I had a remote camera working without any issues for two years on a BB. The remote camera would send a view shot to the BB and to get an update I would hit "R" and it would refresh. The camera was running full frame to a 6meg DSL line so from a PC connecting to it would be full motion. Well all of a sudden it stopped working. I thought it was the camera so I reloaded the OS on it . No Luck.
Then I played with software on the BB, No luck. SO I upgraded the OS on the BB. Again no Luck.
I set up an Ethernet analyzer on the camera port and found it was indeed sending a few framexxx8217;s . After a little thought I determined it was the Cell network that was blocking the continuous framexxx8217;s . I reset the camera to only send single snap shots on connect or refresh request.
It is now working. I make the assumption that the carrier was blocking the continuous traffic and dropping the data stream. Apparently they now sell the service and figured out a method to block those who do not subscribe.
If you can set it to single frame shots it may work . Not sure if you carrier is doing this but worth a try.
