I have just been looking at trace 3 and there is next to nothing in it at all. There is not one packet with a source or destination address from the 192.168.1.0 network, but there is some from a 169.x.x.x address. These addresses are allocated by Windows PCs, when they cannot get an IP address from the DHCP server.
Please can you try again?
OK test4 running. Plugged in camera with ID = 12229268. after a while, I checked it had connected then stopped trace. mac = 44 ef bf 64 d7 f2
Test5 my working camera on 192.168.1.3. I set a PTZ change and caused an alarm. mac is ec 3d fd 3f f8 4f
I don't see any traffic from either...
If you don't get any clues, I think it's time to give it a miss and into the bin...
I have deleted all traces now from this thread, as I have them all on my PC now. I'll try & have a look at them this afternoon, but I am not for giving up, don't know the meaning of that expression!
I still don't think you are using the right PC to run Wireshark on, as there is nothing in either trace going to or from the only camera (.3 or MAC address ec:3d:fd:3f:f8:4f).
So you need to choose which PC you are going to access this camera from, let's say "my PC" (.4) & start Wireshark running on "my PC". The whilst running Wireshark, then try & access the camera from the software application that is also on "my PC".
Thanks, I have the trace now & have deleted it from your post.
The camera on.24 is responding saying that it does not have port 80 open, so that is an issue with that camera.
I can see stuff going on with the camera on .3, but I will look at that in more detail later this afternoon.
Looking at the .3 camera now, I can see .4 establish a TCP session to .3 OK but then (all well within a second, the camera disconnects the session. This just keeps repeating itself for a while and then it does establish OK & I can see packets carrying the audio & video. So that looks OK.
I can't see the camera ID on .24 as port 80 is closed on that camera.
I have run an app on the pc called anycam.io.... It finds ports 563,587 and 8800 for both mjpeg and onvif... on 192.168.1.24 It reports an error- failed to retrieve camera stream.
If i put in .3 (my working camera)... after a while it hooks into the camera and displays the video stream. 563 and 587 I think are for RTSP streams so I guess cam on 24 uses port 8800 ?
If the camera (.24) supports web access, then it should be via ports 80 or 443, they are the industry standard. Can your app on one of the PCs be configured to target .24 using 8800 then?
