Unable to Connect IP Camera to a Seatalkhs Switch
This thread is being posted to obtain input for a solution to connectivity issues with an IP camera, model number IRIS 710.

The camera is connected to a Seatalkhs switch which in turn connects to two e125 MFD’s, neither of which are able to detect the camera. In addition, the green light where the CAT5 Ethernet cable connects does not illuminate green indicating no communication.

One complication is that the disc containing the manufacturer’s IRIS Centre Software intended to communicate to the IRIS 710 camera was damaged precluding the ability to run the software.
The IRIS 710’s Installation and Operation guide states the camera will adopt an IP address provided by the Router / DHCP server.

Question: is the Seatalkhs switch the same thing as a Router / DHCP server and are there any other suggestions to resolve this issue?

RE: Unable to Connect IP Camera to a Seatalkhs Switch
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Tom,

Raymarine network switches are not routers. To borrow from a Cisco FAQ on this subject, "switches create a network. Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the Internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it's received quickly."

Compatibility of Raymarine's a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs with third party IP cameras is far from guaranteed. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject.
