Hi to all. On this moment I am working out a video system for my company. I use an older panel pc (win XP, intel core duo T7500 at 2.2Ghz. Connected are (now) 6 dlink ip camera's (5020L) and there will be added 4 - 6 camera's extra. 8 camera's will be connected on one switch which again is connected to a second switch where all lan traffic passes, 2 other will be on a lan which is wireless bridged (2 ENH-202) between the buildings and from ther to the second switch. CPU use of the panel pc, according to windows is at 55-65%, BI cpu usage at 30-35% with 6 cameras. Lan usage (with one cable) is, according to windows, about 15-20% (with 1 or 2 lan ports used, no difference, only one port is at 20%, other at 0%). Both lan ports are GB ports. Would it be a good idea to put a GB switch, now is a 100mb switch used. Since this panel pc has 2 Lan connections (2 cards) and also a wireless connection (can also be used because wifi is also running where the panel pc is), is it better to connect 2 cables? They have differente ip's. I also want to view the html page remotely for viewing the cameras on differente places (on the lan mostly, sometimes on my smartphone). I could use some advice to get the best of this. On this moment I am running the demo Blue Iris but will surely buy the full version. I am not sure weather to put BI on this panel pc AND on a different pc, the panel pc stays online 24/7, other computers can be put to sleep. I like the idea of using this panel pc because i had it already, is stable, and easy to attach to the wall. The only minus was I had to connect a keyboard and mouse, the touch panel is difficult for writing text with the on screen keyboard. The panel pc will only be used for video monitoring, maybe I can switch off some windows components that use cpu or lan resources to make the cpu load or lan load less? Is it possible to use one lan port for the input of the cameras and the other one for the output to connect to other computers? Right now it seems only one port is used, I don't know if it would be possible to connect one switch to one lan port, without DHCP and the other one to the lan which connects to the internet, since this would be possible with this panel pc. This would not be possible for all cameras but for most of them. Thanks for reading and for all the help!
