  1. Log on to the Axis controller web portal.
    For more information, see the Axis documentation.
  2. Click Setup > Additional Controller Configuration > System Options > Security > IP Address Filter.
  3. Select the Enable IP address filtering option, and select Allow from the list.
  4. Click Apply.
  5. In the Filtered IP Addresses list, add the IP address of the Synergis™ unit and the IP address of the administrative workstation that must log on to the Axis controller web portal.
  6. Under System options, click Network > TCP/IP > Advanced, and disable both FTP server and RTSP server options.
