6.141 Accessing the DVR over a network...............................................................................81
To access the DVR through a computer you need to make sure the default gateway on
the DVR is the same IP address as your router, and the first three sets of numbers of the DVR
IP address are the same as the first three sets of numbers of router’s address. Example: if your
router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then the default gateway setting in the DVR should
be 192.168.1.1, and the first three sets of numbers on the DVR's IP address should be
192.168.1. The last set of numbers has to be different then those on any other devices
attached to the router to avoid conflicts. The subnet on the DVR also needs to be the same as
the router, example: if the subnet on the router is 255.255.255.0 the subnet on the DVR needs
to be 255.255.255.0. To get the default gateway and subnet of the router, on a computer that
is attached to the same router as the DVR, click on the start button, then click on run, then
enter cmd into the box and click on OK. At the curser type ipconfig, the default gateway and
subnet will be displayed. ..........................................................................................................81
You can access the DVR through an Internet Explorer browser window, or through the
included client software program. ...........................................................................................81
6.142 Accessing the DVR from a remote computer................................................................82
To access the DVR from a remote computer, in addition to the above steps, you will also
need to forward ports 80 and 8000 on the router the DVR is attached to, to the IP address of
the DVR. How you would do this depends on the brand and model number of your router.
You can go to www.portforward.com to get instructions on how to forward ports on most
popular routers. To access your router's program you would open an internet browser window
and type the default gateway of the router into the address bar at the top of the window. Then
follow the instructions for your router. ....................................................................................82
You can access the DVR through an Internet Explorer browser window, or through the
included client software program. ...........................................................................................82
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,
you need to modify your browser controls. You need to allow Pop-ups. To do so go to the
Internet Explorer tool bar and select the "tools" option, then select the "Pop up Blocker"
option and select "Turn Off Pop-up Blocker.” 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", then "Security", then click the "Custom Level" button, and make sure the Active X
Controls and Plug Ins are set to prompt or enabled. To connect to the DVR from the
remote computer you would then open an internet browser window and enter the internet IP
of your router. To get the internet IP of your router go to www.myipaddress.com from a
computer that is attached to the same router as the DVR. You would then access the DVR by

Page 3 Total 120
User Manual for Commercial Series Net DVR
typing the IP address you got from www.myipaddress.com into the browser window
(Example:http://70.69.120.123). You will get a login screen were you will need to enter your
user name and password (admin and 12345 by default). The first time you connect a webcam
program will be downloaded to your system and you may get a message that an ActiveX
control on the page may be unsafe but it is ok to click the Yes option to download the control
and program since you requested the program. This will take you to the Internet Explorer
Webcam screen. You would click on the Camera Icon to display cameras. If you wish to
access the DVR through the included client software follow the installation instructions on

Bit Rate Type: There are two options: “Variable” and “Fixed”.
If you select variable bit rate, DVR will adjust the actual bit rate according to the video
movement. When there is not much movement, DVR will use low bit rate, when there is much
movement, DVR will use high bit rate. In this case, DVR can save HDD usage and network
bandwidth.
If you select fixed bit rate, DVR will use the fixed bit rate to compress image. The bit rate
size is defined in “Max Bit Rate” option. In this case, we can calculate the recorded file size and
network bandwidth that we need.
Max Bit Rate: If you select variable bit rate, when the video input has great movement, we
need to limit the max bit rate. The max bit rate has the following options (bps): 32K, 48K, 64K,
80K, 96K, 128K, 160K, 192K, 224K, 256K, 320K, 384K, 448K, 512K, 640K, 768K, 896K, 1M,
1.25M, 1.5M, 1.75M, 2M and “User define”.
The max bit rate selection is related to resolution. If you select high resolution, you must
select high bit rate. For CIF resolution, the typical max bit rate is 384K-768Kbps. For DCIF
resolution, the typical bit rate is 512K-1Mbps. For 4CIF resolution, the typical bit rate is
1.25Mbps-1.75Mbps. Of course, you will select the proper max bit rate based on the camera,
background and image quality requirement.
Bit rate: You can select bit rate size for fixed bit rate type. It is the same as “Max Bit Rate”.
Image Quality: If you select variable bit rate type, you can define image quality. There are 6
options: Highest, Higher, High, Average, Low and Lowest. High image quality needs high bit rate
size.
Frame Rate: Frames per second. Options are: Full (PAL is 25 FPS and NTSC is 30FPS), 20,
16, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16. For low frame rate, you can select low bit rate size.
PreRecord Time: When you enable motion detection recording or external alarm recording,
you can define prerecord time. The options are: No PreRecord, 5 Seconds (default selection), 10
Seconds, 15 Seconds, 20 Seconds, 25 Seconds, 30 Seconds and Max PreRecord.
MaxPreRecord is to save all data in PreRecord buffer. The PreRecord time is related with bit
rate. The lower bit rate, the longer PreRecord time is.

6.141 Accessing the DVR over a network
To access the DVR through a computer you need to make sure the default gateway on
the DVR is the same IP address as your router, and the first three sets of numbers of the
DVR IP address are the same as the first three sets of numbers of router’s address.
Example: if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then the default gateway
setting in the DVR should be 192.168.1.1, and the first three sets of numbers on the
DVR's IP address should be 192.168.1. The last set of numbers has to be different then
those on any other devices attached to the router to avoid conflicts. The subnet on
the DVR also needs to be the same as the router, example: if the subnet on the router is
255.255.255.0 the subnet on the DVR needs to be 255.255.255.0. To get the default
gateway and subnet of the router, on a computer that is attached to the same router as
the DVR, click on the start button, then click on run, then enter cmd into the box and
click on OK. At the curser type ipconfig, the default gateway and subnet will be
displayed.

Example: if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then the default gateway setting in the DVR should be 192.168.1.1, and the first three sets of numbers on the DVR's IP address should be 192.168.1. The last set of numbers has to be different then those on any other devices attached to the router to avoid conflicts. The subnet on the DVR also needs to be the same as the router, example: if the subnet on the router is 255.255.255.0 the subnet on the DVR needs to be 255.255.255.0. To get the default gateway and subnet of the router, on a computer that is attached to the same router as the DVR, click on the start button, then click on run, then enter cmd into the box and click on OK.
