Protocol. Enable this checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the network to issue IP
address assignment. With this setting, the IP address is assigned automatically. If this device
cannot get an IP address within limited tries, the device will assign a default IP address,
192.168.0.20, by itself as the default IP address.
IP address, Subnet mask, Gateway, 1st DNS, 2nd DNS server: If you do not select Obtain
an IP address automatically, then you need to enter these network parameters by yourself.
IP Address: This address is a unique numbers that identifies a computer or device on the
WAN or LAN. These numbers are usually shown in groups separated by periods, for example:
192.168.0.200
Subnet Mask: Subnets allow network traffic between hosts to be separated based on the
network's configuration. In IP networking, traffic takes the form of packets. IP subnets advance
network security and performance to some level by organizing hosts into logical groups.
Subnet masks contain four bytes and usually appear in the same "dotted decimal" data. For
example, a very common subnet mask in its binary demonstration 11111111 11111111 11111111
00000000 will usually be shown in the corresponding, more readable form as 255.255.255.0.
Gateway: A gateway is a piece of software or hardware that passes information between
networks. You'll see this term most often when you either log in to an Internet site or when
you're transient email between different servers.
Primary DNS: When you send email or position a browser to an Internet domain such as
xxxxx.com, the domain name system translates the names into IP addresses. The term refers
to two things: the conventions for naming hosts and the way the names are control across the
Internet.
Secondary DNS: The same function as DNS1. It is option not necessary
29/64
Note: need to reboot the device to take this setting effect.
HTTP Port: The device supports two HTTP ports. The first one is default port 80 and this port
is fixed. This port is very useful for Intranet usage. The second HTTP port is changeable.
Users could assign the second port number of http protocol, and the WAN users should follow
the port number to login. If the http port is not assigned as 80, users have to add the port
number in back of IP address. For example: http://192.168.0.20:80.
If multiple devices are installed on the LAN and also required to be accessed from the WAN,
then the HTTP Port can be assigned as the virtual server port mapping to support multiple
devices.

