To receive motion events from Sentry 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.


  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:
  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.
