IP9100A Network Video Server - Simple Control Panel
Generate a Control Panel
Fill in the form below to generate a custom control panel for your IP9100A. The generated page can be saved to your computer for local access or placed on your own web site. If you are implementing the php scripts above, save the generated page as control.html and upload it with the php files to your website folder.
IP Address and Port are the address of your IP9100A on the network. They can be local or remote.
Exact instructions will vary from provider to provider, but for 1and1.com the following steps will work:
Using the Control Panel
The top part of the page lets you view your cameras one by one and verify the IP9100A configuration. After changing camera channels, it is necessary to refresh the image to get a picture from the new channel.
The Show Photo Numbers link is useful to check on the operation of the IP9100A. If the photo numbers are not incrementing on each click, then the IP9100A is probably hung. Normally the count will increment at about 5 frames per second.
If multiple cameras are selected, clicking the refresh link will show the latest captured image which will be randomly chosen from the selected inputs.
If you correctly filled out the form above with your server information, the links on the generated page should configure your IP9100A correctly. Just follow the numbered steps.
Other Useful Commands
Display the status of the server. Clicking on this link will show the various settings of the IP9100A in the status window.
Reboot the IP9100A. This link performs a soft reset of the IP9100a. Some changes require a reboot to take effect, such as changing the IP address or ports. If you change the IP address or ports, you will have to generate a new control page for the new address.
Reset to Factory Default. Reset all options to the factory default settings. This is equivalent to the hardware reset button. All settings will be lost. The address and port for control access will probably change.
Set http ports. Demonstrates how to add your own command links to the control panel. The full documentation for the cgi commands is available in the Files section of the 9100 Yahoo group as IPCam CGIs.doc.
Let me know what you find working and I will add the new commands to the Control Panel page.
