Introduction
Congratulations on purchasing your Cisco Small Business WVC210 Wireless-G
PTZ Internet Camera. Cisco is the leader in Wi-Fi certified Internet cameras, and
the Cisco WVC210 Network Camera is part of the largest portfolio of Wi-Fi
certified cameras in the marketplace.
The Cisco WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera sends live video
through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world. The camera
supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG), which can be used simultaneously.
MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good-quality compression
and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality,
making it ideal for large-volume storage to a network attached storage (NAS)
device.
The Cisco WVC210's audio capabilities include two-way audio, an embedded
microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression. With
extensive support for features such as IP multicast, Real Time Streaming Protocol
(RTSP), Real Time Protocol (RTP), and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP),
it enables video to be viewed from multiple endpoints and client applications,
such as 3G phones and QuickTime clients on PCs or Wi-Fi phones. Network
protocols such as 802.1p priority, 802.1Q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS (DDNS) are
also supported.
The pan/tilt and digital zoom functions allow you to remotely control the camera
movement and focus, giving you maximum remote flexibility. Up to 10
simultaneous unicast users can access the camera at any time. Video monitoring
software is included for monitoring multiple cameras and recording to your hard
drive, with advanced search by time and date. Recording can be set up to start by
motion trigger or by manual or scheduled recording. Playback is available on
Windows Media Player, with no need for a proprietary player.
You can also enable security mode, which tells the camera to send a message
with a short attached video to up to three e-mail addresses whenever it detects
motion in its field of view. You can then log in through a web browser to view the
live video stream if the situation warrants. Wireless security options include Wired
Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), WPA2, and WPA
Enterprise.

Planning Your Wireless Network
Careful planning is required for a wireless network, to ensure that your users can
access the network resources that they need and to ensure that intruders are kept
out.
This chapter includes the following sections:
•
Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure Modes, page 4
•
Wireless Network Layout, page 5
•
Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks, page 6
Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure Modes
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is exactly like a regular local area network
(LAN), except that each computer in the WLAN uses a wireless device to connect
to the network. Computers and other devices, such as peripherals, in a WLAN
share the same frequency channel and SSID, which is an identification name for
wireless devices.
Unlike wired networks, wireless networks have two different modes in which they
may be set up: infrastructure and ad-hoc.
•
Infrastructure mode—The WLAN and wired LAN communicate through an
access point. Choose this mode if the wireless network needs to share data
or peripherals, such as printers, with a wired network.
The basis of infrastructure mode centers around an access point, which
serves as the main point of communications in a wireless network. (A
wireless router can also be used because a wireless router incorporates
the capabilities of an access point.) Access points transmit data to PCs
equipped with wireless network cards, which can roam within a certain
radial range of the access point. Multiple access points can be arranged to
work in succession to extend the roaming range, and can be set up to
communicate with your Ethernet (wired) hardware as well.

Planning Your Wireless Network
Wireless Network Layout
•

Ad-hoc mode—Wireless computers communicate directly with one
another. Choose this mode if your wireless network does not require
access to data or peripherals on a wired network.
If the wireless network is relatively small and needs to share resources only
with the other computers on the wireless network, then ad-hoc mode can
be used. Ad-hoc mode allows computers equipped with wireless
transmitters and receivers to communicate directly with each other,
eliminating the need for an access point. The drawback of this mode is that
wireless-equipped computers are not able to communicate with computers
on a wired network. And, of course, communication between the wirelessequipped computers is limited by the distance and interference directly
between them.
Wireless Network Layout
The Cisco WVC210 Internet camera is compatible with all 802.11g and 802.11n
routers, such as model number WRVS4400N, as well as all 802.11g access points,
including model number WAP4410N. The camera can also communicate with
network adapters, such as the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter (model number
WPC4400N) for your laptop computers, Wireless-G PCI Adapter (model numbers
WMP200) for your desktop PCs, and Wireless-G USB Adapter (model number
WUSB200) for your computers that connect to the wireless network through USB
modems.
With these, and many other Cisco products, your networking options are limitless.
Go to the Cisco website at www.cisco.com for more information about Cisco
products.
NOTE Your wireless range is variable and depends on your environment.

Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks

Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
Cisco wants to make wireless networking as safe and easy for you as possible.
The current generation of Cisco products provide several network security
features, but they require specific action on your part for implementation. So, keep
the following suggestions in mind whenever you are setting up or using your
wireless network. Also see Setting Security Precautions on the Cisco
WVC210, page 88.
Wireless networks are easy to find. Hackers know that in order to join a wireless
network, wireless networking products first listen for “beacon messages.” These
messages can be easily decrypted and contain much of the network’s information,
such as the network’s SSID (Service Set Identifier). Here are the steps you can
take to prevent intruders:
Change the administrator’s password regularly—With every wireless networking
device you use, keep in mind that network settings (SSID, WEP keys, etc.) are
stored in its firmware. Your network administrator is the only person who can
change network settings. If a hacker learns the administrator’s password, he, too,
can change those settings. So, make it harder for a hacker to get that information.
Change the administrator’s password regularly.
SSID—There are several things to keep in mind about the SSID:
•
Do not broadcast it
•
Make it unique
•
Change it often
Most wireless networking devices will give you the option of broadcasting the
SSID, meaning that the SSID can be seen by anyone who is scanning for an
available wireless network. While this option may be more convenient for your
users, it is also convenient for hackers. So, don’t broadcast the SSID.
Wireless networking products come with a default SSID set from the factory. (The
Cisco default SSID is “ciscosb”.) Hackers know these defaults and can use them to
find your network, even if you are not broadcasting the SSID. Change your SSID to
something unique and that does not identify your company or the networking
products you use.
Change your SSID regularly so that any hackers who have gained access to your
wireless network will have difficulty finding it again.

Planning Your Wireless Network
Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
2
MAC Addresses—Enable MAC Address filtering. MAC addresses are unique
identification numbers that are assigned to a device at the factory. MAC Address
filtering allows you to provide access only to devices that you specify. This feature
makes it harder for a hacker to access your network with a random MAC Address.
WEP Encryption—Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is an older encryption method
that is not considered to be secure and can easily be broken. Select this option
only if you need to allow access to devices that do not support WPA or WPA2.
If you must use WEP, take the following precautions to make a hacker's job more
difficult:
•
Use the highest level of encryption possible
•
Use “Shared Key” authentication
•
Change your WEP key regularly
WPA/WPA2 Personal—WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access, which is a
security standard stronger than WEP encryption. A network encrypted with WPA/
WPA2 is more secure than a network encrypted with WEP, because WPA/WPA2
uses dynamic key encryption. To protect the information as it passes over the
airwaves, you should enable the highest level.
WPA/WPA Enterprise—Enterprise refers to using RADIUS server for
authentication, while RADIUS stands for Remote Authentication Dial-In User
Service. This type of authentication requires some advanced expertise because it
involves setting up a RADIUS server for authentication and, in some cases,
creation of certificates for both the RADIUS server and the camera.
If you are using WPA/WPA2 Enterprise security, you will need to upload security
certificates to the camera. Certificates must be in the following format:
•
Root certificate: DER encoded binary x.509 (CER/PEM)
•
User certificate: Personal Information Exchange (PKCS#12(.PFX))
Implementing encryption may have a negative impact on your network’s
performance, but if you are transmitting sensitive data over your network,
encryption should be used.
These security recommendations should help keep your mind at ease while you
are enjoying the most flexible and convenient technology Cisco has to offer.

!
CAUTION Always remember that each device in your wireless network MUST use the same
encryption method and encryption key or your wireless network will not function
properly.
Additional Security Tips
The following tips can help prevent hackers from gaining access into your
wireless network.
•
Keep wireless routers, access points, or gateways away from exterior walls
and windows.
•
Turn wireless routers, access points, or gateways off when they are not
being used (at night, during vacations).
•
Use strong passphrases that are at least eight characters in length.
Combine letters and numbers to avoid using standard words that can be
found in the dictionary.

static IP address by pressing the Reset button on the
camera for less than 3 seconds. A default IP address of
192.168.1.99 will be assigned to the camera. This
information also can set in the Setup Wizard and in the
web-based configuration utility for the camera.
Tips when using the default IP address:
•
If the camera is connected directly to your computer,
then your computer needs to be on the same subnet as
the default IP address in order to access the
configuration utility.
•
If you are using a router, you may be on a different
subnet such as 192.168.2.1.

Camera Installation Guidelines
Consider the following guidelines before installing and mounting your cameras.
While the motion detection window and the degree of sensitivity can be optimized
later, it is best to optimize your camera location first.
•
Choose a location that provides adequate coverage of the area to be
monitored.
•
If using the microphone in the camera, note that the cameras are designed
to pick up audio from a distance (unlike a web camera that you would place
near you.)
•
If using motion detection, consider potential sources of false positives, such
as trees and shrubs, drastic light changes, wandering animals, and traffic.
•
If using an external microphone or speaker, place the microphone far
enough away from the speaker to avoid feedback. The volume of the
speaker and the background noise of the environment will determine the
exact distance, possibly up to one yard (one meter) away.

Configuring Port Forwarding
Port forwarding allows Internet access to multiple cameras that are located inside
a private network. For example, you have two cameras behind a NAT router – one
is on alternate port 1024 and the second one is on port 1028. To access each
camera individually, setup two port forwarding rules to access the web interface
of the camera. You can then go to http://x.x.x.x:####/ where x.x.x.x is the WAN IP of
the router and #### is the defined alternate port on the camera.
To set up port forwarding, follow these steps:
STEP 1 From the camera’s web-based utility, click Setup > Advance Setup.
STEP 2 Enter a port number in the HTTP Port field. For example, enter 1028. Valid port
settings are 1024-65535.
When you open the URL to the camera, you now must specify the port number. For
example: http://192.168.1.99:1028
STEP 3 Click Save and close the window.
STEP 4 Enter the IP address of your router in your web browser’s Address field and press
Enter. In this example, the default IP address of the router is used (192.168.1.1.).

