    If you are not using a DHCP server, the camera chooses a free IPaddress in your network. You can
    set a fixed IPaddress later in the cameras settings if needed.

    To access the firmware get the ip from the server or any station and in IE write: http:// but you have to change the ip and keep the last :8080

    Ok i figured it out. The IP camera uses BOOTP to receive a IP address from DHCP. This means you need to connect the UTP cable before connecting the power.

    That way it will receive a IP and can be accessed via the internet browser.

    thanks for you help.
