Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 8:32 AM (in response to c_williams718)Just to be totally clear as to what I'm trying to do:
I want to view my IP camera from my iphone while on 3G. I have a linksys IP camera. Currently, I can view the camera on my iphone while I'm at home and running on my home wi-fi network. However, as soon as I switch to 3G, I'm unable to access the IP camera. What IP address do I need to enter in Safari? The IP camera's, the routers, the PC? Is there an IP address I'm totally missing? I'm new at this stuff. Thanks.Gateway PC, Windows Vista

Forgot to say. The IP camera needs a static IP. Set the IP for the port mapping destination to that of the static IP of the camera.
In IPADDRESS:PORTNUMBER, IPADDRESS is your PUBLIC IP address. I suggest using a DDNS service to keep it updated.
