Sarix version 1.9.2.1 reduces the SSDP (UPnP) traffic time for discovery broadcasts on Network.

Issue

After upgrading my camera to version 1.9.2.1, I lost SSDP.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • Spectra IV H.264
  • Sarix model cameras ALL
  • NET5400 series Endura Encoders

Cause

The broadcast time has been lowered  for the SSDP traffic (UPnP) so that Networks with greater numbers of cameras and Endura devices weren't flooded with UPnP traffic/broadcasts.

Resolution

There is no way to change this. The traffic for UPnP/SSDP has been restricted on purpose in version 1.9.2.1 to help Pelco Sarix IP cameras work better on Networks with greater numbers of IP cameras. If there is a desire for faster UPnP discovery, downgrade to a previous version.
