Here are the steps to fix the problem.

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.

You can always use the IPs and 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.
