Motion - Config Option Control Port

control_port

  • Type: Integer
  • Range / Valid values: 0 - 65535
  • Default: 0 (disabled)
  • Group: Obsolete

Sets the port number for the http (html using browser) based remote control. This option must be placed in motion.conf and not in a thread config file.

This option has been replaced by webcontrol_port

This sets the TCP/IP port number to be used for control of motion using http (browser). Port numbers below 1024 normally requires that you have root privileges. Port 8080 is a fine choice of port to use for the purpose.
