Since the interface settings are sometimes rather complex, checking if a specific setting works may become a rather tedious task. In order to check specific connections, the camera provides several tests in the Test Current Network Configuration dialog.

You should run all tests one by one starting from the top and carefully analyze the test results. While the test are running, the test output is displayed in the small popup window. The test result is displayed in the dialog itself.

Make sure that the camera has been rebooted after you have changed the configuration before running the tests.
ping commands, firewalls or other network devices may block these IP packets. Ask your network administrator if you suspect this
