[KBA-78661] How to change the video unit discovery port on Bosch units installed with firmware 6.40 or later

This article explains how to change the discovery port on Bosch video units that have been installed with firmware version 6.40 or later.

Summary

You cannot change the video unit discovery port using Telnet because Bosch removed Telnet access to their video units as of firmware version 6.40.

Workaround

You can change the discovery port in one of the following ways.

If the Bosch unit has already been added in Security Center:

In Config Tool, click Unit > Properties > Discovery port.

Using the Unit enrollment tool:
  1. From the Unit enrollment tool, click Start discovery.
  2. After the unit has been discovered, right-click the unit and select Change discovery port.

Using a browser:
  1. Open an internet browser window and enter the following HTTP command: http://{IP}/rcp.xml?commnand=0x0976&type=T_WORD&direction=WRITE&num=0&payload=1800. Replace the {IP} with the unit's IP address and replace the payload value with the desired discovery port number.
  2. Restart the video unit. You can restart the unit by using the HTTP command: http://{IP}/reset, where {IP} is the unit's IP address.
