Hi, I downloaded and installed the webcam monitor on my PC. I am trying to set the software up so I can monitor my office from home. It works fine locally. I have set up the software to start the video streaming using my ISDN connection. I have viewed the preview and it seems to work fine.
How do I view the live stream from my home Pc. I have tried using my IP address: from Internet explorer with no results

Where am I going wrong?

We noticed that you are referring to the URL reported by WebCam Monitor as
In Tools >> Options >> Remote Monitoring >> Streaming, when you specify 0 as the port number (default) then WebCam Monitor should automatically select a non-zero port number for you.

When you start live streaming, WebCam Monitor reports a URL in the log to which you must connect using either Internet Explorer or Windows Media Player. You can also click Start, click Run, specify the reported URL and click OK.

If WebCam Monitor is actually reporting 0 as the port number then on the Tools menu, click Options. Click the Remote Monitoring tab and then click the Configure button under Streaming. Specify the port number and click OK. Try connected to the reported URL now.
