[KBA-01412] Reactivating basic authentication for the RTSP protocol

This article explains how to reactivate basic authentication for the RTSP protocol after selecting HTTPS communication for a camera.

Summary

Starting with Security Center 5.4 GA, when selecting HTTPS communication for a camera, basic authentication for the RTSP protocol is disabled by default. This behavior applies to all camera extensions that support HTTPS, including:
  • Axis
  • GenericPlus
  • Genetec Protocol
  • Panasonic
  • Sony

If your camera only supports basic authentication for the RTSP protocol, you must reactivate it to stream video.

  1. In Config Tool, open the Video task, select the Archiver, and click Extensions.

  4. Click Add an item ().
  5. In the Name field, type AllowRtspBasicAuthentication.
