CGI: Common Gateway Interface

Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a standard method used to generate dynamic content on web pages. CGI provides an interface between the web server and programs that generate the web content. These programs are known as CGI scripts or simply CGIs. The CGI commands listed in the following allow you to directly communicate with your INSTAR IP camera through your web browser. Simply add your camera's IP address to the command submit it through your browser's address field. Like the camera's own web user interface, they can also be used embedded in HTML pages.
