DCS920: SMTP settings: Can't send mail
« on: February 23, 2010, 06:52:44 PM »

I need to seek help from the export here.

I'm facing a problem in configuring email setting in DCS 920. I'm using GMail account as below:
server: smtp.gmail.com
port: 587

However, I couldn't find any place in the DCS920 settings to enable TLS or authetication info.

How can I configure my GMail to send picture when DCS920 is scheduled?



 SMTP Server Address : smtp.gmail.com
 SMTP Server Port  (Default is 25) :587
 Sender E-mail Address: xxxx@gmail.com
 Receiver E-mail Address:  xxxx@hotmail.com
 User Name:  xxxx@gmail.com
 Password: ******

Poor..... means I can't use gmail, yahoo, hotmail mail server?
Now I can receive the scheduled image after configuring streamyx as the mail server.
Thanks for your help.

I works, but not on all types... 'Standard' SMTP is peachy!

The supported protocols are mentioned on the product-info on the website, on the box of the device and in the manual. If, for some reason, the protocol you need is not supported, then you can either:
1. Live for it and wait for a firmware-release, supporting the protocol, or
2. Return the item and look for one that does support your required protocol, or
3. Live with it and use other means or work-arounds (and there are plenty)

Ad 1. If the product is older, then the chances of an appropriate firmware-upgrade diminish with time... This means that options 2 or 3 are probably the only way to go. I have not seen that many IP-cams that support your required protocol.

So I wish you good luck, whatever way you are going in the future.

P.S. The subject of this thread relates to the DCS920... But same limitations apply, alas.
