Any volunteers for checking out the Nossob and Addo cams while I do Orpen and Satara :dance: ?

Dear All

There are some gremlins in the network preventing the images from our webcams to be uploaded to the web server. The webcams are all fine and online and I can 'see' them all here from Pretoria on our Wide Area Network (WAN).

See below that the cams are up and running (check the date/time stamp in the viewer):

Satara:
Image

Orpen:
Image

Nossob:
Image

Addo:
Image

I know the above does not help you a lot but at least there is nothing wrong with the cams or the communication links to the webcams. The problem seems to be security related to get the images 'out' of our network to the webcam server in the USA.

Thanks for all the offers to assist in physically fixing the webcams on site in Kruger, Kgalagadi and Addo but they are all fine (see above)! :wink:

We hope to have an update soon!
Regards
