Basic TCP/IP Settings
The Axis product supports IP version 4 and IP version 6. Both versions can be enabled simultaneously, and at least one version
must always be enabled.
IPv4 Address Conguration
By default, the Axis product is set to use IPv4 (IP version 4) and to obtain the IP address automatically via DHCP. The IPv4 settings are
congured under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Basic.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Conguration Protocol) allows network administrators to centrally manage and automate the assignment of
IP addresses. DHCP should only be enabled if using dynamic IP address notication, or if the DHCP can update a DNS server. It is
then possible to access the Axis product by name (host name).
If DHCP is enabled and the product cannot be accessed, run AXIS IP Utility to search the network for connected Axis products, or reset
the product to the factory default settings (see page 60) and then perform the installation again.
To use a static IP address, check Use the following IP address and specify the IP address, subnet mask and default router.
IPv6 Address Conguration
If IPv6 (IP version 6) is enabled, the Axis product will receive an IP address according to the conguration in the network router.
To enable IPv6, go to System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Basic. Other settings for IPv6 should be congured in the network router.
The product’s IP address can be assigned using ARP and Ping. For instructions, see Assign IP Address Using ARP/Ping on page 50.
The ARP/Ping service is enabled by default but is automatically disabled two minutes after the product is started, or as soon as an IP
address is assigned. To re-assign IP address using ARP/Ping, the product must be restarted to enable ARP/Ping for an additional
To disable the service, go to System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Basic and clear the option Enable ARP/Ping setting of IP address.
Pinging the product is still possible when the service is disabled.
Assign IP Address Using ARP/Ping
The product's IP address can be assigned using ARP/Ping. The command must be issued within 2 minutes of connecting power.
