1   Introduction

The Carrida dragon camera comes with DHCP network configuration by default. This makes it easier for you to use it in your local network during initial setup and installation. If you need to configure the camera to a static IP address, you need to do this from the command line terminal for all Carrida SW versions 4.6.x.

Use the following steps to setup a static IP4 address on the camera.

Make sure that you double check the new settings so that you do not lose access to the camera with a wrong configuration.

=> Access the terminal interface on the camera using SSH as admin user.

=> Backup /etc/network/interfaces file

sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /root/etc/network/interfaces.1

=> Edit the /etc/network/interfaces file so that it contains the new settings. You need to be admin user.

# the Dragon caminterface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

# your new configuration
address aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway aaa.bbb.ccc.eee
dns-nameservers aaa.bbb.ccc.eee

=> Restart the camera to make the new settings effective
