The mobile DVR allows you to use a Web browser to remotely view and manage the system. You
can also receive live video streaming from the mobile DVR using your smartphone.
Note: Since every Network Configuration is different, please check with your Network
Administrator or ISP to see if your mobile DVR should use specific IP addresses and/or port
numbers.
6.6.1
LAN
According to your network environment, select Static IP, DHCP or PPPoE to configure an IP
address to the mobile DVR.
LAN Port: Select LAN1 or LAN2 from the drop down list. It’s recommended to use LAN 1 for
connecting to the IP cameras via a hub or switch, and use LAN 2 for WAN connection.
Network Type: Three options are selectable: Static IP, DHCP and PPPoE.
Static IP: User can set a fixed IP for network connection.
DHCP: DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP configuration for the network
connection.
114
EMV401 / 801 / 1601 Hybrid Mobile DVR
PPPoE: For direct connection to the DSL only. Verify with your ISP if they use PPPoE (The
option is only for Lan2).
IP address: Displays the mobile DVR’s current IPv4 IP Address. A static IP address must be set
manually. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Subnet Mask: Displays the subnet mask for your network so the mobile DVR will be
recognized within the network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Gateway: Displays the gateway on your network for the mobile DVR to use when
communicating with any devices not on the local network. If DHCP is selected, this value will
be assigned automatically.
DNS Server 1: Displays the primary DNS server for your network. If DHCP is selected and an
internet connection is available, this value should be assigned automatically. This field must
have a valid DNS address in order to use the DDNS feature (see 6.6.5 DDNS).
DNS Server 2: This field shows the secondary DNS server for your network.
HTTP Port: Port number for HTTP/WEB communication.
Bandwidth Limit (Kbps): Specify, disabled / 128 K/ 256 K / 512 K / 768K / 1M / 3M bps. This is
the maximum bandwidth that the mobile DVR is allowed to use on the network. This is a
useful function when connecting the mobile DVR to busy or heavily loaded networks, or when
accessing the mobile DVR(s) over a WAN.
Network ID: The network ID is an identifier for the alarm transmitter (mobile DVR sending the
alarm).
Additional information:
1. Set up the mobile DVR Network Menu according to the instructions detailed in the
Networking chapter of this mobile DVR’s manual.
a. If using DHCP, all settings will be detected automatically. While DHCP is a useful tool
for determining the network settings, if you set up your mobile DVR in this manner its
IP address may change at different times for different reasons, particularly after a
power failure. If the IP address of the mobile DVR changes, you may have difficulties
accessing your mobile DVR locally and/or remotely. It is strongly recommended that
you assign a fixed (static) IP address to your mobile DVR, and that in order to avoid
address conflicts the IP address assigned be outside of the DHCP range of addresses
your router issues to DHCP clients. Please do not set the DHCP address issued to the
mobile DVR by the router as its static IP address unless you take specific steps that
program your router to prevent such address conflicts.
b. If using a Fixed IP (recommended), you will need to input the information manually. In
order for DDNS to work, you must enter valid data, compatible with your network, for
all four of the network setting fields: IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and the
115
EMV401 / 801 / 1601 Hybrid Mobile DVR
DNS Address (depending on your network hardware and IP configuration this may be
the IP address of your router/gateway, or it may be the actual IP address of the local
DNS server). The DNS server IP is required because your DNS server provides critical
information necessary for the mobile DVR to communicate with the DDNS server.
You can obtain the actual DNS IP from your Internet Service Provider (ISP); or, from a PC
located on the same LAN as the mobile DVR, go to http://www.dnsserverlist.org/ to obtain a
list of the IP addresses of their recommendation of the best servers to use for your location.
2. If you are connecting through a router, make sure that you have ‘opened up’ all the
required network ports in the port forwarding section of your router’s setup options. That
is, you have directed the router to send any incoming traffic using those IP ports to the
LAN IP address of the mobile DVR. Useful information about router port forwarding can
be found at www.portforward.com . Different routers may use different terms for port
forwarding function. For instance, D-Link calls it virtual server, Netopia calls it pinholes.
The default port for the mobile DVR is: 80
Note: Port 80 is the default port used for Web browsing. Because of this, in order to
prevent the average user from hosting a Web server, most ISPs BLOCK traffic using port 80
from reaching the average site. If you only plan to view your mobile DVR on a LAN, you
can use port 80, and don’t have to concern yourself with DDNS or routers. However, if you
desire remote access to your mobile DVR, perhaps using DDNS (optional), you MUST
select functional ports and set up the port forwarding in your router. Other ports, such as
8080 and 8000 are sometimes blocked by ISPs as well.
What port(s) should be used? There are 65,535 valid IP ports to choose from. These are
broken down into three groups:
•
Well Known Ports 0 thru 1023
•
Registered Ports 1024 thru 49151
•
Dynamic and/or Private Ports 49152 thru 65535
So, rather than encounter a port conflict by choosing a port commonly used for another
purpose (like port 25 for SMTP mail or port 448 for secure sockets), choose an ‘unusual’
port number. For example, add 50,000 to your house number: 50,123 is less likely to lead
to a port conflict. For a list of the known and registered ports, see
http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

