PXL_IP_UNKNOWN_ASSIGNMENT

The IP address assignment is unknown.

PXL_IP_DHCP_ASSIGNED

The camera received its IP address from a dynamic host configuration protocol(DHCP) server.

PXL_IP_LLA_ASSIGNED

The camera is using a link-local address (LLA).

PXL_IP_STATIC_PERSISTENT

The camera is using an IP address assigned to it by a user. This IP address will persist even after power has been removed from the camera.

PXL_IP_STATIC_VOLATILE

The camera is using an IP address assigned to it by a user. This IP address will be lost once power has been removed from the camera.


When a PixeLINK IP camera is powered up, it will first check if it has a persistent static IP address assigned. If it does, it will use this IP address.


If it does not have a persistent static IP address, the camera will try to use DHCP to get an address. If it receives a reply from a DHCP server, it will use this address until power is removed.


If a DHCP server cannot be found, the camera will use link-local addressing to determine an IP address, and this address will be used until power is removed.


The CameraIpAssignmentType field of the CAMERA_ID_INFO has the IP address type for an IP camera.


It is possible to assign an address to a camera -- either volatile or persistent -- using PxLSetCameraIpAddress.
