Configuring IP services

To configure IP services, go to Network > Services.

Use this page to control the type of services that may be accessed via Ethernet Ports A and B. You might use this if one Ethernet port is connected to a network outside your organization's firewall, and you wish to restrict the level of access that external users are entitled to, for example, by disabling FTP access via Port B. Refer to the table below for more details.

In addition to controlling the Ethernet interfaces over which a service operates, this page also allows an administrator to specify the port number on which that service is provided. If the port number for a service is changed, it is necessary to ensure that the new value chosen does not clash with the port number used by any of the other services; it is not, however, normally necessary to use anything other than the pre-configured default values.

Note that by default SNMP Traps are sent to port UDP port 162 (on the destination network management station); this is configurable. For more information, refer to Configuring SNMP settings.

 

Field Field description Usage tips
TCP service
Web

Enable/disables web access on the specified interface.

Web access is required to view and change the IP VCR web pages and read online help files. If you disable web access on both Ports A and B you will need to use the serial console interface to re-enable it.

QuickTime uses RTSP by default which is listed as Streaming (other) on the Network > Services page. However, the QuickTime player can be configured to use HTTP instead.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

Secure web

Enable/disables secure (HTTPS) web access on the specified interface.

This field is only visible if the IP VCR has the Secure management (HTTPS) feature key installed. For more information about installing feature keys, refer to Upgrading the firmware.

By default, the IP VCR has its own SSL certificate and private key. However, you can upload a new private key and certificates if required. For more information about SSL certificates, refer to Configuring SSL certificates.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

Incoming H.323

Allows/rejects incoming calls to the IP VCR using H.323.

Disabling this option will not prevent outgoing calls to H.323 devices being made by the IP VCR.

That is, the IP VCR will need to dial out to conference participants who are using H.323.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

Incoming SIP (TCP)

Allows/rejects incoming calls to the IP VCR using SIP over TCP.

Disabling this option will not prevent outgoing calls to SIP devices being made by the IP VCR. That is, the IP VCR will need to dial out to conference participants who are using SIP over TCP.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

Streaming (Windows Media Player)

Allows/disables streaming from the IP VCR to Windows Media Player.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

Streaming (other)

Allows/disables RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) streaming from the IP VCR to QuickTime or RealPlayer.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

FTP

Enables/disables FTP access on the specified interface.

FTP can be used to upload and download recordings, and IP VCR configuration.

You should consider disabling FTP access on any port that is outside your organization's firewall.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

UDP service
SIP (UDP)

Allows/rejects incoming and outgoing calls to the IP VCR using SIP over UDP.

Disabling this option will prevent calls using SIP over UDP.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

You must use the same port number for both Port A and Port B. The number is automatically refreshed for Port B. You cannot change the Port B UDP port numbers and they are always grayed-out; if you want to allow incoming and outgoing SIP (UDP) calls on Port B, ensure that you have the video firewall as an activated feature (refer to Upgrading the firmware) and you have checked the tickbox for SIP (UDP) on Port B.

SNMP

Enables/disables the receiving of the SNMP protocol on this port.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

You must use the same port number for both Port A and Port B. The number is automatically refreshed for Port B. You cannot change the Port B UDP port numbers and they are always grayed-out; if you want to enable the receiving of the SNMP protocol on Port B, ensure that you have the video firewall as an activated feature (refer to Upgrading the firmware) and you have checked the tickbox for SNMP on Port B.

Note that by default SNMP Traps are sent to port UDP port 162 (on the destination network management station); this is configurable. For more information, refer to Configuring SNMP settings.

H.323 gatekeeper

Defines the ports for the H.323 gatekeeper.

If a port is disabled, this option will be unavailable.

You must use the same port number for both Port A and Port B. The number is automatically refreshed for Port B. You cannot change the Port B UDP port numbers and they are always grayed-out; if you want to open Port B for the H.323 gatekeeper, ensure that you have the video firewall as an activated feature (refer to Upgrading the firmware) and you have checked the tickbox for H.323 gatekeeper on Port B.
