    Most of these type of programs must be set up on the machine with the camera, and then have permission to display at another machine. All of the controls are on the machine with the camera.

    Is this what you want to do?

    I am wondering the same thing.
    I have a laptop at home that has a webcam on it and I was wanting to set it up to watch my dog. We think he actually stays in his unlocked crate all day. I was wanting to be able to view the webcam so I could check in on him. Is there software that can easily help with this?
    I know there is for a MAC at http://www.bensoftware.com/. Though I have never used it as I don't have a MAC but heard it was easy to use.

    Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    Thanks,
    Senna
