    My dad's restaurant is in need of a camera setup so it can be viewed from home. Both computers (home and work) are macs.

    So, two questions:

    1) Is there software that will connect the two macbook laptops from home and work to allow viewing from home?
    2) What type of camera would I need?
    3) Is there an all-in-one solution that will allow me to connect to an existing router (WRT54G)?
    4) Any chance of a wireless camera? The router at the restaurant is on one end where as we need the camera to be at the other end.

    Thanks!

    Take a look at the wifi IP cameras here

    they have one with night vision and one without.

    Works with Evocam and Vitamin D on the Mac....can also view it from your iPhone.

    ive tried setting it up so that the camera's video feed is sent to the internet, but i cant access it. i have no clue on how to get it to show up in a web browser over the net (i got it to work via LAN).

    its *really* confusing.

    Not simple to describe in a single post....look up "video cam port forwarding" in Google....that should get you started.
