AXIS Q7411 Video Encoder
SOCKS is a networking proxy protocol. The Axis product can be congured to use a SOCKS server to reach networks on the other
side of a rewall or proxy server. This functionality is useful if the Axis product is located on a local network behind a rewall, and
notications, uploads, alarms, etc need to be sent to a destination outside the local network (for example the Internet).
SOCKS is congured under System Options > Network > SOCKS. For more information, see the online help
QoS (Quality of Service)
QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees a certain level of a specied resource to selected trafc on a network. A QoS-aware network
prioritizes network trafc and provides a greater network reliability by controlling the amount of bandwidth an application may use.
The QoS settings are congured under System Options > Network > QoS. Using DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint) values, the
Axis product can mark different types of trafc.
Live audio DSCP will be equal to live video DSCP if H.264 over RTSP is used.
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows remote management of network devices. An SNMP community is the
group of devices and management station running SNMP. Community names are used to identify groups.
AXIS Video MIB (Management Information Base) for video hardware can be used to monitor Axis-specic, hardware-related
issues that may need administrative attention. For more information about AXIS Video MIB and to download MIB les, go to
To enable and congure SNMP in the Axis product, go to the System Options > Network > SNMP page.
Depending on the level of security required, select the version on SNMP to use.
Traps are used by the Axis product to send messages to a management system on important events and status changes. Check Enable
traps and enter the IP address where the trap message should be sent and the Trap community that should receive the message.
If HTTPS is enabled, SNMP v1 and SNMP v2c should be disabled.
Traps for SNMP v1/v2 are used by the Axis product to send messages to a management system on important events and status
changes. Check Enable traps and enter the IP address where the trap message should be sent and the Trap community that
should receive the message.
The following traps are available:
• Cold start
• Warm start
• Link up
• Authentication failed
All AXIS Video MIB traps are enabled when SNMP v1/v2c traps are enabled. It is not possible to turn on or off specic traps.
SNMP v3 provides encryption and secure passwords. To use traps with SNMP v3, an SNMP v3 management application is required.
To use SNMP v3, HTTPS must be enabled, see HTTPS on page 48. To enable SNMP v3, check the box and provide the initial user
