To receive input pin events from your units in Security Center, the Archiver needs to open a TCP port for its HTTP server. The default port is 8008; however, if this port is already in use on the Archiver role machine, you must change the default port.

Procedure

  1. On the Archiver role machine, navigate to the installation directory, located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\DVR Software 5.2\Extensions\Drivers\ on 32-bit machines, and C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\DVR Software 5.2\Extensions\Drivers\ on 64-bit machines.
  2. Open the EventHttpServerConfiguration.xml file in Notepad.
    Text similar to the following is displayed:
    <EventHttpServerConfiguration>
       <HttpServerPort>8008</HttpServerPort>
    </EventHttpServerConfiguration>
  3. Change the value of the HttpServerPort from 8008 to something else, such as 8009.
    NOTE: The value for the HttpServerPort must be the same for all standby Archivers associated with the unit.
  4. Save the file, and restart the Archiver.
