Configuration
3.1 Network Connection Types
There are many different ways that you can connect the camera to your network, depending on your
applications requirements. You should always set the camera’s network settings according to your network
configurations. The following diagrams depict some typical applications with guidelines on network settings.
For more information on network settings, always consult with your network administrator or ISP as required.
Type 1— Direct Connection to a PC
Directly connect the camera to a PC using a standard Ethernet cable.
To extend the connection length, you should use a RJ-45 female/female coupler to connect two Ethernet
cables together.
RJ-45 Coupler
Caution
Tip
Note
The LAN port of the camera supports auto MDI/MDIX (Medium dependent interface crossover) so there is no
need to use cross-over cable.
To access the camera, the PC must be on the same network as the camera. The default IP address of the
camera is a static one (192.168.1.30). Configure your PC’s IP address as 192.168.1. X (where X is a number
between 2 to 254, excluding 30 and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0, and then your PC should be able to access
the camera.
Type 2: Connecting Camera(s) to LAN
To add the camera(s) to an existing LAN, just connect the camera(s) to the hub or switch on your network. If
you want to provide the camera power via the Ethernet connection, a PoE-enabled hub/switch is required.

3. Network Connection and Configuration
Caution
Tip
Note
The LAN port of the camera supports auto MDI/MDIX (Medium dependent interface crossover) so there is no
need for an uplink port or the use of a cross-over cable.
Assign an IP address to your camera following your network IP allocation policy. You can manually specify the
IP address or allocate the IP address automatically using a DHCP server, if available on your network.
Then, you can monitor and mange the camera via a web browser from a local PC.
Router/Switch/Hub
Type 3: Remote Connection via the Internet
If the network where the camera resides is connected to the Internet, you can also provide remote access to
your camera over the Internet.
Typically a broadband router has a built-in DHCP function to assign a local IP address to your camera. You can
alternatively assign a fixed IP address to the camera to prevent it from frequently changing.
Router
xDSL/Cable
Modem
To access the camera from a local PC, simply use the local IP address of the camera.
To enable remote access, you must configure your router/firewall to forward an incoming request to that fixed
local IP address of the camera. Therefore, when an external host sends a request to access your camera, the
request will first reach the router’s external IP address and then be forwarded to the local IP address of the
camera.
Port forwarding is based on the service you want to provide. For example, forward HTTP port to enable
remote web access to your camera, or RTSP port to enable access to video streams from the camera.
NCR875E(H)/NCR875PRO(H) l User Manual
11
3. Network Connection and Configuration
If your camera is configured to use a non-standard HTTP port, then you have to forward that port accordingly.
