Linux OS to Windows Vista software interface


I was wondering if you guys have a software interface that will interface my DVR to my PC via Ethernet? My Current PC's OS is Vista and my DVR is Linux OS. Please help.

[ The DVR was purchased from Dino Direct, and the manufacturer of the DVR is Monita CCTV in China. ]

When you mean interface what do you mean exactly? Share files? control? access recorded media or remote desktop?

RE:Linux to Windows interface

What I would like to do is run or operate the DVR from my PC using the Ethernet connection, LAN, on my PC. This would include recording, playback, and setting options in the DVR's software. I can already play back files or recordings created on the DVR using a variety of viewers. Better?

well the DVR might be linux based, but the question is, does it have any interfaces open via the ethernet (web, telnet, ssh, most likely web based), i would look up it's IP address and try and browse to it with a web browser

more than likely however it probably does not would be my guess and the ethernet is for accessing videos shared on a pc to watch on your tv.
