I set up a LAN at home with a security camera and a security system including automatic lighting.  Within the LAN, I can access all of the ports.  The security system has a secure port forwarded as do the camera and the linksys router.  When I am away from home, I can access the camera, the lighting controller and the linksys setup page.  I use to provide a dynamic IP for my LAN and I address all these ports through it.  The security system is supposed to be accessible so that I can turn it on and off.  When I emailed support with the problem, and finally gave him the security codes and passwords, he was able to immediately access the port, enter and active the security functions.  I get an error message saying that the site is taking too long to load.  I deleted and reactivated the certificate without effect.  I use the latest version of Firefox and also tried Internet Explorer 6 and Google Chrome, the latter without importing any settings.  All give me the same message.  Strangely, while I can easily access the security camera, I have given the IP and passwords for the camera to two of my sons and they cannot access the camera.  Any thoughts??
