I have:
WHS
WRT610N (w/ firmware 2.00.00 B05) Linksys router.
WVC54GCA Linksys Wireless G network camera.

I can get either remote access for WHS to work OR get remote viewing of the camera to work (using TZO, port forwarding port 1024,iirc 80 is blocked). Can't seem to get both to exist at the same time.

It looks like WHS can configure itself and work. When I try to add port forwarding for the camera, it seems WHS still grabs it and forwards to itself.

This is my first stab at real networking stuff,so I'm sure there's more info needed. Just not sure what to add...

Anyone know about how to do this? Also, I think the followup question I will have is how to add a second camera (same model).

Many thanks!

There are a few things that I can think of to fix this.
Problem: two devices that are (or act as) webservers, both use port 80.
Solution 1: if your router supports port-redirection (e.g. redirecting incoming port 8080 to internal port 80), do that for the webcam.
Solution 2: manually configure port-forwarding to your WHS, and do not forward port 80 to it - it's not really needed, as the WHS main page is actually an SSL (https, port 443) site. All that hitting http:\\<servername> does is redirect to https:\\<servername>
You'd just need to remember that you'll need to need to go to https:\\<servername>, as the built-in redirect won't be there - you forwarded 80 to the webcam.

Well, don't know what happened differently from the last dozen times I tried, but it seems to work now. Very confused but happy???
