    I bought some internet camera's years ago to watch my printers from home. I was unsuccessful trying to set them up until now.

    at one point i had my cnc router hooked up in my warehouse and could watch it via remote camera from my laptop and i would have someone load a new sheet on the table and i could send whatever job i needed to the table in a period where i didn't have anyone trained to run the machine. it was a very archaic setup compared to today's technology.

    i've got one client running a router with a self loader remotely and countless clients running printers from their phones..it can be a great tool to increase productivity and quality of life not having to watch a printer run.

    Cool. You'll have to hire a hot chick to handle your printing if you want me to return to your site, however.

    the manual to set it up was a joke, every time i searced the internet all i found was people asking the same question i was. finally someone came back to a forum and posted what they had done to solve the problem. it's great when someone takes the time to go back and let everyone know what worked for them.

    all i had to do was set the gateway on my camera to the same as the router's IP address for anyone else who may be having problems...

    now i can spend more time at home with my kids!

    You need to load the next job, it's sitting still. Time is money, chop chop, get a move on, hurry up every chance you get, what are you waiting for, and all those other wonderful motivations sayings we all love to hear :)

    I will give you my web cam address so you can watch me write your check. Then watch me cash it and keep the cash too.
