If you use lastpass...
« on: May 06, 2014, 09:39:38 AM »

If you use lastpass watch out when you are setting up the camera.  Depending on how you have lastpass set up LP will try to fill in blank forms you don't want filled.

This is especially important on the ADVANCED page where you can change your password.  Lastpass just changed filled in the appropriate blank forms and committed them to be active and I have no idea what lastpass entered as the updated password.

The way to avoid this is to enter lastpass setup and enter the following (or similar depending on your setup) urls into the various categories of exceptions for form filling.

The page to enter as an exception is the first page that shows up when you click "MAINTENANCE".  It's listed as "ADMIN" in the menu, but the url is called 'advanced.htm'.   

Since I use a static IP and dedicated port for my setup, the url I needed to add to the exceptions looked like this (note:  "hxxp" is really "http".)
 
hxxp://192.168.1.20:9897/advanced.htm

Most people will probably have something similar to the following:

hxxp://192.168.1.20/advanced.htm

Check your browser history to see how your your urls are formatted for everything that comes before 'advanced.htm'.

In lastpass I added the url as an exception for these categories:

  • "Never Add Site"
  • "Never Generate Password"
  • "Never Fill Forms"
  • "Never AutoLogin"

The other pages that can generate surprises with lastpass include the "email" and "network" settings pages.  To add those pages as exceptions use the same format as I outlined for 'advanced.htm' only using "network.htm" or "email.htm" instead of 'advanced.htm'.

hxxp://192.168.1.20/network.htm
hxxp://192.168.1.20/email.htm

Hopefully you'll never run into this problem.  But, if you do this is the workaround.

As it turns out .... I went back and did some more poking around and figured out that lastpass gave my camera a blank (no characters at all) password.  So, if you ever find yourself locked out of your camera because of the password, try a blank field and see if it works.

One important footnote:  The blank password will only be accepted when you log into the interface directly from a browser.  If you go through the mydlink.com site to access your settings, the site won't allow you to enter a password that has zero characters.
