    I have a player with a camera attached to it as a child. When I start the server, the player spawns and it works perfectly. Then when a client joins the server it spawns another player, however both the host and the client can only see out of the client's camera. I am wondering what a good fix for this might be.

    I know that two players spawn, both the host and the client can only control their player. The controls and movement are working.

    camera.enabled = false;

    Thanks for your help, but `isLocalPlayer` always returns true.

    If you're asking on the local player, then it should.

    On the remote clients it should return false? meaning it will be disabled for them

    I believe at this point the previous solution has been depreciated. My editor is telling me I need to use GetComponent<camera>().

    "camera" in TwoTen's solution is a reference to the camera component, which you'd probably want to name something else anyways. You get a reference to it the same as getting a reference to anything (via inspector, GetComponent, etc).
