2.2. Network Connection Setup
2.2.1 Using a Static IP Address
You can use the Static IP address, Subnet Mask and Gateway address provided by your ISP
(Internet Service Provider) for your DVR. The Gateway address is the IP address of your broadband modem.
Internet
2.2.2 Using a Dynamic IP Address
You can use a router with your Dynamic IP broadband modem. In this case, you should set the configuration
of a router properly for network connection between DVR and Net/Web Viewer. Please follow the
instructions in next section to configure your router correctly.
Home/Office Network
Internet
If your Broadband Modem does not support internal loop back (port forwarding) function and
you want to monitor DVR using a PC located in same Intranet, you should use Direct IP instead
of DDVRLS in the connection menu of NetViewer. If your PC is located outside of Intranet, you
can use both DDVRLS and Direct IP to connect to DVR even though your Broadband Modem has
limited features. You will know about DDVRLS and Direct IP in Chapter 7, NVR (NET VIEWER).
12
H.264 Hybrid DVR
2.2.3. Router Configuration
If your DVR is connected to the network through a router, you should configure router properly.
There are 3 steps as follows.
1. WAN Setting 2. DHCP Setting 3. Virtual Server Setting
2.2.3.1. WAN Setting
When you connect to your Router,
you can find menu for WAN setting.
Please confirm the WAN setting. If
you are using DSL service, you
should select PPPoE, and you will be
directed to a sub-menu to type in
DSL user name and password.
2.2.3.2. DHCP & IP Address Setting
To assign an unique private IP address
to DVR in your intranet environment
automatically, you can enable DHCP
option in the Network Setup menu of
your DVR and your Router. In this
case, you can skip the procedures
described on this page.
We recommend assigning IP address
to DVR manually to prevent
unexpected change of IP address.
*A router from D-Link is quoted as an example in this manual. The images of setup menu above may not always match
another router’s setup menu.
If you have any problem with DHCP function or want to assign the private IP address, please disable
DHCP option in the Network Setup menu of your DVR and check the starting and ending IP used by DHCP
server of the Router. You can assign any private IP address to your DVR even if it is out of the DHCP
range, but the IP address should match with the one entered in the Network Setup menu of your DVR.
13
H.264 Hybrid DVR
2.2.3.3. Virtual Server Setting
You should register your DVR as a virtual server. Please enter the information into IP address field
of the router (e.g. 192.168.0.110). You can check an IP address of DVR by pressing Info. key on the
front panel of your DVR.
Protocol Type should be TCP. Private/Public Port numbers should be the same with the Port
numbers assigned in DVR. You can change port numbers in Network Setup menu to avoid conflict
with other network servers.
Your DVR uses 6 port numbers and the default Port numbers are 9350~4 and 80. 9350~4 are for
controlling the video, audio and commands of Net Viewer, and 80 is for Web Viewer. You need to
register 6 port numbers into the router as network servers. Please make sure that your router does
not block those port numbers to/from the DVR with filter and firewall features.
