Stream Options: You can select which video stream profile to use.
Protocol Options: There are 4 protocols for you to choose for the video
streaming.
UDP Protocol: This is recommended because it is an ideal protocol
for transmitting real-time video data, which can
tolerate some lost packets.
UDP Unicast: Will stream to a single computer.
UDP Multicast Will stream to multiple computers using multicast.
TCP: Provides higher quality video streaming than UDP
does. It provides error correction and guarantees
packet to be delivered to client. However, transmission
speed will be reduced.
HTTP Protocol: Offers the highest image and video quality. However,
packet losses will diminish image quality when
bandwidth becomes restricted. If the network is
protected by a firewall and it opens HTTP port
(80) only, HTTP protocol must be selected. In UDP
connections will not be available to remote users if
all four ports have not been forwarded (as shown on
page 37). Only the HTTP port must be forwarded for
remote users to make an HTTP connection (video only).
Record Options: Allows the user to specify a destination folder and prefix filename for the recorded video.

UPnPTM networking technology provides automatic IP configuration and
dynamic discovery of devices added to a network. Services and capabilities
offered by networked devices, such as printing and file sharing, are
available among each other without bothersome network configuration.
In the case of Network Cameras, you will see Network Camera shortcuts
at My Network Places.
D-Link DCS-6110 User Manual

Section 3 - Configuration
Enabling UPnP port forwarding allows the Network Camera to open a secondary HTTP port on the router, not the
HTTP port, meaning that you have to add the secondary HTTP port number behind the Network Camera’s public
address in order to access the Network Camera from the Internet. For example, when the HTTP port is set to 80 and
the secondary HTTP port is set to 8080, refer to the list below for the Network Camera’s IP address.
From the Internet
In a local area network
http://203.67.124.123:8080
http://192.168.4.160 or
http://192.168.4.160:8080
Enable UPnP Port Enables the camera to add the port forwarding entry into the router automatically when this option is enabled.
Forwarding:
PPPoE Settings: Enable this setting if your ISP (DSL service) is using PPPoE. You may already have both Username and Password given
by your ISP, or you may check with your ISP. The Connect Status will be determined automatically by the system.
HTTP: You may configure two HTTP ports for your camera. HTTP ports allow you to connect to the camera via a standard
web browser. These ports can be set to a number other than the default TCP ports 80 and 8080. A corresponding
port must be opened on the router. For example, if the port is changed to 1010, users must type in the web browser
“http://192.168.0.100:1010” instead of “http://192.168.0.100”.
Authentication: Authentication: Choose either Basic where the password is not encrypted, or Digest where the password is encrypted
during the transmission to the web server. If you select Digest, you must close and then re-open your web browser.
Basic authentication: When selected, the password is sent in plain text format; there can be potential risks of being
intercepted.
Digest authentication: When selected, user credentials are encrypted in MD5 algorithm and thus provide better protection
against unauthorized accesses.
HTTP Port: The default value is 80.
D-Link DCS-6110 User Manual

Section 3 - Configuration
Secondary HTTP The default value is 8080.
Port: After you have enabled the Authentication, you will need to configure and use the access name to access your video file. For
example, http://camera ip/video.mjpg (video.mjpg is the Access name, you can modify it here)
Access name for The default name is video.mjpg.
stream1:
Access name for The default name is video2.mjpg.
stream2:
Access name for stream 1 / Access name for stream 2 : The access name is used to differentiate the streaming source.
When using Mozilla Firefox or Netscape to access the Network Camera, and the video mode is set to JPEG, users will
receive continuous JPEG pictures. This technology, known as "server push", allows the Network Camera to feed live
pictures to Mozilla Firefox and Netscape.
Use http://<ip address>:<http port>/<access name for stream1 or stream2> to make connection.
For example, when the access name for stream 1 is set to video.mjpg:
1 : Launch Mozilla Firefox or Netscape.
2 : Type the URL command in the address field. Press Enter.
3 : The JPEG images will be displayed in your web browser.
FTP Port: Default port is 21. If you want to change the port number, you will need to specify the port when connecting to the FTP server.
For example FTP://68.5.1.81:60 (if you use port 60 for your FTP server)
RTSP Streaming: This setting enables you to connect to a camera by using streaming mobile device(s), such as a mobile phone or PDA.
Authentication: Choose either Basic where the password is not encrypted, or Digest where the password is encrypted during the transmission
to the web server. After you have enabled the Authentication, you will need to configure and use the access name to access
your video file. RTSP://camera ip/live.sdp (live.sdp is the default access name, you can modify it here)

