View Atlas Based Cameras using a web browser.

Issue

The Atlas based products use Port 80 to respond to HTTP requests. This becomes a problem when users are using a web browser to view multiple cameras on a private network behind a router.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • IP110 Series
  • IP3701 Series
  • Spectra IV IP Mpeg4
  • Spectra MINI IP Series

Cause

These cameras were originally intended to work on private networks and to be viewed from within that network.

Resolution

To avoid this issue with NAT/PAT it is also recommended to use VPN when utilizing a network from the internet. Through VPN, more than one camera may be viewed in that network, as the VPN Client is part of that network on a virtual LAN.
