        Host name = domain.tld, Path = domain.tld/myfolder
    I can't seem to get the right combination for the 2230. And it doesn't seem to accept "/" so no multilevel folders?

    AND using the Setup Wizard for Motion Detection by ftp, I am told "Error: IP Address Is Unlicensed." What on earth does that mean? I've been otherwise ftp'ing to my server for years.
    Oh, and I can not seem to select any area to be subject to motion detection. Tried Safari, Firefox, Chrome ...
