Command Station Desktop Client is OpenEye’s video management software. It is designed for multi-site monitoring. It can be necessary to determine how the software is connected to the recorders to assist with monitoring, troubleshooting, and auditing. There are three connection types: LAN Smart Forwarding, Direct (Peer to Peer), and through the OWS servers (Relay). See How to Optimize Your OWS Connection Method on connection types.
- Within Command Station, to determine which method is being used, right-click on the recorder name and select device info.
- This will pop up a window that will display the connection information under Connection.
- See the article OWS Network Requirements for more information on the different types of connections and their requirements.
