    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

    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?

    Alerts Folder Size Allocation?

    Need some help understanding "Alerts". Alert files are the video files captured when the camera is triggered, i.e. from motion correct? Right now I only have one physical camera plugged in. I have two cameras setup in BI (both from the same physical camera). One of the (virtual) cameras in BI...

    VPN Primer for Noobs

    Any disadvantages to running OpenVPN/WireGuard on a Pi vs on a router like an Edgerouter X? The router I have now has OpenVPN installed (available/capability?) but I'm looking to upgrade to a UniFi system and would like to use the USG over the Edge. 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...

    Tx Rate low and all over the place

    Anyone have an ideas or suggestions on why my Tx Rate would be so slow and ranging wildly even when accessing the same WiFi network, same 2.4Ghz band from the same location on the same device? I'm connected to the 2.4Ghz band, I'm too far away from the WiFi router to connect to the 5Ghz band...

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    Also, since these devices are apparently so good and so sneaky at dialing home and compromising your network information, no one's worried that malware could make it from the cams to the BI machine and then out to the rest of the world that way? If this is possible then the only way to prevent...

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    How do you go about doing what @Arjun said about automatically denying remote connections to the BI Machine? Is this a windows setting, a BI setting, or a network/router setting? Trying to make sure I understand what Arjun is referring to and making sure I do that.

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    @Arjun since you mention this, is it advisable to firewall off the BI Machine's IP address in your router settings? Technically you don't need an internet connection once the BI Machine is setup and running, correct? If you have an NTP installed on the BI Machine locally. Someone mentioned that...

    Sub Stream Setup / Options Question

    Is it possible to reassign what the roles of the main stream and sub stream are/do in BI? i.e. so I can set the sub stream to be the one recorded direct-to-disk? I'm not sure if there is any functionality lost by adding the camera by it's RTSP rather than by HTTP in BI. But I assume there is...

    Sub Stream Setup / Options Question

    After reading the Sub Stream Guide Wiki I see that it says, So lets say I have a 8MP camera that I want to record 24/7. But I only want it to record 2MP (1080p) 24/7 and I want it to record the full 8MP resolution only when motion is triggered. In the camera web interface settings, if I set...

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    Making sure I'm following along correctly again using the example and screenshots from the original post (above), "-enter the IP you want to use for your cams. Choose one that will not conflict with anything else like "192.168.55.10" in this step I would want to use any 192.168.x.x address as...

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    Just to make sure I'm following correctly, using this method you would not block the newly assigned Cam IP addresses (connected to the CAM "2nd NIC") on your WAN Router correct? Because if I understand correctly the router connected to your modem (the internet) doesn't actually see the IP...

    Adding a Second HDD to Optiplex 7040 MT

    Seems like there's a few people running the Optiplex 7040 (Mini Tower) for their BI setup. The board on the 7040 Mini Tower has 4 SATA ports and the tower has 2 extra 3.5" bays that would be used for optical drives. Can you add an additional HDD drive using the extra SATA? according to one post...

    Advice Needed on Best Practices for Securing Reolink NVR

    I'm digging through all the BI How-To threads right now. Some of the benefits do seem to be worth the trade off in amount of time it's going to take me to learn. I was really looking for just a simple solution to replace the drawbacks in my current mix of WiFi based cameras. But seeing as I'm...
