I had to change the password on an axis camera with the latest firmware, v9 something, and had only the security restricted internet explorer on a windows server available. I was expecting it to deny me the live view etc, but that I would be able to get into the menu system and change the password anyway. In stead, all I got was a page telling me to use firefox, chrome, safari or edge. After trying a couple of things, wasting time, I had to climb up to the camera with my laptop to get between the switch and the camera with a poe pass trough adapter. Btw I was not allowed to install anything on the server, and the network switches did not allow me into the network with my laptop.
This is rather annoying, and wasted a lot of my time. It is understandable that there is no point in continuing to support IE for live video and configuring motion detection and stuff like that. But why is there absolutely no way to do the simple stuff, like configuring network settings, time or passwords with an unsupported web browser? A simple, static html menu system and form is not hard to do. They used to have one.
If someone know of a hack to bypass the stupid web browser check, or have some other way of changing the simple settings on an axis camera, using only the stuff that comes with a restricted windows server install, please tell me. I am bound to end up in the same situation at some point, and would love to come prepared.
