How to configure the IP camera network settings in C#

In this guide you can find information on how to configure the camera's network settings (IP, subnet, gateway, dns). To implement this example, you must have OZEKI Camera SDK installed, and a reference to OzekiSDK.dll should be added to your Visual Studio project.

How to configure the camera's network settings using C#?

To establish the connection properly between your application and an IP camera you should apply the same code snippet you have used in the example (How to connect to an IP camera device using C#?). Important: you should study this article in order to find out how to setup your Windows Forms/WPF Application correctly.

Getting started

To get started it is recomended to Download and Install the latest version of Ozeki Camera SDK. After installation you can find the example code discussed in this page with full source code in the following location on your harddisk:

Download Ozeki Camera SDK: http://www.camera-sdk.com/p_13-download-camera-onvif.html
Windows forms version: C:\Program Files\Ozeki\Ozeki SDK\examples.zip\Examples\Other\
Configure_Network_Settings_WF\Configure_Network_Settings_WF.sln
WPF version: C:\Program Files\Ozeki\Ozeki SDK\examples.zip\Examples\Other\
Configure_Network_Settings_WPF\Configure_Network_Settings_WPF.sln

To compile this example you will need Microsoft Visual Studio installed on your computer.

In addition to the methods discussed in the previous tutorials the additional methods of this example are the following:

First of all, when you connected a camera, you should clear the previous camera's network information by calling the ClearGUI() method:

textBox_IP.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_Host.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_Netmask.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_Gateway.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_DNS.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_NTP_IP.Text = String.Empty;

textBox_HTTP.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_HTTPS.Text = String.Empty;
textBox_RTSP.Text = String.Empty;
comboBox_HTTP.Items.Clear();
comboBox_HTTPS.Items.Clear();
comboBox_RTSP.Items.Clear();

After this, you can query the connected camera's current network settings in GetNetworkSettings() method by querying the _camera object NetworkManager.DefaultConfig properties (IPAddress, HostName, Netmask, DefaultGateway, DNS, NTP):

_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.IPAddress;
_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.HostName;
_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.Netmask;
_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.DefaultGateway;
_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.DNS;
_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.NTP.IPAddress;

And you can query HTTP, HTTPS, RTSP ports if your camera supports the different port settings:

_camera.NetworkManager.HttpPort.Port
_camera.NetworkManager.HttpsPort.Port
_camera.NetworkManager.RtspPort.Port

In the GUI you can choose between using DHCP and Manual settings by selecting the proper radio button. If you want to use DHCP settings, you have to check the Use DHCP radio button and click on the Apply button to set UseDHCP property to true value:

_camera.NetworkManager.DefaultConfig.UseDHCP = true;

It is also important to apply the configuration settings by calling your camera object's ApplyConfig() method:

_camera.NetworkManager.ApplyConfig();

If you choose the Manual settings radio button, you can set the above network properties by filling out the textboxes of the GUI and clicking to the Apply button.

Please note that none of the cancel and disconnect methods are included in the example because of the demonstrating intent and briefness of the article. The network settings are not supported in all IPcamera devices.

After the successful implementation of the functions and the GUI elements, the application will work properly. Pressing the connect button will load the image of the IP camera device connected to your PC into the panel that you can see on the picture.

Below you can find the code that belongs to the interface of the previously presented application. With the help of this section your Windows Forms Application will be able to work properly.

FAQ

Below you can find the answers for the most frequently asked questions related to this topic:

  1. How can I get the URL of the camera?

    You can get the URL from the producer of the camera. (In the 10th tutorial you can find information on how to create an own IP camera discoverer program.)

  2. I have not managed to build the solution. How to solve it?

    • Please set the Target framework property of the project to .NET 4.0.
    • You should add the System.Drawing.dll and the OzekiSDK.dll to the references of the solution.
    • Please import the missing classes.
