4.11
Accessing the network camera for the first time
The network camera is accessed for the first time using the IP Installer.
After the installation wizard is started, it searches for all connected ABUS network cameras and video servers
in your network.
You can find the program on the included CD-ROM. Install the program on your PC and then run it.
If a DHCP server is available in your network, the IP address is assigned automatically for both the PC/laptop
and the network camera.
If no DHCP server is available, the network camera determines a free IP address from the 192.168.1.2 –
192.168.1.254 range independently. Your PC system must be located in the same IP segment in order to
establish communication with the network camera.
The standard setting for the network camera is “DHCP”. If no DHCP server is in operation in
your network, then we recommend setting the IP address manually to a fixed value following
initial access to the network camera.
74
4.12
Accessing the network camera using a web browser
When you first access the network camera under Windows, the web browser may ask for the installation of an
ActiveX plug-in for the network camera. This query depends on the Internet security settings of your PC. If the
highest security level is set, the PC will refuse any installation and any attempt at running it. This plug-in is
used for displaying the video in the browser. To continue, click “Install”. If the web browser prevents
continuation of the installation, open the Internet security settings and reduce the security level or consult the
IT administrator or network administrator.
4.13
Installing the ActiveX plug-in
If Mozilla Firefox is used as the browser when accessing the camera, an MJPEG stream is
provided by the camera instead of the ActiveX plug-in.
4.14
Adjusting the security settings
Note: Your PC security settings may prevent a video stream. You can change the security
settings to a lower level under “Tools / Internet Options / Security”. Make sure you enable
ActiveX controls and downloads.
75
4.15
Password prompt
When delivered, an administrator password is already defined for the network camera. However, the
administrator should define a new password immediately for security reasons. After the new administrator
password is stored, the network camera asks for the user name and password every time it is accessed.
The administrator account is set up in the factory as follows: user name “admin” and password “12345”. Each
time the network camera is accessed, the browser displays an authentication window and asks for the user
name and password. If you can no longer access your personal settings in the administrator account, you can
log in again with user name “admin” and password “12345” after resetting the network camera to the factory
settings.
To enter a user name and password, proceed as follows:
Open Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the camera (e.g. “http://192.168.1.14”).
You are then prompted for authentication:
Standard user name:
admin
Standard password:
12345
-> You are now connected with the network camera and can see a video stream.
4.16
Accessing the network camera using an RTSP player
You have the option to access the MPEG-4/H.264 data streams on the network camera with an RTSPcompatible media player. The following free media players support RTSP:
x
x
x
VLC Media Player
Real Player
Quicktime Media Player
The address format for entering the connection data is as follows:
rtsp://<IP address of the network camera>:<RTSP port>/<Type of video data stream>
Example:
rtsp://192.168.1.14:554/video.mjpg (MJPEG stream)
rtsp://192.168.1.14:554/video.mp4 (MPEG-4 stream)
rtsp://192.168.1.14:554/video.h264 (H.264 stream)
76
4.17
Accessing the network camera using a mobile phone
Ensure that you can establish an Internet connection with your mobile phone. Your mobile phone also needs
to be equipped with an RTSP-compatible media player. The following media players for mobile phones
support RTSP:
x
Real Player
x
Core Player
Note that access to the network camera using a mobile phone is limited due to the availability of relatively little
network bandwidth. We therefore recommend making the following video stream settings in order to reduce
the amount of data:
Video compression
Resolution
Frame rate
Video quality (constant bit rate)
MPEG-4
160x120
5 frames/second
48 kbps
If your media player does not support RTSP authentication, then deactivate the authentication mode for RTSP
in the network camera configuration settings.
The address format for entering the connection data is as follows:
rtsp://<IP address of the network camera>:<RTSP port>/<Type of video data stream>
Example:
rtsp://192.168.1.14:554/video.3gp
77
4.18
Accessing the network camera using ABUS VMS
The free ABUS VMS Express recording software can be found on the included CD-ROM. You then have the
possibility of connecting and recording several ABUS Security-Center network cameras on one interface.
Further information can be found in the software manual on the enclosed CD-ROM.

Note: The view size specified here relates to the live image shown in the display mode of the
browser. The resolution set in the camera is always transmitted, even when the view size set
here is smaller.
79
Protocol: Allows you to select a transmission protocol for data transfer between the client and the server. The
following protocol options are available for optimizing the application: UDP, TCP, HTTP.
The UDP protocol gives you a larger number of real-time video streams. However, some data packets can be
lost due to the large data volume in the network. Pictures may be unclear in this case. The UDP protocol is
recommended if you have no special requirements.
With the TCP protocol, fewer data packets are lost and the video display is more accurate. However, the
disadvantage of this protocol is that the video stream is transmitted at a lower frame rate than the UDP
protocol.
Use the HTTP protocol if the network is protected by a firewall and only the HTTP port (80) is available.
The selection of the protocol is recommended to be made in the following order: UDP – TCP – HTTP
This function is only available when using Internet Explorer.
Video buffer: Activate the video buffer if your line has low bandwidth. Image data is saved temporarily in the
network camera for clearer transmission, meaning the image delay is increased.
This function is only available when using Internet Explorer.

The standard port range for RTP unicast transmission is 5000–7999. As an alternative,
the port range 1024–65534 can be used.
The standard port for RTSP transmission is 554. As an alternative, this port can be
assigned a value in the range of 1024–65534. If several IP cameras are located in the
same subnetwork, then each camera should have its own unique RTSP port.
The access names for the various RTSP streams are configured here. Select the
profile to be edited (H.264, MPEG-4, MJPEG, or 3GPP).
Configuration of the access name for the selected profile.
Access to the relevant RTSP stream can be protected with a user name and password.

Authentication to:rtsp://admin:12345@192.168.0.100:554/video.h264
Multicast:
Multicast designates message transmission from one point to a group (also referred to as a multi-point
connection). The advantage of multicast is that messages can be transmitted simultaneously to several
recipients or a closed user group without the bandwidth of the sender increasing according to the number of
recipients. When using multicast, the sender only requires the same bandwidth as a single recipient. The
packets are multiplied on each network distributor (switch, router).
In IP networks, multicast enables efficient sending of data to many recipients at the same time. This is
accomplished with a special multicast address. In IPv4, the address range 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255 is
reserved for this purpose.

UPnP
The UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) function makes it easy to control network devices in an IP network. This
allows the network camera to be seen in the Windows network environment (e.g. as a network device).
UPnP:
Enable UPnP Port forwarding:
HTTP port:
SSL port:
RTSP port:
Enable or disable the UPnP function.
This enables Universal Plug and Play port forwarding for network
services. If your router supports UPnP, then port forwarding for video
streams is activated automatically on the router for the network camera
using this option.
The standard port for HTTP transmission is 80. As an alternative, this
port can be assigned a value in the range of 1024–65535. If several IP
cameras are located in the same subnetwork, then each camera
should have its own unique HTTP port.
The standard port for SSL transmission is 443. As an alternative, this
port can be assigned a value in the range of 1024–65535. If several IP
cameras are located in the same subnetwork, then each camera
should have its own unique SSL port.
The standard port for RTSP transmission is 554. As an alternative, this
port can be assigned a value in the range of 1024–65535. If several IP
cameras are located in the same subnetwork, then each camera
