Hey, (im not sure this is the right section to post this) i have just set up my webcam to broadcast to my ip address through port 8080(using webcam xp), but it doesent seem to be working, i am able to broadcast to my lan address which is http://192.168.1.3:8080 but it is not being broadcasted to my ip address, do you think this could be because am behind a d-link router?
if so then is it possible to fix this? please explain simply because i am not a big computer wiz..!


Thanks.

Sounds like you need to set up port forwarding on your router.

Take a look on this website for a step-by-step guide on how to do that for your router to work with webcam xp:

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advise, although the problem still persists even after forwarding the ports.

Have any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.
