Web Site with Webcam viewing capabalities

by yasen2 / May 24, 2006 1:09 AM PDT

I would like to view my webcam located at home, remotely from work. HOWEVER, it is impossible to tap into it through any messenger program such as Yahoo or MSN because of the firewall and privacy issues within our network.
It seems like creating a web site would be the only way I could do it.
(Unless there?s a way around the firewall?)???

Anyway, I guess my question is? How do I create a website to view my webcam?

There is some free software that I used a while back, but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it, I will keep looking.
