3. Connecting iCanServer540R to Network
iCanServer540R supports LAN, xDSL, and Cable modem. It also supports shared IP environment where single IP address is shared by at least 2 IP devices. Guide] for details of setting the IP address for iCanServer540R. 3.1. Connecting to LAN In case of connecting the iCanServer540R to LAN, it is generally connected as in Figure 3-1. Refer to [IP-Installer User’s

Figure 3-1. Connecting the iCanServer540R to LAN 1. Follow through steps 1 to 4 in Section 2.5 to assign IP address to iCanServer540R. 2. Install iCanServer540R and connect it to desired LAN. 3. Check if you can receive video data when connecting to iCanServer540R using the viewer program. 4. When one or more IP video products are connected through a IP sharing device (i.e. router) to a larger network (i.e. the internet), in order to access each unit from outside the local area network, each device must have a unique RTSP (Real Time Stream Protocol) and HTTP port number. You must also configure your IP sharing device for “port forwarding”. This is to enable

the IP sharing device to forward packet data with unique port number (RTSP and HTTP) to unique internal IP address (local IP address). If you only plan to access multiple units from within a local area network, you do not need to change the RTSP and HTTP port numbers, unless other IP sharing devices sit in-between the client and the IP video products. For more detailed information regarding the use of IP sharing device refer to the document [Use of Private IP network using IP-sharing-device]. 3.2. Connecting to xDSL/Cable Modem to iCanServer540R. 2. Install iCanServer540R and connect it to xDSL or Cable modem as in Figure 3-2.

1. Follow through steps 1 to 4 in Section 2.5 to assign IP address and other network parameters

Figure 3-2. Connecting the iCanServer540R to ADSL Modem

When fixed IP address is assigned to the xDSL or Cable modem, follow the same way as assigning IP address for the case of LAN using IP-installer. To enable the notification of the changed IP address to the user over e-mail when the IP address is changed in floating IP

Check the power and network connection of iCanServer540R. To check if the network is properly operating, open the browser and try to connect to any server. Example) http://www.icantek.com Or open the MS-DOS Prompt and type the following. ping www.icantek.com Then press Enter. If you see the “ Reply from …” message it means that the network is working properly. To check if the iCanServer540R is connected, open the MS-DOS Prompt and type the following. ping [the IP of the server] Example) ping 192.168.1.112 If you see the “Reply from …” message, it means that the server is properly connected. If you do not see a Reply message, check if the network cable and power cable are properly connected.

• Name of the channel on iCanServer540R is displayed but there is no video. Check if there is input video source to the channel. And check if there is a firewall in the network. Check if the network is NAT type. In case there is a firewall in the network: Try a TCP connection. TCP connection is usually enabled by checking TCP box before connecting to iCanServer540R. Refer to viewer manual for more detailed operation. If the network is NAT type, you need port mapping. It is be achieved by setting the NAT server to forward all packets coming in through a specific port to iCanServer540R.

2. After Successfully Connecting to the iCanServer540R • Video movement is slow. In Basic Setup of Admin Mode, lower the “Quality”. High quality means more data. You can also set the “Max. Bandwidth” to higher value. But this value must be lower than the maximum upload speed of your network. For example, if the maximum uploading bandwidth of the network is 400Kbps, set the total “Max. Bandwidth” of the 4 channels to 384Kbps. If you set it higher, the video image can be corrupted with artifacts. Ask your network manager or ISP for maximum uploading bandwidth of the network. Check whether dual streaming mode is enabled and iCanServer540R is recording video. Dual streaming mode is enabled by selecting “Enable High Quality Video Recording” in basic set-up page (Refer to Section 5.2). When dual streaming mode is enabled, iCanServer540R provides low speed video to connected user while recording high quality video into HDD. • The image is dull and I see green, pink dots. This could be caused by performance limitation of the PC. Do not run too many programs while running viewer program. The other reason could be missing data while transmission from
