DVR and PSS unable to log into IP Cameras

I few years ago I bought a hybrid DVR (20 channels, 16 analog, 4 IP) from SCK. It's been working fine with the 16 analog channels, but I've been trying to add IP cameras to the IP channels with zero luck. One of them a Foscam, junky little camera, just bought to test with. I can log in with Chrome or Firefox fine and see and configure the camera, (I can't use MSIE because Windows XP does not allow the dvm_ipcam2.ocx program to run) but I can't login to this Foscam camera with the DVR or PSS, even tho I'm using the same exact login details. The 2nd camera is a little more expensive, it's supposed to be ONVIF compliant, (no name on it) but I have the same problem. This one I can log in and view with MSIE 8, but when I tried to view it with Chrome or Firefox, it says i need to install a plugin. When I first tried to do it with MSIE it gave the same msg, but I found the plugin and installed it but it only works with MSIE, not the other browsers.


Regardless I can view both cameras in a browser so I know I'm using the correct log in details. But when I try to add them to the DVR or use PSS software to view them using the same login details, I get login failures.

I have reset both cameras to factory default, I have tried enabling the uPnp. I have tried creating a new user on each camera with different permissions, but nothing seems to make the least bit of difference.

Does anyone have an idea what is wrong?

Thank you.

When it comes to our IP cameras yous shouldn't have any issues But when using third party cameras they have to be Onvif Cameras Onvif 2.0 and up to be exact.

The ones say it's Onvif, but does not say what standard and it does not even have a brand name, so I have no real idea.


The foscam is not I'm sure of that.


I'll look at your cameras and see if I can find something.

You will not be able to use PSS with that camera. Unfortunately the software is hardware specific.  I maybe able to get the camera to work with the DVR but I have no guarantees. When a camera states it is ONVIF compliant they should work with our systems, but that DVR we have not carried in sometime now so the firmware may not allow you to integrate that camera and DVR. I probably need to login and see if I can make it work.
