Setting Network Camera Environment

Items needed for network camera monitoring system

● Administrator's personal computer

The personal computer that is given all authorities for setting, operating, monitoring and other functions with the network camera is called the

"administrator's personal computer" in this manual.

* The terminal equipment only for viewing monitored images is called the

"user's personal computer" in this manual. More than one user's personal computer can view monitored images of one network camera. User's personal computers can view monitored images of a maximum nine cameras.

Recommended personal computer operating conditions

・ Windows

2000 or XP as OS

・ Internet Explorer Ver 6.0 or later

・ CPU: Intel


III 800MHz or higher

・ Memory: 256MB or more

● Network camera (TOSHIBA network camera IK-WB21A)

・ Please purchase the required and appropriate number of cameras corresponding to the desired camera installation locations.

● Connection equipment such as a hub and router suiting the network system environment and LAN cable

・ The LAN cable type differs depending on the connection method. For further information, see "Connection Configuration" on page 14.

● Camera search application "Camera Finder"

・ Install this application from the CD-ROM supplied as an accessory.

(Double-click "Setup.exe" in the CD-ROM and install the application in accordance with the instructions in the screen)

Connecting the Camera and Personal Computer by Network

IP Address

To connect to the network, the administrator needs to set the IP address of the network camera.

There are two options to set the IP address.

・ Obtaining an IP address automatically from the DHCP server

・ Entering an IP address manually

● Obtaining an IP address automatically from the DHCP server

Your camera is set to get data automatically from the DHCP server

(DHCP ON/OFF is set to ON in "Network/Basic Settings") by default. If your network is using a DHCP server, you do not need to change the IP address of the camera.

● Entering the IP address manually.

・ Manually enter the IP address when the DHCP server is not used or when the DHCP server is not utilized even when connected.

・ The IP address of the network camera is sometimes updated or changed from time to time when the DHCP server is used. For this reason, the network camera sometimes cannot be connected due to an IP address change. (if the network camera is accessed using the previously set IP address.)

To enable accessing the network camera in this case, a fixed IP address through needs to be set to the network camera. (Set an IP address through manual input) Please also read the instruction manauls for the network system equipment(router,hub and modem) carefully.

・ When entering the IP address manually, set DHCP ON/OFF to OFF in

"Network Basic Setting" on page 86 in Advanced User's Manual in

CD-ROM and enter the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS and secondary DNS.



Connecting the Camera and Personal Computer by Network (Cont.)

Connection Configuration

Two configurations are available for connection of network cameras.

・Crossover connection

・Connection via a hub, switch, or router

You do not need to assign an IP address to a hub.

The IP address of your camera after purchasing from the store is automatically set to in case DHCP is not used. Set the IP address of your personal computer in the same subnet. (The network segment must be the same segment when directly connecting using a cross cable or connecting through the hub)

When connecting more than one camera, connect each camera using IP

Address and change the IP addresses of the second and subsequent cameras to other IP addresses, such as

You can also use the LAN port of your broadband router.

 However, when using the broadband router, if the DHCP server function is set to "ON", turn on the power after connecting the camera with the router.

The camera gets the IP address from the router's DHCP server and it may not be

 It is also recommended to set the computer's IP address from the router's

DHCP server.
