REMOTE MONITORING GUIDE FOR QT4 SERIES DVRS

Accessing the DVR from a computer attached to the same router: If you are only going to access the DVR from a computer that is attached to the same router as the DVR you only need to setup the information in the NETWORK settings using either the DHCP option or assigning a static IP following the instructions below. Since you are just going from one location to another on the same network port forwarding and knowing the public IP address are not necessary. You would just access the DVR by entering the IP address of the DVR from the NETWORK setup into the Internet Explorer browser window.

After you setup the NETWORK settings using DHCP or Static IP instructions skip down to the section: To

access the DVR through Internet Explorer.

There are 4 ways you can setup the DVR to be accessed remotely; DHCP, Static IP, PPPOE, and DDNS.

DHCP: If your router is setup for DHCP, and most of them are by default, you can have the router assign an IP address to the DVR. To do this go to the Main Menu and select the System icon (Red box in Fig 1), then select the Network icon (Red box in Fig 2), this will display the NETWORK screen shown in Fig 3. Put a checkmark in the box at the end of the “Obtain an IP address automatically” line (Red box in Fig 3) and then click the TEST button (Green box in Fig 3). After you get the OK message in the lower left hand corner of the screen you click the Apply button to save the IP address. To find out what IP address was assigned you need to go to the Information icon (Green box in Fig 1). After the router has assigned the DVR an IP address it is a good idea to write down the address from the information section and then type the address into the IP address line and then remove the checkmark from the box above the line. This is the IP address you will forward ports 80 and 6036 to on the router so you can access the DVR from remote computers.

Static IP: You will need to setup the network settings on the DVR to match the settings of the router that you attach the DVR to. To get the router settings you would go to the run option on a computer attached to the same router as the DVR and type cmd and hit OK to bring up a command prompt (Fig 4), then type ipconfig at the prompt (RED arrow on Fig 4) to access the router settings. Write down the gateway and subnet mask numbers (GREEN arrows on (Fig 4) so you can copy them into the network settings on the DVR (GREEN boxes on Fig 5). Go to the Main Menu and select the Setup option (Red box in Fig 1), then select the Network icon (Red box in Fig 2), to get to the NETWORK screen shown in Fig 5.

~ 4 ~

Fig 5 Static IP

For the DVRs IP address you would enter the same first 3 sets of numbers as the gateway and select a fourth set of numbers that is different then any other device attached to the same router. If the IP address of your computer in the ipconfig (BLUE arrow in Fig 4) was a single or two digit number you should be ok with any three digit number, if the computer IP address ends with a number in the 100s then you should go with a 200 number (Blue arrow in Fig 5). After you enter the numbers click the test button (Red box in Fig 5), when you get the OK message in the lower left corner of the screen click on the Apply button to save the setting.

PPPOE: If you are going to attach the DVR directly to a DSL or Cable modem instead of a router you will need to select the PPPOE option in the NETWORK options. To do this go to the Main Menu and select the System icon (Red box in Fig 1), then select the Network icon (Red box in Fig 2), this will display the NETWORK screen shown in Fig 6. Put a checkmark in the PPPOE option box (Red box in Fig 6) and enter your internet account User Name and Password in the boxes. You will need to contact your internet service provider to get the User name and Password you need to enter into these boxes. After you enter the information into the boxes click on the Test button (Green box in Fig 6), after you get the OK message in the lower left of the screen click on the Apply button to save the information.

Fig 6 PPPoE

DDNS: You can access the DVR through a static or dynamic IP address; however a dynamic address can change from time to time. How often depends on your service provider. When it changes you need to go to a website such aswww.myipaddress.com from a computer attached to the same router as the DVR to find out what the new IP address is. There are two solutions to this problem. One would be to get a static IP address from your service provider so that you do not have to be concerned with the address changing. Another solution would to use a dynamic domain name service to get a domain name that can be linked to your dynamic IP address. We suggestmyq-see.com or www.dyndns.com since the DVR is setup to accept account information from these two domain name services.

NOTE: Before you setup DDNS you must first set up Port Forwarding as directed in the section below.

To setup the DVR for access through a dynamic domain name you go to the Main Menu and select the System icon (Red box in Fig 1), then select the Network icon (Red box in Fig 2), this will display the NETWORK screen shown in Fig 7. Put a checkmark in the DDNS option (Red box in Fig 7). Select the service you are using from the drop down menu under the checkmark box and enter the account information you registered with the domain name service. Click the Test button under the boxes where you entered the account information and after you get the OK message in the lower left hand corner of the screen click on the Apply button. You will then be able to access the DVR remotely by entering the domain name into a browser window on a remote computer. This DVR supports DDNS provided by myq-see.comandwww.dyndns.com.

