We have a webcam that needs to be viewable by the entire college. I was told an hour ago that it requires activex on any client system used to view the pictures. They would like the site to be usable tomorrow. We are talking about 1000+ systems that would need manual installs by someone with administrator rights not to mention my security concerns about having activex running on all these internet clients.
While my manager is telling them we will gladly buy a camera that doesn't require activex if we can, I would like to know if there is some way to use a normal web server to "buffer the image" so normal web clients can view it without activex. The other complication is this camera requires a user name and password. We would prefer that anyone who wanted to could view the image without a login.
As a network security person my knowledge about web servers is minimal so if there is some other answer out there I'm glad to listen.
