    Hello Aled Jones,

    First, try using the ONVIF Device Manager tool.

    Please check THIS article and follow the steps described in it.

    Then let us know the results.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your swift response!

    Shortly after posting this message I thought id run a scan to search for cameras using their default login credentials...and believe it or not it worked!

    I am still using the modified credentials to log into the webfront of the camera as well as using these credentials on another NVR, yet NX will only connect to them via their default credentials....

    so i assume there is an ONVIF account in the cameras that still has the default password despite there not being a menu to change it!

    Thanks for your information, it may be useful in other similar posts.

    If I understood you correctly, you were able to add cameras.
    If so, can we change the status of the post to "Answered"?

    Consider my question answered! 

    Worth noting the cameras that are only connecting via their default credentials are around 5 Years old. 

    we haven't experienced similar issues with more recent Dahua cameras.

    Hi Aled Jones,

    If only the default credentials are accepted, while others that were set aren't accepted, I would check if this could be resolved with newer firmware.
