Set the Root Password
To access the Axis product, you must set the password for the default administrator user root. This is done in the Configure Root
Password dialog, which opens when the product is accessed for the first time.
To prevent network eavesdropping, the root password can be set via an encrypted HTTPS connection, which requires an HTTPS
certificate. HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over SSL) is a protocol used to encrypt traffic between web browsers and servers. The
HTTPS certificate ensures encrypted exchange of information. See HTTPS on page 48.
The default administrator user name root is permanent and cannot be deleted. If the password for root is lost, the product must be
reset to the factory default settings. See Reset to Factory Default Settings on page 59.
To set the password via a standard HTTP connection, enter it directly in the dialog.
To set the password via an encrypted HTTPS connection, follow these steps:
1. Click Use HTTPS.
A temporary certificate (valid for one year) is created, enabling encryption of all traffic to and from the product, and the
password can now be set securely.

AXIS Q6045-E Mk II PTZ Dome Network Camera
Media Streams
Media Streams
The Axis product provides several video stream formats. Your requirements and the properties of your network will determine the
type you use.
The Live View page in the product provides access to H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams, and to the list of available stream
profiles. Other applications and clients can access video streams directly, without going via the Live View page.
How to Stream H.264
H.264 can, without compromising image quality, reduce the size of a digital video file by more than 80% compared with the Motion
JPEG format and as much as 50% more than the MPEG-4 standard. This means that much less network bandwidth and storage space
are required for a video file. Or seen another way, much higher video quality can be achieved for a given bit rate.
Deciding which combination of protocols and methods to use depends on your viewing requirements, and on the properties of
your network. The available options in AXIS Media Control are:
Unicast RTP
This unicast method (RTP over UDP) is used
for live unicast video, especially when it is
important to have an up-to-date video stream,
even if some frames are dropped.
Unicasting is used for video-on-demand
transmission so that there is no video traffic
on the network until a client connects and
requests the stream.
Note that there are a maximum of 20
simultaneous unicast connections.
RTP over RTSP
This unicast method (RTP tunneled over RTSP)
is useful as it is relatively simple to configure
firewalls to allow RTSP traffic.
RTP over RTSP over HTTP
This unicast method can be used to traverse
firewalls. Firewalls are commonly configured to
allow the HTTP protocol, thus allowing RTP to
be tunneled.
Multicast RTP
This method (RTP over UDP) should be used for live multicast video. The video stream is always
up-to-date, even if some frames are dropped.
Multicasting provides the most efficient usage of bandwidth when there are large numbers of
clients viewing simultaneously. A multicast cannot however, pass a network router unless the
router is configured to allow this. It is not possible to multicast over the Internet, for example.
Note also that all multicast viewers count as one unicast viewer in the maximum total of 20
simultaneous connections.
AXIS Media Control negotiates with the Axis product to determine the transport protocol to use. The order of priority, listed in the
AMC Control Panel, can be changed and the options disabled, to suit specific requirements.
Note
H.264 is licensed technology. The Axis product includes one H.264 viewing client license. Installing additional unlicensed
copies of the client is prohibited. To purchase additional licenses, contact your Axis reseller.
MJPEG
This format uses standard JPEG still images for the video stream. These images are then displayed and updated at a rate sufficient
to create a stream that shows constantly updated motion.
The Motion JPEG stream uses considerable amounts of bandwidth, but provides excellent image quality and access to every image
contained in the stream. The recommended method of accessing Motion JPEG live video from the Axis product is to use the AXIS
Media Control in Internet Explorer in Windows.
AXIS Media Control (AMC)
AXIS Media Control (AMC) in Internet Explorer in Windows is the recommended method of accessing live video from the Axis product.

