We are currently using Netcam Studio for 3 network cameras. When using Netcam Studio Server X to run the software rather than the service, everything works fine.
If we use the Netcam Studio Service the client is unable to view any of our cameras, even from the machine that has Netcam installed using 127.0.0.1 to connect. We get an error which says “Could not connect to Netcam Studio Server” even from the same server using 127.0.0.1. We are using 2 Foscam 960p Cameras and a D-Link 720p Camera. We have another installation in another location which does not have this issue and from what we can see, its setup in the same way - the same OS (Windows 2012 R2 x64), same hardware etc. There only real difference is the Foscam cameras in the second location are a different model - the Dlink is the same model.
Currently, we have tried:
Disabling Windows firewall and also setting all zones to allow all traffic.
Reinstalling Netcam Studio on the same machine
Creating a brand new machine and setting up in the same way
Fully patching windows
