Question about D-Link DCS-5300W Network Camera
I have my 5300w configured, but to view it I have to type 192.168.1.99:801/cgi-bin/camctrl.cgi?
At which point it gives me the login prompt, I enter my details and it takes me to a white page with 'return page' on it.
I then delete from the url to leave cgi-bin/camctrl.cgi?
to leave 192.168.1.99:801/ and it lets me in, whilst this is not a problem as such, it is when I want to watch remotely as the forwarding forwards to the address it should be ie 192.168.1.99:801 but on the other end it does not recognise it without the extra /cgi-bin/camctrl.cgi?
Very annoying, can anyone help?!?!
I have read the manual and it looks like the problem can be fixed by using a paper clip or something about the same size and resetting to the factory defaults. Then go through the setup again and that should clear it up. Also to facilitate remote viewing and control from outside the local network it would be a good idea to go into the router configuration for your home network and assignee a fixed IP address to the camera and then forward the ports needed by the camera to the new fixed IP. The procedure for configuring your router will vary by manufacturer so consult the manuals. Or send a new request with a model number and I will try and help. The camera manual is available at http://support.dlink.ca/products/view.asp?productid=DCS%2D5300 if you need, along with some helpful tips. Good Luck
