    VPN Primer for Noobs

    A great alternative to the ASUS router is the Peplink Pepwave Surf SOHO. The software is maintained, the router is incredibly stable, and it has VPN and VLAN.

    Great question, as DH_NVR5XXX-4KS2_MultiLang_V3.216.0000006.0.R.20190223 is still the Firmware on the Dahua site. I'll ask on the ipcamtalk thread Big update!! NVR5XXX-4KS2_MultiLang_V4.000.0000000.0.R.20190713

    Email Bug fixed Firmware for IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_Eng_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000008.0.R.190619.zip

    Yep, the wait while the camera reboots had me worried too.

    You may want to add the Pepwave Pelink Surf Soho to the VPN solution survey at the top. It has L2TP and VLAN built in, the software is actually maintained, tech support is responsive, and my until has been running great for a couple of years.

    Email Bug fixed Firmware for IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_Eng_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000008.0.R.190619.zip

    Thanks Andy! (EMPIRETECANDY) Nice updates. I used a USB thumb drive to directly upgrade my DHI-NVR5216-4KS2 from DH_NVR5XXX-4KS2_MultiLang_V3_215_0000001_0_R_20180326 to DH_NVR5XXX-4KS2_MultiLang_V4.000.0000000.0.R.20190713 2019-07-13 and it went smoothly without having to do a reset to default...

    Dahua NVR Quiet Silent Fan Mod

    The NVRs that don't have built-in PoE are much quiter, as they use an external power brick doesn't have a fan.

    NVR5xxx Firmware Released on 201712

    Did you confirm that file that you are trying to update with is a .bin file and for your NVR and the correct region?

    NVR5xxx Firmware Released on 201712

    Not that I have seen. A couple of tips for upgrading the NVR firmware: - The thumb drive should be formatted FAT32, not eXFAT (which isn't recognized by the NVR) - The NVR firmware comes as a .rar file, so the .bin file needs to be extracted before loading it onto the thumb drive for the...

    Idmss push notifications "failed to subscribe"

    No, I didn't get push "subscription" to work, as I didn't have to reset the NVR when I updated the firmware. (IDMSS Plus Live Preview and Playback work fine, and when I Subscibe, I get "Saving Configuration", but never any notifications.) Instead of push notifications, I am using the Send Email...

    NVR5XXX-4KS2 latest new firmware.

    @rufunky and @MixManSC Thanks. My NVR firmware upgrade was also smooth with no resets required. Everything came up clean following the install, and all of my settings appear to have been maintained. Save to MP4 and the check boxes for Video and Pic are great additions! The firmware really has...

    NVR5XXX-4KS2 latest new firmware.

    Did you do a factory reset before or after updating the new firmware, or did it upgrade cleanly with everything configured?

    NVR5XXX-4KS2 latest new firmware.

    Are these functions added since DH_NVR5XXX-4K_Eng_V3.215.0000000.1.R.20170901? Both versions are V3.215.00000001 but the new version has another 8KB of code. Is the difference only multi-language support, as would be implied by the same V3.215.0000001 base, or is this string meaningless? Thanks

    Idmss push notifications "failed to subscribe"

    @DarkHelmet thanks. I'll try the factory reset on the NVR when I eventually get around to updating the software.

    Idmss push notifications "failed to subscribe"

    @DarkHelmet Connected to WiFi at home and viewing live video on the iPhone through iDMSS from the NVR and able to subscribe to Push Notifications on the cameras, but when trying to subscribe to Push Notifications from the NVR, I still get "Failed to subscribe", and I don't actually receive any...

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 / NVR5216-16P-4KS2

    @dzimm27 - there have long been issues with daylight savings time. A simple workaround is to just uncheck the daylight savings time option and then change your time zone twice a year.

    Dahua NVR5216-4KS2 / NVR5216-16P-4KS2

    For the NVR5216-4KS2 (without PoE ports) the power supply is an external brick, so the internal heat load is lessened (as is the noise). The fan header for the case fan that blows across the circuit board is 5v, which is why I used a 5v replacement fan. (Many 12v fans won't even start at this...

    Dahua NVR Quiet Silent Fan Mod

    Hi @Kinchyle - I tried a single SilverStone Technology PWM Fan RPM Reduction Cable, and it got a 40 mm Noctua 5v A-Series Cooling Fan down to the same noise level as the Western Digital drive. Next I cut a hole in the case top to get better airflow to the fan, which was then covered with a...

    Hi Andy @EMPIRETECANDY . Sorry for my slang. General_IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_Eng_N_Stream3_V2.460.0000.15.R.20170907.bin loaded onto the IPC-HDW4231EMP-AS cameras without any problems and is working fine.
