3.5.2 DDNS server
DDNS: 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.

Appendix C: 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-310 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-310, 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-310.
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-310, also can utilize
the PING command but you must disconnect the ICA-310 from the network first.
54/57
Appendix D: Bandwidth Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the ICA-310 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-310.
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-310 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 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.
