Networking Extraordinaire :

Did that bring it up?

Customer :

its loading and loading...

Customer :

and it shows nothing

Networking Extraordinaire :

Ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

That means that it is not setup correctly.

Networking Extraordinaire :

I am not sure what is not correct.

Customer :

Networking Extraordinaire :

Networking Extraordinaire :

What happens?

Customer :

Customer :

as a comand

Networking Extraordinaire :

Oh ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

Please, look at the QSee configuration and verify that you are using the ports 80 and 6036

Customer :

it shows it

Networking Extraordinaire :

"What" shows it?

Customer :

80 and 6036

Networking Extraordinaire :

I am asking what you are looking at that tells you that.

Customer :

Network page: Http port: 80, Server port: 6036

Networking Extraordinaire :

Ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

But when you click this link, it does not work? http://192.168.1.200:6036

Customer :

not, its just loading forever

Customer :

I will give you everything what I have on page NETWORK, please wait a min

Networking Extraordinaire :

thank you

Customer :

http port: 80, Server port: 6036, Obtain an IP address automatically: blank, IP Address: 192.168.001.200, Subnet: 255.255.255.0., Gateway: 192.168.001.001, DNS Server: 000.000.000.000, Alternate: 000.000.000.000., PPPoE: blank, User name: blank, Password: blank, test

Networking Extraordinaire :

Is the PPPoE option chosen or is dynamic chosen?

Customer :

PPPoE is not marked and there is nothing like dynamic, I mean on the Q-See, not on the computer I am chating with you

Networking Extraordinaire :

ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

This is strange.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Just to double check, the following link does not work? http://192.168.1.200

Customer :

no, it does not

Networking Extraordinaire :

ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

On the Qsee configuration, are you positive that you enabled the system correctly?

Customer :

I just sent you the config it shows, tell me what to do and I will follow

Customer :

do you want me to choose the default and apply and exit?

Networking Extraordinaire :

The information you gave me shows all correct.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Do you have it set to enable remote viewing?

Customer :

where can I see that?

Networking Extraordinaire :

Please, go to the following site: http://canyouseeme.org/

Networking Extraordinaire :

Put port number 80 in the "What port" field and click the CHECK button below that.

Customer :

it says: Error: I could not see your service on 69.117.208.2 on port (80)
Reason: Connection timed out

Networking Extraordinaire :

Ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

Is this a new system?

Customer :

its 6 mts old so its new

Networking Extraordinaire :

As of right now, it does not even work on the same network.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Have you ever gotten it to work?

Customer :

right

Customer :

never tried

Networking Extraordinaire :

There is nothing else that could possibly not make it work. You can ping by IP but cannot access the Web server on the same network.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Would getting a refund for this device be an option?

Networking Extraordinaire :

It doesn't appear to be functioning correctly.

Customer :

well I thought you are an expert...

Networking Extraordinaire :

I am.

Networking Extraordinaire :

I cannot repair things that are hardware faulted from a far.

Customer :

and you cannot figure out how to configure it???

Networking Extraordinaire :

I am telling you that it is already configured correctly.

Customer :

so why it does not work?

Networking Extraordinaire :

You cannot access it on the same network, which means either it is non-functional or you are not giving me the correct information.

Customer :

I AM GIVING YOU CORRECT INFO !

Networking Extraordinaire :

I have set up scores of camera systems. If it does not work on the same network; as yours is, then that is a problem with the actual device and cannot be 'fixed' because it is a hardware issue.

Customer :

THANK YOU

Networking Extraordinaire :

I know that you are giving me the correct information, that is why I am suggesting that the device itself is hardware faulted.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Thank you.

Networking Extraordinaire :

You may click the Accept button now and leave any feedback for me that you feel is appropriate.

Thank you,
- Jason

Networking Extraordinaire :

Is there anything else I can help with today?

Networking Extraordinaire :

I have run out of ideas.

For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

I wish you luck // Peace.
