WATCHOUT versions for different WATCHPAX and WATCHMAX media servers

Table showing supported WATCHOUT versions for Dataton media servers

When using a Dataton server it is important to ensure that you are running a supported version of WATCHOUT for your specific server.

If you install an unsupported version of WATCHOUT on your server this will impact performance and have consequences. Settings for some things, such as setting a fixed IP number will not work, and you will get a warning saying that you are trying to use an unauthorized command. Other settings, such as capture and audio settings, will not be saved in the registry and will be erased between reboots. Any WATCHPAX unique features, including video hardware acceleration, will not work properly.

How do I know if my server is running an unsupported version?

When running an unsupported version of WATCHOUT, your server will not show its inherent serial number at start up (when the WATCHOUT splash screen appears) – simply put, it will no longer identify itself as a Dataton server.

To resolve this, check the table above and install a supported version of WATCHOUT.