WVC210 Internet camera.
Q.
When I try to connect to the Wireless Network Camera, I get prompted
for a user name and password.
You should be prompted for a user name and password when you first
connect to the camera. Enter the Administrator ID and Password set on the
User window. The Username/Password prompt indicates that the
Administrator has restricted access to specified users. Ask the
Administrator for your Username and Password. If this has not been set, it
should still be the default of admin/admin.
Q.
I can't connect to the Wireless Network Camera using a Wireless
connection.
You must perform the initial configuration of the Cisco WVC210 camera
from a personal computer connected to the camera using a wired
connection to the Ethernet port. The initial configuration cannot be
performed over a wireless connection.
Once the initial configuration is complete, disconnect the LAN cable and
unplug the camera. If a LAN cable is connected to the LAN port, the
Wireless interface is disabled. In order to switch from wired to wireless (or
wireless to wired) the camera needs to be rebooted (unplugged and then
plugged in again.)

Questions and Answers
Also check that your PC and the Wireless Network Camera have
compatible Wireless settings.
Q.
-
The mode (Infrastructure or Ad-hoc) must be correct.
-
The SSID must match.
-
The wireless security settings must match.
-
In Ad-hoc mode, the channel should match, although this is often not
required.
My video quality suddenly deteriorated.
This can happen when an additional viewer connects to the Wireless
Network Camera, overloading the camera or the available bandwidth. The
image size and quality can be adjusted to cater for the required number of
viewers and the available bandwidth.
Q.
The motion detection feature doesn't send me any e-mails.
The Cisco WVC210 camera does not support Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
protocols used by many e-mail providers, such as Gmail. Therefore you will
not be able to use Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) Mail servers like
Gmail that require SSL encryption. Contact your e-mail provider if you are
not sure whether your SMTP server uses SSL encryption.
You must use a static IP address (you can copy the DHCP Address), but the
DNS server must be that of the ISP and not of the router. You can find this
address in the router's status log for WAN IP Address.
Q.
When using the motion detection feature, I receive e-mails that don't
show any moving objects.
The motion detection feature doesn't actually detect motion. It compares
frames to see if they are different. Major differences between frames are
assumed to be caused by moving objects.
But the motion detector can also be triggered by sudden changes in the
level of available light or movement of the camera itself. For example,
twilight, like dusk and dawn, can cause false positive detections. Motion
detection should not be used if the camera is outdoors because of the
possibility of false positives. The motion detection feature works best in
locations where there is good steady illumination, and the camera is
mounted securely.

Q.
The video image is blurry.
Try cleaning the dome, or adjusting the MPEG-4 or MJPEG image quality
setting found in Audio/Video > Video Settings, page 59.
Q.
How do I set up UPnP so my cameras broadcast their availability to my
network?
UPnP networking technology provides automatic IP configuration and
dynamic discovery of devices added to a network. Services and
capabilities offered by networked devices, such as printing and file sharing,
are available among each other without a lot of network configuration.
UPnP Is automatically enabled on the cameras. In a Windows environment,
it may or may not be enabled. On Windows XP, you must log on to the
computer as a system administrator to install the UPnP components. If using
Windows Vista, UPnP Is enabled by default. However, if it is not enabled,
turn off UAC (User Access Control) before following this procedure.
Follow these steps to enable UPnP user interface on your computer:
STEP 1
Go to Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
STEP 2
In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click Add/Remove Windows
Components.
NOTE If the default ports are already used by another device connecting to the same
router, the camera will select another port.
STEP 3
In the Windows Components Wizard dialog box, make sure Networking Services
is checked.
STEP 4
Highlight Networking Services, and then click Details.
STEP 5
In the Networking Services dialog box, select Universal Plug and Play and then
click OK.
STEP 6
Click Next in the following window.
STEP 7
Click Finish. UPnP is enabled.

Windows Help
TIP
Another way to enable UPnP on Windows XP is to go to My Network Places and
on the left tab click on Show icons for networked UPnP devices.
Windows Help
Almost all wireless products require Microsoft Windows. Windows is the most
used operating system in the world and comes with many features that help make
networking easier. These features can be accessed through Windows Help and
are described in this appendix.
TCP/IP
Before a computer can communicate with an access point or router, TCP/IP must
be enabled. TCP/IP is a set of instructions, or protocol, all PCs follow to
communicate over a network. Your PCs will not be able to use networking without
having TCP/IP enabled. Windows Help provides complete instructions on enabling
TCP/IP.
Shared Resources
If you wish to share printers, folders, or files over your network, Windows Help
provides complete instructions on using shared resources.
Network Neighborhood/My Network Places
Other PCs on your network appear under Network Neighborhood or My Network
Places (depending upon the version of Windows you’re running). Windows Help
provides complete instructions on adding PCs to your network.
