11.2.8 Configuring NAT
Purpose:
Two ways are provided for port mapping to realize the remote access via the cross-segment network, UPnP™ and
manual mapping.
UPnP TM

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP™) can permit the device seamlessly discover the presence of other network devices
on the network and establish functional network services for data sharing, communications, etc. You can use the
UPnP™ function to enable the fast connection of the device to the WAN via a router without port mapping.
Before you start:
If you want to enable the UPnP™ function of the device, you must enable the UPnP™ function of the router to
which your device is connected. When the network working mode of the device is set as multi-address, the Default
Route of the device should be in the same network segment as that of the LAN IP address of the router.
Steps:
1.
Enter the Network Settings interface.
Menu > Configuration > Network
2.
Select the NAT tab to enter the port mapping interface.
Figure 11. 23 UPnP™ Settings Interface

Steps:
1)
Select Manual in the drop-down list of Mapping Type.
2)
Click
to activate the External Port Settings dialog box. Configure the external port No. for server
port, http port, RTSP port and https port respectively.
 You can use the default port No., or change it according to actual requirements.
 External Port indicates the port No. for port mapping in the router.
 The value of the RTSP port No. should be 554 or between 1024 and 65535, while the value of the
other ports should be between 1 and 65535 and the value must be different from each other. If
multiple devices are configured for the UPnP™ settings under the same router, the value of the
port No. for each device should be unique.

 The IP camera frequently goes online and offline and the status of it displays as “Disconnected”.
Possible Reasons
a)
The IP camera and the NVR versions are not compatible.
b)
Unstable power supply of IP camera.
c)
Unstable network between IP camera and NVR.
d)
Limited flow by the switch connected with IP camera and NVR.
Steps

2) When the IP camera is offline, please try the ping command on PC to check if the PC connects with
the IP camera.
3. Verify the network between IP camera and NVR is stable.
1) When the IP camera is offline, connect PC and NVR with the RS-232 cable.
2) Open the Super Terminal, use the ping command and keep sending large data packages to the
connected IP camera, and check if there exists packet loss.
Simultaneously press Ctrl and C to exit the ping command.
Example: Input ping 172.6.22.131 –l 1472 –f.
4. Verify the switch is not flow control.
Check the brand, model of the switch connecting IP camera and NVR, and contact with the manufacturer
of the switch to check if it has the function of flow control. If so, please turn it down.

1. Enable the output channel.
2. Select “Menu > Configuration > Live View > View”, and select video output interface in the drop-down
list and configure the window you want to view.
 The view settings can only be configured by the local operation of NVR.

separately, and digits like “D1”and “D2” stands for the channel number, and “X” means the selected
window has no image output.
3. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

Live view stuck when video output locally.
Possible Reasons:
a)
Poor network between NVR and IP camera, and there exists packet loss during the transmission.
b)
The frame rate has not reached the real-time frame rate.
Steps:
1. Verify the network between NVR and IP camera is connected.
1) When image is stuck, connect the RS-232 ports on PC and the rear panel of NVR with the RS-232
cable.
2) Open the Super Terminal, and execute the command of “ping 192.168.0.0 –l 1472 –f” (the IP address
may change according to the real condition), and check if there exists packet loss.
Simultaneously press Ctrl and C to exit the ping command.
2. Verify the frame rate is real-time frame rate.
Select “Menu > Record > Parameters > Record”, and set the Frame rate to Full Frame.
3. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

Live view stuck when video output remotely via the Internet Explorer or platform software.
Possible Reasons:
a)

Simultaneously press Ctrl and C to exit the ping command.
2. Verify the network between NVR and PC is connected.
1)
Open the cmd window in the Start menu, or you can press “windows+R” shortcut key to open it.
2)
Use the ping command to send large packet to the NVR, execute the command of “ping
192.168.0.0 –l 1472 –f” (the IP address may change according to the real condition), and check if
there exists packet loss.
Simultaneously press Ctrl and C to exit the ping command.
3. Verify the hardware of the PC is good enough.
Simultaneously press Ctrl, Alt and Delete to enter the windows task management interface, as shown in
the following figure.



Select the “Performance” tab; check the status of the CPU and Memory.
If the resource is not enough, please end some unnecessary processes.
4. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

When using the NVR to get the live view audio, there is no sound or there is too much noise, or the
volume is too low.
Possible Reasons:
a) Cable between the pickup and IP camera is not connected well; impedance mismatches or incompatible.
b) The stream type is not set as “Video & Audio”.
c) The encoding standard is not supported with NVR.
Steps:
209
Network Video Recorder User Manual
1. Verify the cable between the pickup and IP camera is connected well; impedance matches and
compatible.
Log in the IP camera directly, and turn the audio on, check if the sound is normal. If not, please contact the
manufacturer of the IP camera.
2. Verify the setting parameters are correct.
Select “Menu > Record > Parameters > Record”, and set the Stream Type as “Audio & Video”.
3. Verify the audio encoding standard of the IP camera is supported by the NVR.
NVR supports G722.1 and G711 standards, and if the encoding parameter of the input audio is not one of
the previous two standards, you can log in the IP camera to configure it to the supported standard.
4. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

The image gets stuck when NVR is playing back by single or multi-channel.
Possible Reasons:
a) Poor network between NVR and IP camera, and there exists packet loss during the transmission.
b) The frame rate is not the real-time frame rate.
c) The NVR supports up to 16-channel synchronize playback at the resolution of 4CIF, if you want a 16channel synchronize playback at the resolution of 720p, the frame extracting may occur, which leads to a
slight stuck.
Steps:
1. Verify the network between NVR and IP camera is connected.
1) When image is stuck, connect the RS-232 ports on PC and the rear panel of NVR with the RS-232
cable.
2) Open the Super Terminal, and execute the command of “ping 192.168.0.0 –l 1472 –f” (the IP address
may change according to the real condition), and check if there exists packet loss.
Simultaneously press the Ctrl and C to exit the ping command.
2. Verify the frame rate is real-time frame rate.
Select “Menu > Record > Parameters > Record”, and set the Frame Rate to “Full Frame”.
3. Verify the hardware can afford the playback.
Reduce the channel number of playback.
Select “Menu > Record > Encoding > Record”, and set the resolution and bitrate to a lower level.
4. Reduce the number of local playback channel.
Select “Menu > Playback”, and uncheck the checkbox of unnecessary channels.
5. Check if the fault is solved by the above steps.
If it is solved, finish the process.
If not, please contact the engineer from our company to do the further process.

No record file found in the NVR local HDD, and prompt “No record file found”.
Possible Reasons:
