I have a soft trigger that I set up that allows me to activate and deactivate a cameras' privacy mask.
The soft trigger triggers an http request sent to a Hikvision camera using ISAPI commands.
I have the rule working successfully when executing it from a client that is directly installed on the server, but the soft trigger is failing when trying to execute it via a remote client.
The Server has 2 NICs. One is for the camera network only, and the other is for the company data network. All camera remote viewing is routed to the clients via the data network NIC. The camera network is isolated except for the server connection.
My first thought was that the reason for failure is because the remote client does not have access to the isolated camera network. I don't think that is the case though as I have other deployments where I'm utilizing soft triggers to activate ControlByWeb relays that are also configured in the same way where the CBW relay is in an isolated network, yet the soft trigger activates those relays successfully. This leads me to understand that the trigger is executed by the server and should therefore work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