NOTE: For Instructions for setting up DDNS through myq-see.comsee theMYQ-SEESetup Guide

PORT FORWARDING

To access the DVR from a remote computer you need to forward ports 80 and 6036 from the router the DVR is attached to, to the IP address of the DVR.

1.Connect your DVR to the Router and power on DVR

2.Configure your DVR and Set up port forwarding on your router

a.Go to www.portforward.com/qsee

b.Choose your DVR or Series (QT4) from the list provided

~7 ~

c. Select the make and model of your router from the list

d.Click on the ‘Click here to skip this advertisement…’ link in the upper right corner of the screen.

Notice: When you go to the www.portforward.com website you will see an ad for a software program that will setup port forwarding for you. You do not need to buy this software. Above the ad there is a link to skip the ad, if you click on the link it will take you to the instructions which are free. You can purchase the software if you want to, but you do not need to pay to get the port forwarding instructions.

e.Follow the instruction on the website (The top set of instructions are done on the DVR. The bottom set of instructions are done on the router)

~8 ~

f.Verify the ports are open and traffic is allowed

a.Go to www.canyouseeme.org

b.Type the port number that your DVR requires in the box.(See picture) The default ports are 80 and 6036.

c.Verify that the port(s) is open.

i.If the port is open, you will see the following message:”Success. I can see your service…”

~9 ~

ii.Go to the section below: To access the DVR through Internet Explorer

iii.Otherwise, if the ports are not open, you will get the following message: “Error: I couldnot see your service on64.206.234.34 on port (80) - Reason:Connection refused”. If you get this error, call your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and ask

them to unblock those ports for you.

iv. After your ISP unblocks those ports for you, repeat steps i and ii.

When you access the DVR from a remote computer you also need to use a different address in the Internet Explorer browser window. Instead of entering the IP address of the DVR you need to enter the public IP address of the router the DVR is attached to. You can get this address by going to www.myipaddress.com from a computer that is attached to the same router as the DVR. This website will display the box in the picture below that shows the IP address you need to use. It will be in the space where the below example shows 76.254.183.54.

~ 10 ~

To access the DVR through Internet Explorer: once you have setup the network settings on the DVR to match the settings of your router and forwarded the ports needed by the DVR (for remote access over the internet), you need to modify your browser controls. You need to allowPop-ups.To do so go to the Internet Explorer tool bar and select the "tools" option (RED box in Pic 1), then select the "Pop up Blocker" option and select "Turn OffPop-upBlocker” (BLUE arrows in Pic 1). You will also need to enable Active X controls. To do so go to the Internet Explorer tool bar and select the "tools" option, then "Internet Options"(GREEN arrow in Pic 1).

To connect to the DVR from the remote computer you would then open an Internet Explorer browser window and enter the internet IP of your router that you got by going to www.myipaddress.com (you have

to do this from a PC that connect to same Router as your DVR).

Notice: If you cannot use HTTP port 80 or 6036 because the port is being used by another program, or it is being blocked by your service provider, you can use another port in the same range. If you do so then you need to forward the IP address of the router to the other port, change the port in the DVR NETWORK settings, and you need to add the port number after the IP address. For example, if you set the HTTP port as 82, you need to enter the IP address as 192.168.0.25:82. After you have forwarded the ports you can verify that the ports are open by going to canyouseeme.org from a computer that is attached to the same router as the DVR.

Once you able to login, you will get the login screen, by default the login and password are admin and 123456 .

Notice: If you still have problems connecting remotely: Anti-virus programs could also block the ActiveX

control, if you still have a problem try closing them. Other plug-inscould also block it. Close firewalls in Windows and in the router if applicable. If you run Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will need to disable User Account (UAC).Follow this link for instructions:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/disable-user-account-control-uac-the-easy-way-on-windows-vista/

If you have a router plugged into another router, for example, if you have the DVR attached to a router which is attached to DSL or Cable router, you may need to forward port 80 and 6036 (or whatever ports you are using) on the DSL or Cable router to the IP address of the router that the DVR is attached to, so that router can then forward the port to the DVR. Please refer to the PORT FORWARDING section above on how to get instructions on how to forward the port on the other router.

NOTICE: For instructions on how to use the remote viewing software please refer to the Remote Viewing section in the user’s manual.
