3.0 Configuring and
Programming the D6682
Factory Default IP Address
By default, the D6682 uses DHCP to obtain an IP
Address. The unit requires a static IP Address. Refer
to Sections 3.2, 3.3, and 3.4 for more information.
Identifying the MAC Hardware
1. Verify that the D6682 is properly installed,
connected, and powered.
Refer to Section 2.0 Installation on page 4.
2. Locate the D6682's media access control
(MAC), or hardware, address.
The MAC address is hard-coded into the
D6682 during manufacturing, and it cannot be
changed. This address is 6 bytes (12 digits)
in length and is located on a label on the
D6682 in the format of "xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx".

3. Record the MAC address and keep it for
Obtaining an IP Address
Provide the D6682's MAC address to the site's
network administrator, who will assign an IP address
to the D6682.
An IP Address is an identifier for a computer or device
on a transmission control protocol/internet protocol
(TCP/IP) network. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol
route messages based on the IP address of the
destination. The format of an IP address is a 32-bit
numeric address written as four numbers or fields
separated by periods. Each number can be 0 to 255.
For example, 22.214.171.124 could be an IP
address. Within an isolated network, you can assign
IP addresses at random if each one is unique.
However, connecting a private network to the Internet
requires using registered IP addresses (called
Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.

Bosch Security Systems, Inc. recommends that you
read this entire section before proceeding. Also,
ensure that power is applied to the D6682 and the
Ethernet Network RJ45 connection is in place.
The D6200 Software is the recommended way to
program the network devices. If you choose to use
the software to program the network devices, review
Section 3.7 Programming Overview for the D6600 on
page 10, and the D6200 Programming Software
Operation and Installation Guide (P/N: 4998154991).

In order to access the configuration
program, ensure that the D6682 and the
PC used to configure it are on the same
gateway (the device that connects the
LAN to the WAN).
Use the telnet program to communicate

ARP is a Windows-based program used to
create a temporary association between an
IP address and a hardware address, such as

operating system) by default during the
installation of the operating system as shown
in Figure 5.
