Hey @wittaj, so my existing setup is basically a tower and monitor in my basement with a POE switch connecting cameras and everything together. My cameras are isolated from the internet by my router- I've got into each one and blocked access to the internet and use a VPN to connect to my BI pc from outside of the house.Most of us run headless BI computers.
We use Remote Desktop (RDP) or some other similar application to log directly into the BI computer from another device.
UI3 is on the BI Computer, which has two IP addresses under the dual NIC setup - Camera IP addresses on one NIC and an Internet IP address on the 2nd NIC. You would access UI3 from the LAN the exact same way using the exact same IP address you use now to access UI3, the only difference is the cameras are no longer on the same IP address as the rest of your system.
All you would do is add the 2nd NIC to your BI computer and assign it an IP address range that is not the same IP address range as you current LAN. Then you change the IP addresses of the cameras in the camera GUI and in BI and you are good to go.
So if your existing internet LAN is 192.168.1.xxx, just change the cameras to 192.168.2.xxx and then you are only changing one number in your already existing setup in the cameras and in BI.
Another NIC can be had for $10-$20 and is a cheap investment in keeping cameras off the internet.
Say, for example, that I wanted to move my monitor to a different location in the house but keep the switch, connections, and tower down in the basement, how would I and what would I need to basically view the BI pc from the monitor in a different location- another whole pc that remotes in?