6.6.5 DDNS
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) is a service used to map a domain name to the
dynamic IP address of a network device. You can set up the DDNS service for remote access to
the mobile DVR.
DDNS assigns a domain name (URL) to the mobile DVR, so that the user does not need to go
through the trouble of checking if the IP address assigned by DHCP Server has changed. Once
the IP is changed, the mobile DVR will automatically update the information to the DDNS to
ensure it is always available for remote access.
Before enabling the following DDNS function, user should have applied for a host name from
the DDS service provider’s website. We support two DDNS server providers:
www.everfocusddns.com and www.dyndns.com.
Note: We highly recommend that you use xxxx.everfocusddns.com for the simplicity of
setting up your mobile DVR.

Resolution: Recording resolution is displayed.
Normal: Frame rate in FPS for continuous recording. It is important to keep track of the
normal recording resources being allocated at each hours of the day. Increasing the Normal
recording resolution and/or rate can inadvertently request more recording resources than the
mobile DVR is capable of delivering, or allocate so much of the mobile DVRs resources that
there is no excess available for increased FPS rate and/or resolution in response to an Event.
The speed is limited by the maximum total recording capacity of the mobile DVR as allocated
across TV standard in global setting, all the installed cameras, with an upper limit of 30 FPS
(NTSC – 25 PAL) per individual camera (real time recording). The PARAGON960 x4 can record
480 fps (NTSC) / 400 fps (PAL) at WD1.
Since EverFocus mobile DVRs have the capability to change the FPS rate in response to events,
it may be advisable to reserve some recording capacity for event response.
Event: Maximum desired frame rate in frames per second (FPS) for event recording; if more
than one camera requires simultaneous event recording, the total for all cameras cannot
exceed the maximum available FPS for the mobile DVR at the corresponding resolution
setting, and the available FPS may be divided across the cameras responding to an event.
Action: Check this box to enable notifications enabled elsewhere (Buzzer, Alarm out, E-mail,
and Network Alarm) when an event occurs.

9. Troubleshooting
If you have problems with the system, run through the following checklist to see if you can solve
the problem.




The mobile DVR will not go into record mode.

Bring up the mobile DVR’s Menu and check under the Camera Menu. Verify that all
connected cameras are checked as “Installed” and that Record Mode is set to
“Continuous”.

Check the Disk or Information Menus and verify that the internal hard drive is being
detected.
The mobile DVR displays nothing on the main monitor.

Make sure the monitor is connected to either BNC Main Monitor port or the VGA port. If
the monitor has multiple inputs, make sure it is on the correct input source and display
setting (1024x768).

Check that the monitor cables are good and power is on.

Verify the recorder is getting the correct supply power.
There is no display coming from one of the channels on the mobile DVR.

In the mobile DVR’s Camera Menu, make sure that all cameras are checked as “Installed”
and unchecked for “Covert”.

