You could set up the network with DHCP or fixed IP:
1. DHCP: Check the "Get IP by DHCP Server automatically" will force the device to renew its IP address whenever it reboots, and the related network configuration is provided by the DHCP server.
2. Fixed IP: If you want the device to use a fixed IP, please uncheck the "Get IP by
DHCP Server automatically" checkbox and assign a valid IP address, subnet
mask, default gateway and DNS server for the device.
If your device is located behind the router (such as private fixed IP, private DHCP) and you want to access it through the LAN, your router must be configured first. The
Network Setting page. The UPnP technology will configure your router automatically, but if your router doesn’t support UPnP, you need to configure the port numbers manually. The Installation Wizard 2 will detect whether your router support UPnP or not. If your router support UPnP, Installation wizard 2 will choose the “UPnP port forwarding” for you, otherwise it will choose the “Manual” mode and you have to inspect those port numbers and make the port mapping on your router manually.
Figure 2-13 UPnP Port Forwarding setting
Figure 2-14 DDNS Setting
The DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) is a method of keeping a domain name mapping to a dynamic public IP address. In many cable/DSL connections, a dynamic public IP address is assigned for every connecting request. After you setup your
DDNS service, and then the device would automatically update your connect information if the public IP address had been changed.
You have to enter the “Host name”, “E-Mail address”, “Key” and “Confirm key” to initiate the DDNS. The “Host name” should be 1~64 character(s), and the “E-Mail
address” will receive some DDNS information, please input your e-mail address carefully.
If you have a fixed public IP, or you don’t plan to access the camera on LAN, you may unchecked the “Enable DDNS” to disable the DDNS function.
If you forgot your DDNS key (password), you could input the Hostname and E-mail address first, and then click on the “Forget Key” button. The key will be sent to your e-mail box by the DDNS provider automatically.
If the hostname haven’t been registered before, you should click on the “Register
DDNS” to register the hostname. If you didn’t register the DDNS (now and before), it might not work properly.
The DDNS provider usually has a minimal time interval of each registration, for
Safe100.net, it is about 10 minutes.
If you want to use another DDNS rather than safe100.net, you can click on the
“Advanced Information” to change the DDNS provider. There are two service providers in the advanced setting, one is saf100.net and another is Custom DDNS server. If you choose the Custom DDNS server, you have to enter the Server address

“SSID” (Service Set Identifier), it is a name which identified a wireless network.
Access Points and wireless clients attempting to connect to a specific WLAN
(Wireless Local Area Network) must use the same SSID. The default setting is default.
Note: The maximum length of SSID is 32 single-byte characters.
“Wireless mode” Click on the pull-down menu, and you can see the following options:
1. “Infrastructure” Make the device connect to the WLAN via an Access Point
(The default setting). “Ad-Hoc” Make the device connect directly to a host equipped with a wireless adapter in peer-to-peer mode.
2. “Channel” While in infrastructure mode, the channel will be set automatically to the same channel setting of the selected Access Point. While in Ad-Hoc mode, the channel must be set to the same channel for each wireless adapter. The default channel setting depends on the installed region.
220.127.116.11.2 Data Encryption
“Encrypt” You can choose the encryption type you want in the pull-down menu, there are three items: None, WEP and WPA-PSK.
If your wireless environment doesn’t need encryption, please choose “None”.
If your encryption is WEP, please choose the “WEP” in the Encrypt pull-down menu
Figure 2-19 WEP Setting page
“Auth. Mode” Choose one of the following modes,
“Shared” – allows communication only with other devices on identical WEP settings.
“Open” – communicates the key across the network.
“Key length”: The administrator can select the key length among 64 or128 bits. The selection will depend on the selected device.
“Key format”: Hexadecimal or ASCII.
“HEX” digits consist of the numbers 0~9 and the letters A-F.
“ASCII” is a code for representing English letters as numbers from 0-127 except “,
<, > and space characters that are reserved.
“Key”: Enter a key in either hexadecimal or ASCII format. When selecting different key length, acceptable input length is listed as following:
64 bits key length: 10 Hex digits or 5 characters.
128 bites key length: 26 Hex digits or 13 characters.
If your encryption type is WPA, please choose the “WPA-PSK”. And you have to enter the pre-shared key and choose a proper encryption algorithm (TKIP, AES)

Figure 2-23 Access Information
The access information page shows you all the information about how to access the server. There are three access types:
1. Access from Home: If you access the server from home, you could use the domain name (or IP address) and port (if the http port is not 80) to connect the server.
2. Access from Internet: If you access the server from Internet, or you want to share the server with your family or friends, you should use this IP Address (or domain name) and port. If the server is behind the router, it will check whether the UPnP or port mapping is enabled. If the UPnP and port mapping is failed, it will show a “Warning Icon” after the link. If the “Warning Icon” appears after the link, the server won’t be able to access from Internet.
3. Access from Quicktime: If your server supports the RTSP, A link will be displayed for you to access from QuickTime or other devices supported RTSP
(such as 3GPP Mobile Phone). You can connect to the server via this link.
