I just set two of these up the other day at my house. What brand is yours?
You have two options:
- Provided you have a static IP, or one that changes infrequently enough that you can manually keep up with the changes, you will need to set up your router to port-forward whatever port to the camera's IP address. Note that this will only work if you also make sure your router gives your camera the same IP address at all times. Do not let it use DHCP for that. Assign a rule on your router for the camera.
- Set up iCam and iCam server. This only works for mobile devices I believe, but it doesn't require any port-forwarding...you just set up a username and password, and it just knows how to find your camera. Somewhat like Slingbox did.
