video Performance
The VPort P06-1MP-M12 can send a maximum of three simultaneous video streams: two H.264 and one MJEPG.
In fact, the VPort P06-1MP-M12 has two encoder engines. The first encoder engine can generate one
completely independent H.264 video stream, which means that its resolution, FPS, and video quality can be
configured independently. The second encoder engine can generate one H.264 video stream and one MJPEG
video stream. Because both the H.264 and MJPEG video streams come from the same encoder engine, their
resolutions must be the same, but the FPS and the Video Quality can be configured separately. The
administrator can set the Resolution, Max. Frame Rate, and Video Quality on this web page.

The administrator can set the image quality to one of 5
Good
standards: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, or
Excellent. The VPort will tune the bandwidth and FPS
automatically to the optimum combination.
NOTE
The image quality, FPS, and bandwidth are influenced significantly by network throughput, system network
bandwidth management, applications the VPort runs (such as VMD), how complicated the image is, and the
performance of your PC or notebook when displaying images. The administrator should take into consideration
all of these variables when designing the video over IP system, and when specifying the requirements for the
video system.

DynaStreamTM
DynaSteamTM is a unique and innovative function that allows for adaptive frame rates in response to events on
the network, such as event triggers and system commands. When network traffic becomes congested,
DynaStream™ allows VPort products to respond to CGI, SNMP, and Modbus commands from SCADA systems
(as well as the MxNVR-MO4’s VMD, DI, CGI events, and video loss triggers), and automatically decrease the
frame rates to reduce bandwidth consumption. This reserves bandwidth for the SCADA system to maintain
Quality of Service (QoS) and guarantees that the SCADA performance will not be impacted by video traffic. For
example, the frame rate can be set to low during regular streaming to reduce bandwidth usage and
automatically switch to a high frame rate during triggered events to ensure quick transmission of critical video
data or video streams, or to provide detailed visual images for problem analysis.
NOTE
To enable the DynaStream function from CGI commands and Modbus TCP, refer to the CGI Commands User’s
Manual for VPort SDK PLUS.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q:
What if I forget my password?
A:
Every access to the IP camera needs authentication, unless the admin password is set as blank. If you are
one of the managed users, you will need to ask the administrator for the password. If you are the
administrator, there is no way to recover the admin password. The only way to regain access to the IP
camera is to utilize the RESET button to restore the factory settings (see Chapter 1 for details).
Q:
Why can’t I see the video from the IP camera after it has been authenticated?
A:
There are several possible reasons:
(a) If the IP camera is installed correctly and you are accessing the IP camera for the first time using
Internet Explorer, adjust the security level of Internet Explorer to allow installation of plug-ins.
(b) If the problem still exists, the number of users accessing the IP camera at the same time may exceed
the maximum that the system allows.
(c) If the video is still not displayed, please try to run the Factory default to see if it is working properly.
Q:
What is the plug-in for?
A:
The plug-in provided by the IP camera is used to display motion pictures. The plug-in is needed because
Internet Explorer does not support streaming technology. If your system does not allow installation of
plug-in software, the security level of the web browser may need to be lowered. Consult with the network
supervisor in your office before adjusting the security level.
Q:
Why is the timestamp different from the system time of my PC or notebook?
A:
The timestamp is based on the system time of the IP camera. It is maintained by an internal real-time
clock, and automatically synchronizes with the time server if the video encoder is connected to the
Internet and the function is enabled. Differences of several hours may result from the time zone setting.
Q:
How many users are allowed to access the IP camera at the same time?
A:
Basically, there is no limitation. However the video quality also depends on the network. To achieve the
best effect, the VPort P06-1MP-M12 IP camera will allow 5 video streams for udp/tcp/http connections.
We recommend using an additional web server that retrieves images from the IP camera periodically if
you need to host a large number of users.
Q:
What is the IP camera’s video rate?
A:
The codec can process 30 frames per second internally. However the actual performance depends on
several factors:
1. Network throughput
2. Bandwidth share
3. Number of users
4. More complicated objects result in larger image files
5. The speed of the PC or notebook that is responsible for displaying images
VPort P06-1MP-M12 EN 50155 IP Camera
Frequently Asked Questions
Q:
How can I keep the IP camera as private as possible?
A:
The IP camera is designed for surveillance purposes and has many flexible interfaces. The user
authentication and special confirmation when installing can keep the video encoder from unauthorized
access. You may also change the HTTP port to a non-public number. Check the system log to examine any
abnormal activities and trace the origins.
Q:
Why can’t I access the IP camera when I set up some options in the application?
A:
When the IP camera is triggered by events, video and snapshots will take more time to write to memory.
If the events occur too often, the system will always be busy storing video and images. We recommend
using sequential mode or an external recorder program to record motion pictures if the event occurs
frequently. If you prefer to retrieve images by FTP, the value could be smaller since an FTP server
responds more quickly than a web server. Once the system is too busy to configure, use the restore
factory default and reset button to save the system.
