CHAP 1. INTRODUCTION
1. Overview
Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is the latest in surveillance technology that offers full digital recording, remote
surveillance access, remote device control and more. The DVR system is a computerized surveillance
system that combines all the features of a traditional videotape system by integrating a color quad processor,
motion sensors, multiplexer, pan & tilt controls, time-lapse recorder and accessories to one unit. DVR
images are stored on a Hard Disk Drive (HDD). This not only preserves the picture quality
in its original state, but also allows fast data retrieval and larger storage capacity.
Unlike time-lapse VCRs and low-end DVRs, Pentaplex DVRs allow live-view, back-up of recorded
Audio/Video, playback of recorded video footage and remote access through internet while in recording
mode simultaneously. DVRs are used in mission critical environments where security systems are on and it
would be dangerous for the security officer to turn off recording just to view recorded data.
Our new Pentaplex DVRs can meet any request from the industry and the customers with high quality and
reliability, which will satisfy all of you and bring a big smile to you.

Install the HDDs on the HDD plate and screw as left.
HDD Jumper Setting Information
Before install the Hard Disk Drives, please read the jumper setting
information on the label. If the jumper is not set properly, the system
will be disordered.
4
Make sure that the HDDs are set to “Master” or “Slave” properly
and then connect the power cable and IDE cable.
Check if HDD has no problem after HDD installation because

3. Network Connection
3.1 Using Static (Public) IP Address
You can use one of Static IP addresses, Subnet Mask and Gateway address provided by your ISP
(Internet Service Provider) for IP address, Subnet Mask and Gateway address fields in Network
Setup menu of your DVR for network connection through Net / Web Viewer. The Gateway address is
the IP address of your Modem.
BROADBAND
MODEM
3.2 Using Dynamic IP Address
You can use Router with your Dynamic IP broadband modem. In this case, you should set the
configuration of Router properly for network connection between DVR and Net / Web Viewer.
Please follow the instruction in next section to configure your Router correctly.
BROADBAND
MODEM
ROUTER
If your Broadband Modem does not support internal loop back (port forwarding)
function, and if you want to monitor DVR using a PC located in same Intranet,
you should use Direct IP instead of DDVRLS in the connection menu of Net
Viewer.
If your PC is located out of Intranet, you can use both DDVRLS and Direct IP
to connect to DVR even though your Broadband Modem has limited features.
You will know about DDVRLS and Direct IP in Chapter 5, NVR (NET VIEWER).

CHAP 2. INSTALLATION
3.3 Router Configuration
If your DVR is connected to network through Router, you should configure Router properly.
There are 3 steps as follows.
1. WAN Setting
2. DHCP Setting
3. Virtual Server Setting
Routers from D-Link, Net Gear and Linksys are quoted as examples in this manual.
3.3.1 WAN Setting
When you connect to your Router, you can find menu for Wan setting. Please confirm the WAN
setting. If you are using DSL service, you should select PPPoE, and you will see sub-menu to
type in DSL user name and password.

3.3.2 DHCP & IP address Setting
To assign DVR an unique private IP address in your intranet environment automatically, you
can enable DHCP option in the Network Setup menu of your DVR and your router. In this case,
you can skip this section. But to prevent unexpected change of DVR IP address because of
DHCP function of your router when lease time is expired, we recommend to assign DVR IP
address manually. Even in this case, you should enable DHCP server of your router for other
network equipments like computers in the same network.
Also if you have any problem with DHCP function or want to assign the private IP address by
yourself, please disable DHCP option in the Network Setup menu of your DVR and check the
Starting and Ending IP addresses used by DHCP server of the Router.
You can assign any private IP address to your DVR, if it is out of the DHCP range.
But this IP address should be same the IP address in Network Setup menu of your DVR.
See Section 3.4. ccc for right IP address, Subnet Mask and Gateway address for your
DVR network configuration.

4.3.3 Virtual Server Setting
You should register your DVR as a virtual server into Router. Please type-in the private
IP address of DVR into IP address field of Router. (e.g. 192.168.0.110)
You will see IP address of DVR by pressing Info. button of DVR.
Protocol Type is TCP, and Private/Public Port numbers should be same with the Port numbers
assigned in DVR. And you can change Port numbers in Network Setup menu to avoid the
conflict with other network servers.
Your DVR uses 2 port numbers and the default Port numbers are 9310 and 80.
9310 is for Control, Video and Audio of NetViewer and 80 is for WebViewer.
You need to register both port numbers into Router as Network servers. And please make sure
that your Router dose not block those port numbers to / from the DVR with filter and firewall
features.

Note
You should setup network configuration while installation of DVR
before using Net Viewer.
1. You should register your own network ID, Password for Dynamic IP Support to
DVR first. It is required only once for the first connection during installation of
DVR and Network Setup. If you use more than one DVR through intranet, you
should set Different Port numbers to each DVRs.
2. ID and Password are composed up to 8 letters. You should get your own
unique ID through authentication process. Then you can type in your
own Password.
3. You should use same ID and Password at Net Viewer.
4. If you want to use static IP address for DVR, please type DVR IP address into
IP address field.
Your DVR Supports both Each-Camera-Mode and Full-Screen-Mode during
network transmission. (4CH DVR supports only Each-Camera-Mode)
1. Each-Camera-Mode.
When DVR transmits videos to client PC, it sends each channels
independently. In other words, if you register Servers (Cameras) under Folder
(DVR) so each cameras sends their video separately.
For example, if you register 8 Cameras (CH1-CH8), 8 cameras sends each
videos based on their recording conditions which are set in DVR recording
setup menu. The benefit of Each-Camera-Mode is that you can handle each
channel separately. But it requires high network bandwidth.
2. Full-Screen-Mode
If you register CH9/17 as a Server (Camera) under a certain Folder (DVR),
DVR transmits full screen which is displayed on the monitor to Client PC
through CH9/17. You can enable only CH9/17 (instead of enabling all CH1~8 of
8CH, or all CH1~16 in 16CH DVR) to see all cameras. It is good to get more
frames for certain channel through network when the internet traffic is heavy.
