Re: Camera security question

That's pretty much what I thought. Securing against the known issues may not be very difficult, but, I don't know what I don't know. There are entire industries dedicated to finding and guarding against stuff like this (think about the Stuxnet story). Rather than playing whac-a-mole with the hack of...

Camera security question

After lots of searching, I haven't found much detail on why some Chinese made cameras were banned, and if ZoneMinder users are concerned about them. Most of the articles mention insecure back doors and generally taking over the camera. Why would we buy something like that? However, some of these cam...

Re: Chinese camera question

While searching, I saw a comment that implied the security concerns of Chinese camera's have been discussed/debated extensively. They implied the subject had been put to rest and I could simply google for the conclusions; no such luck, so, here I am. I thought the comment was in a ZM wiki, but just ...

Chinese camera question

I understand the Chinese built cameras (Hikvision , Dahua, Huawei, ZTE, etc.) that were banned in government offices have been reconciled here. Can someone point me to some discussion threads on it?

Re: Can't create new user

I checked the instructions on the GIT site and decided to drop back to the current stable version from the iconner site. Now I have V-1.32.3, which seems to work fine. Thanks for the help,

Re: Can't create new user

Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for updates. Hmmm, I didn't pick the version, apt-get grabbed whatever was configured for Ubuntu 18.04. 18.04 is pretty different....I wonder if 1.33.x is required for it?

Can't create new user

I'm new to ZM and just installed it on an Ubuntu 18.04 box. Admin user exists (by default); I'm trying to create a new user. Select Options > Users > Click on "Add New User" button. The button is grey-ed out, seems to clicks, but nothing happens. Is there a way to enable it? Note: I followed this gu...
