How to Set Up Remote Access for a Webcam

An IP webcam connects directly to your network through either a wired Ethernet or wireless connection. Just like any other network device, the webcam obtains an IP address from the network's router. To remotely view the video from an IP webcam, you must set a static IP address for the webcam and forward a port in the firewall on your router to port 80 on the camera's IP address.
