10.) Make sure “Static” is selected at top.
11.) Assign an IP address to the IP Camera by using the first 3 sets of numbers of your default gateway.
Use exactly the same 3 sets of numbers as your default gateway that you wrote down.
For Example: If the default gateway is 192.168.1.1
Then the IP Camera’s IP Address will start with 192.168.1._
Note: Last set of numbers are called the host number, not entered yet.
For the host number, be sure to assign a different number than your computer’s host number
(2-250) Complete the IP Camera’s IP address by entering a host number (last digits).
Complete the IP Camera’s IP address by entering a host number (last digits).
12.) Enter the information you wrote down from Step 2 on page 3.
A.) Subnet Mask
B.) (Default) Gateway
C.) DNS (Server)
D.) Port (Channel Vision recommends 8000
13.) After entering the information, click “Submit”
14.) (Example) Open http://192.168.1.208:8000 in Internet Explorer
http://(Your IP Camera’s IP):(port you assigned)

21.) The first time you connect to the IP Camera through Internet Explorer, it will ask you to install
the ActiveX control on your computer. Internet Explorer 6,7,8, or 9 must be used with this
ActiveX control. However, IE 6 is very old, and will not always work. If the ActiveX control
does not load, please go to “Tools” “Internet Options”, then “Security” then “Custom Level”
Every area that mentions ActiveX should be “Prompt” unless it is already set to enable or disable.

Port Forwarding
Many routers have the ability to port forward your IP Camera allowing access to the IP camera
from anywhere in the world. Below are some basic examples of port forwarding.
The example below is of a SMC router.
This must be completed to view on any device outside of your home or office network.
Forward your router to forward a port (such as port 5400) to the internal IP address of the IP Camera
Using the SMC router interface, click Advanced Setup.
Click NAT and the Virtual Server page should appear as shown below.
(Other routers should have a similar interface)
Port Forwarding SMC Router
Enter the address
of the DVR
Designate a port (should be the
same port you set on the DVR)
206
Check box to
enable forwarding
5400
Choose TCP from the drop down box
(Transmission Control Protocol)
Note: the address shown above is just an example.
To activate the changes, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Apply” and then “Restart”.

Port Forwarding
Below are several points of reference regarding port forwarding.
1.) Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_forward
The wikipedia page explains what port forwarding is, how it is used and what its applications are.

2.) Http://screenshots.portforward.com/
This website contains picture by picture walkthroughs on how to port forward most routers on the market.

Port Forwarding LG Routers
In the example below, there is a IP Camera running on port 8002 on the LAN.
1.) Add the IP information, including the desired port into the port forwarding tab of “advanced” in the router
2.) Check “Enable Port Forwarding”.

3.) Click ‘Add”.
4.) Click “Select”.

Common Issues
Over the course of setting up hundreds of DVR’s and IP Cameras, we have found some routers to be
problem routers.
Some are companies, some are just general things to look out for. Below are a list of things to note.
1.) 2Wire modem/router combinations do not work the normal way with this DVR/IP Camera.
You cannot set up the IP Camera on “LAN” and must select “DHCP” in IP Installer.
Once you do this, there is a good chance that the IP Camera will show up in the 2Wire router,
allowing you to port forward the IP Camera. If you give the IP Camera a LAN address, the 2Wire
router will not detect it, and you cannot port forward it.
2.) Port forwarding does not work in all routers. Sometimes, a router flat out doesn’t have the ability
to do port forwarding. This is very rare. However, they do exist.
3.) Port forwarding may not work in a router because it is defective. It is always possible, though very
rare, that the router the customer has is defective when it comes to port forwarding
4.) Lets say you already port forwarded the router, and IP Camera should be working outside of the
network. Inside of the network, the IP Camera works, however, the IP Camera does not work
externally.
There are many reasons this could happen, but here are the 2 most common causes of something
like that:
A.) The IP Camera network page is not set up properly. For example, maybe they are missing the
DNS server, or the subnet mask is wrong. It will still connect internally usually, but not externally.
B.) The customer unknowingly has 2 routers. No matter what you do, you cannot have 2 routers in a
network if you wish to view the IP Camera outside of the network. The only exception to this is if one
router is completely disabled, being used only as a wireless access point
