I have some camera I want to be able to get to over the web from my house. they are Foscam's.

The manual says to go to www.dyndns.com and get a free hostname, but I cannot find anywhere on their site to get a free hostname.

any thoughts on if there is a way for a free hostname or and app I can use to connect to them over the web?

I did forward the ip and port of the camera in my router.

thanks
