2.1 User Interface
Figure 2-1 Analyze network environment
The Installation Wizard 2 had distributed the network type into 6 groups, such as
Private fixed IP, Private DHCP, PPPoE, Public fixed IP, Public DHCP and No
2-4
Connection to Internet. Once you run the Installation Wizard 2, it will do some
analysis toward your network environment like Figure 2-1. Then, the dialog window
will display your network type after finished the detection. For example, if there is a
DHCP server on your LAN, using DHCP function to set up the device may easier
than the other option.
Please click on the “Next” button to continue the program. After a short searching
time, you will see the user interface as shown in Figure 2-2. “Manual Setup” button,
a “Refresh Devices” button and an arrow button on the left panel of your user
interface. When you click on the arrow button, you will see more advanced
functional buttons: “Access Information”, “Firmware Upgrade”, “Restore
Default” and “About IW2”(Figure 2-3). You can select your device by
double-clicking it in the device list. The left four buttons (“Manual Setup”,
“Access Information”, “Firmware Upgrade”, and “Restore Default”) won’t be
enabled until you select at least one device.

The “Hostname” is used for the homepage title of main page and is displayed as the
title in the video window of the main page. The maximum string length is 40
characters or 20 characters in double-byte-character-systems like Chinese or Japanese.
But for some models supported Unicode, the maximum string length depends on the
characters you input, and it may less than 20 characters.
2.2.1.1.2
Change root password
To change the administrator’s password, type the new password in both “Password”
and “Confirm Password” text boxes identically. What is typed will be displayed as
asterisks for security purposes. The maximum password depends on the server you
connected.
2.2.1.1.3
Adjust date and time
Figure 2-9 Date/Time setup
There are three ways to adjust system date and time (Figure 2-9):
1.
"Synchronize with computer time": The easiest way is to make device
synchronized with your computer time.
2.
“Set date and time manually”: Set the date and time manually by entering
new values. Notice the format in the related field while typing.
3.
“Synchronize to network time server automatically”: Make device
automatically synchronize with timeservers over the Internet every hour.
If you want to keep the current date and time, please choose “Keep current date
and time”.

2.2.2 Network Setting
The Installation Wizard 2 can help you to setup the network connection with LAN or
PPPoE. After you clicked on the “Next” button on the System page, the Installation
Wizard 2 would lead you to the PPPoE setting page(Figure 2-10). If you want to
connect your server to Internet via PPPoE, please click on “Yes” to start the PPPoE
setting process, or click on “No” to invoke the LAN setting.

If you click on “Yes” in the “Network Type” dialog window, you will be led to the
PPPoE setting page. In this page, you can input the “PPPoE username” and
“PPPoE password” provided by your ISP, and then the server will be set to PPPoE
mode rather than LAN mode when the setup is completed. If you don’t know the
account information, please contact your ISP. After inputting the account
information, please click on the “Next” button to continue your next step.

2.2.2.1.2
LAN Setting
If you click on “No” in the “Network Type” dialog window, you will be led to the
Network setting page. In this page, you can change the server’s IP address, subnet
mask, default gateway, primary DNS server, secondary DNS and DHCP server.
Please refer to Figure 2-12.
Figure 2-12 Network Setting for LAN
You could set up the network with DHCP or fixed IP:
1. DHCP: Check the "Get IP by DHCP Server automatically" will force the
device to renew its IP address whenever it reboots, and the related network
configuration is provided by the DHCP server.
2. Fixed IP: If you want the device to use a fixed IP, please uncheck the "Get IP by
DHCP Server automatically" checkbox and assign a valid IP address, subnet
mask, default gateway and DNS server for the device.
2-15
2.2.3 Ports Setting
If your device is located behind the router (such as private fixed IP, private DHCP)
and you want to access it through the LAN, your router must be configured first. The
ports setting page (Figure 2-13) will appear after you click on the “Next” button of
Network Setting page. The UPnP technology will configure your router
automatically, but if your router doesn’t support UPnP, you need to configure the
port numbers manually. The Installation Wizard 2 will detect whether your router
support UPnP or not. If your router support UPnP, Installation wizard 2 will choose
the “UPnP port forwarding” for you, otherwise it will choose the “Manual” mode
and you have to inspect those port numbers and make the port mapping on your
router manually.
Figure 2-13 UPnP Port Forwarding setting
2-16
2.2.4 DDNS Setting
Figure 2-14 DDNS Setting
The DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) is a method of keeping a domain
name mapping to a dynamic public IP address. In many cable/DSL connections, a
dynamic public IP address is assigned for every connecting request. After you setup
your DDNS service, and then the device would automatically update your connect
information if the public IP address had been changed.
You have to enter the “Host name”, “E-Mail address”, “Key” and “Confirm key”
to initiate the DDNS. The “Host name” should be 1~64 character(s), and the
“E-Mail address” will receive some DDNS information, please input your e-mail
address carefully.
2-17
If you have a fixed public IP, or you don’t plan to access the camera on LAN, you
may unchecked the “Enable DDNS” to disable the DDNS function.
If you forgot your DDNS key (password), you could input the Hostname and E-mail
address first, and then click on the “Forget Key” button. The key will be sent to your
e-mail box by the DDNS provider automatically.
If the hostname haven’t been registered before, you should click on the “Register
DDNS” to register the hostname. If you didn’t register the DDNS (now and before),
it might not work properly.
The DDNS provider usually has a minimal time interval of each registration, for
Safe100.net, it is about 10 minutes.
If you want to use another DDNS rather than safe100.net, you can click on the
“Advanced Information” to change the DDNS provider. There are two service
providers in the advanced setting, one is saf100.net and another is Custom DDNS
server. If you choose the Custom DDNS server, you have to enter the Server address
and the DDNS domain name, and you may refer to Figure 2-15.

After finished the DDNS setting and click on the Next button. If your device
supports mobile viewer and you want to access the device by mobile phone, you can
enable the “Mobile Access” (Figure 2-16) by clicking on the Yes button. The
Installation Wizard 2 will do some setting for mobile viewing toward the device:
1. Video: The video codec will be set to MPEG-4, and the resolution will be set to
176x144 pixels.

Access from Home: If you access the server from home, you could use the
domain name (or IP address) and port (if the http port is not 80) to connect the
server.
2.
Access from Internet: If you access the server from Internet, or you want to
share the server with your family or friends, you should use this IP Address (or
domain name) and port. If the server is behind the router, it will check whether
the UPnP or port mapping is enabled. If the UPnP and port mapping is failed, it
will show a “Warning Icon” after the link. If the “Warning Icon” appears after
the link, the server won’t be able to access from Internet.
3.
Access from Quicktime: If your server supports the RTSP, A link will be
displayed for you to access from QuickTime or other devices supported RTSP
(such as 3GPP Mobile Phone). You can connect to the server via this link.
