Their first post said it was a D-Link 950G internet camera. Those things work as their own webserver, and you view them in your webbrowser. Unfortunately, it's typical for some of these things to only work in MSIE, because they serve pages that use goofy scripting or goofy Java, when they could have done their trick in a far more compatible manner. The specs say it requires ActiveX (see below page address), though it might be possible to directly ask for a JPEG instead of browsing a page from the camera. I saw less than stellar reviews of it in an Amazon page. Specs: <http://www.dlink.com/products/resource.asp?pid=365&rid=1340&sec=0> I've a client who wants to do something similar, put cameras around his place, and have me keep an eye on things (amongst others). But I'm damned if I'm going to dirty my PC with Windows just to check on them. I hadn't come across one that he could afford that didn't require Windows, or an awful lot of tomfoolery to pretend that you're using MSIE on it. He wanted something that could be wired directly to a modem, and not need a computer running locally. -- (This box runs FC6, my others run FC4 & FC5, in case that's important to the thread.)