AXIS Q6045-E Mk II PTZ Dome Network Camera
Video
H.264
H.264, also known as MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC, is a video compression standard that provides high quality video streams at low bit rates.
An H.264 video stream consists of different types of frames such as I-frames and P-frames. An I-frame is a complete image whereas
P-frames only contain the differences from previous frames.
The H.264 stream settings can be configured from the Video > Video Stream page. Select the H.264 tab. The settings defined in this
page will apply to all H.264 streams that do not use a stream profile.
The GOP length is the number of frames between two consecutive I-frames. Increasing the GOP length may save considerably on
bandwidth requirements in some cases, but may also have an adverse affect on image quality.
The Axis product supports the following H.264 profile(s):
•
Baseline. The Baseline profile is recommended for clients that don’t support CABAC entropy coding.
•
Main. The Main profile provides higher compression with maintained video quality compared to the Baseline profile but
requires more processing power to decode.
The bit rate can be set as Variable bit rate (VBR) or Maximum bit rate (MBR). VBR adjusts the bit rate according to the image
complexity, using up more bandwidth for increased activity in the image, and less for lower image activity. When the activity in
the scene increases, the bit rate would usually increase as well. If there is a surplus in bandwidth, this may not be an issue and
selecting Variable bit rate (VBR) will be sufficient. But if bandwidth is limited, it is recommended to control the bit rate by selecting
Maximum bit rate (MBR). When the activity in the scene increases, VBR adjusts the bit rate according to the complexity, using up
more bandwidth for increased activity in the scene, and less for lower scene activity. MBR allows you to set a target bit rate that
limits the bandwidth consumption.
The MBR target bit rate works like the ceiling of a tent. It limits the bit rate, while maintaining some flexibility. The bit rate
may bounce up and down within the set target but when it nears the set target value, the limitation kicks in. However, because
MBR will always prioritize a continuous video stream, it allows temporary overshoots from the target bit rate. Because setting a
target value prevents the bit rate from increasing, frame rate and image quality are affected negatively. To partly compensate for
this, select which variable shall be prioritized, frame rate or image quality. Not setting a priority means that frame rate and
image quality are equally affected.
The current bit rate can be set to appear as text overlay. Under Overlay Settings, select Include text and enter the modifier
#b in the field.
To apply the settings, click Save.
MJPEG
Sometimes the image size is large due to low light or complex scenery. Adjusting the maximum frame size helps to control the
bandwidth and storage used by the Motion JPEG video stream in these situations. Setting the frame size to the Default setting
provides consistently good image quality at the expense of increased bandwidth and storage usage in low light. Limiting the frame
size optimizes bandwidth and storage usage, but may give poor image quality. To prevent increased bandwidth and storage usage,
the maximum frame size should be set to an optimal value.
Stream Profiles
A stream profile is a set of predefined stream settings including resolution, compression, frame rate and overlay settings. Stream
profiles can be used:
•
When setting up recording using action rules. See Events on page 39.
•
When setting up continuous recording. See Continuous Recording on page 46.
•
In the Live View page – select the stream profile from the Stream profile drop-down list.
For quick setup, use one of the predefined stream profiles. Each predefined profile has a descriptive name, indicating its purpose. If
required, the predefined stream profiles can be modified and new customized stream profiles can be created.
To create a new profile or modify an existing profile, go to Setup > Video > Stream Profiles.

