3.5 Network Configuration
Use this menu to configure the network to connect the device and the clients.
3.5.1. Network
This section provides the menu of connecting the device through Ethernet cable.
MAC address
Display the Ethernet MAC address of the device. Note that user cannot
change it.
Obtain an IP address
automatically (DHCP)
Enable this checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the
network to issue IP address assignment. With this setting, the IP
address is assigned automatically. If this device cannot get an IP
address within limited tries, the device will assign a default IP address
for 192.168.0.20.
If you do not select “Obtain an IP address automatically”, then you
need to enter these network parameters by yourself.
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
39
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.
Obtain DNS from
DHCP
Enable this checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the
network and provide DNS service.
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
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://192.168.0.20:8080.
Therefore, the user can access the device by either
http://xx.xx.xx.xx/, or
http://xx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx/ to access the device.
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.
NOTE
When the configuration is finish, please click “OK” to save and enable
the setting.
40
3.5.2. DDNS server
Stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server
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 E 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 IP camera 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

Appendix A: Alarm I/O Connector
Some features of the IP camera can be activated by the external sensor that senses physical
changes in the area IP camera is monitoring. These changes can include intrusion detection or
certain physical change in the monitored area. For examples, the external sensor can be a door
switch or an infrared motion detector. These devices are customer provided, and are available
from dealers who carry surveillance and security products. Electrically, they must be able to
provide a momentary contact closure.
This device provides a general I/O terminal block with one digital input and one output for device
control. The pin 1 is located at the right side of terminal block from rear view. Pin 2 and 3 can be
connected to an external sensor. The input voltage will be monitored from the initial state ‘LOW’. If
the external sensor need 12VDC power, then it can connect to Pin1(50mA maximum). The Alarm
Output of pin 3 and 4 can be used to turn on or off the external device.

camera circuit. The qualified electrician should do the wring not by yourself
incorrect wiring could damage IP camera. You could receive the fatal electric
shock.
9
The external I/O is not capable of connecting directly to devices that require
large amounts of current. In some cases, a custom interface circuit (customer
provided) may have to be used. Serious damage to IP camera may result if a
device is connected to the external I/O that exceeds its electrical capability.
75
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 IP camera installed or if the IP address conflicts with any other
devices over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of IP camera, 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 IP camera.
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 IP camera, also can utilize
the PING command but you must disconnect the IP camera from the network first.
76
Appendix C: 3GPP Access
To use the 3GPP function, in addition to previous section, you might need more information or
configuration to make this function work.
Note
That to use the 3GPP function, it strongly recommends to install 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:
Please contact your dealer to get the approved list of compatible 3G phone.
Note
Besides IP camera and 3G mobile phone. You will also need to make sure the ISP and
telephone company has provided the 3GPP service to you.
77
Appendix D: Bandwidth and Video Size
Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the IP camera 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 IP camera.
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 IP camera may be varying.

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.
78
Appendix E: 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”
79
(3). After the columns show up at the left side, click “Create Account”.
(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
Check the options
80
(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
81
(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 “My Services”.
Click on the link
(9). Click the “ Add Hostname”.
(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), input you
current IP address (No.3) then click on the bottom of “Add To Cart” button to submit the
domain name information.

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.

Appendix F:
Configure Port Forwarding Manually
The device can be used with a router. If the device wants to be accessed from the WAN, its IP
address needs to be setup as fixed IP address, also the port forwarding or Virtual Server function
of router needs to be setup. This device supports UPnP traversal function. Therefore, user could
use this feature to configure port forwarding of NAT router first. However, if user needs to
configure port forwarding manually, please follow the steps as below:
Manually installing the device with a router on your network is an easy 3–step procedure as
following:
1. Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
2. Access the Router with Your Web browser
3. Open/Configure Virtual Server Ports of Your Router
1. Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
The device must be assigned a local and fixed IP Address that allows it to be recognized by the
router. Manually setup the device with a fixed IP address, for example, 192.168.0.100.
2. Access the Router with Your Web browser
The following steps generally apply to any router that you have on your network. The PLANET
WNRT-620 is used as an example to clarify the configuration process. Configure the initial settings
of the router by following the steps outlined in the router’s Quick Installation Guide.
If you have cable or DSL service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN IP
Address. ‘Dynamic’ means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time to time
depending on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP Address identifies your router on the public network
and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what your router’s WAN IP Address is, go to the
Status screen on your router and locate the WAN information for your router. As shown on the
following page the WAN IP Address will be listed. This will be the address that you will need to
type in your web browser to view your camera over the Internet. Be sure to uncheck the Reset IP
address at next boot button at the top of the screen after modifying the IP address. Failure to do
so will reset the IP address when you restart your computer.
83
Your WAN IP Address will be listed here.
3. Open/set Virtual Server Ports to enable remote image viewing
The firewall security features built into the router and most routers prevent users from accessing
the video from the device over the Internet. The router connects to the Internet over a series of
numbered ports. The ports normally used by the device are blocked from access over the Internet.
Therefore, these ports need to be made accessible over the Internet. This is accomplished using
the Virtual Server function on the router. The Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be
opened through the router for remote access to your camera.
Follow these steps to configure your router’s Virtual Server settings
z
Click Enabled.
z
Enter a unique name for each entry.
z
Select Both under Protocol Type (TCP and UDP)
z
Enter your camera’s local IP Address (e.g., 192.168.0.20, for example) in the Private IP
field.
z
If you are using the default camera port settings, enter 80 into the Public and
Private Port section, click Add.
84
A check mark appearing before the entry name will indicate that the ports are enabled.
NOTE
Some ISPs block access to port 80. Be sure to check with your ISP so that you can
open the appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port 80, you
will need to change the port the camera uses from 80 to something else, such as 8080.
Not all routers are the same, so refer to your user manual for specific instructions on
how to open ports.
Enter valid ports in the Virtual Server section of your router. Please make sure to check the box
on this line to enable settings. Then the device can be access from WAN by the router’s WAN IP
Address.
By now, you have finished your entire PC configuration for this device.
