    I want to remotely view my security camera at my place of work. I have my security camera on IP address 192.168.1.106 broadcasting locally... so when I type in my 192.168.106 I can see the images. What do I need to do to view this from home? Do I change the settings in my security system and put the external IP in there and then.. type that IP into a web browser.... or do I need to port forward somehow? Thanks for any info.

    the easiest thing would be to sign up at www.logmein.com There are other similar sites, but I've only ever used logmein.
    It runs a small app on your home system that allows you to log in remotely and take control of your computer, drives, files and web browser.

    Yes. How do I port forward? Is port 80 a default port?

    port 80 is the http port. Your software should tell you the port it uses if you want to do it remotely

    login to your router and forward a high-numbered port (such as 9000 or something) to the actual port on that camera... you could then connect to: http://<your external ip>:<your high port> and be actually connecting to the camera on port 80.

    This is insecure though. I would get a vpn endpoint and do it that way instead.
