25 Appendix #1 - Setting up Remote Viewing IP & MAC Address 1. Access the Main Menu Setup screens, and navigate to the SYSTEM MENU - EXTERNAL DEVICE - TCP/IP SETUP - IP SETUP option. 2. Record the MAC Address of your system. This information is NECESSARY for the DDNS Setup process. The MAC Address is 12 characters with no spaces or dashes. 3. Confirm that the DHCP MODE is set to AUTOMATIC. This will allow your system to lease an IP ADDRESS from your router. If the system is not set to AUTOMATIC, change the setting and click IP DETECT - the system will obtain an IP address. 4. The IP PORT is by default. The IP Address, Gateway and Subnet are assigned to your system by your router. If the settings are not displayed, and the unit is set to DHCP MODE: AUTOMATIC, you may need to click IP DETECT - the system will obtain an IP address. 5. Press ESC to exit.

One of the fastest ways to find this information is to use a 3rd Party website such as Your IP address can also be found within your Router settings. Refer to your router user guide for further details. NOTE: Your External IP address may occasionally change, based on your specific Internet Provider. A DDNS Service allows you to connect to your unit, regardless of an IP Address change by providing you with a Dynamic Address (and connecting via your system specific MAC address). 25
26 Appendix #1 - Setting up Remote Viewing Network - Router Port Forwarding You will need to enable port forwarding on your Router to allow for external communications with your System for ports: TCP/IP PORT WEB PORT 80 Computers, Systems, and other devices inside your network can only communicate directly with each other within the internal network. Computers and systems outside your network cannot directly communicate with these devices. When a system on the internal network needs to send or receive information from a system outside the network (i.e. from the Internet), the information is sent to the Router. NETWORK EXAMPLE Router External IP Router Internal IP Computer Internal IP System Internal IP Internet Internal Network When a computer on the Internet needs to send data to your internal network, it sends this data to the external IP address of the Router. The Router then needs to decide where this data is to be sent to. This is where setting up Port Forwarding becomes important. Port Forwarding tells the router which device on the internal network to send the data to. When you set up port forwarding on your Router, it takes the data from the external IP address:port number and sends that data to an internal IP address:port number (i.e Router External IP :50000 to System Internal IP :50000). The instructions found online in the Router Configuration Guide will assist you in the port forwarding configurations for a selection of different router models.
