I'm hoping the Linux community can help me out here. I have a mini-dome IP camera which is running off a TI DaVinci DM 355 board (ARM) and is running MVL Pro Ed. 4.0.1. I need to do 2 things: 1) change the IP address and 2) enable PoE.
First, I am able to access the device via telnet using Putty. I need to change the IP (from the default), but when I type su at the shell I get "su: This applet requires root priviledges!" (What's with the typo anyway?)
Second, the camera is suppose to support Power over Ethernet (PoE), but when I plug it into the Cisco Catalyst inline switch, I do NOT get a link light. The switch has a default config (nothing fancy); inline power is enabled by default. However, if I use the power adapter which came w/ the camera, then I get power & link. But again, the unit is suppose to have PoE. I'm thinking this feature may be disabled in s/w.
I need assistance in getting root access. Any assistance the community can provide would be much appreciated.
