    Access webcam over the internet

    Hello,

    This is for my home. I have a local webcam that I want to access it over the internet. I have a static IP from SBC (my internet service).

    I connected the internet line directly to my router/modem/switch (all in one), my computer (192.168.1.100) to a port on the router/modem/switch, and my webcam (192.168.1.101) to another port on the router/modem/switch. I am able to access and view my webcam locally (http://192.168.1.101) from my home pc.

    Now I want my friends to access and view my webcam over the internet. How do I configure it so I can access the webcam from http://<static_ip_assigned_by_SBC>?

    I would imagine if you can set your camera to listen on a particular port you could set up your router to do port forwarding.

    for example if the camera is available on port 456 the internal address would be http://192.168.1.101:456

    Then externally it would be http://your_ext_IP:456

    Never done it for a camera but it works for webmin on my home linux box.
