Geovision Webcam Server Guide
The Geovision Webcam Server is accessed using the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the Geovision GV System. Whenever you access the internet, your PC is assigned an IP address.
However, the Webcam Server requires your Geovision Surveillance system to have an "always-on" internet connection, namely ADSL / Broadband.
If you have a fixed IP address (i.e. one the always remains the same), you can enter this into the address bar of Internet Explorer and connect to your cameras. Quite often, you will have a
dynamic IP address (i.e. one that may change every day/week or whenever you connect to the Internet). Geovision has developed a software solution to cope with dynamic IP, Dynamic DNS which is included with every Geovision system.
Dynamic DNS will continually update a direct DNS address to point to your Geovision Webcam Server as the IP changes. This DNS address will be in the form:
[name of your choosing].dipmap.com
So if you registered your Geovision System using Dynamic DNS as webcamserver, you would access your Geovision system and view your cameras using Internet Explorer and entering the web address:
