Question about D-Link Securicam Network DCS-950G Wireless Internet Camera

1 Answer

Security First SDVS-1904 Setup (Not D-Link) Needing help with this. We installed the 4 cameras and the DVR. They're working fine. Now I'm trying to get it to come up on the computer so we can see the business remotely over the net. I ran the Cat5 cable and connected it to the D-Link DL624 router. From the DVR, I pulled the IP address and port that the router assigned it per the instructions. I set it to port 08000. Then I set up the router to forward port 8000. I set a static IP for the DVR in the router. It was able to clone the MAC number from the DVR. Looks like I did everything right. But no connection. I have the software installed on the computer. I set it to port 8000 with the same IP number as the DVR and click connect, but it just sits there and never connects. I can open a command window and ping the DVR and it answers me. But no picture. The computer is a late-model HP running Vista home premium. It's connected to the internet thru the router and a Motorola Surfboard cable modem. I have tried 2 versions of the Integrated Remote Station software, set both up according to instructions but nothing. WHAT AM I MISSING? This thing SHOULD work.

I'm not sure if you are still looking for the answer, but I think the problem may be that you need to enter the PUBLIC IP address of the modem at the remote end instead of the PRIVATE (ie. 192.168.1.x) IP that was actually assigned to the DVR. It works best if you assign a static IP to the DVR on the remote end and enter that IP into the router's DMZ. You might also want to get a free account at dyndns.net and setup a FQDN for your business router/modem. That way you can connect to it using something like "mybusiness.homeip.net" instead of an IP address, and if the IP changes it will still find it. You will also have to configure your modem at the business to automatically update the dyndns server when the IP changes.

I had exact same problem and it took forever to fix but I did fix it. If I plugged the camera into the tv it worked but when I tried going through the dvr no picture at all. The problem was the power supply cord to the cameras. It was bad, I happen to have another one and that was it. All cameras working!

Samsung SHR-1041K. Cannot connect to DVR system "Unknown Error"


Samsung 1041k DVR - Camera Web Server Solutions. ' UNKNOWN ERROR' OR 'CANNOT CONNECT TO SERVER'

Holy Smokes! Can't anyone write a simple solution? The manual totally sucks. It tells you everything except the details that will complete the puzzle. The answers here, so far, are written by gearheads who can't write an easy sentence.
.
1. The user name is case-sensitive. So if you program the DVR with a user name it will only take capital letters by default ... so when entering the user name (USER ID) in the web setup ... It MUST BE CAPITAL LETTERS otherwise you will get an 'unknown error'. There is no mention of this important little fact anywhere....

2. Use Internet Explorer ONLY (becase of old Active X controls), not FireFox, Chrome, or Safari...etc...etc. IE9 doesn't like it either .. just goes white for the most part or flickers ..so IE8 seems to work best.

3: When programming the DVR Box using the MENU button and the 'NETWORK OPTION ...Use Port 6100 in the NET CLIENT PORT. In the WEB SERVER PORT use port 80. The difference is ... port 6100 is used for the basic connection of the network to the DVR device and camera hardware and software ..... and port 80 is for viewing through Internet Explorer. (Port forwarding in the router must direct those ports right back to the IP address of the DVR (whatever you set it to). TCP and UDP together work just fine... not necessarily one or the other . I tried it both ways .. they all work.

4. If you are lucky enough to finally get Internet Explorer to hit the DVR software via the correct IP address and port of the DVR.... then it will prompt you to install the Active X control software embedded in the DVR. You might hae to refresh the screen a couple of times for it to download and install. If indeed it does then you will get a blank box that will wait for you figure out you need to click on a little wrench to configure the DVR connection. Add the DVR (give it a name). Enter the IP address it was configured with .... and set the port to 6100. Remember to capitalize the User Id and put in the password and save .. Completely IGNORE the confusing little matrix boxes that are used for setting up multiple DVRs and cameras. Save the setup, it wil take you back to the blank Samsung box interface and wait till you figure out to hit the connect button in the center. If you did it all correctly then you should connect to the camera views..

4. If you are going to view the cameras from the home network .... then enter the IP address assigned to the DVR PRECEEDED by http:// . Believe it or not it seems to make a difference. If you are viewing from ..say .. your work.. put in the numerical address of your home IP address and if you have the port forwarding set up correctly you will be forwarded directly to the DVR camera software where you can sign in and see the screens.

I have set up many, many IP cameras and various DVRs and software packages professionally.. I must say that this DVR and software is not very intuitive and was very difficult to get past some of the issues. The included instructions were of little help. I hope this helps somebody else.

I want 2 configure a DVR from remote place and not from the intranet. kindly help me out in solving the issue


To configure the DVR from a remote location you can do it one of two ways:
Create a vpn connection through your router if it supports it or an external units to the remote location. This will make the remote location appear to be local to the dvr.

You can also setup the dvr's internal IP and port on your router through port forwarding. This way certain network access or traffic will be passed directly to the dvr from outside your local network.