AXIS Q6045-E Mk II PTZ Dome Network Camera
Video
To select a default stream profile for the Live View page, go to Setup > Live View Config.
Camera Settings
The Video > Camera Settings page provides access to advanced image settings for the Axis product.
Image Appearance
To change Image Appearance go to the menus under Setup > Video > Camera Settings.
Increasing the Color level increases the color saturation. The value 100 gives maximum color saturation and the value 0 gives
minimum color saturation.
The image Brightness can be adjusted in the range 0–100, where a higher value produces a brighter image.
Increasing the Sharpness can increase bandwidth usage. A sharper image might increase image noise especially in low light
conditions. A lower setting reduces image noise, but the whole image will appear less sharp.
White Balance
To change this setting go to Setup > Video > Camera Settings
White balance is used to make colors in the image appear the same regardless of the color temperature of the light source. The Axis
product can be set to automatically identify the light source and compensate for its color. Alternatively, select the type of light
source from the drop-down list. For a description of each available setting, see the online help
.
Wide Dynamic Range
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) processing balances the brightest and darkest sections of a scene to produce an image that is balanced
in lighting to provide more detail. Wide dynamic range can improve the exposure when there is a considerable contrast between light
and dark areas in the image. There are three different WDR modes:
WDR 1 - contrast
WDR 2 - double exposure
WDR 3 - contrast and double exposure
The different WDR settings adjust for various amounts of contrast in the image. Use a higher WDR number for a higher contrast.
Enable WDR in intense backlight conditions. Disable WDR in low light conditions for optimal exposure.
Exposure Settings
Exposure control - These settings is used to adapt to the amount of light used. Automatic is the default setting and it can be
used in most situations. The shutter speed is automatically set to produce optimum image quality. Use Manual if you have special
requirements for the exposure setting and wish to lock it. Select the desired exposure time from the drop-down list.
Max exposure time - Select the maximum exposure time from the drop-down list. Increasing the exposure time will improve image
quality, but decrease the frame rate. There may also be an increase in motion blur.
Allow slow shutter - Select Allow slow shutter to let the camera decrease the shutter speed in low light to improve image brightness.
Enable Backlight compensation - Select Enable Backlight compensation if a bright spot of light, for example a light bulb, causes
other areas in the image to appear too dark.
Highlight Compensation - The Axis product will detect a bright light from a source such as a torch or car headlights and mask that
image area. This setting is useful when the camera operates in a very dark area where a bright light may overexpose part of the image
and prevent the operator from seeing other parts of the scene.
20
AXIS Q6045-E Mk II PTZ Dome Network Camera
Video
Max gain - Measured in decibels (dB), gain describes the amount of amplification applied to a signal, in this case the visual
information in the image. A high level of amplification may provide a better image in very low light situations. A high gain will also
increase the amount of image noise.
Exposure zones - This settings determines which part of the image is used to calculate the exposure. For most situations, the Auto
setting can be used. For particular requirement, select a predefined area.
IR cut filter - The IR cut filter prevents infrared (IR) light from reaching the image sensor. In poor lighting conditions, for example at
night, or when using an external IR lamp, set the IR cut filter to Off. This increases light sensitivity and allows the product to “see”
infrared light. The image is shown in black and white when the IR cut filter is off. Set the IR cut filter to Auto to automatically
switch between On and Off according to the lighting conditions.
Day/Night shift priority - Use the Day/Night shift priority bar to determine when the camera shifts into either day mode or night
mode. By default, the camera will automatically change from day to night mode at a pre-defined level which corresponds to light
conditions. By dragging the bar handle towards the sun, the camera will change to day mode earlier and change to night mode late.
Image Settings
Important
The autofocus behavior is affected by factors such as light conditions, contrasts in the scene, and objects moving in and out. In
these conditions or scenes, a manual focus could be preferable to enhance performance and allow the camera to focus faster.
Autofocus enabled - Autofocus enables the camera to focus although the distance to different objects of interest is constantly
changing. Whenever the camera’s pan/tilt/zoom position is changed, the autofocus performs a search to find the ideal focus point.
Automatic focusing is enabled by default. If the focus position is changed manually using the focus bar, autofocus will be disabled
even if enabled in Image Settings. In this case, use the PTZ control panel to enable autofocus, see page 12. If required, the focus
control can be disabled under PTZ > Advanced > Controls.
Auto defog - The product will detect fog and automatically filter it out to get a clear image. Select the level of fog removal from the
drop-down list. High implies that maximum fog removal is applied and off implies no fog removal. Auto defog can be activated
incorrectly in scenes with low contrast, high light level variations or when auto focus is slightly off. This can affect the image quality
by for example, increasing image contrast. Also, too much brightness can negatively impact the image quality when defog is active.
Noise reduction - Set to On to enable noise reduction. Noise reduction may increase the amount of motion blur.
Image freeze on PTZ - Select All movements to freeze the image while the camera is moving during a pan, tilt or zoom operation.
Once the camera reaches its new position, the view from that position is shown. Presets freezes the image only when the camera
moves between preset positions.
Overlay
Overlays are used to provide extra information, such as forensic video analysis or during product installation and configuration.
Overlays are superimposed over the video stream.
An overlay text can display the current date and time, or a text string. When using a text string, modifiers can be used to display
information such as the current bit rate or the current frame rate. For information about available modifiers, see File Naming &

2. Under Overlay settings, select Include text and enter #x.
3. Configure the optional size, color and positon of the text overlay.
4. Click Save.
Overlay Image
An overlay image is a static image superimposed over the video stream. The image, for example a company logo, is used to provide
extra information or to mask a part of the image.
Since it is static, the position and size of an overlay image will remain the same regardless of resolution and Pan/Tilt/Zoom movements.
Use a privacy mask to set up a dynamic mask which will always mask the specified part of monitored area.
For more information about privacy masks, see Privacy Mask on page 23.
To use an overlay image, the image must first be uploaded to the Axis product. The uploaded image should be a Windows 24-bit BMP
image with maximum 250 colors. The image width and height, in pixels, must be exactly divisible by 4 and cannot be larger than the
maximum image resolution. If combining text and image overlays, take into consideration that the text overlay occupies 16 or 32
pixels in height (depending on the resolution) and has the same width as the video image.

