Configuring the Proxy Server

WebCam Monitor requires an internet connection for Remote Monitoring options like Broadcasting and Upload.  In addition, the E-mail Notification alert also requires internet connection.  If you connect to the internet via a proxy server then you must first configure it in WebCam Monitor.

Read the article: View your camera remotely.

To configure the proxy server:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options
  2. Select The RemoteMonitoring
  3. Under Proxy Server, click Configure
  4. Specify the proxy details.  If required, contact your network administrator. 
  5. Click OK.

When configuring the E-mail Notification alert to connect via a proxy server, make sure that you provide an IP address as the mail server.  Providing a host name like "" may not work if WebCam Monitor is not able to resolve the host name to its corresponding IP address.  This usually is the case when using a Proxy server.


When you connect to the internet using a proxy server and you receive a "425 Can't open data connection" error during an upload then you must enable the Use Passive Mode for FTP connection in Upload Settings.