RTSP port: The port number that you use for RSTP streaming, the default port number is 554. RTP (Real Time Protocol) Port is used
to streaming audio and video while RTCP (Real Time Control Protocol) port is used to monitor QoS of RTP stream.
Note: RTP video port and RTP audio port must be an “even” number. The numbers of RTCP video port and RTCP audio
port must equal to the numbers of RTP video port and RTP audio port, plus one repetitively
RTP port for video: Default port number is 5556.
RTCP port for video: Default port number is 5557.
Multicast group address: You may choose to enable multicast for your camera audio and video streaming so that your cameras (sources) and the
receivers (clients) can establish the connection to send and receive contents.
An IP Multicast group address is used to send and receive content. Sources use this group address as the destination
address while sending their data packets. Receivers use this group address to inform the network that they are interested
in receiving packets sent to that group.
Multicast video port: For example, if some content is associated with group 239.1.1.1, the source will send data packets destined to 239.1.1.1.
Receivers for that content will inform the network that they are interested in receiving data packets sent to the group
239.1.1.1. The receiver “joins” 239.1.1.1. The Multicast address ranges from 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255, or, equivalently,
224.0.0.0/4
Default port number is 5560, or please choose between 1024 and 65534.

Multicast RTCP video port: Default port number is 5561, or please choose between 1024 and 65534.

Multicast TTL {1~255]: Set a Time to Live(TTL) value for multicast packet, please choose between 1 and 255.
Unicast video transmission delivers a stream through point-to-point transmission; multicast, on the other hand, sends a stream to the
multicast group address and allows multiple clients to acquire the stream by requesting a copy from the Multicast group address.
The five ports can be changed between 1025 and 65535. The multicast RTP port must be an even number and the multicast RTCP port is
multicast RTP port number plus one, and thus always be odd. When the multicast RTP port changes, the multicast RTCP port will change
accordingly.

There are two parameters for setting the motion detection: Sensitivity and Percentage.
In the illustration above, frame A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel differences between the two frames
are detected and highlighted in gray (frame C), and will be compared with the sensitivity setting. Sensitivity is a value
that expresses the sensitivity to moving objects. Higher sensitivity settings are expected to sense a slight movement
while smaller sensitivity settings tend to neglect it. When the sensitivity is set to 70%, the Network Camera defines the
pixels in the purple areas as “alerted pixels” (frame D). Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted
pixels” to all pixels in the motion detection window. In this case, 50% of pixels are identified as “alerted pixels”. When
the percentage is set to 30%, the motions are judged to exceed the defined threshold; therefore, the motion window
will be outlined in red.
For applications that require higher security management, it is suggested to set higher sensitivity settings and smaller
percentage values.

Frequently Asked Questions
This chapter provides solutions to problems that may occur during the installation and operation of the DCS-6110.
Read the following descriptions if you are having any problems.
Note: The examples below are illustrated in Windows® XP. If you have a different operating system, the screenshots
on your computer will look similar to the following examples.
Fixed Dome Network Camera Features
1. What is a Fixed Dome Network Camera?
The Fixed Dome Network Camera is a stand-alone system connecting directly to an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet network.
The Fixed Dome Network Camera differs from a conventional PC Camera because it has an integrated system with
built-in CPU and web-based solutions, providing a low cost solution that can transmit high quality video images for
monitoring. The Fixed Dome Network Camera can be remotely managed, accessed and controlled from any PC/
Notebook over an Intranet or Internet using a web browser.
2. What is the maximum number of users that can access DCS-6110 simultaneously?
The maximum number of users that can log onto the Fixed Dome Network Camera at the same time is 10. Please
keep in mind the overall performance of the transmission speed will be reduced if many users have logged on to the
camera simultaneously.
There is no limited user when multicast-enabled router is used. This helps to reduce the network transmission load.
Note that to utilize this feature; the Network Camera must be configured to enable multicast streaming at the same
time. For more information, see RTSP Streaming on page 41.
3. What algorithm is used to compress the digital image?
The Fixed Dome Network Camera utilizes MPEG-4 simple profile or MJPEG Mode image compression technology
providing high quality images. MJPEG is a standard for image compression and it can be applied to various web
browsers and application software without installing any extra software

