Dual Cameras over Ethernet
« on: December 17, 2018, 09:33:10 AM »
Trying to autosave videos to a computer using Ethernet over USB as it is the proposed solution. I am able to do this easily using Python for a single camera, however, when trying to do this for two cameras at the same time connected to the same computer I am running into some IP issues. 

It seems like the static IP address that is built into the camera is preventing me from accessing the second camera.  I have tried assigning a different static IP, however this still does not work.  The first camera that is plugged into the PC is the only one I can access videos on. Has anyone tried anything similar or have any pointers?  Any way to change the static IP on the camera by chance?

Hi mcknight. You're right, you'll need to configure one of the cameras to use a different IP address than the other. To do this, edit the /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/udhcp.conf files on one of your cameras, changing 192.168.12.1 to 192.168.13.1. This should put the camera on a different subnet, which will keep them from fighting each other.

Hope that helps!
