I am trying to test and evaluate a POE IP camera. I do not have the injection box to supply it with 18 volts dc. Can't I temporarily simply place the leads from a power supply onto two of the leads on a cat5 connector? Which number lead gets 18volt minus and which lead number gets the 18volt positive?