6. Specify the Duration. The text can be displayed while the rule is active or for a fixed number of seconds.
Example
To display the text “Motion detected” when motion is detected, enter #D in the Include text field and enter “Motion detected” in
the Text field when setting up the action rule.
Privacy Mask
A privacy mask is an area of solid color that prohibits users from viewing parts of the monitored area. Privacy masks cannot be
bypassed via the VAPIX® Application Programming Interface (API).
The Privacy Mask List, Video > Privacy Mask, shows all the masks that are currently configured in the Axis product and indicates
if they are enabled.
Since the Pan/Tilt/Zoom coordinates define its size and position, a privacy mask is dynamic in relation to the monitored area. This
means that regardless of the angle and zoom of the lens, the same place or object will be hidden. To define at what magnification the
mask should be displayed, zoom to the desired level and click Set level.
You can add a new mask, re-size the mask with the mouse, choose a color for the mask, and give the mask a name.
For more information, see the online help

26
AXIS Q6045-E Mk II PTZ Dome Network Camera
PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom)
The product can be mounted in three different horizontal directions. This may cause the view from Pan 0° to be changed from the
original view. Click Set new Pan 0° to set the pan coordinate system to zero in the current direction. Set new Pan 0° can be useful
for instance when re-installing the product after maintenance.
Autotracking
The Axis product can detect movement in the field of view, for example a moving vehicle or person. If autotracking is enabled, the
Axis product will automatically pan and tilt to follow the moving object. In case there is much simultaneous movement, the area with
the most movement will be followed. Autotracking continues until the moving object stops or disappears from the monitored area.
Movement in areas blocked by privacy masks and in exclude areas does not trigger autotracking.
It is strongly recommended to enable the PTZ Control Queue if autotracking and guard tour are enabled simultaneously. In the PTZ
Control Queue, guard tour has lower priority than autotracking, so autotracking will not be abandoned to start a guard tour.
Configuration
Start/Stop Autotracking - Click Start to enable autotracking. To disable autotracking, click Stop.
Settings - The Movement trigger sensitivity level can be set to Low, Medium or High. Medium is usually a good choice, depending on
the size of the moving objects and the image contrast, a low or high sensitivity might be more suitable.
Exclude Areas
Exclude areas are areas where movement is to be ignored.
Note
Movement in an area blocked by a privacy mask is always ignored.
1. Click Add area to create an exclude area
2. Resize and move the area (the blue rectangle) to the desired position.
3. Enter a descriptive name and click Save.
To remove an area, click the name of the area and click Remove. To enable or disable an area, click the name of the area and
click Enable/Disable.
Max Limits
The pan and tilt limits restrict the area where autotracking is allowed. The area beyond the set limits will be ignored. This may prove
useful, for example, to avoid tracking birds in the sky. Between the pan start and end limits, autotracking is allowed going clockwise.
The illustrations show the difference between setting a range from 135° to 45° (1) and a range from 45° to 135° (2).
1. Select Enable tilt limit and Enable pan limit respectively to enable the tilt and pan limits.
2. Enter the Tilt angle and Pan limit values, or click the links and move the blue horizontal and vertical bars in the preview
window until satisfied.
3. Click Save.

