D-Link IP Cameras for Home > DCS-2670L

FTP Issues

(1/6) > >>

BigKitty10:
I normally consider myself well versed in technological components, but there is something about FTP that I just loath.

Nonetheless I pushed through the pain of windows firewall, and managed to setup a FTP server for my cameras. (QUICK NOTE) Those FTP shares are also shares on my SMB server.

After setting up the FTP options on the D-LINK Camera web page, I pressed the test button to test my FTP connection. After which I said "Test Ok".

But then after saving the settings and pressing the test button again, it now shows "Test Error"!!!!

I really wish this camera would allow me to use SMB shares, but whatever.

Can anyone please explain this to me as to why the camera would be able to write something to the FTP shares, save the settings, and then not be able to?!

Thank you for your time!

* What Hardware version is your DCS? Look at the sticker behind or under the camera.
* Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DCSs web page under status.
* What region are you located?
What Mfr and model is the main host router?
Be sure your shares are set up and configured to be able to write too.
Have you tried letting the camera record something to the FTP share?

have EXACT the same issue; I have 3 other Dlink 932 cams which work fine with my FTP server (WD Book),
but for some reason the 2670 (just bought, latest 2.00 driver/firmware) changes the password.
FI: If I set my password to 1234, save, and reload the page the password is now 10 characters long.
And also the same behavior; BEFORE saving a test is OK but when saving and test again I get an error.
The save function somehow changes the password in the browsers software.

PLEASE if you found a solution tell me because I bought this expensive cam as a surveillance cam and now
only can use the SD card function which is not safe (if camera is stolen= video gone).
I guess this has to be patched with a new firmware since I tested this with 3 different browsers with the same result.
Also changing my FTP to only username (no password) didn't work.
All other Dlink cams with the same sort like browser interface have no issues at all with the FTP.

Can someone look into this, seems not many users reported this so it could be a minor thing like browser settings or so?
ANY help to solve this would be much appreciated!

* What region are you located?
What browser are you using? Have you tried IE11, FF or Opera when doing the save function?

I used latest IE and Chrome (all other things work fine in both browsers, also video)

The thing is all other Dlinks 932 cams work flawless with the same interface
