Basically I would save a copy of all the pages in my camera's control panel and upload them for you to download. Then you'd save them on your desktop and access the camera from there (instead of the camera's address).
Since the API is the same it should work if every command was sent to the correct IP address. I'm guessing the Windows utility is used to find the dynamically given IP address or an actual tool used to access your camera. If your camera isn't using a static IP you can check your router for the new local IP (if it was given one).
