This section lists the settings found in the Network Properties tab, in the Network view task.

In the Properties tab, you can define the network characteristics and routing information.
Data transmission capabilities for streaming live video on the network.
Unicast TCP
Unicast (one-to-one) communication using TCP protocol is the most common mode of communication. It is supported by all IP networks, but it is also the least efficient method for transmitting video.
Unicast UDP
Unicast (one-to-one) communication using UDP protocol. Because UDP is a connectionless protocol, it works better for live video transmission. When the network traffic is busy, UDP is much less likely to cause choppy video than TCP. A network that supports unicast UDP necessarily supports unicast TCP.
Multicast is the most efficient transmission method for live video. It allows a video stream to be transmitted once over the network to be received by as many destinations as necessary. The gain could be very significant if there are many destinations. A network supporting multicast necessarily supports unicast UDP and unicast TCP.
NOTE: Multicast requires specialized routers and switches. Make sure you confirm this with your IT department before setting the capabilities to multicast.
IPv4 address prefix
IPv4 has two display modes. Click to select the preferred display mode.
Subnet display
This mode displays the IPv4 subnet mask as four bytes.
CIDR block display
The Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CDIR) mode displays the IPv4 subnet mask as a number of bits.
IPv6 address prefix
Version 6 IP address prefix for your network. Your network must support IPv6 and you must enable the option Use IPv6 on all your servers using Server Admin.
Public servers
You only need to specify the proxy server when Network Address Translation (NAT) is used between your configured networks. The proxy server must be a server known to your system and must have a public port and address configured on your firewall.
Lists the routes between every two networks on your system, and the route capabilities.
