Default Raymarine E7D IP Camera

Hey, I'm trying to setup an IP camera on my Raymarine E7D and I am have zero luck. I have a Dahua 1.3 Megapixel 720P ONVIF 3.6mm 1/3" Aptina CMOS IR Bullet IP Camera. I have done all the things Raymarine tells you to do like turning off ONVIF, DHCP on, setting RTSP on port 554 =, ect and I still can't see it.
I even set IP add to static and assigned IP address of as they to to try and still no luck.
If anyone has had any luck in setting up anything other than the Raymarine cam200IP or the Axis brand please let me know.
Thanks in advanced for any help you might shed on this issue.

Finally got the camera to work, just have to connect to the MFD via laptop and assign IP address within range of the MFD. Works great and at 1/5 the cost of the raymarine IP camera.

I never got my Axis cameras to work with my c97.... I gave up.

I don't know if they have updated the ONVIF support - but one of the reasons for it not working when I was trying was because Raymarine only supported an long outdated version of ONVIF. So to get it to work right I would have had to downgrade the camera firmware to about 2 year old firmware.

But there are a couple of freeware ONVIF test programs - so first try from a PC if you can get it to work with the ONVIF test software. If it works there complain loudly to Raymarine. I tried but was told I should just downgrade my camera firmware......

Third party IP camera

NOTE: IP cameras must be able to assign IP address via DHCP and allow unauthenticated, anonymous ONVIF access.

Hi ReelDivers,

I read your post re success at getting a third party IP cam to work with Raymarine MFDs with great interest! Several of us have posted questions on the Raymarine Tech Forum requesting Raymarine to update their ONVIF support - especially since many cameras supporting ONVIF don't support the anonymous authentication profile (or make it rather obscure to set - from reading the ONVIF standard a camera that doesn't have any viewer/operator/admin user profile setup should default to anonymous). Presumably the Dahua camera you have does allow you to turn ONVIF authentication off / create an anonymous profile / remove all user and admin profiles leaving anonymous login as ON per the ONVIF standard?

So far our efforts to get some proper information from Raymarine seem unsuccessful!

Could you detail connecting to the MFD via a laptop to assign an IP within range of the MFD?

I presume you have the camera connected either directly to the MFD or via a network switch (Raymarine branded or other). Do you then connect your laptop to the MFD Wifi Hotspot and access the camera's configuration page / use config software to update the camera's IP address to be in the same range as the MFD?

Do you have to go through this process every time you power up your system?

Do you know which version of Lighthouse (II) you are you running on your MFD?

Do you have the model number for the Dahua camera you're using? It it IPC-HFW2100?

Look forward to your response.

Kind Regards,

Good luck getting any cameras to work today. I am in the security business and have tried many different manufactures cameras. I even ordered the new AXIS cameras model M3004 and the AXIS M3024 but they no longer support unauthorized ONVIF logon.

Unless Raymarine updates there software to allow for a ONVIF user name and password most modern cameras will not work anymore. A lot of cameras have been hacked on the internet with the default passwords. Modern IP cameras will now force that the default password be changed when you first connect to the web interface. They also no longer allow unauthorized ONVIF access.

I did make one old camera work in my lab. It was an old Bosch camera. Model number Dinion NBN-921-P. Firmware 15500552.

I have been asking Raymarine to fix this on the technical support site for some time but I am guessing they don't want customers using any cameras that are not Raymarine which is a same.

I can may make an emulator that will allow connection of third party camera on the raymarine network if I have to. If anyone is interested in this idea let me know and I will see what my developers can come up with?

Ok, I figured it out. If you want to be able to use virtually any ip camera with your Raynarine multifunction display you can email me at and reference this post