4. Can I capture still images from the Fixed Dome Network Camera?
Yes you can capture still images using the snapshot function.
Fixed Dome Network Camera Installation
1. Can the Network Camera be used outdoors?
The Fixed Dome Network Camera is not weatherproof. It needs to be equipped with a weatherproof case for outdoor
use but it is not recommended.
2. When physically connecting the Fixed Dome Network Camera to a network, what network cabling is required?
The Fixed Dome Network Camera uses Category 5 UTP cable allowing 10 Base-T and 100 Base-T networking
solutions.
3. Can the Fixed Dome Network Camera be setup as a PC-cam on a computer?
No, the Fixed Dome Network Camera is used only on an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet network. The D-Link DSB-C110,
DSB-C310, can be used as a PC Camera (Webcam).
4. Can the Fixed Dome Network Camera be connected to the network if it consists only of private IP addresses?
The Fixed Dome Network Camera can be connected to a LAN with private IP addresses.
5. Can the Fixed Dome Network Camera be installed and work if a firewall exists on the network?
If a firewall exists on the network, port 80 is open for ordinary data communication. The DCS-6110 uses port 5002 for
streaming audio and port 5003 for streaming video. These ports (or the ports you have specified in the Setup Tab in
the Configuration screen) need to be opened on the firewall.

6. Why am I unable to access the Fixed Dome Network Camera from a web browser?
If a router or firewall is used on the network, the correct ports for the DCS-6110 may not be configured on the router or
firewall. To correct the problem, you need to determine if the DCS-6110 is behind a router or firewall and if the router
or firewall is properly configured for the ports the DCS-6110 is using. Refer to Page 28 for help in opening the correct
ports on a router or firewall for use with the DCS-6110. Other possible problems might be due to the network cable.
Try replacing your network cable. Test the network interface of the product by connecting a local computer to the unit,
utilizing a Ethernet crossover cable. If the problem is not solved, the Fixed Dome Network Camera might be faulty.
7. Why does the Fixed Dome Network Camera work locally but not externally?
• This might be caused by network firewall protection. The setting of the firewall may need to be changed in order for
the Fixed Dome Network Camera to be accessible outside of your local LAN. Check with the Network Administrator
for your network.
• Make sure that your Fixed Dome Network Camera isn’t conflicting with any Web server you may have running on
your network.
• The default router setting might be a possible reason. Check that the configuration of the router settings allows
the Fixed Dome Network Camera to be accessed outside of your local LAN.
8. I connected the Fixed Dome Network Camera directly to a computer with a cross-over Ethernet cable and received a
Windows error upon running the installation Wizard?
• This Windows error will occur if the Fixed Dome Network Camera is connected to a computer that is not properly
configured with a valid IP address. Turn off DHCP from the Network Settings in Windows and configure the computer
with a valid IP address or connect the camera to a router with DHCP enabled.
• This error can also occur if the Installation Wizard icon is clicked on more than once from the setup wizard.
9. Grainy images occur. How can I solve the problem?
The video images might be grainy if the Fixed Dome Network Camera is used in a very low light environment. To solve
this issue you need more lighting.

10. The images appear to be of poor quality, how can I improve the image quality?
• Make sure that your computer’s display properties are set above 256 colors. Using 16 or 256 colors on your
computer will produce dithering artifacts in the image, making the image appear to be of poor quality.
• The configuration on the Fixed Dome Network Camera image display is incorrect. Through the Setup > Image
Setup section of the Web management you need to adjust the image related parameters such as brightness, white
balance and power line frequency for fluorescent light.

Check your IP address
After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from a
DHCP server (i.e. wireless router) automatically. To verify your IP address, please follow the steps below.
Click on Start > Run. In the run box type cmd and click OK.
At the prompt, type ipconfig and press Enter.
This will display the IP address, subnet mask, and
the default gateway of your adapter.
If the address is 0.0.0.0, check your adapter
installation, security settings, and the settings
on your access point. Some firewall software
programs may block a DHCP request on newly
installed adapters.
If you are connecting to a wireless network at a hotspot (e.g. hotel, coffee shop, airport), please contact an employee
or administrator to verify their wireless network settings.

Statically Assign an IP address
If you are not using a DHCP capable gateway/access point, or you need to assign a static IP address, please follow
the steps below:
Step 1
Windows® XP - Click on Start > Control Panel > Network Connections.
Windows® 2000 - From the desktop, right-click My Network Places > Properties.
Step 2
Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your D-Link network adapter and select Properties.
Step 3
Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.
Step 4
Click Use the following IP address and enter an IP address that is on the same subnet as your network or the LAN IP
address on your access point.
Example: If the network camera’s LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1, make your IP
address 192.168.0.X where X is a number between 2 and 99. Make sure that the
number you choose is not in use on the network. Set Default Gateway the same
as the LAN IP address of your access point (192.168.0.1).
Set Primary DNS the same as the LAN IP address of your access point (192.168.0.1).
The Secondary DNS is not needed or you may enter a DNS server from your
ISP.
Step 5
Click OK twice to save your settings.
