I just bought an Airlink101 http://www.airlink101.com/products/aicn747.php
. It's an IP camera that support mjpeg.
I realize that there is no official support for this but I'm trying to get it to work and will be very happy to update the wiki if I can.
I did find out that the camera runs an open telnet daemon on port 15566 which allowed me to find a URL that gets a static image.
I set it up based on the wiki entry http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/IP_Cameras
. I found two links that showed a still image and a video stream (respectively):
I have a motion wrapper created under core/hybrid and an analog camera under that. I put the IP and MAC address into the analog camera and set configuration as:
I tried setting netcam_url to the following also:http://192.168.80.240/cgi/mjpg/mjpeg.cgi
Nothing worked. So I decided to try and troubleshoot by looking at the traffic. I set up tcpTrace http://www.pocketsoap.com/tcpTrace/
on my laptop (192.168.80.252) and set it to forward all traffic from incoming port 80 to 192.168.80.240:80. I then deleted the camera and recreated it with the same settings except changed the IP for the camera to .252 and changed netcam_url to 252.
I tried viewing the cameras by going into Security->View Cameras and it still said "Camera screenshot not available." I didn't see any traffic come to my laptop from the core. I tried all 4 combinations above and still no traffic coming from the core.
I also tried similar settings with the camera set up as an IP camera but did not see any results there.
Regardless of the camera, shouldn't I see traffic attempting to grab the output from the camera? I verified that there is no problem going from the core to the camera nor to my laptop on port 80.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
