Install the Device behind a NAT
Router
Once installed, the device is accessible on your LAN. To access the device from the
Internet you must configure your broadband router to allow incoming data traffic to the
device. If the device is installed on the LAN with a router, then it may get a dynamic IP
address from the DHCP server. However, if the device wants to be accessed from the
WAN, its IP address needs to be setup as fixed IP, also the port forwarding or Virtual
Server function of router needs to be setup.
However, if your NAT router supports UPnP feature, it can be very easy to achieve NAT
traversal automatically. To do this, enable the NAT-traversal feature, which will attempt
to automatically configure the router to allow access to the camera.
Installing the device with an UPnP router on your network is an easy 3–step procedure:
(1) Enable UPnP option of your NAT router
(2) Enable UPnP NAT traversal option of the Network Camera (default)
(3) Access your Network Camera by DIPS
(1) Enable UPnP option of your NAT router
To use UPnP IGD function (NAT traversal), you need to make sure the UPnP function is
enabled in your router. Most new home routers should support this function. Some of
routers are default enable and others are not. Please check user’s manual of your NAT
router for detail.
(2) Enable UPnP NAT traversal option of the Network Camera
Refer to Setting  Network  UPnP page for detail NAT traversal setting. Note that
this option is default enabled.
(3) Access your Network Camera by DIPS
Refer to Setting  System  System page for detail DIPS information.

31/96
Network Camera User’s Guide
the port number to login. If the http port is not assigned as 80, users have to add the port
number in back of IP address. For example: http://192.168.0.100:8080.
Therefore, the user can access the device by either
http://xx.xx.xx.xx/, or
http://xx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx/ to access the device.
If multiple devices are installed on the LAN and also required to be accessed from the
WAN, then the HTTP Port can be assigned as the virtual server port mapping to support
multiple devices.
Click “OK” to save and enable the setting.

HTTPS is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to
provide encrypted communication and secure identification of a network web server.
HTTPS connections are often used for sensitive transactions in corporate information
systems. The main idea of HTTPS is to create a secure channel over an insecure
network. This ensures reasonable protection from eavesdroppers and man-in-the-middle
attacks, provided that adequate cipher suites are used and that the server certificate is
verified and trusted.

DDNS: Stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provides you at least one IP address which you use
to connect to the Internet. The address you get may be static, meaning it never changes,
or dynamic, meaning it’s likely to change periodically. Just how often it changes,
depends on your ISP. A dynamic IP address complicates remote access since you may
not know what your current WAN IP address is when you want to access your device
over the Internet. One of the possible solutions to the dynamic IP address problem
comes in the form of a dynamic DNS service.
A dynamic DNS service is unique because it provides a means of updating your IP

address so that your listing will remain current when your IP address changes. There are
several excellent DDNS services available on the Internet. One such service you can
use is www.DynDNS.org. You’ll need to register with the service and set up the domain
name of your choice to begin using it. Please refer to the home page of the service for
detailed instructions or refer to Appendix G for more information.
If your device is connected to xDSL directly, you might need this feature. However, if
your device is behind a NAT router, you will not need to enable this feature because
your NAT router should take care of this job. As to xDSL environment, most of the users
will use dynamic IP addresses. If users want to set up a web or a FTP server, then the
Dynamic Domain Name Server is necessary.

PPPoE
PPPoE: Stands for Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet
A standard builds on Ethernet and Point-to-Point network protocol. It allows your device
with xDSL or cable connects with broadband network directly, then your device can dial
up and get a dynamic IP address. For more PPPoE and Internet configuration, please
consult your dealer or ISP.
The device can directly connect to the xDSL, however, it should be setup on a LAN
environment to program the PPPoE information first, and then connect to the xDSL
modem. Power on again, then the device will dial on to the ISP connect to the WAN
through the xDSL modem.

Streaming
RTSP is a streaming control protocol, and a starting point for negotiating transports such
as RTP, multicast and Unicast, and for negotiating codecs. RTSP can be considered a
"remote control" for controlling the media stream delivered by a media server. RTSP
servers typically use RTP as the protocol for the actual transport of audio/video data.
RTSP Port:
Choose the RTSP port. The RTSP protocol allows a connecting client to start a video
stream. Enter the RTSP port number to use. The default value is 554.
RTP Port:
Specify the range of transmission port number of video stream. The default range is
50000 to 50999. User can specify a number between 1024 and 65535.

