Internal IP Protocol External Port Internal Port

USB Camera 1 Port: 9080(Use a value automatically assigned) (Encouraged: 9080 ~ 9089)

USB Camera 1 : Because, the USB camera is connected to Network Storage, it is using the same IP address as the Network Storage... Therefore, the internal port number must use a different port number than the number 80 port, which the Network Storage is using... That is, you should use the port number that is automatically set...

It is recommended that you use hard disks with the same storage capacity and company when configuring volume...

1... Individual disc(No Raid) Volume

2... RAID1 Mirroring Volume

This is a technique to configure volume for each hard disk without RAID configuration... It is similar to the use of hard disks in regular PCs... If the hard disk is damaged, the hard disks data will be lost...

This is a technique to make a same copy of hard disk data... Even if the hard disk gets damaged, hard disk consisted of volume has the same content, thus it will have less storage space but an excellent recovery rate... The volumes storage capacity replicates all data onto the hard disk, so it has the smallest storage capacity among hard disks consisting of RAID1... Because it prioritizes restoration, it is most appropriate to save important data on it...

It is a technique for using multiple hard disks in parallel as one hard disk... Because it saves data on each hard disk in parallel, it has an excellent performance in reading multiple small sized files... In order to maximize storage space, it does not record backup information in case of hard disk damage... Hence, the data that was stored in volume of the damaged hard disk will be lost... The storage space of volume is the total of all hard disk storage space... It is used for quick data access and maximizing volume storage space, thus inappropriate for saving important data...
