Wireshark might help but it's a real PIA to use.
Success...............once you got my mind thinking in the right direction about what does what it all made sense. Adding the camera was really simple after that.Tuc2K, have you read the manual for setting up this NVR? The NVR acts like a 2nd router on your system and it is responsible for assigning the IP addresses for all the IP cameras connected to it. Your router will only assign one IP address for the DVR - it does not directly connect your cams. To view any of your cameras via a PC, you will need to log into the NVR directly or use a software program designed for viewing all the cams attached to the NVR.
