Network Camera

Setting of Image Transfer using FTP

Showing examples to transfer images using FTP from the KX-HCM10.

Problems

I want to open Network Camera images to the public. But I don't want to access my Network Camera directly.

Solution

Transfer images to a Web page directory from Network Camera via FTP. By doing this, you can display images on your Web pages without accessing Network Camera. When transfer images in the specified frequency in the Timer mode, the images are updated automatically.

* Transferring only still images via FTP.

Setup

  1. Precondition
    Network Camera must have already been connected to the Internet. When using a router, Network Camera must be able to use FTP over the router.
  2. Confirming FTP server environment of your provider
    Confirming FTP server environment of your provider Confirming FTP server environment of your provider. A provider calls an FTP server for Web page a "Web page server".
    Web page user name yourid
    Web page password yourPASS
    Web page server name www3.your.provider .jp
    Directory that stores Web page data homepage
    URL http://www.your.provider.jp/~yourid
    * The aforementioned user name, password and address are dummy.
  3. Confirming FTP server environment of your provider
    1. Access Network Camera

      Network Camera top

      To access Setup Page.
      Enter
      "http://IP Address (or URL) :Port No./config.html" on the web browser and press [Enter].
      When port number is 80 (default), you do not need to enter port number. Then Setup Page appears.

    4. Set time to transfer images. Click [Always], since images are always transferred.

      Click [Always]

    5. Select "Image Resolution" and "Image Quality". Select Image Buffer Frequency Setting. Since 1 image per 20 seconds for refresh interval is to set up, set up 3 images per minute.

      Select Image Setting and Image Buffer Frequency Setting

      • (*)The transfer interval depends on the environment, such as the throughput of the Internet or intranet, the response of the sever, and the model of router used. We recommend you to set up an longer interval than 5 images per minute under an xDSL environment.
    6. Select FTP at Transfer method, and set up the FTP environment of your provider that is confirmed at Step 2.
      • Web page server name -> Server Address or Host Name
      • Web page user name -> Login ID
      • Web page password -> Password
      The image file name is "kxhcm1.jpg". Since the provider directory that stores Web page data is "homepage"(*1), specify "homepage/kxhcm1" in "Upload FileName".
      Since the extension, ".jpg", is assigned automatically, you do not need to specify. Select "Over write" to browse on the Web page.

      Select FTP at Transfer method

      • (*1) For some providers, a home directory for users may be the directory that stores homepage data. In that case, specify "kxhcm1" in "Upload File Name". (When writing a file in a home directory for users.)

    8. The setup is finished when "Success!" appears.

    <HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE>
    <META content="text/html; charset=shift_jis" http-equiv=Content-Type>
