TCP/IP

NVRiSettingNetworkTCPIP.png

The single network adapter interface is shown as in Figure 4‑99 and the dual network adapters interface is shown as in Figure 4‑100.

  • Network Mode : Includes multiple access, fault tolerance, and load balancing
    • Multiple-address mode: eth0 and eth1 operate separately. You can use the services such as HTTP, RTP service via etho0 or the eth1. Usually you need to set one default card (default setup is etho) to request the auto network service form the device-end such as DHCP, email, FTP and etc. In multiple-address mode, system network status is shown as offline once one card is offline.
    • Network fault-tolerance: In this mode, device uses bond0 to communicate with the external devices. You can focus on one host IP address. At the same time, you need to set one master card. Usually there is only one running card (master card).System can enable alternate card when the master card is malfunction. The system is shown as offline once these two cards are both offline. Please note these two cards shall be in the same LAN.
    • Load balance: In this mode, device uses bond0 to communicate with the external device. The eth0 and eth1 are both working now and bearing the network load. Their network load are general the same. The system is shown as offline once these two cards are both offline. Please note these two cards shall be in the same LAN.
  • Default Network Card: Please select eth0/eth1/bond0(optional) after enable multiple-access function
  • Main Network Card: Please select eth0/eth1 (optional).after enable multiple access function.

Note: The dual-Ethernet port series support the above three configurations and supports functions as multiple-access, fault-tolerance and load balancing.

  • IP Version: There are two options: IPv4 and IPv6. Right now, system supports these two IP address format and you can access via them.
  • MAC address: The host in the LAN can get a unique MAC address. It is for you to access in the LAN. It is read-only.
  • IP address: Here you can use up/down button (pq) or input the corresponding number to input IP address. Then you can set the corresponding subnet mask the default gateway.
  • Default gateway: Here you can input the default gateway. Please note system needs to check the validity of all IPv6 addresses. The IP address and the default gateway shall be in the same IP section. That is to say, the specified length of the subnet prefix shall have the same string.
  • DHCP: It is to auto search IP. When enable DHCP function, you can not modify IP/Subnet mask /Gateway. These values are from DHCP function. If you have not enabled DHCP function, IP/Subnet mask/Gateway display as zero. You need to disable DHCP function to view current IP information. Besides, when PPPoE is operating, you can not modify IP/Subnet mask /Gateway.
  • MTU: It is to set MTU value of the network adapter. The value ranges from 1280-7200 bytes. The default setup is 1500 bytes. Please note MTU modification may result in network adapter reboot and network becomes off. That is to say, MTU modification can affect current network service. System may pop up dialog box for you to confirm setup when you want to change MTU setup. Click OK button to confirm current reboot, or you can click Cancel button to terminate current modification. Before the modification, you can check the MTU of the gateway; the MTU of the NVR shall be the same as or is lower than the MTU of the gateway. In this way, you can reduce packets and enhance network transmission efficiency.

The following MTU value is for reference only.

  • 1500: Ethernet information packet max value and it is also the default value. It is the typical setup when there is no PPPoE or VPN. It is the default setup of some router, switch or the network adapter.
  • 1492: Recommend value for PPPoE.
  • 1468: Recommend value for DHCP.
  • Preferred DNS server: DNS server IP address.
  • Alternate DNS server: DNS server alternate address.
  • Transfer mode: Here you can select the priority between fluency/video qualities.
  • LAN download: System can process the downloaded data first if you enable this function. The download speed is 1.5X or 2.0X of the normal speed.
  • LAN download: System can process the downloaded data first if you enable this function. The download speed is 1.5X or 2.0X of the normal speed.

After completing all the setups please click save button, system goes back to the previous menu.

Quick DDNS and Client-end Introduction

1) Background Introduction

Device IP is not fixed if you use ADSL to login the network. The DDNS function allows you to access the NVR via the registered domain name. Besides the general DDNS ,the Quick DDNS works with the device from the manufacturer so that it can add the extension function.

2) Function Introduction

The quick DDNS client has the same function as other DDNS client end. It realizes the bonding of the domain name and the IP address. Right now, current DDNS server is for our own devices only. You need to refresh the bonding relationship of the domain and the IP regularly. There is no user name, password or the ID registration on the server. At the same time, each device has a default domain name (Generated by MAC address) for your option. You can also use customized valid domain name (has not registered.).

3) Operation

Before you use Quick DDNS, you need to enable this service and set proper server address, port value and domain name.

  • Server address:quickddns.com
  • Port number:80
  • Domain name:There are two modes: Default domain name and customized domain name.

Except default domain name registration, you can also use customized domain name (You can input your self-defined domain name.)  After successful registration, you can use domain name to login installed of the device IP.

  • User name: It is optional. You can input your commonly used email address.

Important

  • Do not register frequently. The interval between two registrations shall be more than 60 seconds. Too many registration requests may result in server attack.
  • System may take back the domain name that is idle for one year. You can get a notification email before the cancel operation if your email address setup is OK.

UPnP

NVRiSettingNetworkUPnP.png

The UPNP protocol is to establish a mapping relationship between the LAN and the WAN. Please input the router IP address in the LAN.

  • UPNP on/off :Turn on or off the UPNP function of the device.
  • Status: When the UPNP is offline, it shows as “Unknown”. When the UPNP works it shows “Success”
  • Router LAN IP: It is the router IP in the LAN.
  • WAN IP: It is the router IP in the WAN.
  • Port Mapping list: The port mapping list here is the one to one relationship with the router’s port mapping setting.
  • List:
    • Service name:Defined by user.
    • Protocol: Protocol type
    • Internal port:Port that has been mapped in the router.
    • External port:Port that has been mapped locally.
  • Default: UPNP default port setting is the HTTP, TCP and UDP of the NVR.
  • Add to the list: Click it to add the mapping relationship.
  • Delete: Click it to remove one mapping item.

Double click one item; you can change the corresponding mapping information.


Important:

When you are setting the router external port, please use 1024~5000 port. Do not use well-known port 1~255 and the system port 256~1023 to avoid conflict.

For the TCP and UDP, please make sure the internal port and external port are the same to guarantee the proper data transmission.