When the configuration is finish, please click “OK” to save and enable the setting.
3.5.2 Wireless (ICA-108W only)
If your device is a wireless model, you could assign the related parameters into wireless
setting. Using a wired connection ensures greater secrecy while making these settings. These
settings should always be made in the camera first and secondly in the wireless access point.
This ensures that the camera is always accessible when making changes. Note that this
function is only available for the model with WLAN capability.
“Wired (Ethernet) only” or “Auto – wired if cable connected, otherwise wireless” :
Choose wired or wireless mode. However, note that wired is priority.
Type: To select one of WLAN modes from Infrastructure or Ad-Hoc mode.
Security mode: Shows which type of security the network uses. The device supports three
30/64
security methods: None/WEP/WPA-PSK (recommended method)
SSID: The SSID is the name shared among all points in the wireless network system, must be
identical for all points.
Region: Select the correct domain for your country.
Channel: The value of channel can be selected from channel 1 to 11 for FCC domain,
channels 1 to 13 for ETSI domain and 1 to 14 for Japan domain.
WEP settings:
•
Authentication: Select Open or Shared Key System Authentication, depending on the
method used by your access point. Not all access points have this option, in which case
they probably use Open System, which is sometimes known as SSID Authentication.
•
Key length: This sets the length of the key used for the wireless encryption, 64 or 128
bit.
•
Key type: The key types available depend on the access point being used. The following
options are available:
•
‧
ASCII - In this method the string must be exactly 5 characters for 64-bit WEP and
13 characters for 128-bit WEP.
‧
HEX - In this method the string must be exactly 10 hexadecimal (0-9, A-F)
characters for 64-bit WEP and 26 hexadecimal characters for 128-bit WEP.
Key: Key value of WEP.
WPA settings:
•
Key type: The device uses a pre-shared key (PSK) for key management. The
pre-shared key can be entered either as Manual hex, as 64 hexadecimal characters, or
as a Passphrase, using 8 to 63 ASCII characters.
•
Key: Key value of WEP.
DHCP (Obtain an IP address automatically): DHCP: Stands for Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol. Enable this checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the network to issue IP
address assignment. With this setting, the IP address is assigned automatically. If this device
cannot get an IP address within limited tries, the device will assign a default IP address,
192.168.0.20, by itself as the default IP address.
IP address, Subnet mask, Gateway, 1st DNS, 2nd DNS server: If you do not select Obtain
an IP address automatically, then you need to enter these network parameters by yourself.
IP Address: This address is a unique numbers that identifies a computer or device on the
WAN or LAN. These numbers are usually shown in groups separated by periods, for example:
192.168.0.200
Subnet Mask: Subnets allow network traffic between hosts to be separated based on the
network's configuration. In IP networking, traffic takes the form of packets. IP subnets advance
network security and performance to some level by organizing hosts into logical groups.
Subnet masks contain four bytes and usually appear in the same "dotted decimal" data. For
example, a very common subnet mask in its binary demonstration 11111111 11111111 11111111
00000000 will usually be shown in the corresponding, more readable form as 255.255.255.0.
Gateway: A gateway is a piece of software or hardware that passes information between
networks. You'll see this term most often when you either log in to an Internet site or when
you're transient email between different servers.
31/64
Primary DNS: When you send email or position a browser to an Internet domain such as
xxxxx.com, the domain name system translates the names into IP addresses. The term refers
to two things: the conventions for naming hosts and the way the names are control across the
Internet.
Secondary DNS: The same function as DNS1. It is option not necessary
Note: need to reboot the device to take this setting effect.
Scan AP: Click the “Scan” button. It will pop up a new window which list is the result of a
network scan. Access points with a disabled SSID Broadcast will not appear unless the
camera is associated with it. The following information is provided:
•
Signal strength - Shows the signal strength.
•
Bit rate - Shows the bit rate in Mbit/s. This can only be shown for the access point
currently in use. Note that the bit rate shown is the current rate, and that this value may
vary over time.
Select “OK” to save and enable the setting.
Note: To enable WLAN function, user must set these related parameters correctly at first.
Then power off the Device and remove Ethernet cable from Device. Power on the Device
again and WLAN mode will be available accordingly.
3.5.3 DDNS server
DDNS: Stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server
The device supports DDNS. If your device is connected to xDSL directly, you might need this
feature. However, if your device is behind a NAT router, you will not need to enable this feature.
Because DDNS allows the device to use an easier way to remember naming format rather
than an IP address. The name of the domain is like the name of a person, and the IP address
is like his phone number. On the Internet we have IP numbers for each host (computer, server,
router, and so on), and we replace these IP numbers to easy remember names, which are
organized into the domain name. As to xDSL environment, most of the users will use dynamic
IP addresses. If users want to set up a web or a FTP server, then the Dynamic Domain Name
Server is necessary. For more DDNS configuration, please consult your dealer.
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provides you at least one IP address which you use to
connect to the Internet. The address you get may be static, meaning it never changes, or
dynamic, meaning it’s likely to change periodically. Just how often it changes, depends on your
ISP. A dynamic IP address complicates remote access since you may not know what your
current WAN IP address is when you want to access your network over the Internet. The
solution to the dynamic IP address problem comes in the form of a dynamic DNS service.
The Internet uses DNS servers to lookup domain names and translates them into IP
addresses. Domain names are just easy to remember aliases for IP addresses. A dynamic
DNS service is unique because it provides a means of updating your IP address so that your
listing will remain current when your IP address changes. There are several excellent DDNS
services available on the Internet and best of all they’re free to use. One such service you can
use is www.DynDNS.org. You’ll need to register with the service and set up the domain name
of your choice to begin using it. Please refer to the home page of the service for detailed
instructions or refer to Appendix E for more information.

A standard builds on Ethernet and Point-to-Point network protocol. It allows ICA-108/108W
connect to Internet with xDSL or cable connection, it can dial up your ISP and get a dynamic IP
address. For more PPPoE and Internet configuration, please consult your ISP.
It can directly connect to the xDSL, however, it should be setup on a LAN environment to
program the PPPoE information first, and then connect to the xDSL modem. Power on again,
then the device will dial on to the ISP connect to the WAN through the xDSL modem.

Appendix C: PING IP Address
The PING (stands for Packet Internet Groper) command is used to detect whether a specific IP
address is accessible by sending a packet to the specific address and waiting for a reply. It’s
also a very useful tool to confirm ICA-108/108W installed or if the IP address conflicts with any
other devices over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of ICA-108/108W, utilize the PING command as
follows:
z Start a DOS window.
z Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the ICA-108/108W.
The replies, as illustrated below, will provide an explanation to the problem.
If you want to detect any other devices conflicts with the IP address of ICA-108/108W, also can
utilize the PING command but you must disconnect the ICA-108/108W from the network first.

