    Need suggestions on long runs (1,000'ish ft)

    I'm not trying to confuse him, just giving him additional info/something else to think about (for the project).

    Need suggestions on long runs (1,000'ish ft)

    I think your only answer is single mode fiber. - Single mode fiber can do 10Gb (multi-mode can also to 10Gb, but not at the distances you are dealing with), you may not need it today, but eventually you'll be glad you have 10Gb backbone between buildings. - Wireless is cheaper/quicker (assuming...

    I did search, but I guess I need to be more specific.

    AT&T Gateway router

    You should look into openVPN. Instead of opening port(s) for Blue Iris, you'd be opening port(s) for openVPN, but now you are only dealing with openVPN port(s), certificate and/or user/pass and you'd have access to your entire network, instead of Blue Iris. Connecting from a mobile app outside...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    UPDATE, I replaced the power supply, about 25 days ago, and the computer has been up and running ever since. I received a notification for windows updates which I set to remind me later/postpone/whatever the option to do it later was. This is w10, but you still get 1 or 2 changes to push updates...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    I connected the UPS USB cable and ran a self test, the PC stayed on, the test passed and the UPS program showed everything in good/normal status. On 4-26-18 the computer rebooted 6-8 times (I stopped counting the entries) between 5:15pm and 8:45pm and the reboots appeared to be about 5-7...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    Yes, it does do a periodic test and your suggestion is something to consider/look in to. I have had this UPS for many years and I've swapped out the battery, one time, but other than that, the unit appears to work properly. I've also done manual self-test while on site (via the software...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    Update- I updated the BIOS on Sunday and I am still having issues, I will rule out the BIOS. I guess it is time to start taking out components, which are not much. Video card and memory are the only items I can remove.

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    Update- Just got a call that it rebooted at 5:45pm, again, same as last week. Also, I literally, just received the email from CDW with the supermicro BMC license that I need in order to apply it to the motherboard so I can update BIOS from the IPMI card. Which means, since my last post, I have...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    IPMI is problematic with the date/time adjustment I have to make on my local computer. Also, I am using a dedicated video card and the IPMI remote display only works with the on-board video. I tried to do a BIOS update via the IPMI, but that feature is locked and requires a key to activate it...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    I am not sure why, but windows isn't logging anything in Event Viewer when the computer reboots. All I see is an entry after the computer reboots stating that the computer booted after an improper shutdown, or something along those lines. I wanted to run a memory test and until I can get back...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    I might have more information. I have someone on-site who is trying to power up the computer and according to them, they are pressing the power button and nothing is happening. I asked them to unplug from the power supply and when they plug the cord back in, they do see a green light on the...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    I ended up re-formatting with a fresh image from MS. It was reformatted on 4-1-18. Once formatted, I did not let it check for updates other than what it was going to do in its own in the background, my main goal was to make the least amount of changes while getting the camera software installed...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    Randomly rebooted, today, at 5:21pm. I am not on site, but I'll check the logs to see if it references 2030, again. I was going to reformat this past weekend, but there were some bookmarks that I needed to export and move onto an external drive and that took longer than I thought it would...

    securing remote NVRs

    Yup, this is probably the correct answer. Them doing the extra step isn't hard, but remembering to do it will be the problem. I know because I've already tried, in the past, and it never fails, I always get a call asking why remote viewing doesn't work. Thanks for the input.

    securing remote NVRs

    Not going to disagree with this, but how do you know the VPN server/client you are using doesn't have a backdoor?

    securing remote NVRs

    It can be difficult if the user isn't savvy. Your reply is subjective/your opinion. In the real world, there are MANY owners who barley know how to login to their phone.

    securing remote NVRs

    There are times when internet access to the NVR is a requirement (not the cameras, but the NVR). Most of the time it is for small shops that don't have tech savvy operators that view their cameras from their home/on the road/mobile devices, etc... which is why the firewall can't be restricted to...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    I forgot to add this... The motherboard is supermicro and it has a built in IP management port to remotely connect to the computer if the OS is locked up. It has a log file, but only saves the last 30 events, I would need to export to a syslog server to have more than 30 events. Anyway, I...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    Ok, I will create an ISO (from the MS site) and throw it on a USB drive and re-install windows and go from there.

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    I found that exact thread when I initially had this issue (I should have included that in my initial post with the other details I included). However, I tried the few things suggested in that thread, which didn't help. I bought my own copy of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit - OEM) , but it is...

    Troubleshooting Windows reboots?

    Are we allowed to discuss computer troubleshooting issues in this section? This is for a camera server, but I don't believe the issue is related to the camera server software running on this computer, however, I feel like the people who browse this section may be able to help. If I get the ok...

    IP camera jobs, is this the right forum?

    Yeah, I agree. It is very unfortunate for many reasons. I have talked to vendors who simply tell me 'we rarely get an on-site IT contact and when we do, it takes them weeks to get back to us.' I guess it will continue this way until they get a reason to improve it.

    IP camera jobs, is this the right forum?

    I'm not looking to leave the IT field, if anything, IP cameras/networking/etc should be considered more IT than anything else. Especially in today's world where the NVR/VMS systems are integrated with everything (access cards, gates, internal/external doors, etc...).

    IP camera jobs, is this the right forum?

    Yes, but it is a catch 22 (IMO). I can't get clients because they want service when they have issues, they don't want to wait until my job is done (I don't blame them). I don't want to quit a job to try to start a business. There is another reason that there might not be that large of a market...
