Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • Endura UDI5000-MTRX All Versions
  • Endura Workstation software (WS5000, WS5200) All Versions

Cause

Verification that the UDI5000-MTRX can see the Endura Scripts is needed for troubleshooting purposes.

Resolution

The web configuration service receives the list of scripts from the device data service when the "Alarms/Macros" section of the web configuration is active. The device data service, in turn, receives the list from the system manager. The device data service is somewhat accessible on port 8400.

To view the list of Endura scripts, as seen by the UDI5000-MTRX:

  1. Open a web browser and enter http://[ip address of UDI]:8400/device/scripts into the URL field.
    Example: http://192.168.5.160:8400/device/scripts
  2. Unlike other calls to the device data service, this will return an xml file, which the web browser will render as a blank screen.
  3. To view the list of scripts, simply right click and choose View Source. (Will be View Page Source in Chrome and Firefox).
