What is the IPCManager?

As for encoders, IPCManager is just one tool designed for below:
  • Searching encoders in the attached network;
  • Quickly modifying IP addresses in batch;
  • Upgrading the latest firmware for encoders in batch;
  • Restoring the encoder to the default factory settings;
  • Rebooting the encoder;
  • Modifying the password;
Tips: Usually it's only designed for the above features, it's not workable to do more settings like wireless connection via IPCManager.
