I followed these instructions Using Netcam Studio Service and after a couple of weeks the server stops working. I turn the PC off and back on and I still can’t access the server. When I first configured it the server worked well after restarting the machine so the service was being started properly after a full machine restart.
The main problem I have is the machine is away from my home nor I can access it, I can only ask somebody to bring me the machine and see what happens, weird scenario isn’t it?
The PC has access to the network as I programmed a little Ruby program to upload the dynamic IP to a DNS server and I see the records are being changed so I know the machine has access to the internet.
The cameras are in the same local network as the computer is and the network is okay as I can access the D-LINK cameras directly by typing the IP and port of each one.
I’m not keen on sysadmin and I’m specially bad with Windows.
What could I do to evaluate what’s going on and ultimately prevent this from happening again?
Thanks a lot.
