System Options
The HTTPS port used by the Axis product can be changed under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced. In addition to
the default setting, which is 443, any port in the range 1024–65535 can be used.
To enable HTTPS, go to System Options > Security > HTTPS. For more information, see HTTPS on page 48.
NAT traversal (port mapping) for IPv4
A network router allows devices on a private network (LAN) to share a single connection to the Internet. This is done by forwarding
network trafc from the private network to the “outside”, that is, the Internet. Security on the private network (LAN) is increased
since most routers are pre-congured to stop attempts to access the private network (LAN) from the public network (Internet).
Use NAT traversal when the Axis product is located on an intranet (LAN) and you wish to make it available from the other (WAN) side
of a NAT router. With NAT traversal properly congured, all HTTP trafc to an external HTTP port in the NAT router is forwarded to
the product.
NAT traversal is congured under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced.
For NAT traversal to work, this must be supported by the router. The router must also support UPnP
In this context, router refers to any network routing device such as a NAT router, Network router, Internet Gateway,
Broadband router, Broadband sharing device, or a software such as a rewall.
Enable/Disable - When enabled, the Axis product attempts to congure port mapping in a NAT router on your network, using UPnP
Note that UPnP
must be enabled in the product (see System Options > Network > UPnP).
Use manually selected NAT router - Select this option to manually select a NAT router and enter the IP address for the router in
the eld. If no router is specied, the product automatically searches for NAT routers on your network. If more than one router is
found, the default router is selected.
Alternative HTTP port - Select this option to manually dene an external HTTP port. Enter a port in the range 1024–65535. If the
port eld is empty or contains the default setting, which is 0, a port number is automatically selected when enabling NAT traversal.
An alternative HTTP port can be used or be active even if NAT traversal is disabled. This is useful if your NAT router does not
support UPnP and you need to manually congure port forwarding in the NAT router.
If you attempt to manually enter a port that is already in use, another available port is automatically selected.
When the port is selected automatically it is displayed in this eld. To change this, enter a new port number and click Save.
The FTP server running in the Axis product enables upload of new rmware, user applications, etc. The FTP server can be disabled
under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced.
This FTP server has nothing to do with the product’s ability to transfer images via FTP to other locations and servers.
The RTSP server running in the Axis product allows a connecting client to start an H.264 stream. The RTSP port number can be
changed under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced. The default port is 554.
H.264 video streams will not be available if the RTSP server is disabled.
