(1-4, 1-8, 1-16) IP address or URL: this will be the address your DVR uses for network connection. TCP Port: This is the TCP/IP/Mobile port found on your unit.

SETTING UP THE IPHONE APP FOR THE VMAX ™ SERIES Additional Notes: Some models request different information in the ports. For example, the 960 Core only has one port number. If you set the model to 960 Core it will grey out the web port. Another example is the Classic Vmax uses the “mobile” port, not the “TCP port” as the app calls for. If any of the information is incorrect when it is first set up, you may need to delete the site and start over. As with the Android app, you will usually need two sites for a local and remote connection. Make sure that when entering the channel, you do include the max amount of channels your unit can hold. For example; if you have an 8 channel unit but are only using 5 channels, you might be tempted to put 1-5. However, if you add three cameras later, it will still only show channels 1-5. It is also good to make sure you do not set the channel as “4”,”8”, or “16”. This will only display the single channel you have put.
