    This article explains how BVMS can be configured to connect to an LDAP (or Microsoft Active Directory) and use it as a base for user authentication.   BVMS is able to function in a (Windows) domain-controlled environment. The BVMS (and related) services run under the local system account. If another (domain-controlled) account is used to run these services, their permissions level should be the same as the local system account. It is recommended to add the Windows server to the domain first (as a domain member), before installing the BVMS software. The BVMS configuration is independent from the domain configuration, however, crucial changes in the domain could break the connection between the BVMS system and the LDAP authentication mechanism.

    The Divar AN 3000/5000 features the ability to ping an IP address, thus allowing the technician to verify that the workstation that is to connect to the Divar can be seen on the network. Please note that this only checks the connection from the DIVAR to the Workstation. Ping operates by sending Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request packets to the target host and waiting for an ICMP echo reply. The program reports errors, packet loss, and a statistical summary of the results.

    An object moving or a low/ higher contrast scene can throw off the autofocus option, resulting in a soft focus or even not focus at all. Using manual focus is an obvious solution, but manual focus isn’t exactly easy to get sharp images. Manual focus requires a bit of know-how and some practice to get right. If you would like to improve the performance and get a sharp image, please see below how you can manually adjust the focus ring on a Dinion Thermal camera.

    In Cloud-based Services, different 'Actions' can be configured for automatic processing as well as manual action for the operators (Alarm Agents). There are 2 different options how an action is processed: An 'Automatic Action' is processed automatically when the related Service Scenario is performed. An 'Intervention Action' is executed manually by an operator from the Cloud-based Service Operator Interface. This note shows available actions in Cloud-based Services and provides a step by step instruction to configure these actions.   Step-by-step guide   1. Send e-mail "Send e-mail" sends an e-mail notification to the configured recipient(s). The action can be used as manual action for the operators (Intervention Action). The content of the alarm email can be configured to the customer's needs.   To configure a "Send e-mail" action, perform the following steps: 1. Open Cloud-based Services Configuration website (/config), log in as Integrator or Config Agent. 2. Enter the related Account. 3. Click tab 'Actions'. 4. Click '+' button to add an action. 5. Give the action a descriptive name and select 'Email'. 6. Type recipients, CC's, mail subject and message. Use the pull down to enter environment variables to the e-mail text. 7. Click 'Create'. 8. Add the action to a Service Scenario for processing.   2. Execute PTZ Command "Execute PTZ Command" starts an auxiliary command on a Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera.

    When working with previous versions of BVMS, remote connectivity was cumbersome due to the amount of port mapping that needed to be configured. BVMS 7.5 provides a new method of remote connectivity utilizing Secure Shell (SSH) Tunnelling. SSH Tunnelling constructs an encrypted tunnel established by an SSH protocol/socket connection. This encrypted tunnel can provide transport to both encrypted and un-encrypted traffic. The Bosch SSH implementation also utilizes Omni-Path protocol, which is a high performance low latency communications protocol developed by Intel. Key management The BVMS SSH service generates a private and public key when it is started for the first time. Both keys are saved in an encrypted file. When the BVMS SSH service restarts this file is detected and the private key is read.   Step-by-step guide   1.Configuration   A. Installation There is little to no configuration required for this feature to function. The SSH Service must be installed and running. If deploying a BVMS Pro system, insure the SSH Service is part of the installation process. Recording Appliances that ship with BVMS 7.5 should have the service pre-installed. Check your “Services”. If the service has not been installed, the install package can be run from the BVMS 7.5 downloadable install package. If working with a DIVAR IP Recording Appliance, the appliance “Installer Package” must be used.   B. Port mapping entry The primary configuration step is to configure one (1) port forwarding for the BVMS Central Server to utilize port 5322 for both internal and external connections. This is the only port mapping entry that needs to be made for the entire system. The image below shows a sample configuration.   2. Operation   A. Login with the Operator Client After the basic configuration is done, logging in via Operator Client is very intuitive: From the log menu, select the “Connection” drop down menu, then Select <New…> You will be prompted to enter an IP address or DNS host name. You will also notice a cheat guide below the entry menu that will assist with address entry. Addressing must be in the following format: ssh://IP or servername:5322. In the example we used: ssh://49.49.49.49:5322. After entering a properly formatted address, enter a valid user name and password. SSH users MUST have a password associated with their BVMS account. User accounts without a password cannot log in utilizing an SSH Connection.   B. Verification After connection is established via an SSH Tunnel, all communications between the BVMS Server (192.168.1.19) and a remote client (49.49.49.48) are encrypted. Below is a Wireshark Capture taken from the BVMS Server after a connection is established. C. Changing the SSH port Locate the SSH service configuration file in "C:\Program Files\Bosch\BVMS\bin" Open the configuration file and find the section below. Edit the value of the BvmsSshServicePort (the port should be unused) and restart the system.
