    DoS attack from Local IP

    Anyone ever have their routers log a DoS attack from a 192.168.x.x address on a subnet that they are not using? I'm getting intermittent DoS attacks being logged in routers log from a 192.168.x.x address. But it's not on the same subnet that I am using. Is this malware or a network intrusion...

    Troubleshooting Camera Connection

    TL,DR: it was the connectors Well, turned out to be a couple of issues. Turns out I was in such a hurry to finish installing the cameras before the rain that I had in fact down the connectors upside (backwards) one the camera ends. I guess I was focused on whether the wire strands were in the...

    Troubleshooting Camera Connection

    I used pass through RJ45 connectors, and the blade on the crimping tool broke, so the ends might not be the cleanest. I tried to clean them up as best as I could with a wire cutter. But the connection isn't formed from the ends right (the bit of exposed copper you can see at the end of the pass...

    Troubleshooting Camera Connection

    Solved: Had the RJ45 connectors on the camera end of the Cat 6 run upside down, and bad RJ45 connector on the network side of the run on one cam. So I'm a little stumped. I get my cameras, I plug each one at a time into my PoE switch to make sure they worked and to adjust all the settings, IP...

    how do I determine the appropriate bit rate and frame rate

    @bp2008 with these numbers you posted, "4000 or 6000 Kbps", are setting your cams to constant and using those bit rates or are you doing VBR and setting 4 or 6k as the max rate?

    Alerts Folder Size Allocation?

    @samplenhold thanks! I knew I had a misunderstanding. I watched the tutorial videos in the Wiki, but Pt 1. of "Clips And Archiving" is a dead link and missing on YouTube. Where did you pull the image from?

Seeing as adding OpenVPN/WireGuard appears to...

    How much RAM for Raspberry PiVPN?

    For those running OpenVPN or WireGuard on a Raspberry Pi how much RAM do you think is necessary? The Raspberry Pi 4 comes in 1GB ($34), 2GB ($35), 4GB ($55) and 8GB ($75). It seems to me getting the 8GB Pi makes the most sense. May be complete overkill and not necessary, seen plenty of posts of...
