    hey, i have a webcam but it wont connect to other webcams all the time. It will connect to some other cams but not everyone! I use a uni connection and think this is the case... is there something i can do to make it work for everyone?

    Hiya

    This may be the firewall setup that was installed by the University. If everyone was connected at the same time, this would slow their server down.

    When it connects to say webcams A-D, but not E-G, what happens if you drop the connection to A-D? Can you connect to E-G?

    If so, it looks like they've set a limit on the amount to use. You may have to contact the Admin or IT dept.

    Regards
