Make sure you check the box in settings called “Allow other computers to sync to this computer “ and set the logging level to debug. This should do the trick.One of my cameras has a wrong date and time (year 2018!). How can I check to see if it's trying to connect or failing to connnect? The net time log doesn't show any camera activity at all.
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Defender Firewall\Allowed apps ....then uncheck NetTime under Public (Note you may have to "Allow another app"... if NetTime is not listed there)Turning the public firewall off fixes it. Not sure what the work around would be to have a rule so firewall can be on.
If you click on Allow another app below the Window showing the programs, there should be an option to select any application installed on your computer. You just have to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\NetTime or wherever you installed it.Interestingly, I don't see NetTime listed. But I think the issue is caused because my second NIC is an "unidentified network" which defaults to public and can't be changed to private.
Even allowing nettime service though the firewall does not solve the problem. Only turning off the firewall for public allows it to work.If you click on Allow another app below the Window showing the programs, there should be an option to select any application installed on your computer.

UPDATE - went back and reread everything to see if I missed something and my old "not an IT guy" would kick me. Someone else had to do this so that old curmudgeons motto of "when in doubt, reboot" still holds true. All working as expected after reboot. Thanks again,Assuming that you're running it on the BI PC? In that case use the local IP for that machine.
Check services for W32Time and stop/disable it if it's running. It will have grabbed port 123 already.
If it stops when you have the firewall up, create a rule to allow UDP port 123.
Nvr is recording the cam stream. However it's a an unrelated different brandFirst, this thread is about using a software application on a PC, NetTime, to operate as a time server for IP cameras on the LAN.
Yes, you're seeing one of many reasons why IP cameras should not have direct access to the Internet.
How are you viewing/recording the cameras now, through a NVR or a PC?
Ideally the NVR would get the correct time and the cams get it from the NVR, but if they're not the same brand or the NVR is not a POE NVR then that likely won't work.Nvr is recording the cam stream. However it's a an unrelated different brand
