NETWORK
Network Setup
Configure network settings.
Network
HOST NAME – Hostname for the DVR on the network.
NETWORK TYPE – STATIC IP (User must manually define a static IP address. Contact your
network administrator for this information.)
DHCP (System gets IP address automatically from a DHCP server.)
IP ADDRESS – DHCP or Static. Contact your network administrator for this information.
CLIENT CONFIGURATION – Set up the connection ports and Max transfer speed for remote
connections.
CENTER PORT – The E-Series DVR uses the Center port and the
primary communication port to create remote connections. This port
must be the same as the port setting on the remote PC.
VIDEO PORT – The E-Series DVR uses multiple ports to create
remote connections: the remote port is user defined (default 2000),
and a secondary port is automatically assigned (default 2002). The
DVR assigns the secondary port based on the remote port, in
increments of two. (ex: if you set the remote port to 2222, then the
secondary port will be 2224). Verify that all these ports are available
when setting up Network Address Translation (NAT) or firewall.
WEB PORT – Defines the port that Internet Explorer uses to connect
over the web and view video. If this port is changed then the new port
must be defined when attempting to web connect (ex: if your DVR IP
address is 10.0.0.5 and you change the web port to 800, then you
must type http://10.0.0.5:800 in your browser).
MAX TRANSFER SPEED – Set network bandwidth. This feature is
used for slower internet connections to throttle the amount of data the
DVR sends across the network at a time.

Network Setup continued
DDNS - DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) is a service that allows a connection to an
IP address using a hostname (URL) address instead of a numeric IP address. Most Internet
Service Providers use Dynamic IP Addressing that frequently changes the public IP address
of your internet connection; this means that remote connections through RADIUS and
Remote would require frequent updates. DDNS automatically redirects traffic to your current
IP address when using the hostname address (i.e. MyE240.openeyedvr.com).
DDNS SERVER – The current DDNS server.
HOST NAME – Hostname for the DDNS server account.
ID – Username for the DDNS server account.

DIGITAL VERIFIER OVERVIEW
JPG images and AVI video files that are exported from the Digital Video Recorder are
automatically embedded with a digital signature. Digital signatures are a way to verify the
authenticity of the images to ensure that they have not been tampered with or edited in any
way. Included on the Software Installation DVD, supplied with the DVR, is the Digital
Signature Verification program. This program can be installed on any Windows XP, Windows
Vista or Windows 7 computer.
Using the Digital Verifier
1.
Open the Digital Verification program by selecting Start > Programs > OpenEye > Digital
Verifier > Digital Signature Verifier.
2.
Click the Browse button to load the JPG image.
3.
Enter the Site Code of the DVR that the image was originally extracted from. (The Site
Code is specified in the System Setup Menu)
4.
Click Verify to continue or Close to close the window without verifying.
If the image has not been
tampered with, a blue square will
appear around the image with the
message “Original image file.”
If the image has been tampered
with, a red square will appear
around the image with the
message “Entire image changed
or wrong SITE CODE.”