.
OSDI Zones
On-Screen Direction Indicator (OSDI) zones can be included in the overlay text (see Overlay on page 21) to aid the user to navigate
the Axis product. Each OSDI zone is set up with coordinates and a descriptive name.
OSDI zones are set up under PTZ > OSDI Zones. The Axis product uses the coordinates of the center of the view to set the lower
left and upper right zone areas. First navigate to where you would like the lowermost left point of the OSDI zone to be located.
Click Get to set the coordinates. Proceed to where the upper right point of zone should be located and click Get. Give the zone a
descriptive name and click OK.
To include the name of the OSDI zone in the overlay text, go to Video < Video Stream < Overlay Settings. Check the Include
text box and enter the modifier #L in the field. For more information about modifiers, see File Naming & Date/Time Formats in
the online help
.
Advanced
Limits
Define the pan, tilt, zoom and focus limits for the Axis product. Movements to the left and right, up and down, can be restricted to
narrow the area under surveillance.
29
AXIS Q6045-E Mk II PTZ Dome Network Camera
PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom)
When Enable E-flip is selected, as it tilts down and continues to pan backwards, the Axis product will automatically correct the view
and flip it 180 degrees. The left limit must be set to –180 degrees and the right limit to 180 degrees for e-flip to work.
Near focus limit is used to prevent the camera from autofocusing on objects close to the camera. This way, the camera can ignore
objects such as overhead wires, streetlights, or other cameras placed close to the camera.
To make the camera focus on the areas of interest, set the near focus limit to a value that is greater than the distance at which the
uninteresting objects tend to appear. See illustration below where x is the near focus limit value.
x
Move speed sets the speed of the camera’s pan and tilt movements. The default setting is maximum speed.
When using a joystick (or emulating one with the mouse) the Enable proportional speed setting can be used to reduce the maximum
pan/tilt movement speed, i.e. the speed the camera view moves at when the joystick is pushed all the way out in any direction. This is
useful then the view is zoomed in on an object.
See the online help
for more information.
Controls
Advanced PTZ settings can be configured under PTZ > Advanced > Controls.
The Panel Shortcut Command Buttons list shows the user-defined buttons that can be accessed from the Live View page’s Ctrl

Control Queue
Note
• The administrator can enable and disable PTZ controls for selected users.
• To identify different users in the viewer group, cookies must be enabled on the client.
• The Control queue polltime is measured in seconds. For more information see the online help
.
The administrator can set up a queue for PTZ controllers from PTZ > Control Queue. Once set up, the PTZ Control Queue buttons
appear in the Live View page offering one viewer exclusive control for a limited period of time. Other users will be placed in queue.
A user who belongs to a group (see Users on page 48) with a higher PTZ priority can go before other users in the queue and take
control of the product. The order of priority is as follows:
1. Administrator — An administrator takes over PTZ control regardless of who is first in queue. The administrator will be
removed from the queue 60 seconds after the last PTZ control command.
2. Event — The Axis product can be configured to go to a preset position when triggered by an alarm (see Events on page 39).
The event will immediately be placed first in the queue except when an administrator is in control.
3. Operator — Same as administrator but with lower priority
4. Guard Tour — A guard tour (see page 28) has PTZ control for an indefinite period of time. It may be overridden by an
operator, event or administrator. The guard tour will resume when higher priority groups leave the queue.
5. Viewer — Multiple viewers must wait for their turn. The viewer has 60 seconds PTZ control before control is passed
on to the next viewer in queue.

Detectors
Detectors
Shock Detection
Enable Shock Detection from the Detectors menu. Shock detection is used, for example, to generate an alarm if the product is hit
by an object or if the product is tampered with.
Use the Shock sensitivity slider to adjust the sensitivity level at which the product should send an alarm. Low sensitivity value
implies that the product will generate an alarm only if the hit is powerful. A high sensitivity value implies that the product will
generate an alarm even with mild tampering.
Motion Detection
Motion detection is used to generate an alarm whenever movement starts or stops in the camera view.
Motion detection is configured by defining up to 10 Include and Exclude windows:
•
Include windows — define areas where motion should be detected
•
Exclude windows — define areas within an Include window that should be ignored (areas outside Include windows
are automatically ignored).
For instructions, see Set Up Motion Detection Windows on page 32.
To control the number of motion detection alarms, the parameters Object Size, History and Sensitivity can be adjusted. See
Motion Detection Parameters on page 32.
Once motion detection windows are configured, the Axis product can be configured to perform actions when motion is detected.
Possible actions include uploading images and start recording. For more information, see Set Up Action Rules on page 39.
Note
• Using the motion detection feature may decrease the product’s overall performance.
• The position of the Motion Detection Window is relative to the orientation of the Camera. Changing the orientation of the
camera will also change the position of the Motion Detection Window.
Set Up Motion Detection Windows
To set up a motion detection Include Window, follow these instructions:
1. Go to Detectors > Motion Detection.
2. Select the Configure Included Windows option and click New. Select the new window in the list of windows and
enter a descriptive name.
3. Adjust the size (drag the bottom right-hand corner) and the position (click on the text at the top and drag to the desired
position) of the window.
4. Adjust the Object Size, History and Sensitivity profile sliders (see Motion Detection Parameters for details). Any detected
motion within an active window is indicated by red peaks in the Activity window.
5. Click Save.

