ASSIGNING IP ADDRESS & ACCESSING NETWORK

VIDEO SERVER’S HOMEPAGE

Access via IP Addresses

To access the NETWORK VIDEO SERVER, you need to assign an appropriate network IP address.

Important

To access NETWORK VIDEO SERVER, you first should assign an appropriate IP address. When you assign an IP address to NETWORK VIDEO SERVER, make sure to use an unoccupied IP address which is in the same subnet as the rest of your Network

Network IP Address:

A network IP address is an identification code for computers or devices on a TCP/IP network. Networks using TCP/IP protocol route messages based on the IP address of the destinations within a closed Network. IP addresses can be assigned at random as long as each one is unique. However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered, public IP address to avoid duplicates.

IP address can be acquired from a network administrator or an Internet service provider.

MAC (Ethernet) Address (Media Access Control Address)

MAC address is a hardware identification code that uniquely identifies each device of a network. The MAC layer interfaces directly with the network media. Consequently, each type of network media requires a different MAC layer. The MAC address of NETWORK VIDEO SERVER is a 12digit number. A unique MAC address can be found on the label at the bottom of each Network IP Camera.

NOTE

Please run the IP address installation program (IP Installer.exe) on a PC that is connected to the same local network as the NETWORK VIDEO SERVER.

Installation Using Windows IP Installer

To install an IP address, you should use the IP Installer provided with NETWORK VIDEO SERVER.

1) After you start IP INSTALLER it scans your network for available NETWORK VIDEO SERVERS and NETWORK IP CAMERAS. IP INSTALLER displays all devices found in the list box.

2) In order to change one particular NETWORK VIDEO SERVER (or NETWORK IP CAMERA), simply highlight the entry in the list box. As you do that the fields below will be populated with the devices current settings.

3) Enter a new IP Address, Gateway Address, Subnet Mask, (optional) DNS Server Address along with the Admin’s ID (admin) and Admin’s Password (admin).

4) Enter a new IP Address, Gateway Address, Subnet Mask, (optional) DNS Server Address along with the Admin’s ID (admin) and Admin’s Password (admin).

5) Click on “Change Network Configurations”.

6) Wait for the Success Message.

Note: The MAC Address can be found on the underside label of the NETWORK VIDEO SERVER. The MAC Address always starts with MNS.

Network Video Server User’s Guide

Information on IP Addresses

1.If you do not know which IP Address you have to enter in IP INSTALLER you should ask your Network Administrator for an available IP Address.

2.In case you are installing Network IP Camera in Home Network which communicates to the Internet using a Broadband Router, you should perform the following steps:

2.1. Find out the IP Range of your Network. Example: Windows XP Home Edition

Click on: START -> Settings -> Network Connections.

Double-Click the Local Area Connection Icon and activate the Support Tab.

In the example above the Default Gateway is 10.10.8.1. That needs to be entered in IP INSTALLER as the GATEWAY ADDRESS. In the example above the IP Address of the PC is 10.10.8.53; the camera can therefore have an IP Address of 10.10.8.xxx.

2.2. Find a free IP Address for NETWORK VIDEO SERVER

You need to find out which IP Address is not taken by any PC in the network, If you have a Router you can look at the DHCP Server configuration. If your PCs all obtain an IP Address from the Router you can assign an IP Address to the camera which is at the end of the DHCP range. Example: DHCP Range from 10.10.8.20

– 10.10.8.199

An IP Address at the end or beyond the DHCP range can be used for NETWORK VIDEO SERVER.

To verify that the IP Address is not taken you need to run the PING command from the command prompt for that IP Address, i.e. ping 10.10.8.201.

If address 10.10.8.201 is not responding you can safely use it as the IP ADDRESS in IP INSTALLER.

Network Video Server User’s Guide

Assigning IP Address by using Hyper Terminal (Advanced Users only)

This chapter is for advanced users only. Normally it is not required to access the camera via Hyper Terminal. The installation via IP INSTALLER is the preferred method. You may skip this chapter and continue with “Accessing NETWORK VIDEO SERVER Homepage”.

Configuring Hyper Terminal

Hyper Terminal is a basic program for Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP. A PC can communicate with external devices through the serial port by using this program. The steps you should take to set the Hyper Terminal are as follows in the case of Windows 2000 OS:

Assigning IP Address

Follow these steps to assign an IP address using Hyper Terminal

1.Execute “Hyper Terminal” on your PC

2.Connect RS232 Cable to the serial port of PC that you have selected in Chapter 4.3.1 - Configuring Hyper Terminal and the NETWORK VIDEO SERVER serial port while Hyper Terminal is executed.

3.Supply power to the NETWORK VIDEO SERVER.

4.A count down will start with the message “Press any key to stop auto-boot.”

5.Press any key and then “Boot” Prompt shall appear as below.

20

Network Video Server User’s Guide

6. You can see Network Configuration while [Boot] Prompt is running by pressing ‘p’ key again.

Here, inet on ethernet (e), host inet (h) and gateway inet (g) values are network configuration values. You should review these values and change accordingly. If you don’t know what value you should assign, contact your network administrator.

Inet on ethernet (e) is IP address and subnet mask address of NETWORK VIDEO SERVER. IP address and subnet mask addresses are separated by colon (:). For example, IP address is represented by decimal numbers delimited by dot (.) like ‘192.168.1.27’. Hexadecimal numbers like ‘ffffff00’ in the case of ‘255.255.255.0’ represents subnet mask address. Note that the numbers of subnet mask value are not delimited by dot. See the example in the above picture.

Host inet (h) is the address to which NETWORK VIDEO SERVER tries to connect to upgrade its firmware program in flash memory. NETWORK VIDEO SERVER first searches this host on the network on booting sequence. For more information on NETWORK VIDEO SERVER upgrade, refer to “E. Updating NETWORK VIDEO SERVER’s Newly upgraded Program”.

21

Network Video Server User’s Guide

Gateway inet (g) is the gateway address of Network Camera

7.Type ‘c’ key to change the network configuration in [Boot] prompt. If you type ‘c’ key, NETWORK VIDEO SERVER shows you the information you can change its values and the current assigned values. You can change as the following figure.

8.When you terminate hyper-terminal program after you changed network configuration, hyper-terminal program asks you whether you saved the session. If you saved the session, you can re-use the hyper-terminal. To re-use the session you saved, click Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> HyperTerminal --> NETWORK VIDEO SERVER
