  1. these things can be a real pain. Lets find ip adresses first. There are 2 addresses to be concerned with -- your external public ip (which is what the outside world uses to see you and ALL devices inside your house) And the internal ip of the machine which the server software is on. External-- go to whatismyip.com Internal-- open up a command line window (start-cmd) type ipconfig /all at the dos prompt -- the address that starts with 192.168 (not the default gateway) is your "broadcom" address. Now what has to be done is what you have stated--- tell your router that any external inbound traffic on port 86 gets routed to 192.168.x.x:86 whatever the ipconfig said above. If your local connection sees the camera when you type in on the server machine or the local ip address on another machine on the network, you are most likely opertaional regardless of what broadcom says, assuming your router has all outbound traffic unblocked. Now here is where I think your problem is.... You cant use an internal machine to check an external connection, and I find broadcom test is unreliable for the external connection. let me know if you make any progress.......
