I have got an IP camera which, according to the manual, is supposed to have static IP address 192.168.1.110. To connect to it (and change the network settings) I configured my laptop to have static IP 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0 and connected it directly to the camera (without any routers/switches in between).
The laptop indicated that wired network was connected. But 192.168.1.110 was not pingable. So I did:
nmap -sn 192.168.1.0/24
but that came back with the laptop's IP only.
To rule out the possibility that the camera could have 192.168.1.1 as well, I changed the laptop's address to 192.168.1.2 and tried again. Same result — the laptop's IP only.
Presumably, the camera has been set up for some other private network — could be 192.168.0.0/16, 172.16.0.0/12 or whatever. Apart from questioning the vendor/supplier, is there a neat/quick way to find out which IP/network the camera has been set up for?
The vendor actually recommends to use an app called AjDevTools (for Windows) but I am not convinced to bother turning my virtual Windows on as I don't know how that app could possibly help if the above steps with
nmap did not.
