    „Registering the Top Page of the Camera as a 
    Trusted Site
    In Internet Explorer 9 or greater and Windows Server 2008/
    Windows Server 2012, the security level for Internet sites and 
    intranet sites on Internet Explorer is set to [High] by default. 
    Thus, when accessing the Admin Viewer/VB Viewer, the 
    cameras Setting Page or the Admin Tools, a content block 
    dialog box appears and the page fails to display correctly. 
    To correct this problem, follow the procedure below to 
    register the top page as a trusted site. 
    The following dialog box appears. 
    The [Trusted sites] dialog box appears. Note that even when the content block dialog box does 
    not appear, JavaScript is sometimes disabled under the 
    standard security settings, which may limit operations on 
    the setting page and the Admin Viewer/VB Viewer. 
    Register the page as a trusted site as this automatically 
    enables JavaScript settings. 
    If the content block dialog box does not appear, follow the 
    procedure below to display the [Trusted Sites] dialog box. 
    The [Trusted sites] dialog box appears.

    use the VB Initial Setting Tool to temporarily configure an IPv4 
    static address that can communicate with the computer. Then, 
    in [Network] on the setting page, change [IPv4 Address Setting 
    Method] to [Auto (DHCP)] in the [IPv4] area (p. 37), or 
    configure an IPv6 address.

    camera with the VB Viewer. When doing so, set the 
    computer network settings to comply with the IP address 
    and subnet mask settings on the camera. 
    The viewer launches and displays the camera video.

    settings in the computer are configured for the IP address 
    and subnet that are set in the camera.
