Hi,

My boss has a secure camera at home, but he doesnt have static ip. so the ip changes every now and then.  Is there a way to fix this other than getting a static ip?  thanks

Most residential Internet providers will not give out static IPs but I would call them first. If  you have no luck with that you can try a service like logmein or gotomypc.

My boss does not like logmein.   He does not need to log into his pc at home, he just want to view the camera from the browser..thx

Have your ip emailed to you daily so if it changes, you will know -

OK, a bit buggy. The latest one here works a treat though -

Must have dotnet2 or above installed.
