    Foscam R4S dropped off of Blue Iris after ip address change

    Yes, I've always known that I'd want a much better camera for outside.

    Foscam R4S dropped off of Blue Iris after ip address change

    Yeah, that goes back about 2.5 years, so I don't really recall, but I may have. I don't think I did, but possibly. I just bought another R4S though for somewhere else inside, and I know I used the barcode to set it up and everything went well, and it's working well with BI. Comparing the...

    Foscam R4S dropped off of Blue Iris after ip address change

    Nope, it's just a normal ip address that is part of my network. One strange thing I noticed is that, when I check the ip in the Foscam iOS app it gives me one address, but when I check with Windows Foscam VMS it shows another address. Both are able to view and control the camera perfectly, even...

    Foscam R4S dropped off of Blue Iris after ip address change

    I found a few minutes to log on and tinker, but no luck, or at least no good luck. I deleted the old camera and created a new one using the new info. When I click on find/inspect, it never finds anything. It gets a timeout, so it's still dead in the water as far as BI is concerned. It works...

    Foscam R4S dropped off of Blue Iris after ip address change

    I had been thinking I might try that tomorrow. Actually, I can remote in from work, so maybe I'll tinker with it over lunch. I'll reply back if that fixes it. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Foscam R4S dropped off of Blue Iris after ip address change

    I have a Foscam R4S in my garage. It's been out there for almost 3 years and I've never really had any issues with it. The video feed is recorded using Blue Iris. I was doing some work out there a couple of days ago and I had to turn off the circuit breaker that happened to feed that camera...

    Blue Iris Web Server not found on port 81?

    Thanks guys, and @sebastiantombs, your advice isn't falling on deaf ears. I just want to get things back as they were and working before I try changing things. I don't think it's ever a good idea to jump in and start making a bunch of changes unless you're coming from a known good state, which...

    Blue Iris Web Server not found on port 81?

    OK, I see that, and I gather that you're promoting running my server through a VPN. That's all fine and well, and a very good suggestion, but I don't see anything in there that is going to help me with my current situation, which is that I can't see BI from the mobile app. While I don't mean to...

    Blue Iris Web Server not found on port 81?

    I've had occasional issues with not being able to hit the BI web server from the mobile app. Typically, this is only from outside my home, but I'm fine if I'm connected to one of my home wi-fi networks. Now it has stopped working again and I can't the server from anywhere inside or outside of my...

    Looking for advice in locking down my system

    I have a Linksys WRT3200ACM router and my wi-fi extender is a TP-Link AC1750 WiFi Extender. I think they're both very capable and relatively secure, assuming I have things setup well. I'm certain I'm past due to review the security settings of both, as well as making certain their firmware is...

    Looking for advice in locking down my system

    Thanks Rob! Excellent information on the dual-NIC. I'd never thought of that or even heard of it, but that looks like it would be very helpful, and a great way to help keep things segregated. I've been planning to pickup a POE switch soon, before I start picking up my outdoor cameras, so this...

    I'll start reading through that thread. Thank you.

    Looking for advice in locking down my system

    Currently, our camera setup includes a Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW in our great room and a cheap Foscam R4S monitoring the inside of our garage. They're both connected via ethernet and recorded through Blue Iris. I plan to start adding outdoor cameras soon, but that's what we have now. A week or...

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    Yep, it is. Thanks for the tip though.

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    Sorry for rambling. When I'm remoting into my BI server, which is running on an old HP running Windows 10, I cannot hear audio when reviewing clips or watching live video. This server is in my network closet with no keyboard, mouse, monitor or speakers, so remoting in using TeamViewer is my best...
