Location of Default Directories.

C:\programdata\Axis Communications\AXIS Camera Station

Most modern Anti-virus programs now come with active network packet monitoring that scan each packet that passes through the network adapter, in addition to this most also come with a web monitoring tool that scans web traffic (HTTP/HTTPS) for any threats. With some Anti-Virus programs this may cause issues with network communication between AXIS Camera Station and AXIS devices and may result in video/audio latency, a loss of recordings, intermittent loss of camera connection, dropped frames or connection problems between client and server.
Our recommendation is to white list (allow) HTTP traffic so that it will not be scanned by either network monitoring or web monitoring tools.
For configuration of your Anti-Virus program please contact your Anti-Virus vendor for technical documentation and or support
