Guys, Please be gentle with me despite the fact that I wish to raise YET AGAIN the issue of how to RESET a Hikvision IP DS-2CD2132-101201 Dome Camera. I've read endless posts which appear to offer the way forward but which for one reason or another fail to assist me in getting my camera backup and running. I'm not entirely a newbie to IT but the world of IP Cameras has proved a steep learning curve and I have in fact managed, after much frustration, managed to get my setup working remotely. There is so much to learn if you want to DIY rather than purchasing a ready made installation which is not the way I wanted to go. I wanted to "understand" (at least to a limited extent) how it all works so that I could LEARN. So I now have a basic level of understanding after managing my way through Fixed IP, DDNS, Port Forwarding (on the unique interface of the TalkTalk "Super Router" Huawei HG633) not to mention that SDAP doesn't run on Mac. Job done. At least that was until I decided to "improve" security by changing the camera http port from 80 to 88. Maybe it was the router port that I should have changed and not the camera? Unfortunately since doing this I can no longer see this camera on SDAP (using a PC) or iVMS on my mac. When attempting to access the (offending) camera's fixed IP via web browser I get "Network Abnormal". I therefore concluded that I needed to RESET the camera only to find that this particular camera doesn't appear to have a physical reset button, leaving only some form of firmware refresh as the only way forward (at least that is my understanding) with many posts advising against this in case the camera has "hacked" Chinese s/w vs ROW. The camera was bought online from a reputable company (Network Cameras) and to the best of my knowledge was not a "grey" import. But what do I know. Is there a way of telling the camera origin? I have of course also tried accessing the camera using it's fixed IP and adding a :88 suffix but with no luck. So my simple question is: How should I proceed. Please remember. We all have to start somewhere and you guys are I believe the catalyst!!
