How to set up two web cams.

I have a windows 2008 server that I would like to set up two web cams on so that I can view them from the internet.

Does anyone know how I would go about setting this up.  I still need to pick up the web cams so I am hoping that some could also suggest a good system to do what I need.

Thanks,

Gabicus

Once you pick up the webcams, you really just need a software that will run them.

I've used this one, it's ok, and does the trick: http://www.deskshare.com/wcm.aspx

I'm not aware of webcams being marked up to support servers - they are relatively cheap for the manufacturers to get that sort of certification - but if you get one which supports Vista, it should be compatible with Server 2008 because the two OS cores are virtually identical.

The lower end webcams obviously have to be attached via USB, so you'd have to remote desktop to the server to view them. It's not too difficult to get them up and running though.

tigermatt and LegendZM,

Thanks for the replies.  I ended up buying an internet Wireless Cam and it had everything I needed to connect.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I am going to spilt the points.

That definitely sounds like a better idea in the long run.
