Someone just pm'd me about this same camera lol.Guys, i need some help please..
I bought a couple of HDBW4431R-ZS that came in English firmware "originally" but right after i hard reset two of them, they've changed to Chinese language grrr..and needless to say it need them in English in order to work with. So i've been following this thread to upgrade the firmware DH_IPC-HX4XXX-Eos using IP ConfigTool port: 3800 but it doesn't appear to take it, because web UI is still in Chinese (FW 2.420.0.21).
I saw some of you guys saying connect the camera using either telnet, shh..But i can't quite get telnet to work, on all of my computers??!! Always run into this error" Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed" each time despite telnet is enable and running, firewall is off.
What i'm trying to accomplish is rather simple - turn these damn cameras back to English, i don't necessarily need to flash upgrade the firmware.
So any suggestion is greatly appreciated as i'm kind of lost here..
Follow https://www.ipcamtalk.com/showthread...-Enable-Telnet to telnet into the camera.
and use configtool to flash firmware on port 3800 <- important
you should see why it is failing in telnet, copy and paste this log to me.
Oh, post all the version information from the camera too.
