  1. Ah I see. I was able to follows the (easier) process on my 2.212 firmware. I wasn't aware that the telnet password had now changed. If you can get in as the 888888 user, can you force a 'set to factory defaults' from the GUI - that option is available from the 2.212 GUI ? -- Chris
  2. The telnet command does not use the users / passwords that are used to access the gui. The telnet command only works with root / vizxv . -- Chris
  3. I don't know about re-loading the firmware, but if you need to re-set the passwords, you can use the clearparam command as described in the opening post. telnet into the camera, then type /sbin/clearparam This will do a 'factory reset' for all of the camera parameters - it will clear any user accounts that you may have created, and it will restore the camera default settings (passwords, ip addresses, overlays, etc). When I ran this the process seemed to hang (as it has changed the camera ip address, and so the telnet session was mangled). But after waiting for the camera to re-appear as I was able to access the GUI using admin and the default admin password. -- Chris
  4. What a really useful post. Thanks a lot for taking the time to document this in such detail. I have one question tho' - does anyone know where I can find out exactly what new features are offered in the 2.4.X firmware that are not in 2.212 ? I'd like to know if it's worth the bother to do the upgrade or not. -- Chris
