Port Forwarding with Vista (ultimate) ICS

I have an interesting scenario.

Laptop with Vista Ultimate SP2. It has a AT&T 3G data device that is an USB interface. Looks like a thumbdrive. i am stuck with this for my only internet access for this laptop. I get a nice public IP from AT&T when connected; internet access is fine.

I have an IP based camera (192.168.0.30) plugged in via a cross over ethernet cable to the laptops NIC (192.168.0.1)

I have enabled ICS in hopes that i can do some kind of port forwarding like every other cheap router out there can do. I can browse to the camera's web page on the laptop via http://192.168.0.30. i would like to remotely from the internet browse to the ip address provided by AT&T 3G Cell Data network via HTTP and have it display the camera's web interface. if this was a normal router; it would be easy as port forwarding is very easy. I even went into the ICS settings button and enabled the "Web Services (HTTP" thinking this was port forwarding. It does appear so looking at netstat output.

I can not seem to find a way to accomplish this with windows. I have done extensive searching on windows vista, ICS, & port forwarding.

any know of any way to do this with windows vista? Maybe some sort of NetSh command? or edge transversal for inbound rules that is in the advanced firewall windows on vista?

maybe if you bridge the the nic and at&t interface's in "Network Connections"? that would atleast setup routing between the two interfaces....

Something else. This is now only remotely accessible. I am using live mesh for remote control. Do u think the bridging could kill off the at&t connection?
