Q. How to set UPnP and Alternate Port in the camera?A.
When enabled, the Camera's Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) feature allows a UPnP-enabled computer to easily detect the Camera. The Camera's UPnP feature is disabled by default. If your computer is UPnP-enabled, then click the checkbox next to UPnP.
If you want the Camera to be able to use an alternate port for communications, click the checkbox. Then enter the port number you want in the Port Number field (from 1024 to 65534, the default is 1024). If you already have a Web Server on your LAN, then you should enable the Alternate Port and use this port number instead of port 80.
To access the Web Utility, launch Internet Explorer, and enter the Camera's IP address in the Address field. (If there are no DHCP servers available, the camera automatically defaults to 192.168.1.115.) Then press Enter. Enter username and password - admin/admin is the default.
Select the Setup tab, then click on the Options.
Apply setting to take effect.
