I have an old iMac with external iSight suction cupped to it.

I want to keep an eye on my dog while out or at work.

I would like to access the isight using my iPhone.

Can anyone make some suggestions?

thanks for the link, but

"If you want to access your computer from outside of your local network, you may need to configure your router or firewall to support it."

Do you know where I can find direction for configuring my Airport Extreme base station?

just use a website to check your computers IP then set up port forwarding on your router

I am a very disappointed with the service and support of the iPhone. I have owned the iPhone for 20 days and was really hoping to make it work. Between the excessive number of dropped calls and poor phone functionality, I am fed up. I went to the Apple store, ATT store and called Apple Tech Support. Apple would blame ATT and ATT did the same. I am surprised that two large organizations do not understand or care about taking responsibility.

I spent several hours getting nowhere with Apple support staff (Leah #40169 - Manager, Mike- Product Support, Paul- Product Support, and Julia- Customer Relations). At this point, I have wasted over $900 (phone, peripherals and service) with two companies that I will never do business with again. I have since switched my service to a provider with less dropped calls and would not recommend an iPhone to my worst enemy.

I hope no one else experiences the pain of being an Apple or ATT customer.

Sincerely,

the good link is down.

i don't see any information showing what to set up on the airport extreme.

anyone step my step instructions to set up my imac remotely from iphone outside the local network?
You want to access your iSight camera using your iPhone from outside your home (presumably)? If you read the thread I posted earlier, you will find the instructions you need to set up your Airport Extreme and your iMac firewall settings.

Ok open your router settings and go to port forwarding and put in the IP of the computer your trying to connect to, you can get your IP from alot of websites just google it, then it will ask for port numbers I think the defult port for telekenisis is 5010 and 5012 or something so in your router set it to cover from 5008 to 5014 as long as one number is lower and one number is higher.

im sorry but I dont have a airport and I have no idea where you will find these, just look for something that says port forwarding I guess, thats what it is on most routers


Also what if you see your dog chewing something up? How will you stop it? You'll be stuck there watching your dog chew up all your stuff.
