Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) Server Survey
November 1st, 2018

Report Description
This report is a comprehensive report involving all RTSP servers we know of visible on the internet. Our crawlers, as part of their ongoing search for new web sites on the web, also make note of links of the form "rtsp://somehost". These links are then visited monthly to determine, if possible, the server type that usually accompanies a banner generated by the remote server.

Basic Response Statistics
When connecting to an RTSP server, a number of different responses are possible. The remote server may not be up and running or completely refusing connections, it may not respond back with a status message, nor will it always provide a banner that identifies the type of software running.
