I got apache running on port 80 and 8080 on my box at work. So I ssh tunnel from port 80 (my zoneminder box at home) to port 8081 (my box at work). I whipped out my netbook just now (running Ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix) and tried "ssh <my> -L 80:localhost:80" and then "ssh <my> 8080:localhost:80". I d...

I access Zoneminder by ssh tunnels when I'm at work. I've been doing this from versions 1.22.2 to 1.24.2-svn. I use PuTTy on a Vista desktop at work.

I'm not having any issues. I don't have the bandwidth to run montage but cycle mode is working okay.

From you're other posts, it looks like you were having Ubuntu or Debian package install problems. Those problems are more likely issues with software installation opposed to equipment problems. Here are the detail's of my equipment and installation: Zonminder Box: -AMD AlthonX2 4850e processor - Asr...

The creating of the directory is done in event.cpp. It looks like this: if ( mkdir( path, 0755 ) ) { Error( "Can't mkdir %s: %s", path, strerror(errno)); } This part of the code starts at line# 135 in the latest version on the SVN. To change the group permissions to rw, you'd want to change the 0755...

I haven't had any experience with wireless analog cameras. In my experience with wired analog cameras, the source of interference that looks like that had always been in issue with the AC adapter connected to the camera. AC adapters at the local electronic shops (for me Radio Shack and Fry's) always...

You can set you zones to 'Alarmpixels' or 'Filterpixels' to reduce the complexity of the motion detection algorithm.

You can try enabling the 'FAST_IMAGE_BLENDS' option and disable the 'CREATE_ANALYSIS_IMAGES' ( both found under the 'Config' tab).

I agree with Coke this makes a nice utility that is external to Zoneminder. Zoneminder does allow you to create custom triggers that, to my knowledge, that puts Zoneminder monitors in alarm state (and hence start recording). The only thing that needs to be done to complete the feature you are lookin...

If monitor is working and modect/mocord is not, I can think of two possibilities. Either you need to allocate more shared memory or there is something wrong with the zones for that monitor.

Try allocated a little more shared memory and try replacing the zones for that monitor with a simple zone.

It looks like you're camera has a url to get a snapshot at http://ipcam_url/snapshot.cgi. That might work for Zoneminder with a frame rate around 3-4 fps. You'd want to check if you can get ffmpeg to successfully capture the video stream. Here link to a post of someone able to getting ffmpeg to capt...

It's possible to set up a PC with a phone line modem as a PPP dial-up server that connects you to the local network you're Zoneminder box is on. You can do a search on dial-up ppp server how to's. The slow speed of dial-up is going to be a big obstical to using Zoneminder. You'll need to set the ima...

Go to the 'Config' tab in Zoneminder's options window and uncheck 'V4L_MULTI_BUFFER' option. Then restart Zoneminder.

I think it will be

#ifdef __x86__

or

#ifdef __i386__



Testing for 64bit would be

#ifdef __x86_64__

Oh! It just donned on me. I don't think the time_t value gets modified at all in the functions. If this is a case, you can probably get by changing the time_t to "const time_t". The compiler might be okay with overloading function names with (int,int) and (int, const time_t)

Opps I was thinking inheritance overriding instead of function overloading. It appears the case is that 32-bit time_t is identical to int. The compiler doesn't like it because it can't distinguish the (int, int) and the (int, time_t) functions. There might be an elegant solution to this problem like...
