Wondering if anyone else has had this issue with the ZMD-DD-SAN8 DVR box?
My PC is running Windows 10 - 64 Bit Pro. 16 gig ram, 4TB hard drive space available, using Google Chrome, FireFox and Edge. Network router is a Netgear WNDR4500v2.
Hardware Version: 1.0.1
Software Version: 1.3.8
Release Date: 2013.07.02
I have 3 cameras attached to the DVR unit and it is recording away, no issues at all. It’s when I try to remote in is where I am having problems.
My DVR box is connected to my network via a static IP address (192.168.1.5). As per the network tutorial I have opened all; four ports (80, 5050, 6050, 7050) and can see them via the open port checker tool. Everything is perfectly setup there. I have also disabled my firewall/virus checker to make sure it is not blocking anything. I can ping the DVR box and receive a response.
When I try to access the web software via the DVRs IP address, nothing. The browser tab says “Web Client for EDS ED…”. The browser screen remains totally blank. When I use IE, the login window appears for the DVR, I enter it, hit login and nothing happens. Even followed the security instructions to disable ActiveX etc.
I tried using ZViewer and doing a network search renders no results. I try to manually add the DVR via the IP tab, and it claims a login failure. Tried using NVMS, no luck either. I add the DVR in, but the software says the DVR is offline. Both apps running in Admin mode.
Tried using the tool via my Android phone, cannot login either either, but can ping the DVR.
Is it just a case of needing to throw away the DVR and buy a more modern unit? Surely there must be a firmware upgrade to bring this box up to 2016.
Any ideas? Am I missing something?
