Title: Accessing Webcam from External Network
Post by: rndinokc on June 25, 2011, 03:56:04 pm
I have just installed a Panasonic webcam on my LMCE system and all is well.  My question is: can I access my webcam via the internet using a standard web browser.  I have a static IP address on my linksys router to which my core is attached.  Therefore the core is just another device on the router, IP address 192.168.1.106.  I installed the camera on the internal network at 192.168.80.253 and it works great.  How do I get to the camera via the internet ie to the linksys router to the core then to the cam?  Any help would be appreciated. 
Thanks,
Randy

Forward the ip + port in your router.
Look for NAT

Another option would be to utilize the weborbiter to see the pics.

Thanks for the suggestions.  The webcam has an option to watch 16 cams at once and my relatives who will be watching the house only have PC's.  Thought if I could just give them the link they could handle that.  I personally use the weborbiter on my ipad.  Thanks Bongowongo, i need to forward port 80 to 192.168.1.106 (Core) then how do I forward again to the webcam at 192.168.80.253?  help me I'm stupid.
