Apologies if this has been raised before - if it has I cannot find it!
In DSCam for the ipad when setting up Direct Camera Access you are asked to add a Path. There is no expalnation in the help screen as to what this path is or more importantly how to find it out. I have seen several posts asking "what is the path for camera XXX" and the answsr tend to offer several possibilities (depending on camera make or typy (?)).
Could somebody out there provide the following for me and sememingly countless other users:
1. What is a Path? What does it refer to?
2. How can you find out what your path is? Do you need to logon to the server in command line mode to do this and if so what are the steps.
3. When entering the path what exactly do you have to type in. My impression is that it should be a long path name but most mesage board entries are shorthanding it down to the last parameter.
Where on thsi bulleting board can I submit a request to Synology to address this gap in their help file and user manual?
I have a DS211J and an INSTAR 3011 Ip Camera.
For the record the Instar 3011 works if you set it up using the default 3010 option. The only problem I have found is that the pan left and right seem to be reversed. I can access the camera using surveillence station within my home wireless network using my IP and DScam. I can also access it remotely (only) via a browser session to surveillance station and also to the camera direct - so my router set up is OK. What seems to be the issue with remote IPad access is this Path parameter.
Thanks in advance for any help or light you can shine on this.
