I need direct IP connectivity to cameras connected to the POE ports on a NVR-ELC-16-16POE. The NVR is assigning IPs to cameras but it does not route traffic from the main lan to the cameras lan.
Is there any way to set the NVR 16 ports to a bridge group so it works as a switch?
I really need to access cameras individually and the only option I see right now is to get a new POE switch and stop using the ports in the NVR
If you want to connect to cameras attached to the POE switch, you will need to plug your computer into one of the POE ports. The computer will get an IP from the switch and be on the same network. You will then be able to access any camera IP that you see listed in your remote devices section of your NVR. Note that you will not be able to connect to your NVR while on the network of the switch.
The built in switch creates it’s own network, and there is no way to change that. The benefit is that it will take all video traffic off of your main network.
