Enabling and Disabling Network Services

For security purposes, an administrator may need to stop one or more network services from accessing the Makito X. From the Services page, you can enable and disable network services, including HTTP, SSH, Telnet, SNMP, VF, Talkback, RTSP, ONVIF, and Haivision EMS.

On the Makito X with SDI, you can also enable bi-directional Serial Pass-Through for controlling serially attached devices such as PTZ controlled cameras. Both RS-232 and RS422 are supported.


In order to optimize your encoder’s performance, it is recommended that only the required network services be enabled. Please review the network services to make sure services used for your application are enabled or disabled as appropriate. For encoders integrated within a Furnace environment, “VF” must be enabled.


Take care not to disable all network services; you must at least keep http (Web interface), telnet, or ssh active. Otherwise you will lose access control to the unit, and the only way to re-enable these services is by a Factory Reset (For details, see Resetting the Encoder).

To enable or disable network services:

  1. On the Administration page, click Settings on the navigation bar and Services on the sidebar. 
    The Services page opens displaying the current status of network services.

    Services Page


    The On-Off button color indicates the service status:

    GreenService is operating.

    Service is not operating correctly, for example, telnet daemon failed to start. 


    Problems were encountered performing a service, for example, EMS failed to pair.

    Grey Service is disabled.
  2. To enable or disable a service, toggle the associated Service button to On or Off. For details, see Services Settings.
  3. To enable Audio Talkback (to allow end users to “talk back” to individuals at the video source/encoder), toggle the Talkback button to On.
    The Talkback port number and Button Mode are configured on the remote device(s) such as the Makito X decoder.
  4. To enable Serial Pass-Through, toggle the Serial Pass-Through button to On. For more information, see Configuring Serial Metadata Sources.


    If the COM1 serial port is used for metadata capture, and all remote management interfaces (HTTP, telnet, SSH, and SNMP) are disabled, the only way to re-enable these services will be by a Factory Reset. (For details, see Resetting the Encoder.) Once the serial port is dedicated for metadata capture, it is no longer usable for CLI management.

  5. To enable the ONVIF service, toggle the ONVIF button to On and click Configure. For details, see Enabling ONVIF Support and Milestone Integration
  6. To pair the encoder with Haivision-EMS, toggle the Haivision-EMS button to On and click Configure. See Pairing the Decoder with Haivision EMS.

The service(s) will be stopped or started immediately. (You do not need to click Apply). 


Network services can also be enabled/disabled using the CLI service command.
