4 Accessing the IP Camera for the First Time

After you install the IP camera, you can access it by using a PC and configure basic settings. To do so, follow these steps from a PC that is on the same network as the IP camera and that is running Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit) or higher:

Procedure


Step 1 Start Internet Explorer 8 (32-bit) or later, enter HTTPS://ip_address in the Address field, then press Enter.

Replace ip_address with the IP address that the IP camera obtains through DHCP in your network. If the camera does not obtain this IP address after 90 seconds, enter 192.168.0.100.

The Login window appears.

Step 2 Enter the default login credentials:

Username: admin

Password: admin

The Initialization window appears.

Step 3 In the Password and Confirm Password fields in the admin row, enter a password for the IP camera administrator. Enter the same password in both fields. The password is case sensitive and can contain up to 8 letters, numbers, and special characters, but no spaces.

Step 4 In the Password and Conform Password fields in the root row, enter a password for accessing the IP camera through a SSH connection. Enter the same password in both fields. The password is case sensitive and can contain up to 8 letters, numbers, and special characters, but no spaces.

You use this password if you need to troubleshoot the IP camera through an SSH connection with the assistance of the Cisco Technical Assistance Center.

Step 5 In the HTTP area, click the HTTP radio button if you want to allow both HTTP and HTTPS connections to the IP camera.

The default setting is HTTPS, which allows only HTTPS (secure) connections to the IP camera.

Step 6 Click Apply and wait for the IP camera to reboot.

Step 7 After the IP camera reboots, start Internet Explorer, enter protocol://ip_address in the Address field, then press Enter.

Replace protocol with HTTPS or HTTP. (You can use HTTP only if you enabled it Step 5.) Replace ip_address with the IP address that you used in Step 1.

Step 8 If you are prompted to install ActiveX controls, follow the on-screen prompts to do so. ActiveX is required to view video from the IP camera.

The Home window appears. You can now click View Video to view live video, click Setup to configure the IP camera, or click Logout to exit
