The zone is calculated to consist of a number of pixels. The percentage relates to THIS number of pixels (Not of the whole image). So if you had a zone that covered 5% of a 320x240 image, then that zone would be 3840 pixels in size. If you set your min alarm pixel threshold to 8%, then you would ne...

Re: Clarification of using percentages when working with zon

2) I currently have ZM_CREATE_ANALYSIS_IMAGES enabled and from reading the help for this setting it says 'during an alarm ZoneMinder records both the raw captured image and one that has been analysed and had areas where motion was detected outlined'. However, looking in my event folders I am findin...

Sure am - being quite rigorous in that regard (even restarting the browser to ensure the authentication starts from scratch each time). Incidentally, when I was using ZM's built-in authentication AUTH_RELAY was set to Hashed so it was working fine then if that's any clue...? Mathew P.S. Don't bust a...

Hmmm... It's AUTH_RELAY causing me the problem. If set to None then all is well - Apache HTTP authentication works fine, ZM console fires up fine and I can view/do everything. However, if AUTH_RELAY is set to Hashed then Apache auth is fine, ZM console fine, stills fine, but anything involving the z...

Ahh... Just in case I send you off scratching your head I've just set AUTH_RELAY to None and AUTH_HASH_IPS to disabled and it's working. Will now investigate which if these was causing my issue (and why) but thought I'd better tell you as there's nothing worse than trying to solve someone's problem ...

I'm trying HTTP authentication but am hitting the proverbial brick wall... I've configured ZM for remote authentication (AUTH_TYPE) and left AUTH_RELAY as hashed. Apache is now configured as: <Directory "/var/www/zm/"> . . AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Area - Username and Password Required" Au...

True, however even if Apache's auto-indexing is disabled (or otherwise ignored via a custom default.htm/index.htm file entry) the file naming format is fixed (okay, so it can be changed but I wonder how many do) hence it can easily be guessed (or even brute forced). I hope this isn't taken as any cr...

Privacy issues of a default authenticated configuration?

Whilst OPT_USE_AUTH is (I believe) disabled by default I'm sure many/most people enable this to afford themselves some privacy with their ZM installation (in addition to shaping individual access rights). However, I see that /events/ and /images/ are viewable by everyone (authenticated or not) and n...

When I try that (or a variation thereof) I'm still be prompted for the username/password - should this definitely work as intended?

Peter,

Any development on the Ubuntu package?

Clarification of using percentages when working with zones?

Firstly, may I take this opportunity to say what an amazing application ZoneMinder is - thanks to the Dapper Wiki guide I was up-and-running in only a couple hours (hey, that's quick for me!). Indeed, within a day it had achieved its initial intention and caught a perpetrator in the act and gave me ...
