You can configure the network settings on this page.
4.4.1
General
This page allows you to configure network parameters, such as DHCP and PPPoE.
4.4.1.1 General
The DHCP setting lets the system use an automatically assigned (dynamic) IP address. This
address can change under certain circumstances, for instance, when the DVR’s network
switch/hub has to be rebooted. DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP
configuration for the network connection.
DHCP: Check the box to enable the DHCP function. The router will automatically assign all
the below IP parameters to the DVR.
IP Address: The IP address of the DVR. The IP address consists of four groups of numbers,
separated by periods. For example, “192.168.001.100”.
Subnet Mask: Subnet mask is a network parameter which defines a range of IP addresses
that can be used on a network. The subnet address also consists of four groups of numbers,
separated by periods. For example, “255.255.000.000”.
Gateway: This address allows the DVR to access the Internet. The format of the Gateway
address is the same as the IP Address. For example, “192.168.001.001”.
DNS: DNS1 is the primary DNS server and DNS2 is a backup DNS server. Usually, it’s enough
to just enter the DNS1 server address.
Default: Click to apply the default setting.

On this page, you can configure the port settings or enable/disable the UPnP or P2P function.
Web Port: The Web port can be used to remotely login the DVR (e.g. using the Web Client).
If the default port 80 is already taken by other applications, please change it.
Client Port: The Client port can be used to send information through (e.g. using the mobile
app). If the default port 9000 is already taken by other applications, please change it.
RTSP Port: The RTSP port allows the DVR to transmit real-time streaming to other devices
(e.g. using a streaming media player).
UPnP: If you want to remotely login the DVR using Web Client, you need to enable the UPnP
function and also enable the Port Forwarding function on your router.
Note:
1. For the UPnP function to work, an UPnP-enabled router is required.
2. If your router does not support UPnP, ensure the Port Forwarding function is manually
enabled on your router.
P2P Switch: Check the box to enable the P2P function. If P2P function is enabled, a QR code
will be displayed on the System Info page. You can scan the QR code with EverFocus

DDNS
You can configure the DDNS setting on this page. 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 DVR.
DDNS assigns a domain name (URL) to the 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 DVR will automatically update the information to the DDNS to ensure it is always
available for remote access.
Note that before enabling the following DDNS function, user should have applied for a host
name from the DDS service provider’s website.
DDNS: Check the box to enable the DDNS function.
Server: Select a DDNS service provider from the drop-down list. Note that before enabling the

The DHCP setting lets the system use an automatically assigned (dynamic) IP address. This
address can change under certain circumstances, for instance, when the DVR’s network
switch/hub has to be rebooted. DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP
configuration for the network connection.
DHCP: Switch the button to the right to enable DHCP function. The router will automatically
assign all the below IP parameters to the DVR.
IP Address: The IP address of the DVR. The IP address consists of four groups of numbers,
separated by periods. For example, “192.168.001.100”.
Subnet Mask: Subnet mask is a network parameter which defines a range of IP addresses
that can be used on a network. The subnet address also consists of four groups of numbers,
separated by periods. For example, “255.255.000.000”.
Gateway: This address allows the DVR to access the Internet. The format of the Gateway
address is the same as the IP Address. For example, “192.168.001.001”.
DNS: DNS1 is the primary DNS server and DNS2 is a backup DNS server. Usually, it’s enough
to just enter the DNS1 server address.

7. Troubleshooting
If you have problems with the system, run through the following checklist to see if you can solve
the problem.
1. Q: What can I do if the system does not detect the HDD?
A: Check if the power supply system is properly connected and power cord and power cables are
securely connected, and if something wrong with the HDD interface. Or you may check if your
HDD is supported by referring to the specifications or descriptions.
2. Q: I have changed the password but forget the new password, how can I access the system?
A: If you forget system password, please consult with our technical personnel. We strongly suggest
user to set password easy to be remembered and relatively safe. If you have safety requirement,
please do not set too simple password, such as 000000.
3. Q: We see abnormal video signal or even no video signal by connecting the DVR and camera
together. Power supply for both devices is OK. What is wrong?
A: Check network cable at DVR side to see if the cable is firmly connected and if it is worn out and
needs to be replaced.
4. Q: How to prevent DVR from being influenced by heat?
A: The DVR needs to dissipate heat while it is running. Please place the DVR in a place with good
air circulation and away from heat sources to ensure stability and life of the DVR.
5. Q: The remote control doesn’t work while the monitor screen is OK and panel keys are
functional. Why?
A: Operate again by aiming the remote control at the IR receiver on front panel. If it still doesn’t
work, please check if the batteries in the remote control are running out of power. If not, check if
the remote control is broken.
6. Q: I want to take out HDD from my PC and install it in DVR. Can it work?
A: All HDDs supported by the system can be used. But remember, once DVR runs, the data on your
HDD will be formatted.
7. Q: Can I playback while recording?
A: Yes. The system supports the function of playing while recording.
217
H.265 VANGUARD 4x2H / 8x4H / 16x8H
8. Q: Can I clear some records on HDD of DVR?
A: In consideration of the file security, you may not clear part of records. If you want to remove all
the records, you can format HDD.
9. Q: Why can’t I log in DVR client?
A: Please check if the network connection settings are correct and RJ-45 port is with good contact.
And check if your account and password are correctly input.
10. Q: Why can’t I find any records during playback?
A: Please check if the data line connection for HDD is OK and system time is properly adjusted. Try
a few times and restart. If it still doesn’t work, check if the HDD is broken.
11. Q: Why DVR cannot control PTZ?
A: Please check if:
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)
f)
PTZ in the front side is malfunctioned.
Setting, connection and installation of PTZ decoder are not correct.
PTZ setting of DVR is not correct.
Protocol of PTZ decoder does not match the DVR’s.
Address of PTZ decoder does not match the DVR’s.
If many decoders are connected, the farthest side of AB line of PTZ decoder should be added
120Ω resistance to realize reflection suppression and impedance matching. Otherwise, PTZ
control will be unstable.
12. Q: Why doesn’t dynamic detection work?
A: Please check if the motion detection alarm setting at IP camera side is correct and if the
sensitivity is set too low.
13. Q: Why doesn’t alarm work?
A: Please check if the alarm setting, alarm connection and alarm input signals are correct.
14. Q: Why does buzzer keep alarming?
A: Please check the alarm setting, check if motion detection function is enabled and object motion
is detected all the time and if I/O alarm is set as Always Off. Besides, refer to corresponding HDD
alarm setting.
15. Q: Why can’t I stop recording by pressing “STOP” button or click “Stop Recording” in context
menu?
A: Pressing Stop button can only stop manual record. If you want to stop Scheduled recording in
certain time quantum, please change the setting to No Record. To stop Startup recording, please
change record mode to scheduled recording or manual recording. Then you may stop recording by
the prescribed methods
