ONVIF - Multiple Ethernet Ports

Post by Pedulla » Sat Mar 04, 2017 4:35 am

1.30.2 Test results

ONVIF seems to only probe the ethernet interface the Web Site is on.
I typically build a separate network adapter for the "camera net" for various reasons.

Is this expected behavior?
Can ONVIF have the option to search a particular network or ethernet port?

We have an open issue on github for this.

I looked into this previously and the perl-io-multicast module documentation states it is sends out messages on all interfaces if none is specified. Since this isn't happening, further research must be done into why it isn't. Something is probably setting the interface before it is called, but troubleshooting the onvif perl script is rather convoluted. This is one of many issues that isn't a priority, not because we don't want to fix it, but we simply have got higher priorities to work on. Anyone else is welcome to try and fix this.

Any movement towards a fix with this? I'm having the same issue. I've tried setting a static route for out the Camera network interface, but it makes no difference. The probe only uses the interface used by the web page.
