Setup remote webcam server and access the remote webcam
PhenoCapture allows a user to connect to a remote webcam to view image real time when internet connection is available.
The software has two windows: one for a server side and the other for a client side.
1. First of all, connect a webcam.
2. Secondly, setup webcam server
Open 'Remote webcam server' window * Menu > Tool > Remote webcam server
You can set Port number, User ID and Password (left arrow). The default setting will work well.
Then, click on the 'Start' button to activate a server (right arrow).
* If there is a conflict of port number, try other number such as 41, 42, 43,...
3. Thirdly, execute PhenoCapture on other computer and setup a client.
Open 'Remote webcam client' window * Menu > Tool > Remote webcam client
Set IP address, Port number, User ID, and Password of a server computer (left arrow)
* Unauthorized connection using incorrect User ID and Password will be rejected by the server.
Click on the 'Connect' button (right arrow).
You will see transferred image from a server as shown in 'Remote webcam viewer' window.
A user also can set 'Remote desktop screen' option (See arrow).
As shown in the below, full desktop screen will be transferred from a server.
This function is similar like the Windows's 'Remote desktop' program.
If you want to view a remote computer's webcam from external computers,
1. Set up 'public IP address' (which is also known as 'external IP address' like 188.8.131.52) on a computer that has a webcam
2. Run webcam server of PhenoCapture on the computer that has the webcam
3. Run webcam client of PhenoCapture in another computer (=client computer)
