Title: Hawking HNC290G
Comments: I have 3 of these. They are designed to work with Windows XP, and I have not been able to work them with Win7 or Win10. Unfortunately something has changed and they no longer work with XP, even with a fresh install. They are supposed to come up in your browser but that wants a Java applet. Apparently updates to Java make that incompatible, so I am searching for an IP camera program that will work with these obsolete, but excellent, cameras.
I think older hardware has a lot of vulnerabilities so newer operating systems and programs want you to upgrade. They don't want any roll backs. Given the creation date that camera probably didn't even reach 1MP.
