Open the Routing dialog to define the routes to be used by the camera for connecting to different networks. Connections via the Ethernet interface can be used as well as ISDN data connections.
In general, the camera can only send network data using a connection previously configured in the Ethernet Interface and ISDN Data Connections (Dial-In Connection or Dial-Out Connections tabs) dialogs.
|Note:||Make sure that you create a route for every ISDN dial-out connection; otherwise the camera does not dial out.|
A network is defined by the network address and the network mask. For example, by factory default the camera is configured to an IP address within the network
10.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 (network address/network mask).
Networks are connected through gateways. This may be an ISDN router or a special computer within the network.
In order for each computer within the network to know if and how it can connect to computers in other networks, you need to configure routes. A route consists of the following information:
Select the connection to be used by default. In general, this is the connection to your Internet Service Provider or to the closest gateway.
If you select the Ethernet Interface connection, you need to enter the IP address of the Gateway. Valid gateway IP addresses need to be accessible within the camera's local network (as defined in the Ethernet Interface dialog).
|Note:||If you have activated the BOOTP/DHCP option in the Ethernet Interface dialog, the Default Route is always set to the Ethernet Interface with the Gateway IP Address being determined automatically.|
If you select an ISDN Dial-Out Connection, the camera accepts the DNS server's IP address proposed by the service provider.
Enter the routes to other networks.
|Note:||If you have selected an ISDN connection, you cannot access computers within this network using the symbolic DNS name but only via their IP address.|
|inactive||Deactivates this route entry.|
|remove||Removes this route from the configuration.|

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.
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 store the configuration and reboot the camera!
