Network Deployment
Setting up the Network Camera over the Internet
There are several ways to set up the Network Camera over the Internet. The first way is to set
up the Network Camera behind a router. The second way is to utilize a static IP. The third way is
to use PPPoE.
Internet connection via a router
Before setting up the Network Camera over the Internet, make sure you have a router and follow
the steps below.
1. Connect your Network Camera behind a router, the Internet environment is illustrated below.
Regarding how to obtain your IP address, please refer to Software Installation on page 21 for
details.

IP address : 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
Default router : 192.168.0.1
2. In this case, if the Local Area Network (LAN) IP address of your Network Camera is
192.168.0.3, please forward the following ports for the Network Camera on the router.
■ Secondary HTTP port: 8080
■ RTSP port: 554
■ RTP port for audio: 5558
■ RTCP port for audio: 5559
■ RTP port for video: 5556
■ RTCP port for video: 5557
If you have changed the port numbers on the Network page, please open the ports accordingly
on your router. For information on how to forward ports on the router, please refer to your
router’s user’s manual.
3. Find out the public IP address of your router provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Use the public IP and the secondary HTTP port to access the Network Camera from the
18 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
Internet. Please refer to Network Type on page 66 for details.
For example, your router and IP settings may look like this:
Device
IP Address: internal
IP Address: External Port (Mapped port on the
port

192.168.2.11:80
122.146.57.120:8001
...
...
...
Configure the router, virtual server or firewall, so that the router can forward any data coming
into a preconfigured port number to a network camera on the private network, and allow data
from the camera to be transmitted to the outside of the network over the same path.
From
Forward to
122.146.57.120:8000 192.168.2.10:80
122.146.57.120:8001 192.168.2.11:80
...
...
When properly configured, you can access a camera behind the router using the HTTP request
as follows: http://122.146.57.120:8000
If you change the port numbers on the Network configuration page, please open the ports
accordingly on your router. For example, you can open a management session with your router
to configure access through the router to the camera within your local network. Please consult
your network administrator for router configuration if you have troubles with the configuration.
For more information with network configuration options (such as that of streaming ports),
please refer to Configuration > Network Settings. VIVOTEK also provides the automatic port
forwarding feature as an NAT traversal function with the precondition that your router must
support the UPnP port forwarding feature.

Internet connection with static IP
Choose this connection type if you are required to use a static IP for the Network Camera.
Please refer to LAN on page 66 for details.
Internet connection via PPPoE (Point-to-Point over Ethernet)
Choose this connection type if you are connected to the Internet via a DSL Line. Please refer to
PPPoE on page 67 for details.
General Connection
1. Connect the Network Camera's Ethernet cable (CAT5e) to a PoE Plus switch. A 30W PoE
output port alone can not drive the onboard heater, and hence if using the PoE switch alone,
the application does not apply in low-temperature condition. 30W PoE plus can only drive the
camera when it is working at a temperature higher than -5ºC.
2. Connect the power wires to an AC 24V power adaptor (user-supplied). The AC 24V adapter
can drive the camera and the onboard heater.
You can connect both power sources for redundancy in power supply.

H.264 / MPEG-4 Protocol Options
H.264/MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four transmission modes of H.264 or MPEG-4
streaming:
UDP unicast: This protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, network
packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be broken. Activate UDP connection
when occasions require time-sensitive responses and the video quality is less important. Note that each
unicast client connecting to the server takes up additional bandwidth and the Network Camera allows up
to ten simultaneous accesses.
UDP multicast: This protocol allows multicast-enabled routers to forward network packets to all clients
requesting streaming media. This helps reduce the network transmission load of the Network Camera
while serving multiple clients at the same time. Note that to utilize this feature, the Network Camera must
be configured to enable multicast streaming at the same time. For more information, please refer to
RTSP Streaming on page 76.
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. The downside of this protocol is that its real-time effect is not as good as that of the UDP protocol.
HTTP: This protocol allows the same quality as TCP protocol without needing to open specific ports for
streaming under some network environments. Users inside a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
streaming data through.

Local Streaming Buffer Time
In a busy network, fluctuations in available bandwidth can occur. Video streaming may lag and may
not proceed very smoothly. If you enable this option, video streams from the camera will be temporarily
stored on the computer’s cache memory for a configurable period of time (seconds or milliseconds)
before being played on a web session. This will help you see the streaming more smoothly. If you enter
3,000 Millisecond, the streaming will delay for 3 seconds.
