    Question   What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?   Answer   This article explains briefly the basics of SNMP. Declares the basic terms of the protocol. It also explains what part of the protocol is supported by Bosch cameras. Basics of SNMP and terms. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a common protocol to monitor the health  status of a system. Such a monitoring system typically has a central management server that  collect all the data from the system’s compatible components and devices.  SNMP provides two methods to gain the system health status: –The network management server can poll the health status of a device via SNMP requests. –Devices can actively notify the network management server about their system health status in case of error or alarm conditions through sending SNMP traps to the SNMP server. Such traps must be configured inside the device. Details how to configure Bosch camera to send SNMP traps - How to activate the SNMP and configure sending SNMP traps from Bosch cameras?   SNMP also allows configuration of some variables inside devices and components. The information, which messages a device supports and which traps it can send, is derived from the Management Information Base, the so-called MIB file, a file that is delivered with a product for easy integration into a network monitoring system. There are three different version of the SNMP protocol: –SNMP version 1 SNMP version 1 (SNMPv1) is the initial implementation of the SNMP protocol. It is widely used and has become the de facto standard protocol for network management and monitoring. But SNMPv1 has become under threat due to its lack of security features. It only uses ‘community strings’ as a kind of passwords, which are transmitted in clear text.Thus, SNMPv1 shall only be used when it can be assured that the network is physically protected against unauthorized access. –SNMP version 2 SNMP version 2 (SNMPv2) included improvements in security and confidentiality, amongst others, and introduced a bulk request to retrieve large amounts of data in a single request. However, its security approach was considered way too complex,hindering its acceptance. Thus, it was soon pushed out by version SNMPv2c, which equals SNMPv2 but without its controversial security model, reverting to the community-based method from SNMPv1instead, similarly lacking security. –SNMP version 3 SNMP version 3 (SNMPv3) mainly adds security and remote configuration enhancements. These include improvements on confidentiality by encryption of packets, message integrity and authentication. It also addresses large-scale deployment of SNMP.   Bosch cameras SNMP To check what SNMP version does a particular camera support, check the data sheet of the device. (Find it under your device in the product catalogue - https://www.boschsecurity.com/xc/en/product-catalog/) since FW 6.40 onwards Bosch devices support SNMP v1 legacy and SNMP v3

    🛈 Port Forwarding Allows remote computers (for example, computers on the Internet) to connect to a specific computer or service within a private local-area network (LAN). In a typical residential network, nodes obtain Internet access through a DSL or cable modem connected to a router or network address translator (NAT/NAPT). Hosts on the private network are connected to an Ethernet switch or communicate via a wireless LAN. The NAT device's external interface is configured with a public IP address. The computers behind the router, on the other hand, are invisible to hosts on the Internet as they each communicate only with a private IP address. When configuring port forwarding, the network administrator sets aside one port number on the gateway for the exclusive use of communicating with a service in the private network, located on a specific host. External hosts must know this port number and the address of the gateway to communicate with the network-internal service. Often, the port numbers of well-known Internet services, such as port number 80 for web services (HTTP), are used in port forwarding, so that common Internet services may be implemented on hosts within private networks.

    A transfer of the license from the Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS) to the Bosch Remote Portal is required for every BVMS system to be upgraded from 10.1 to 11.0 Starting with BVMS 11.0 the license activation will be done via the Bosch Remote Portal. To upgrade an existing system, the BVMS licenses need to be migrated from the old licensing system, Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS), to the new licensing system available in Bosch Remote Portal. This article describes the steps that need to be followed when upgrading a system to BVMS 11.0. Prerequisites for upgrading a system to BVMS 11.0: Existing license activated in SLMS Valid Software Assurance (SMA) PRO Valid account on Bosch Remote Portal   ❗ ❗ ❗  IMPORTANT In BVMS 10.x the computer signature is the link to the license in the SLMS When upgrading to 11.x the computer signature becomes obsolete and the new Remote Portal tool no longer takes it into consideration The software Order ID is transferred in the background from SLMS to the Remote Portal This allows the activation of BVMS 11.x in the Remote Portal using the new identifiers for the Management Server Hardware called System Fingerprint, contained in the System Info file.

    In terms of license activation process and compared to other versions of BVMS (<v11.0), the Bosch Remote Portal replaces the Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS), starting with BVMS v11.0. A new user registration is required in Bosch Remote Portal and the mandatory information for license activation is the System Info file (generated in the Configuration Client) and the Software order ID (received from the Bosch order desk by e-mail → ordering remains unchanged: still utilizes the Bosch Order Desk) The remote portal will then provide a   "Activation file" which includes all activation details. It needs to be uploaded to the newly installed BVMS system. The activation process defines the start date of the software maintenance agreement (SMA - software assurance) period. The end date is shown on the License manager of the BVMS Configuration Client after activation NEW:  Software version-less ordering process: Ordering a BVMS Base or Expansion licenses is not software dependent anymore starting with BVMS 11.0 upwards. During license activation only "non End of Life" (EOL) versions are assigned to the license.   Follow this article and find out the steps that need to be performed when activating a new BVMS 11.0 license.

    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.

    RTSP and multicast streaming There are different ways for a client to receive a multicast stream: the client can connect to the camera and request a multicast stream. In this case you would see a connection in the dashboard. If not checked, it requires at least one connected client to have the camera provide the stream into the multicast group. Clients who just joined would receive no stream if there is no client connected. the client can join an existing multicast stream without connecting to the camera. It must know the multicast group. You would not see this client on the dashboard. The streaming flag tells the camera if it should feed its stream into this multicast group, regardless of a connected client. This is an option if there are many, many clients possibly connecting to the same camera/stream. There is no difference in data amount if streaming is checked or not as long as there is at least one multicast client connected to this multicast group. Below you find a way how to pass a special connection string to request a multicast stream via RTSP from a BOSCH IP camera or IP encoder.

    Sometimes it is preferable to have a different “user mode” during the day then in the night. Our cameras by default have the option to switch the user mode e.g. triggered by the camera D/N switch over. But also other triggers can be chosen. Below an example how to setup the “user mode” switching triggered by the D/N switch over.