If there is still no picture, switch ports or connect a working camera to the port that has
no picture. If you get an image, the problem is coming from the camera or cable.
I cannot connect to the recorder via the internet.

Check that you can connect to the mobile DVR on the LAN.

Check that the mobile DVR has a static IP address and the port used by the mobile DVR is
forwarded correctly to that IP address in the router.

Verify that your Internet Service Provider does not block the IP port being used

Make sure you are using the correct WAN IP address given by the ISP, or, if you have a
Dynamic IP, check if the IP address has changed; use DDNS to avoid problems caused by
changing ISP addresses.

Appendix
A
Appendix A: Network Overview
This chapter will give you a basic instruction on how to set up the mobile DVR for network
connection. It is highly recommended that you have a working knowledge of what a network is
and how it works. This will be helpful in completing the networking process.
Introduction to TCP / IP
TCP/IP is the group of protocols used by the Internet and most Local Area Networks (LANs)
throughout the world. In TCP/IP, every computer or other communications device that is
connected to the network has a unique IP address. By doing this you are giving your device a
unique address similar to the address of your house. An IP address is composed of four octets
(numbers in the range of 0 to 255) separated by decimal points. The IP address is used to uniquely
identify a host or computer on the LAN. For example, one computer on a network could have an IP
address of 192.168.1.127.
You should never give two or more devices the same exact IP address, but the first three octets of
an IP address is often the same for all computers in the local area network. For example, if a total
of 253 computers exist in a single LAN, the IP addresses could be assigned starting with
192.168.1.x, where x represents a number in the range of 2 to 254. In IPP address could be
compared with a telephone number.
Subnet Masks
Each host in a LAN has a subnet mask. The subnet mask is a set of octets that is used to determine
which LAN or class it belongs to. The number 255 is usually used to represent the network address
portion of the IP address and a zero is placed at the end to identify the host portion of the address.
Basically the subnet mask tells the devices how the network addresses are organized, and helps to
determine which addresses are local and which are remote (on the other side of the router).
172
EMV401 / 801 / 1601 Hybrid Mobile DVR
Gateway Address
Addressees are either local or remote. A gateway address is composed of four octets separated by
decimal points. The gateway address is used to uniquely identify the device on the LAN that has
access to the communications links connecting to other LANs, WANs and/or the Internet (access
to the ‘remote’ addresses).
Virtual Ports
A port number represents a "channel" or entryway for network communications. Port numbers
allow different computers to utilize network resources without interfering with each other. Port
numbers most commonly appear in network programming, particularly socket programming.
Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to the casual user. For example, some
websites on the Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.sitename.com:8100/
In this example, the number 8100 refers to the port number used by the browser to connect to
the web server. The standard port number used by web sites is 80, so this number does not need
to be included with the URL (although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can theoretically
range from 0 to 65535. Most popular network applications, though, use port numbers at the lower
end of the range (such as 80 for HTTP). Ports are similar to doors and windows of your house,
with port 80 acting as the front door. If these are not open you could not enter the house. This is
the same case with ports on a network. If the ports for a specific IP address are not open then you
could not gain access to that IP address.
Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can
refer to Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router. The term port is
also used to refer to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel,
and USB ports.
Another analogy would be: if a WAN IP address is similar to the phone number identify a site, IP
ports are similar to telephone extensions, in that they allow communication with specific devices
within a site that all share the same external (WAN) IP address. A router is a device which allows
multiple computers and other IP enabled equipment to share that single WAN IP address. It
functions like a “switchboard operator” – opening ports creates an association between those port
numbers and the LAN IP address of specific equipment on the LAN behind the router. When the
router sees a ‘call’ for a specific ‘extension’ (port), it directs that data stream to the (LAN IP
address of the) equipment associated with that ‘extension’ (port).
173
EMV401 / 801 / 1601 Hybrid Mobile DVR
Pre-Installation
Before beginning the installation, please answer the following questions:

Do you have Hi-speed Internet?
______________
There are many types of high speed Internet available. The most common ones are T1, Cable,
and DSL (in order of speed). The mobile DVR is not compatible with a dial-up connection.
Note: EverFocus suggests having a minimum upload speed of 256KBps. This can be addressed
by your Internet Service Provider.

