RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING INFO FROM A PANASONIC REP IN TORONTO PERTAINING TO SETTING UP A SECOND CAMERA:
"THE FIRST CAMERA MUST NOT BE AT ADDRESS XXXX.XXXX.XXXX.253 (EXAMPLE 192.168.1.253). DO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE SETTING UP THE SECOND CAMERA:
1. CHANGE THE IP ADDRESS OF THE FIRST CAMERA THROUGH STATIC SETUP (EXAMPLE 192.168.1.252)
2. DISCONNECT THE FIRST CAMERA FROM THE NETWORK PRIOR TO SETTING UP THE SECOND CAMERA. (THE FIRST CAMERA WILL GRAB A NEW ADDRESS THROUGH DHCP THE NEXT TIME IT IS CONNECTED).

THE REASON FOR DOING ONE OF THE ABOVE IS THAT THE FIRST CAMERA IS PROBABLY STILL AT AN IP ADDRESS ENDING IN 253. A NEW OR FACTORY RESET CAMERA WILL WANT TO GRAB THE SAME ADDRESS AND CAUSE AN IP CONFLICT ON YOUR NETWORK.

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are

The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:

Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: Hi, I have one Panasonic camera

All I found the meaning for that error is "Server name could not be found/reach" If you know the IP of the destination, try IP from the second camera, if goes through, then Yes it is DNS issue.

How to configure the UPNP in panasonic camera?If we need access from the internet should we register in viewnet.com?


To access your camera from the Internet you will need to configure uPnP (or configure port forwarding manually) and register with some kind of dns service like viewnetcam (or know your home's external IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider).

1. To configure uPnP on your camera, look in the network settings for an automatic network configuration option - this will trigger the camera to talk to your router using uPnP to set up port forwarding. The default for one camera is to use port 80 for the outside port and something like 192.168.1.253 for the internal network address (internal to your home only). uPnP will try to configure the second and third cameras to external ports 50000 or 50001. My router failed to configure the 3rd camera so I had to manually add a port forwarding option from my router's admin pages. To note, you can configure all port forwarding manually from within the router admin pages. Just list the internal network address to your camera (like 192.168.2.253) and specify a different port for each camera (like 50000 to 50000). You can then access your camera by typing in 192.168.2.253:5000

2. Then, you should register with viewnetcam.com. Adding your cameras on viewnetcam will give you access to them from outside your house without you having to know the IP address to your home network. You will simply type in your viewnetcam url with ":" and the port number (like username.viewnetcam.com:50000).

Note: When trying to access your camera from outside your home (or even pinging your router from outside your home), you need to know the IP address of your home. This is assigned by your Internet Service Provided and can change every time you reboot your modem. Services like viewnetcam keep track of the IP address to your home and update it automatically when it changes (your camera will communicate with Viewnetcam servers occasionally to update the IP address). All you have to remember is one constant URL (the viewnetcam url) and you can get to your cameras!

When i switch to wireless mode, camera stays in;privacy mode


Unfortunately the electronic operating instructions are not available from the support website and have to be purchased from Panasonic.
I think it will be a case of re-setting the camera to factory settings and re-program the webcam again
