We have a client that has a Comcast business class modem (not in bridge mode).  It is connect to a Cisco router.  The router is connect to a Foscam and they want access to it from outside the network.  Is there any easy way to do this with this level of complexity and layers?

You need to configure the Comcast to forward your viewing port to the Cisco, and the Cisco to forward the same port to the Foscam, and make sure the Cisco's LAN IP is the default gateway for the Foscam.

You should then be able to access directly from the internet using:
http://name.domain.com:5555
where 5555 is the port you chose for the Foscam.  If using http and port 80 you don't have to add the port # to the URL, it is assumed.

RobWill has answered your question quite well. Unless they have a static IP address, in which case, I would say switch the Comcast unit to bridge mode and reconfigure the other router to reflect such.
