Operating Instructions

1.1.1

To Access the Camera in IPv6

You need to prepare the followings to access the camera in IPv6.

PC Requirements

Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later

Web Browser: Internet Explorer 6.0 or later

An IPv6 Router

An IPv6 Connection Service

To connect in IPv6, subscribe to the ISP's "IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack" or "IPv6 over

IPv4 Tunneling" service. The camera does not work in IPv6-only network.

IPv6 Domain Name Service

In Windows XP, you cannot access the camera entering IP address on the web browser. You need to enter IPv6 URL registered in the domain name service. We

recommend Viewnetcam.com service (see page 73) as a domain name service.

Ask your ISP about other IPv6 domain name service.

What is IPv6?

• IPv6 is short for "Internet Protocol Version 6".

• IPv6 was created to address the additional IP addresses that will be needed as the Internet continues to expand.

• IPv6 is expected to gradually replace IPv4, with the 2 coexisting for a number of years during a transition period.

• Though most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) do not yet support IPv6, many local networks already use it. When your ISP supports IPv6, your

Panasonic Network Camera will be ready!

• For more information you wish to visit http://www.ipv6.org/.

Operating Instructions

Setting up the IPv6 Router, your PC, and the Camera

Setting up the IPv6 Router

Set up the router as you subscribe to the IPv6 service. If the access from WAN side is disabled on the router, enable the TCP packets from WAN side in the packet filtering. See the Panasonic Network Camera support website at http://

panasonic.co.jp/pcc/products/en/netwkcam/ for information about the recommended routers.

Setting up your PC

1.

Click [Start] [All Programs] [Accessories] [Command Prompt].

• Command Prompt window is displayed.

2.

Enter "ipv6 install".

• "Succeeded" is displayed.

Note

• If Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later is not installed, "Succeeded" will not be displayed. Install it on your PC.

• When you use Windows XP Service Pack 2, click [Start] [Control

Panel] [Security Center] [Windows Firewall] [Advanced] tab [Settings] button of ICMP in the Windows Firewall window, then check [Allow incoming router request] check box in the ICMP Settings window.

3.

Enter "ipconfig".

• If the IPv6 address is properly assigned to your PC, IPv6 address will be displayed on the window.

Setting up the Camera

Usually, IPv6 address is automatically assigned. If you assign a static IPv6

address, see page 56. To access the camera in IPv6, you need to subscribe to a

DynamicDNS service such as Viewnetcam.com, and register the URL.

Confirming that You Can Access the Camera

Confirm that the image is properly displayed (see page 20).

Note

• Refresh interval is [Motion] by default. You can change it on the operation

bar (see page 31).

• Refresh interval may change depending on the network condition, PC performance and what object you view. SD memory recording, using

IPsec or enabling Motion Detection will also slow refresh interval.

• When displaying video (Motion JPEG), the camera allows up to 30 simultaneous accesses. When trying more than 30 accesses, the 31st user will see a gray screen. (Maximum 30 accesses for a Buffered Image page too.)

• When the pan/tilt reaches the end, a shadow may be displayed partially.

This is not a problem.

Connecting the Camera to Your IPv4 Network

The Network page offers three options to configure the camera in IPv4.

• [Automatic Setup] automatically assigns an unused IP address to the camera, and uses UPnP

TM

(Universal Plug and Play) to configure your router.

• [Static] allows the user to use a specific IP address.

• [DHCP] is offered for ISPs who require this option.

1.

Click [Network (IPv4)] on the Setup page.

Automatic Setup

The camera automatically obtains the network settings (subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server address) utilizing a DHCP feature on the router. The camera also automatically searches the unused IP address on your network.

If you select [Yes] at the Allow Access from the Internet, the camera automatically enables port forwarding by using UPnP

TM

. In this case, the camera automatically searches the unused port number on your network in the order of 80 and from 50000 to 50050.

2.8.1

DynamicDNS Service (IPv4/IPv6)

DynamicDNS allows you to choose an easy-to-remember address (such as

"bob.viewnetcam.com") that you can use to view images from your camera over the

Internet. This service is compatible with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Some

DynamicDNS service is not compatible with IPv6 address.

What is the advantage of DynamicDNS service?

In order to view camera images over the Internet, you need to know your camera's global IP address. However, many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) assign their customers a "dynamic" IP address that changes monthly, weekly, or each time they log on. Unless you have been assigned a static IP address (an IP address that does not change periodically) by your ISP, you may find it difficult to access your camera over the Internet because your IP address changes periodically.

Viewnetcam.com service allows you to access your camera even if your assigned global IP address changes.

1.

Your ISP assigns a global IP address to your Internet access account that changes periodically. This is the address needed to access the camera over the Internet.

2.

When your ISP assigned global IP address changes, your camera automatically notifies the DynamicDNS service server of the new address in the DynamicDNS. The camera notifies the DynamicDNS service server of the new address in DynamicDNS in the following cases.

– When starting the camera

– Depending the time to be set at the update interval

– When clicking the [Save] button

3.

The DynamicDNS server contacts a Domain Name System (DNS) and registers your new global IP address to your chosen DynamicDNS address

(such as "bob.viewnetcam.com").

4.

When you enter your DynamicDNS address in your web browser while away from home or the office, the DNS server looks up the global IP address assigned to your DynamicDNS address.

5.

The DNS server finds your current global IP address and allows you to connect to your camera.

Note

• Ask your ISP about what type of IP address you are using.

• Some ISPs assign you a local IP address. In this case, you cannot use the

Operating Instructions

Threshold

What is the threshold?

The threshold is a value for the camera to detect motions on the image during the motion detection buffering. Setting the threshold lower allows subtler changes to be detected. Setting the threshold higher allows bigger changes that might occupy half the image to be detected.

What is the sensitivity?

The sensitivity is the brightness change level for the camera to detect as the motion. The high sensitivity setting enables the camera to detect the slight brightness change. Lower the sensitivity to make the camera to detect only the big brightness change.

Detect motions according to the threshold.

When the level exceeds the threshold, the camera detects motions.

Note

Lowering the threshold and heightening sensitivity enable the camera easily to detect the trivial motion on the part of the image.

129

130

Operating Instructions

Note

• The motion detection is activated by object outline's changes and the brightness changes. This feature is designed to alleviate false detections by overall brightness changes due to sunlight. But in this case, the camera may falsely detect the rapid brightness changes by the artificial light such as the fluorescent light. In other cases, motion detection by the Network

Camera Recorder detects whole objects and brightness changes. The way to detect motion differs between the camera and Network Camera

Recorder. Additionally, if the object's color is absorbed by the background color, the camera is hard to detect the motions.

• The detecting level depends on the object, resolution, or image quality.

Confirm the condition on the Preview window with following the above procedure when setting the Motion Detection.
