DiBos 8 DVR software and Windows XP SP3

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
My company runs the Bosch DiBos 8 (v. 8.5) DVR software. The unit itself is Windows XP Embedded SP3. We have a few remote viewing stations that were running Windows XP SP2 without any problems. Those systems have now been upgraded to WXP SP3 and now cannot see the cameras anymore. We're also using UDP tunneling on port 1040.

Does anyone know how we can get DiBos working with WXP SP3?

I would check the simple things first - whenever a service pack is installed, you usually get default firewall activation, which tends to block remote viewing software.

Callandor: The firewall is disabled with a GPO.

Have you done any testing at the low level?  First, ping the DVR, and also check the connection logs on the router or DVR itself to see what is happening at connection time.
