ICDDNS is a Dynamic DNS is a service that is provided with IC REALTIME recorders and cameras. This helps to solve the issue where clients have a Dynamic WAN IP Address.
Dynamic DNS (Domain Name System) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS), often in real time, with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information.
Registering an ICDDNS Domain
In order to register an ICDDNS domain, the process is done through the device. In the case of a recorder, it can be done through the local monitor attached, web interface, or through SMARTICRSS Desktop Remote Client Software. If it is a camera it can only be done through the cameras web interface or SMARTICRSS Desktop Remote Client Software.
Step 1: Open Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the recorder/camera (default is http://192.168.1.108 or http://192.168.1.199) In most cases the recorders and cameras will be on DHCP and will grab a new address when being plugged into the network. You can go to our support page and download our ICIP|DVR|NVR Finder Utility or log into the recorder and navigate to the network settings to determine the IP address. Once on this page please log into the recorder’s admin account. Default username: admin password: admin.
