Unable to connect PoE Acti camera to Hikvision NVR

Recommended Posts

This is my first installation ever. I bought a Hikvision DS-7600 series NVR to use an Acti E73 I bought a few years ago.

The camera is a PoE and it says is ONVIF compliant.

I followed the instructions and added the camera manually but it won’t connect to the NVR 

I connected the camera directly to the network using an PoE switch and I’was able to find its  IP address using a PC.  However I cannot access it through  the web browser since I don’t have the login credentials. Already tried defaults. Most likely changed these and don’t remember? Anyway to recover them?

In the Hik NVR menu I have included the IP address and selected Acti for the protocol.

Changed the port number to whatever  number I set up for port forwarding in my router.

There is a field for the camera username and password and I have left this blank.

Again not sure if this is part of the problem??

Thanks in advance.
