iPhone connectivity, updated manual, possible bug?

Hi I’m a newbie to NetcamStudio X, and Netcam Studio Smart Camera. I’m using Win10 and an iPhone 5s with iOS10.11.

Firstly, I think the instruction manual refers to an earlier addition of NetCam Studio as the screenshots are different from the version I have downloaded (v 1.3.7.2.). This is making it difficult to follow the instructions to link the PC client to my redundant iPhone 5s which I want to use as a static security camera. Using the browse feature in the NetCam Studio X (ONVIF Source tab under the Add a new camera icon, using the LAN search), I can locate the iPhone’s IP address and it’s added to the Network Camera tab. But then I’ve run into problems - what HTTP port, RTSP port & Source should I use to link to the iPhone from the PC? I’ve tried various HTTP port settings (8100, 8080), but when I click on Test Connection, the app just hangs/freezes & I have to use Task Manager to stop NetCamStudio X running - which is why I’m wondering if there’s a bug? My firewall is correctly configured to allow NetCamStudio.exe through it and the iPhone app appears to be working fine.

All help much appreciated many thanks Ballyhooo