Bonjour
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of
computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP
protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter
IP addresses or configure DNS servers. Specifically, Bonjour enables automatic IP
address assignment without a DHCP server, name to address translation without a DNS
server, and service discovery without a directory server. Bonjour is an open protocol
which Apple has submitted to the IETF as part of the ongoing standards-creation
process.

Video: Configure profile
This device provides 2 modes of video profile. The first one is 2 Mega mode which
supports video resolution up to 2 Mega-pixel. However the maximum frame rate of this
mode is up to 15fps only. The second one is 720p mode which supports video resolution
up to 1280x720 but frame rate can be up to 30fps. User only can select either 2 Mega or
720p mode to operate the camera. Switching 2 Mega and 720p mode, the device will
take time to reboot system.
Common
Video Profile:
User can only choose either 720p or 2 Mega modes. 720p mode can serve streams up
to 1280x720 resolution maximum. On the other hand, 2 Mega mode, it can streams up to
1080p or 1600x1200 resolution (depend on model) maximum.
Note that this camera supports local video output for TV monitor. It’s very useful to check
view angle or focus during camera installation. However, the local video output in only
available at “720p” mode. If user needs this function, must switch this camera to “720p”

Rate Control:
Defines the rate control method of this profile. There are four options: Constant Bit Rate
(CBR), Variable Bit Rate (VBR), Enhanced Constant Bit Rate (ECBR), and Enhanced
Variable Bit Rate (EVBR).
For CBR, the video bit rate is between low to high bandwidth based on different
resolutions. User can set the desired bit rate to match the limitation of bandwidth.
For VBR, user should choose the quality level to set the video quality rather than bit rate.
The quality level is between 1 and 100. The higher value can reach the better quality but
of course will consume higher bandwidth.
For ECBR, the video bitrate is based on normal CBR mode. However, the target bitrate
can be increased to max target bitrate while lots of motion in video. The max target
bitrate will keep a pre-defined time period and then back to normal CBR bitrate.
For EVBR, the video bitrate is based on normal VBR mode. However, the bitrate can be
55/96
Network Camera User’s Guide
limited to the max bitrate while lots of motion in video.
Max Frame Rate:
Defines the targeted frame rate of this profile. For example, set the frame rate to 15 fps,
then the image will be updated for 15 frames per second as possible. User need to set
reasonable max frame rate versus video quality under the limited bandwidth.
GOP Control:
Defines the Intra/Inter-frame (I/P) ratio of this profile. For example, set the GOP to 30,
then the video stream will have one Intra-frame every 30 frames.

Appendix B: PING IP Address
The PING (stands for Packet Internet Groper) command is used to detect whether a
specific IP address is accessible by sending a packet to the specific address and waiting
for a reply. It’s also a very useful tool to confirm the device installed or if the IP address
conflicts with any other devices over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of the device, utilize the PING command as
follows:

Launch a Command Prompt.

Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the device. For
example, ping 192.168.0.100
The replies, as illustrated below, will provide an explanation to the problem.
If you want to detect any other devices conflicts with the IP address of Network Camera,
also can utilize the PING command but you must disconnect the Camera from the
network first.

Appendix C: Bandwidth Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the device depends on connection bandwidth
between client and server, video resolution, codec type, and quality setting of server.
Here is a guideline to help you roughly estimate the bandwidth requirements form your
device.
The required bandwidth depends on content of video source. The slow motion video will
produce smaller bit rate generally and fast motion will produce higher bit rate vice versa.
Actual results generated by the device may be varying.

Thus, you may not be able to receive good quality video while also streaming
audio on a 128 kbps or lower connection. Even though the upload speed is
more than 128kbps, for optimal video performance, disabling audio
streaming will get better video performance.

