For SharpV cameras that use the Security Center (legacy) extension to connect to Security Center, if either the SharpV or the LPR Manager role is behind a Network address translation (NAT) device, additional configuration is required.

The SharpV is behind a NAT

  • If the SharpV manages the connection:

    In this case, the SharpV connection to Security Center is forced using the This unit manages the connection to Security Center setting in the Sharp Portal.

    Configure port forwarding to forward the port of the NAT to the IP address and port 8001 (control port) of the SharpV.

  • If the LPR Manager role manages the connection:

    The SharpV does not support the legacy extension when the LPR Manager role manages the connection.

The LPR Manager role is behind a NAT

In this case, you must configure port forwarding to point to the listening port of the LPR Manager. For example, if port 1234 is available on the NAT, configure port forwarding to point to port 8731 (listening port) on the LPR Manager.

  • When adding the SharpV to the LPR Manager using the Create a unit wizard, enter the IP address and port of the SharpV.

  • The listening port is defined in the Live settings on the LPR Manager’s Properties tab.
