I have several PoE IP cameras in and around my house. I use the SW from the manufacturer of my NVR. (I just looked and it does not support 3rd party IP cams)
Was recently looking really hard at Blue Iris software but unfortunately it doesn't run on mac and I am not putting parallels and windows on my MacBook pro to simply run a single piece of SW.
You can try this but I can't vouch for it as I have no experience with it. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
And yes, in the computer world 2008 is ancient.
edit: any other ip cam SW I have come across requires minimum osx 10.10
