Performing the Initial Setup of the IP Camera

After you install IP camera as described in the
factory reset procedure, you must access the IP camera and make initial configuration settings. These
settings include administrator and root passwords, and whether the IP camera can be accessed through
an HTTP connection in addition to the default HTTPS (HTTP secure) connection.
To make these configuration settings, you connect to the IP camera from any PC that is on the same
network as the IP camera. The PC must meet these requirements:
Operating system—Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Browser—Internet Explorer 8.0 (32-bit only)
In addition, you must know the IP address and default login credentials of the IP camera. By default,
when the IP camera powers on, it attempts to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server in your network.

of The default login credentials (Username/Password) are admin/admin.
To connect to the IP camera for the first time and make initial configuration settings, perform the

Surveillance 6000 Series IP Camera Configuration Guide.
