Overview
The VPort 25 is a vandal-proof, IP66-rated, fixed dome IP camera for use in harsh, outdoor
environments. With a maximum resolution of 520 TVL and day-and-night CCD camera lens, the
VPort 25 is especially well-suited for high performance video surveillance applications. To meet
the outdoor environment requirements, the VPort 25 is IP66-rated to protect it against dust and
rain. In addition, the vandal-proof form factor design prevents damage from unexpected external
forces, and the case-open sensor sends an alarm message when the VPort 25’s outer case is
opened.
The VPort 25’s no-heater/fan-less embedded system provides greater reliability for outdoor use.
In addition, the camera comes with redundant power inputs:
(1) direct power connection (12/24 VDC and 24 VAC) and (2) PoE (IEEE 802.3af) power input.
The VPort 25 uses the ASIC compression chip, which provides video performance up to full D1
(720 x 480) @ 30 FPS. To meet a wider range of customer requirements, the VPort 25 supports
dual-codecs, including the MJPEG and MPEG4 algorithms.

Software Installation
Step 1: Configure the VPort 25’s IP address
When the VPort 25 is first powered on, the POST (Power On Self Test) will run for a few
moments. The System LED will turn green when the POST is complete. The 10 Mbps or 100
Mbps LED will then flash as the IP address is assigned. The network environment determines
how the IP address is assigned.
Network Environment with DHCP Server
For this network environment, the unit’s IP address will be assigned by the network’s DHCP
server. Refer to the DHCP server’s IP address table to determine the unit’s assigned IP address.
You may also use the Moxa VPort and Ether Device Configurator Utility (edscfgui.exe), as
described below:

to initiate a search.
When the search has concluded, the Model Name, MAC address, IP address, serial port, and
HTTP port of the VPort will be listed in the utility’s window.
- 19 -
NOTE The Serial number is the production serial number of this VPort,
and the HTTP Port number is the http port used by this VPort.
3.
Users can double click the selected VPort, or use the IE web browser to access the VPort’s
web-based manager (web server).
Non DHCP Server Network Environment
If your VPort 25 is connected to a network that does not have a DHCP server, then you will need
to configure the IP address manually. The default IP address of the VPort 25 is 192.168.127.100
and the default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. Note that you may need to change your
computer’s IP address and subnet mask so that the computer is on the same subnet as the VPort.
To change the IP address of the VPort manually, access the VPort’s web server, and then
navigate to the System Configuration Æ Network Æ General page to configure the IP address
and other network settings. Check the Use fixed IP address to ensure that the IP address you
assign is not deleted each time the VPort is restarted.
Step 2: Accessing the VPort 25’s web-based manager
Type the IP address in the web browser’s address input box and then press enter.
Step 3: Install the ActiveX Control Plug-in
A security warning message will appear the first time you access the VPort’s web-based
manager. The message is related to installing the VPort AcitveX Control component on your PC
or notebook. Click Yes to install this plug-in to enable the IE web browser for viewing video
images.

Wiring Requirements
ATTENTION
Safety First!
Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or
wiring your Moxa VPort 25.
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:
y 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.
y 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.
y Keep input wiring and output wiring separated.
y It is strongly advised that you label wiring to all devices in the system when necessary.