Appendix D: Bandwidth Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the ICA-108/108W depends on connection bandwidth
between client and server, video resolution, codec type, and quality setting of server. Here is a
guideline to help you roughly estimate the bandwidth requirements for your ICA-108/108W.
The required bandwidth depends on content of video source. The slow motion video will
produce smaller bit rate generally and fast motion will produce higher bit rate vice versa.
Actual results generated by the ICA-108/108W may be varying.
Image Resolution
Average range of Data Sizes
for JPEG mode
Average bit rate for MPEG4 mode
160 x 120 (QQVGA)
3 ~ 6k byte per frame
64kbps~384kbps @ 30fps
320 x 240 (QVGA)
8 ~ 20k byte per frame
128kbps~768kbps @ 30fps
640 x 480 (VGA)
20 ~ 50K byte per frame
256kbps~4096kbps @ 30fps
Note: Audio streaming also takes bandwidth around 5 kbps to 64kbps. Most
xDSL/Cable modem upload speeds may not even reach up to 128 kbps. Thus,
you may not be able to receive any video while streaming audio on a 128 kbps or
lower connection. Even though the upload speed is more than 128kbps, for
optimal video performance, disabling audio streaming will get better video
performance.

Appendix E: DDNS Application
1. Preface
If you have a Cable modem or xDSL, this is a great way to host your own Networked
Device or other TCP/IP Service. Get your own domain like www.yourname.com,
www.yourname.com.tw etc. (Note: This domain must be registered with Internic via
registration authorities such as Network Solutions, DirectNIC, Register.com etc). Your
domain name's dynamic IP address is automatically tracked by a DDNS server.
Host your own Networked Device and much more no matter what your computer's IP
address may be and even if you have dialup, DSL or cable modem internet connection
where your computer's IP address changes all the time!! DDNS service supports all top
level domain names including but not limited to .com, .net, .org, .to, .uk etc.
2. Ethernet Network Environment
Normally, DDNS service is only necessary for the users that could only obtain dynamic IP
addresses. As to the users that could obtain the static valid IP address, they do not usually
have to apply the DDNS service. Before we decide if DDNS is necessary for the users, we
have to check what kind of Ethernet network environment we have to install our Networked
Device on.
(1) Environment of Fixed Valid IP Network
If users could obtain valid IP addresses, they could save the effort to apply DDNS service.
Because the IP address in this environment is fixed, users could input the IP address or
domain name of demo site directly in the IE browser.
(2) Environment of Dynamic IP Network
If users is under an environment of dynamic IP network (Dial-up xDSL), they have to apply
a domain name in advance. Then apply DDNS service. Finally setup the necessary
information of DDNS and PPPoE of the Networked Device in order to let the outside
administrator be able to access through internet.
3. Application Steps – DDNS & Domain Name
(1). Visit the following web site: http://www.dyndns.org/
(2). Click “Account”

(3). After the columns show up at the left side, click “Create Account”.
(4). Fill the application agreement and necessary information.
a. Username
b. E-mail address and confirmation
c. Password and confirmation
d. Submit all the input information and finish creating an account

Click these two options
(5). Check your e-mail mailbox. There will be an e-mail with a title “Your DynDNS Account
Information“. Click the hyperlink address to confirm the DDNS service that you just
applied. Then DDNS you applied activated.

Click to confirm
(6). Enter the web page http://www.dyndns.org/ again. Input your username and password
that you just applied to login administration interface of DDNS server.
Input your account
(7). If the correct username and password are input, you can see the following picture at
the top-right of the login page.
(8). Click the “Services”.
62/64
(9). Click the “ Dynamic DNS ”.
(10). Click the “Create Hosts”.
(11). We could create a domain name without any charge at this step. First, we input the
host name. (No.1) Then we pick a domain that is easy to remember. Finally (No.2), click
the “Add Host” to submit the domain name information. (No.3)

4. Setup the DDNS and PPPoE of Network Device
At last, users have to enter the web page of Networked Device and setup the necessary
information of DDNS and PPPoE after the application of DDNS service. Please check the
user manual to access the DDNS and PPPoE pages. After saving the modification, restart
the device. The external users could browse the Networked Device by the input of their
domain name.
