Re: ftp .dav files?

Won't that disable the DVR recording on the internal hard drive? I don't want to do that. I just want to stop the FTP.DAV files

Re: ftp .dav files?

Re: Details on how FTP works on AMDV108116

ftp .dav files?

I've got the 16 ch Amcrest DVR HD TVI etc

What are these files? And how can I disable their upload and just have .jpg uploads?

I see this item:

"Alarm Upload: This checkbox allows the user to enable the system to upload alarm information when motion triggered/video loss/etc."

Is the "alarm upload" the ftp enable function? It's unclear.

Re: Details on how FTP works on AMDV108116

Some items I can't find in the manual...

Can the periodic ftp be set on a per-camera/channel basis? If so, how?

Re: IP login

Not enough info, but you won't be able to login unless you are on the local network.. if you're on the outside you have to set up NAT on your router. If you are on the local network, make sure you're specifying the same port the camera is on.
