[KBA-00558] Unable to add a Panasonic WV-SC385 camera in Omnicast™

This article explains why you might be unable to add a Panasonic WV-SC385 in Omnicast™.

Summary

When trying to add a Panasonic WV-SC385 camera in Omnicast™, nothing happens. A telnet session into the Archiver shows an error during your attempt.
