I have a D-LINK DCS-1000W wireless web camera with a built in webserver. I am curious how to set it up so that I can use Java to access the webcam from the internet. My system is a home PC or 2 connected to the internet via Direcway satalite (DW6000 using DHCP) and I have my web page hosted remotely on a linux server called WebHostingBuzz.com . The camera came with activeX and Java enabled and no instructions how to set things up.

Can someone paint me a thumnail of what I need to do. Please resist tempation for sarcasm...I know I left myself wide open. ;)

I'd like to access the camera from my weather page -

For starters, here's a link to a manual for the camera.

Now... given that info, I'd suggest digging through the documentation until you find the info on the web server. From there, just create a quick snippet of java code that loads the cam's server page in either a frame or an iFrame on your weather page.

Mind you, there may be other things you need to do (port forwarding on your router, creating a DMZ, etc.), but that should get you started. Sounds like a fun project. :)

Best of luck!
