Re: AutoLogin via link or hash ?

Well, in that is the rub. Zoneminder specifically says it can receive passed authentication tokens from http basic auth, however, it does not appear to be the case. Still digging into that one to be honest. I will let you know what I find out, but at this point it will not have the ability to handle...

Re: Interesting picture

I have seen it before, not with zoneminder however, but it is caused by jpeg corruption. If this occurs only when the IR cutter is moving, it may be a limitation of the camera to handle the "flashing" from the transition of the cutter. Does this clear up as the imagery "calms down"? Do you have mult...

Re: AutoLogin via link or hash ?

Sorry for the delay, I did manage to get this working as requested in a VM on CentOS (Apache config should be OS independent). Here is how I was able to do it: 1. Disable authentication with zoneminder UI completely 2. Edit your apache configuration for zoneminder, CentOS path is /etc/httpd/conf.d/z...

Re: AutoLogin via link or hash ?

I would give this a try, (not going to promise anything because I have not tested and I do not have a sandbox zoneminder box) But.....create a user with read only access to events first, something complex as it will be embeded in the URL. Then change the following in the "Options" Under System: chan...

Zone Groups with Time Windows

I believe it would be a nice addition to have something like "zone groups" where you would create a group with a name, IE (Day) and add zones to the group (just like adding zones currently) and then the group itself would have a validity period (IE 9a - 6p) or something, maybe with IR filter detecti...

I created a filter that runs in the background to delete those. It doesnt "fix" anything, but it saves my event history

Re: connect camera via https

SSL has a timeout, you will most likely be able to use the secured stream for a limited amount of time before the connection must close. I take it when you say "Public Web" you are indicating the internet? You may want to offload the encryption onto a device (or devices) designed to create secured t...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Hello, I am a network engineer, I had a similar problem and I found that TCP retransmissions were the root cause of the problem. You can validate this by installing tcpdump and tcptrace on your linux box (look for them in your package manager) then use the following filter: $ tcpdump -i [interface] ...

I admin a number of MySQL boxes and unfortunately I have run across this in the past. Quite annoying to say the least. You are looking for bug 34312 as reported to MySQL, ensure you are encountering this box and follow the work around provided by the developers. The bug report is below: http://bugs....

Re: Install from source error on Ubuntu Server 10.04.

Yes I definitely tried that, I believe it came down to the gcc compiler. The STDIO library in later versions (guessing here) must be implied. Something was out of date on this box and apt wasnt updating it for some reason. I didnt go through the sources to check if everything was current, I just wan...

Re: Cannot add new monitor, grayed out

2 things come to mind quickly, either you are logged into a system where the username does not have the rights or zoneminder is not in a Running state

Re: zm.config - users

Yes, a file can only have 1 owner, but you can assign users to groups and give them rights if you want. Be careful though, configuration files generally are very restricted. You can see the following documentation on how to add users to groups: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-linux-add-user-to-gr...
