address
checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the network to issue IP
automatically
address assignment. With this setting, the IP address is assigned
(DHCP)
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
If you do not select Obtain an IP address automatically, then you need to
mask, Gateway,
enter these network parameters by yourself.
1st DNS, 2nd DNS
server
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
42
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
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 DDNS server
DDNS: Stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server
43
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 D for
more information.

3.5.3 PPPoE
PPPoE: Stands for Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet
A standard builds on Ethernet and Point-to-Point network protocol. It allows ICA-601 / ICA-651
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.
The procedures are
• Connect to a LAN by DHCP or Fixed IP
• Access the device, enter Setting Î Network Î PPPoE as below

3.5.4 Streaming
RTSP is a streaming control protocol, and a starting point for negotiating transports such as RTP,
multicast and Unicast, and for negotiating codecs. RTSP can be considered a "remote control" for
controlling the media stream delivered by a media server. RTSP servers typically use RTP as the
protocol for the actual transport of audio/video data.
RTSP Port
Choose the RTSP port. The RTSP protocol allows a connecting client to start a
video stream. Enter the RTSP port number to use. The default value is 554.
RTP Port
Specify the range of transmission port number of video stream. The default range
is 50000 to 50999. User can specify a number between 1024 and 65535.
To use the 3GPP function, in addition to previous section, you might need more information or
configuration to make this function work.
NOTE:
To use the 3GPP function, it strongly recommends installing the Networked Device with
a public and fixed IP address without any firewall protection.
RTSP Port
Port 554 is the default for RTSP service. However, sometimes, some service
providers change this port number for some reasons. If so, user needs to change
this port accordingly.
Dialing procedure
1. Choose a verified player (PacketVideo or Realplayer currently)
2. Use the following URL to access: rtsp://host/mpeg4/media.3gp
Where host is the host name or IP address of the camera.
Compatible 3G mobile phone

device work properly again.

Appendix B: 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-601 / ICA-651 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-601 / ICA-651, 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-601 / ICA-651.
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-601 / ICA-651, also
can utilize the PING command but you must disconnect the ICA-601 / ICA-651 from the
network first.

Appendix C: Bandwidth and Video Size
Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the ICA-601 / ICA-651 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-601 / ICA-651.
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-601 / ICA-651 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 D: 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”.
82
(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
83
(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
84
(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”.
(9). Click the “ Dynamic DNS ”.
(10). Click the “Create Hosts”.
85
(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.
