I have a wireless-netcam (surecom nl-401) that I want to allow access to
my file-server for uploading of images to an archive.
My AP (a Dlink DWL-900AP+) is connected to a separate interface on my
m0n0wall that's going to be setup with captive portal.
What would be concidered the bets way to accomplish that?
1) Setup the webcam on a static IP (dhcp for easy handling) and
firewalling so it only can connect to the ftp-server. The cam can be
setup to push new images to the ftp-server automatically.
No extra load is cenerated on the server in case of no connection
the ftp-credentials can be found on air, and the mac/ip hijacked
2) Setup the webcam on a static IP (dhcp for easy handling) and
firewalling so no connections out is possible, and let the server pull
no credentials on air except eventually a readonly-access to the cam
the server has to do more error-handling in case of missing connection.
Furthermore the cammera will be accessible from the world via a
http-proxy for pulling realtime images ad videos.
Any tips/arguments on the best solution?
