Foscam and Internet Explorer

Postby blockmanjohn » Thu Jun 27, 2013 3:30 pm

Is there a trick to accessing my camera using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer? When I try to login I get a box that says no valid digital signature, one of the counter signatures is not valid. I don't know what any of this means but would like to get around it.

The reason I want to use IE is that it allows multiple cameras to be accessed, while Firefox, which I am currently using, does not.

Any help would be appreciated. Also, I apologize if this was addressed in a prior post, but I could not find it. Thanks, John

There is a Chrome extension called "IE tab" that supports active X and will allow you access to the multidev features on the camera.

I installed the IE tab in my Chrome browser and was able to open my camera in it. It gave me the active x screen that I was looking for, but I was unable to get any live video feed.The video screen showed a white box with a white "X" in the upper left corner. Is there some thing else I have to do? Thanks for the help,John

When it gives you the log in options log in with the Active X mode. I think you still used the Server push mode. I tried logging in with server push mode while using the Chrome IE Tab and saw a white x like you mentioned.

I was careful to login using the active x mode, and I still get the white box with the white x in the corner. It must be something else that I did wrong.

Problem solved.
It turned out to be a simple security issue. I had to disable active x filtering, and allow certificates from an unknown publisher. It works just fine in IE without having to use the IE tab in the google chrome browser. Thanks for all the help I received, John.
