If your Security Desk workstation is on the Federation™ host network and has direct access to the Media Router and redirectors on the federated system, use this network configuration.

IMPORTANT: The following scenario explains one possible network configuration for Security Center Federation™. Your requirements might differ depending on the number of servers you have, your network specifications, and how you route video.

For more information, see your network administrator or contact Genetec™ Technical Support.

Assumptions about your setup

  • The Federation™ host is federating one remote system on a different network.
  • You are logged on to the Directory of the Federation™ host from a Security Desk workstation on the same network.
  • The Media Router and redirector on the federated system are accessible from your Security Desk workstation, so you are receiving video from the redirector on the federated system.
  • No public IPs are required.

Architecture overview

Your system setup looks like this:

Network view on Federation™ host

In this scenario, the networks on the Federation™ host system are configured in the Network view task as follows:

  • The main network for the Federation™ host system is called Network.
  • Because the redirector on the federated system is accessible from the Security Desk workstation, an additional network called Workstation is configured which specifies the IPv4 address prefix of the workstation. To ensure that video is routed directly from the federated redirector to the workstation, the federated network (VM16930 - Security Center Federation™) is configured as an end point.
  • The federated network (VM16930 - Security Center Federation™) has the Workstation network configured as an end point.

Network view on federated system

In this scenario, the networks on the federated system are configured in the Network view task as follows:

  • There is no special configuration in the Network view task.
