If you install the Storage Server and the Viewer on different computers, you must change the Windows Firewall settings on the computer used for the Storage Server.

The changes to the settings are already complete if you selected the [Add storage server programs to the Windows Firewall exception list.] check box during installation. If you did not select the above check box during installation, perform the following procedure to change the Windows Firewall settings.

The following settings are not required if you install the Storage Server and Viewer onto the same computer.

Security Level Setting

In Internet Explorer, the default security level setting for Internet or intranet sites in Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 is “High”. Therefore, you are not able to configure settings in the configuration or top page of the camera.

  • For details on registration with trusted sites, click [Learn more about Internet Explorer’s Enhanced Security Configuration] in the [Internet Options] dialog box and refer to the displayed summary.

  • JavaScript may be disabled in the standard security setting, even if a content block dialog box is not displayed. This may limit the operation of the setting page or the camera’s Viewer. The JavaScript setting is enabled automatically once trusted site registration is complete.
