Assigning the IP
Address to the unit
To connect the unit to a network, you need to assign a
new IP address to the unit when you install it for the first
You can assign an IP address in two ways:
• Using SNC toolbox stored in the supplied CD-ROM
(see this page)
• Using the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol)
commands (see page 102)
This section explains how to assign an IP address to the
unit using the supplied setup program and how to
configure the network.
Before starting, connect the unit, referring to
"Connection" in the supplied Installation Manual.
Consult the administrator of the network about the
assigned IP address.
• SNC toolbox may not operate correctly if you use a
personal firewall or antivirus software in your
computer. In that case, disable the software or assign
an IP address to the camera using another method. For
example, see "Assigning the IP Address to the unit
using ARP Commands" on page 102.
• If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later,
or Windows Vista, disable the Windows Firewall
function. Otherwise SNC toolbox will not operate
correctly. For the setting, see "Configuring Windows
Firewall" in "When using Windows XP Service Pack
2 or later" on page 9 or "Configuring Windows
Firewall" in "When using Windows Vista" on
