Use the VB Initial Setting Tool to configure the camera 
network. 
To launch the VB Initial Setting Tool, double-click the 
[VB Initial Setting Tool] icon on the desktop.
The Tool will automatically detect the camera 
connected to the network and display the camera's 
MAC address, IP address and model name. 
The factory setting IP address is set to 192.168.100.1. 
The MAC address can be found on the label on the 
camera (“Installation Guide” > “Part Names”). 
To use a setting other than the default gateway 
setting, clear the [Enter a default gateway address] 
checkbox. 
After settings are complete, click [OK]. 
Setup progress is shown in the window. 
Note
• To ensure security, be sure to change the administrator 
password (p. 42)
• Contact your System Administrator for the appropriate IP 
address, subnet mask and gateway address.