What type of modem/router do you have? _________________________
Modem/router model name/ #
The modem/router was either installed by your Internet service provider or purchased by you
to establish a connection to the Internet. A router assigns different internal IP addresses to
local computers; this allows multiple computers to access the Internet through the same
external IP address.

Do you have a static IP address? ______________
A Static IP address means you use the same IP address every time you connect to the Internet.
With a static IP address, other Internet users always know the address of your location and
can easily connect with it. This makes it much simpler to host a website, email server, or other
type of server connection. Everfocus suggests using a static IP address. If this is not available,
you will need to use a dynamic IP address. This is explained below.

Do you have a dynamic IP address?
______________
A Dynamic IP address means your IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet.
We recommend asking your Internet service provider for a Static IP address. If this is not a
possibility, you may use the DDNS feature of the mobile DVR. DDNS stands for Dynamic
Domain Name Server, a service that provides a central database where IP information can be
stored and retrieved. It allows those using a dynamic IP address to be registered centrally so
users can connect to it by name. See Chapter 7 for details on using EverFocus DDNS.
174
EMV401 / 801 / 1601 Hybrid Mobile DVR

What type of mobile DVR are you installing? ______________
The default ports are
ECOR264: 80
Paragon: 80
ECOR: 80, 1600
EDR/Emobile DVR: 80, 1600, and 37260 – 37263
EMV: 80
If the ports were changed in the Network Setup, use those port numbers.
Pre-Installation
EverFocus’ mobile DVR can operate using one of three types of networking connections.
Simple One to One Connection: A simple one to one connection is the simplest type of network
connection. It uses a cross-over cable to make a direct connection from one computer to another
(or in this case a computer to a mobile DVR).
Direct High Speed Modem Connection: A direct modem connection uses a standard network cable
to connect the modem directly to a computer (or in this case a modem to the mobile DVR). This
type of connection only covers single-port modems. For a combination modem/router, use the
setup described below.
Router or LAN Connection – A local area network connection requires either a router or a preexisting LAN connection. This is the most common type of connection. A router allows multiple
computers and mobile DVR’s to access each other as well as the Internet. It assigns different
internal IP addresses to the computers.

Appendix
I
Appendix I: Auto HDD Retry Mechanism
The eZ.HD DVR/MDVR features Auto HDD Retry mechanism, which is designed to automatically
reboot to detect the installed HDDs when encounter HDD fail error.
Note: The Auto HDD Retry mechanism will only activate when all of the HDDs installed in the
DVR/MDVR are failed simultaneously. For example, if your DVR/MDVR installed one HDD,
when one HDD fails, the Auto HDD Retry mechanism activates; if your DVR/MDVR installed
three HDDs, when all of the 3 HDDs fail simultaneously, the Auto HDD Retry mechanism
activates.
When a HDD fail error occurs, a HDD Failure icon
will be displayed at the bottom of the
monitor and a “HDD Failed. Please check HDD(s) and SATA/power cables.” message will pop-up.
Owing to the Auto HDD Retry Mechanism, the DVR will then automatically reboot to detect the
installed HDDs. If there is no HDD detected, the DVR will start rebooting to detect the HDDs again
and again up to 3 times. During the rebooting process, a “HDD Failed. Rebooting…” message will
be displayed. Once the HDDs have been detected, the recording function will automatically
resume.
Disk Error
Message
HDD failed. Please check HDD(s)
and SATA/power cables.
HDD Failed. Rebooting…
OK
Note that the DVR/MDVR will automatically reboot to detect HDDs up to 3 times. If the Auto HDD
Retry process exceeds 3 times and the DVR still cannot detect HDDs, an “Auto HDD Retry exceeds
3 times.” message will pop-up and a continuous beep sound will be played for notification. It’s
recommended to check the SATA and power cables connected to the HDDs; or replace new HDDs
if necessary.
Disk Error
Auto HDD Retry exceeds 3
times.
