I want to view my office from my house by using V.CAM USB Digital Video Camera. I want to dial through telephone line from my house computer to my  office computer without using internet.

From my survey at the market, I found that all of the video conferencing cameras are only supported by internet connection.

1.which type of software you suggest to support the system, Please name it?

2. Do i need extra hardware to support the system. Please name it?

"internet connection" is the same as setting up a dialin server on the machine with the camera via TCP/IP so that is not a problem.

Use any camera, then install a remote access server (think it is called "Dial up server" in windows98), and you are all set. Then just dial up from a computer using the same method as when connecting to an ISP.


Note that the dialup server is not shipped with the "original" version of Win95.

You shouldnt have to do anythign else, whatever software the cam has should suffice. As in, however you should connect over the internet, do the same here (but you will probably have to use IP number instead of FQDN to connect)

1. Install a modem on the Office pc
2. Install a dial up server on the office PC (inlcuded in WIn92OSR2 and Win98)
3. Dial to the office PC from home using the remote access service. (or dial up networking as it is also known)

4. Done, you now have a TCP/IP connection and can use the camera.

There are no more steps, after this connection use whatever software the camera is shipped with. Connecting this way (dialup TCP/IP) is the _same_ as over the internet. (But in smaller scale of cource)
