INTERNET DIAL-OUT CONNECTION (PPP)

If the primary connection to the Internet will be a dial-up modem, enter your ISP (Internet Service Provider) account information here.

INTERNET DIAL-OUT CONNECTION

Enable to use an external modem to dial the Internet.

BAUD RATE

This represents the speed or baud rate at which the NetCamSC will communicate with the external modem. For most dial-up accounts, a baud rate of 38400 or 19200 works best.

Default: 38400

INITIALIZATION STRING

This is a string that configures your modem before dialing the Internet.

Default: AT

PHONE NUMBER

The phone number of the ISP (Internet Service Provider). If required, you can embed special characters in the phone number.

, = pause one second
# = same as # button on phone
* = same as * button on phone

Example: *70,555-1212 (the *70, turns off the call waiting feature and pauses before dialing the ISP)

TIMEOUT

The NetCamSC will attempt to dial up the ISP for the specified number of seconds. If unable to connect during this time period, it will stop and start over again.

Default: 180

USERNAME

The username or login assigned to you by your ISP.

PASSWORD

The password assigned to you by your ISP.

DEFAULT CONNECTION

Enabling this option makes the ISP dial-out connection the default connection to the Internet.

Default: On

ALWAYS UP

If enabled, the NetCamSC will attempt to stay continuously connected to the Internet. If disconnected, it will automatically attempt to reconnect. If configured to upload images to a server via FTP, it is not necessary to enable this option -- the NetCamSC will automatically attempt to dial into the Internet when an image is scheduled to upload if dial-out is enabled.

Default: Off

SEND CR AFTER LOGIN

This advanced ISP option sends a CR (Carriage Return) after logging in. Most ISP's do not require this.

Default: Off

SHELL LOGIN

This advanced ISP option performs a shell login. Most ISP's do not require this.

Default: Off
