- P2P configuration doesn’t provide a static URL to your NCR’s potentially-changing public IP address
- P2P provides a video stream tied a user account not IP Address
- It is more of a simplistic viewing platform as opposed to a DDNS service
- Not Recommended for larger enterprise or corporate networks
- There are some security risks – ask your IT manager
- Video Images are not consistent like DDNS or Static URL configurations
- You may see some but not all video streams and there is a connection timeout, bandwidth and quality limitations while using P2P.