6. Under Actions, select Record Video from the Type drop-down list.
7. Select a Stream profile and configure the Duration settings as described below.
8. Select Network Share from the Storage drop-down list.
To use more than one trigger for the action rule, select Additional conditions and click Add to add additional triggers. When using
additional conditions, all conditions must be met to trigger the action.
To prevent an action from being triggered repeatedly, a Wait at least time can be set. Enter the time in hours, minutes and seconds,
during which the trigger should be ignored before the action rule can be activated again.
The recording Duration of some actions can be set to include time immediately before and after the event. Select Pre-trigger time
and/or Post-trigger time and enter the number of seconds. When While the rule is active is enabled and the action is triggered
again during the post-trigger time, the recording time will be extended with another post-trigger time period.

IEEE 802.1X
IEEE 802.1X is a standard for port-based Network Admission Control providing secure authentication of wired and wireless network
devices. IEEE 802.1X is based on EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol).
To access a network protected by IEEE 802.1X, devices must be authenticated. The authentication is performed by an authentication
server, typically a RADIUS server, examples of which are FreeRADIUS and Microsoft Internet Authentication Service.
In Axis implementation, the Axis product and the authentication server identify themselves with digital certificates using EAP-TLS
(Extensible Authentication Protocol - Transport Layer Security). The certificates are provided by a Certification Authority (CA).
You need:
•
a CA certificate to authenticate the authentication server.
•
a CA-signed client certificate to authenticate the Axis product.
To create and install certificates, go to System Options > Security > Certificates. See Certificates on page 49. Many CA certificates
are preinstalled.
To allow the product to access a network protected by IEEE 802.1X:
1. Go to System Options > Security > IEEE 802.1X.

3. Under Settings, select the EAPOL version and provide the EAP identity associated with the client certificate.
4. Check the box to enable IEEE 802.1X and click Save.
Note
For authentication to work properly, the date and time settings in the Axis product should be synchronized with an NTP
server. See Date & Time on page 50.
Certificates
Certificates are used to authenticate devices on a network. Typical applications include encrypted web browsing (HTTPS), network
protection via IEEE 802.1X and secure upload of images and notification messages for example via email. Two types of certificates
can be used with the Axis product:
Server/Client certificates - To authenticate the Axis product.
CA certificates - To authenticate peer certificates, for example the certificate of an authentication server in case the Axis product is
connected to an IEEE 802.1X protected network.

NAT traversal (port mapping) for IPv4
A network router allows devices on a private network (LAN) to share a single connection to the Internet. This is done by forwarding
network traffic from the private network to the “outside”, that is, the Internet. Security on the private network (LAN) is increased
since most routers are pre-configured to stop attempts to access the private network (LAN) from the public network (Internet).
Use NAT traversal when the Axis product is located on an intranet (LAN) and you wish to make it available from the other (WAN) side
of a NAT router. With NAT traversal properly configured, all HTTP traffic to an external HTTP port in the NAT router is forwarded to
the product.
NAT traversal is configured under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced.

