Hi,
I've got ad hoc network pc -> switch -> 3 cameras.
I have programmed all cameras, I can connect from PC to cameras, see the view, etc, but I don't know how to configure this network to record videos to hard drive. I know PC's IP, but even when I type http://ip address in browser there is no connection.
What should I do?
 
It depends on the capabilities and network protocols supported by the cameras. They wouldn’t be saving anything via a http protocol. More likely via FTP or SMB. Many should also have settings to save the files to Dropbox and the likes.

Alternatively via the onvif protocol cameras can be controlled and have their data stored on a NVR solution. For example some of mine go direct to my Synology NAS.

The client has no internet connection or sd cards, they want to record to the hard drive.

I've stated in the topic question, network dome cameras 1080vfd, connected by CAT6a cables, OS Vista, the problem is - they don't see computer IP to record it.

Might be some silly thing in the network.

No you did not state what cameras they are. From this message one can deduct a model number. As such I assume it is the
Vista VK2-1080VFD/WCW IP

It’s specs indicate that under normal circumstances it streams, can perform edge recording on the SD card. But also upload files in an “alarm” situation using HTTP or FTP. So the key question is; have you got an FTP server running on your computer? And have you opened port 21 on its firewall. Without that it would not be seeing anything.
