If your Security Desk workstation is on the network of the federated system, use this network configuration for Security Center Federation™.

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 that is on the network of the federated system. For example, you are a manager connecting to the Directory of the head office from one of your store locations.
  • 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

To avoid unnecessary video redirection, you must ensure that federated video is received on your Security Desk workstation directly from the redirector on the federated system. 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.
  • An additional network is created for the Security Desk workstation that is physically located at the federated site, called Workstation.
  • The Workstation network and the federated network (VM16930 - Security Center Federation™) are nested under the main network and are configured as end points.
  • The Workstation network specifies the IPv4 address prefix of the workstation, and it has the main Network and the federated network (VM16930 - Security Center Federation™) configured as end points.
  • The federated network (VM16930 - Security Center Federation™) has the main Network and the Workstation network configured as end points.
