The default IP address of the CM4x and CM7x series is 192.168.5.163, but if you need to let the DHCP server assign automatically an IP address to the camera you will need to enable the DHCP option in the camera web gui (NETWORK tab > Ethernet) and press the SAVE button. Then reboot the camera to take effect (SYSTEM > Reboot)


Note that if DHCP is enabled and no DHCP server is available, the camera will be available on its assigned IP address (shown on the screen -only on HDMI/SDI outputs- at start-up) or to a fallback IP address between 169.254.0.0 and 169.254.255.255.



It is also possible to enable DHCP by HTTP API (for more details, refer to the camera User manual > How to use HTTP API):
