Depends on what port the IP camera is hosting its stream on.

Usually this is done with a HTTP server on port 80.

So to access it you'd have to forward some external port of your choice (8080 for instance) to port 80 on the IP Cam's IP address.

Then you can access the cam with http://externalIP:8080

Btw, for the stream itself (which is often served seperatly from the HTTP accessible streams/pages), you'll have to look in the IP cam's documents to see what port and what protocol it uses to stream the video data on.