• For NAT traversal to work, this must be supported by the router. The router must also support UPnPTM.
• In this context, router refers to any network routing device such as a NAT router, Network router, Internet Gateway,
Broadband router, Broadband sharing device, or a software such as a firewall.
Enable/Disable - When enabled, the Axis product attempts to configure port mapping in a NAT router on your network, using UPnPTM.
Note that UPnPTM must be enabled in the product (see System Options > Network > UPnP).
Use manually selected NAT router - Select this option to manually select a NAT router and enter the IP address for the router in
the field. If no router is specified, the product automatically searches for NAT routers on your network. If more than one router is
found, the default router is selected.
Alternative HTTP port - Select this option to manually define an external HTTP port. Enter a port in the range 1024–65535. If the
port field is empty or contains the default setting, which is 0, a port number is automatically selected when enabling NAT traversal.
Note
• An alternative HTTP port can be used or be active even if NAT traversal is disabled. This is useful if your NAT router does not
support UPnP and you need to manually configure port forwarding in the NAT router.
• If you attempt to manually enter a port that is already in use, another available port is automatically selected.
• When the port is selected automatically it is displayed in this field. To change this, enter a new port number and click Save.
FTP
The FTP server running in the Axis product enables upload of new firmware, user applications, etc. The FTP server can be disabled
under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced.
Note
This FTP server has nothing to do with the product’s ability to transfer images via FTP to other locations and servers.
RTSP
The RTSP server running in the Axis product allows a connecting client to start an H.264 stream. The RTSP port number can be
changed under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced. The default port is 554.
Note
H.264 video streams will not be available if the RTSP server is disabled.
SOCKS
SOCKS is a networking proxy protocol. The Axis product can be configured to use a SOCKS server to reach networks on the other
side of a firewall or proxy server. This functionality is useful if the Axis product is located on a local network behind a firewall, and
notifications, uploads, alarms, etc need to be sent to a destination outside the local network (for example the Internet).
SOCKS is configured under System Options > Network > SOCKS. For more information, see the online help
.
QoS (Quality of Service)
QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees a certain level of a specified resource to selected traffic on a network. A QoS-aware network
prioritizes network traffic and provides a greater network reliability by controlling the amount of bandwidth an application may use.
The QoS settings are configured under System Options > Network > QoS. Using DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint) values, the
Axis product can mark different types of traffic.
SNMP
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows remote management of network devices. An SNMP community is the
group of devices and management station running SNMP. Community names are used to identify groups.

Symptoms, Possible Causes and Remedial Actions
Problems setting the IP address
When using ARP/Ping
Try the installation again. The IP address must be set within two minutes after power has been
applied to the product. Ensure the Ping length is set to 408. For instructions, see Assign IP Address
Using ARP/Ping on page 51.
The product is located on a
different subnet
If the IP address intended for the product and the IP address of the computer used to access the
product are located on different subnets, you will not be able to set the IP address. Contact your
network administrator to obtain an IP address.
The IP address is being used
by another device
Disconnect the Axis product from the network. Run the Ping command (in a Command/DOS
window, type ping and the IP address of the product):
• If you receive: Reply from <IP address>: bytes=32; time=10...
this means that the IP address may already be in use by another device on the network.
Obtain a new IP address from the network administrator and reinstall the product.
• If you receive: Request timed out, this means that the IP address is available
for use with the Axis product. Check all cabling and reinstall the product.
Possible IP address conflict
with another device on the
same subnet.
The static IP address in the Axis product is used before the DHCP server sets a dynamic address.
This means that if the same default static IP address is also used by another device, there may
be problems accessing the product.
The product cannot be accessed from a browser
Cannot log in
When HTTPS is enabled, ensure that the correct protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) is used when attempting
to log in. You may need to manually type http or https in the browser’s address field.
If the password for the user root is lost, the product must be reset to the factory default settings.
See Reset to Factory Default Settings on page 59.
The IP address has been
changed by DHCP
IP addresses obtained from a DHCP server are dynamic and may change. If the IP address has
been changed, use AXIS IP Utility or AXIS Camera Management to locate the product on the
network. Identify the product using its model or serial number, or by the DNS name (if the name
has been configured).
If required, a static IP address can be assigned manually. For instructions, see the document Assign
an IP Address and Access the Video Stream on Axis Support web at www.axis.com/techsup.

Performance Considerations
When setting up your system, it is important to consider how various settings and situations will affect performance. Some factors
affect the amount of bandwidth (the bit rate) required, others can affect the frame rate, and some affect both. If the load on the
CPU reaches its maximum, this will also affect the frame rate.
The following factors are among the most important to consider:
•
High image resolution and/or lower compression levels result in images containing more data. Bandwidth affected.
•
Access by large numbers of Motion JPEG and/or unicast H.264 clients. Bandwidth affected.
•
Simultaneous viewing of different streams (resolution, compression) by different clients. Effect on frame rate and
bandwidth.
•
Accessing Motion JPEG and H.264 video streams simultaneously. Frame rate and bandwidth affected.
•
Heavy usage of event settings affect the product’s CPU load. Frame rate affected.
•
Using HTTPS may reduce frame rate, in particular if streaming Motion JPEG.
•
Heavy network utilization due to poor infrastructure. Bandwidth affected.
•
Viewing on poorly performing client computers lowers perceived performance. Frame rate affected.
•
Running multiple AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP) applications simultaneously may affect the frame rate and
the general performance.