Appendix E: Configure Port
Forwarding Manually
The device can be used with a router. If the device wants to be accessed from the WAN,
its IP address needs to be setup as fixed IP address, also the port forwarding or Virtual
Server function of router needs to be setup. This device supports UPnP traversal
function. Therefore, user could use this feature to configure port forwarding of NAT
router first. However, if user needs to configure port forwarding manually, please follow
the steps as below:
Manually installing the device with a router on your network is an easy 3–step procedure
as following:
(1) Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
(2) Access the Router with Your Web browser
(3) Open/Configure Virtual Server Ports of Your Router
(1) Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
The device must be assigned a local and fixed IP Address that allows it to be recognized
by the router. Manually setup the device with a fixed IP address, for example,
192.168.0.100.
(2) Access the Router with Your Web browser
The following steps generally apply to any router that you have on your network. The
D-Link DI-624 is used as an example to clarify the configuration process. Configure the
initial settings of the router by following the steps outlined in the router’s Quick
Installation Guide.
If you have cable or DSL service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN
IP Address. ‘Dynamic’ means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time
to time depending on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP Address identifies your router on the
public network and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what your router’s WAN
IP Address is, go to the Status screen on your router and locate the WAN information
for your router. As shown on the following page the WAN IP Address will be listed. This
will be the address that you will need to type in your web browser to view your camera
over the Internet. Be sure to uncheck the Reset IP address at next boot button at the
top of the screen after modifying the IP address. Failure to do so will reset the IP
address when you restart your computer.
81/96
Network Camera User’s Guide
Your WAN IP Address will be listed here.
Note: Because a dynamic WAN IP can change from time to time depending on your
ISP, you may want to obtain a Static IP address from your ISP. A Static IP address is a
fixed IP address that will not change over time and will be more convenient for you to
use to access your camera from a remote location. If you could not get a Static IP
address from your ISP, the DIPS™ or DDNS is a solution alternatively. Please refer to
Appendix G for more information.
(3) Open/set Virtual Server Ports to enable remote image viewing
The firewall security features built into the router and most routers prevent users from
accessing the video from the device over the Internet. The router connects to the
Internet over a series of numbered ports. The ports normally used by the device are
blocked from access over the Internet. Therefore, these ports need to be made
accessible over the Internet. This is accomplished using the Virtual Server function on
the router. The Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be opened through the
router for remote access to your camera. Virtual Server is accessed by clicking on the
Advanced tab of the router screen.
Follow these steps to configure your router’s Virtual Server settings
• Click Enabled.
• Enter a unique name for each entry.
• Select Both under Protocol Type (TCP and UDP)
• Enter your camera’s local IP Address (e.g., 192.168.0.100, for example) in the
Private IP field.
82/96
Network Camera User’s Guide
• If you are using the default camera port settings, enter 80 into the Public and
Private Port section, click Apply.
• Scheduling should be set to Always so that the camera images can be accessed
at any time.
A check mark appearing before the entry name will indicate that the ports are enabled.
Important: Some ISPs block access to port 80. Be sure to check with your ISP so that
you can open the appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port
80, you will need to change the port the camera uses from 80 to something else, such as
8080. Not all routers are the same, so refer to your user manual for specific instructions
on how to open ports.
Enter valid ports in the Virtual Server section of your router. Please make sure to check
the box on this line to enable settings. Then the device can be access from WAN by the
router’s WAN IP Address.
By now, you have finished your entire PC configuration for this device.

Appendix F: DDNS Application
1. Preface
If you have a Cable modem or xDSL, this is a great way to host your own Networked
Device or other TCP/IP Service. Get your own domain like www.yourname.com,
www.yourname.com.tw etc. (Note: This domain must be registered with Internic via
registration authorities such as Network Solutions, DirectNIC, Register.com etc).
Your domain name's dynamic IP address is automatically tracked by a DDNS server.
Host your own Networked Device and much more no matter what your computer's IP
address may be and even if you have dialup, DSL or cable modem internet
connection where your computer's IP address changes all the time!! DDNS service
supports
all top
level domain names including but not limited
to .com, .net, .org, .to, .uk etc.
2. Ethernet Network Environment
Normally, DDNS service is only necessary for the users that could only obtain
dynamic IP addresses. As to the users that could obtain the static valid IP address,
they do not usually have to apply the DDNS service. Before we decide if DDNS is
necessary for the users, we have to check what kind of Ethernet network
environment we have to install our Networked Device on.
(1) Environment of Fixed Valid IP Network
If users could obtain valid IP addresses, they could save the effort to apply DDNS
service. Because the IP address in this environment is fixed, users could input
the IP address or domain name of demo site directly in the IE browser.
(2) Environment of Dynamic IP Network
If users is under an environment of dynamic IP network (Dial-up xDSL), they
have to apply a domain name in advance. Then apply DDNS service. Finally
setup the necessary information of DDNS and PPPoE of the Networked Device
in order to let the outside administrator be able to access through internet.
3. Application Steps—DDNS & Domain Name
(1). Visit the following web site: http://www.dyndns.org/
(2). Click “Account”

(10). Click the “Get Started”.
(11). We could create a domain name without any charge at this step. First, we input
the host name. (Pink No.1) Then we pick a domain that is easy to remember. (Pink
No.2) The 3rd step is to click “Offline Hostname” from Service Type. (Pink No.3)
Finally, click the “Create Host” to submit the domain name information and finish
DDNS application. (Pink No.4)
