How to fix the (Xe0000105) error
Here are the steps to fix the problem.
Make sure the device IP configuration is correct
Login to the device and open the Network menu.
Check the configuration to ensure the IP is correct. Also check the primary and secondary DNS, and the Gateway used to connect to the Internet (local router).

Check the DNS configuration
Make sure the DNS configuration is correct because this is very important to allow the device to reach the Hik-connect server on the Internet.
The picture below shows an example of the DNS configuration.
You can always use the IPs 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 for the DNS servers.
Make sure the Hik-connect service is enabled
Go to "Configuration >> Network >> Advanced Settings >> Plataform access".
As you can see in the picture the Hik-connect is enabled.
Check the router firewall
Your firewall can prevent the device to reach the Internet and the Hik-connect server which can cause the (Xe0000105) error.
Make sure there's no rule on the local router that is blocking the traffic.
Talk to the vendor
If you have a Hikvision OEM product, chances are the Hik-connect will not work.
Talk to the vendor to ask if the OEM device you have can use such a service.
You can usually solve this problem by fixing the Hik-connect connection.
