"Remote" Access to GoPro Media

My GoPro Hero 7 Black is mounted over a pool table for overhead video. The mounting location is not easily accessible. I'd like to be able to directly retrieve the media from the camera, mostly video files, directly to a laptop (yes, I know I can retrieve them with an iPad or Android tablet; that creates a two-hop transfer that I'd like to avoid if possible). I've read articles that indicate the GoPro itself has a simple embedded web server, and when connected directly to the GoPro's local WiFi network, I can see that a network is present with a default gateway of That address corresponds to what I've read is the default address of the GoPro's web server. The articles further say that the web server is present on port 8080 -- but I cannot get a response from that port when I try to connect to it with a browser. Does the GP Hero 7 not present a web server? --or does it use a different port?
