I am not sure if any of you guys can help me here but lets give it a go. I have been asked to setup a system whereby you can view video cameras setup in a shop environment and view them from home. The system in the shop works Ok, I have contacted the ISP and they have given us a fixed IP address. The operating system on all pc's is Windows XP, the camera software and remote viewing software are by Geovision. I have setup the camera software at the shop to act as a TCP/IP server and have tried setting up the remote viewing software to conect to the fixed ip address but without success. I have tried pinging the address but no reply. My thoughts at the moment make me wonder if its the firewal on the broadband router. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
