I have just recently purchased an AverMedia Digital Video Surveillance card which allows me to plug 16 security cameras into it. I plan to locate this PC centrally and use it for securing my premises, but I will need to access it remotely to monitor cameras in real time, etc.
The software that came with the card has the ability to do this via TCP/IP but unfortunately has no instruction manual. It seems quite straight forward, with the software using the PCs IP address (192.168.5.2) and a check box that you can tick that says "Enable RemoveView server via TCP/IP: using port 9090.
I have enabled these options and can ping the PC on my home network, however when I go to a web browser on another PC and type //192.168.5.2:9090 it says "Waiting for http://192.168.5.2:9090
" in the bottom left hand corner of the web browser screen, and just the word "Connecting...". After about 5 minutes or so my PC returns with "Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage".
It seems that the PC is trying to connect but is being blocked or is waiting for a response? Is there anything that I need to configure on my firewall, or ports, or on the router than would allow me to make this connection?
