ISDN Data Connections: Dial-Out Connections
On the Dial-Out Connections tab of the ISDN Data Connections dialog, you define the parameters which the camera uses to dial-out to the Internet or an ISDN router via ISDN (e.g. to transfer an image or send an e-mail).
To edit the ISDN connections for dialing in, click on the Dial-In Connections tab; certain parameters for dialing out (Dialing Pause, Dial-Out Limits) can be configured on the Dial-Out Parameters tab.
Configuring Dial-Out Connections
You can configure up to six different dial-out connections. Four of these can be active at the same time. Active connections are highlighted.
Enter a Connection Name for this connection. Only use letters, digits, dot, hyphen and underscore.
Enter the Phone Number the camera will use for dialing out. Your Internet provider or the administrator of the destination will provide the correct number.
For successfully dialing in, the camera needs to authenticate itself at the destination. Therefore, you need to enter a User Name and a Password. Your Internet provider or the administrator of the destination will provide this information.
In order to minimize telephone costs, the camera terminates the ISDN connection if it does not detect data traffic within the period of time specified here as Timeout.
At the right hand side of the dialog, you will find three option switches for every connection:
Deactivates the connection. The settings remain stored in the configuration.
Deletes this entry from the configuration.
|Set as default route
Sets the default route to this connection. For configuring additional routes, go to the Routing dialog. For additional information see the Routing help topic.
In order for the camera to use a certain connection, you need to either set a network route or the default route to this connection. Network routes (via the camera's Ethernet interface) can be configured only in the Routing dialog.
The camera can only obtain the IP addresses of the DNS name servers automatically via the one connection that is set as default route. When an ISDN connection is used as the default route, you can access computers via connections, for which just a network route is set, only with an IP address.
When you have activated the BOOTP/DHCP option in the Ethernet Interface dialog, the Default Route is always set to the Ethernet Interface.
Storing the Configuration
Click on the Set button to save your settings until the camera is rebooted.
Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
In order to enable these settings, you need to reboot the camera!
