11.2.11 Configuring NAT
Purpose:
Two ways are provided for port mapping to realize the remote access via the cross-segment network, UPnP™ and
manual mapping.

UPnPTM
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.

16.1 Glossary
• Dual Stream: Dual stream is a technology used to record high resolution video locally while transmitting
a lower resolution stream over the network. The two streams are generated by the DVR, with the main
stream having a maximum resolution of 4CIF and the sub-stream having a maximum resolution of CIF.
• HDD: Acronym for Hard Disk Drive. A storage medium which stores digitally encoded data on platters
with magnetic surfaces.
• DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network application protocol used by devices
(DHCP clients) to obtain configuration information for operation in an Internet Protocol network.
• HTTP: Acronym for Hypertext Transfer Protocol. A protocol to transfer hypertext request and information
between servers and browsers over a network
• PPPoE: PPPoE, Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, is a network protocol for encapsulating
Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) frames inside Ethernet frames. It is used mainly with ADSL services where
individual users connect to the ADSL transceiver (modem) over Ethernet and in plain Metro Ethernet
networks.
• DDNS: Dynamic DNS is a method, protocol, or network service that provides the capability for a
networked device, such as a router or computer system using the Internet Protocol Suite, to notify a
domain name server to change, in real time (ad-hoc) the active DNS configuration of its configured
hostnames, addresses or other information stored in DNS.
• NTP: Acronym for Network Time Protocol. A protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers
over a network.
• NVR: Acronym for Network Video Recorder. An NVR can be a PC-based or embedded system used for
centralized management and storage for IP cameras, IP Domes and other DVRs.
• PTZ: Acronym for Pan, Tilt, Zoom. PTZ cameras are motor driven systems that allow the camera to pan
left and right, tilt up and down and zoom in and out.


No image displayed on the monitor after starting up normally.
Possible Reasons
a)
No HDMITM connections.
b)
Connection cable is damaged.
c)
Input mode of the monitor is incorrect.
Steps
1. Verify the device is connected with the monitor via HDMITM cable.
