Thanks for your response.
The webcam image is seen through my web-browser,
so I guess the protocol is http .

My internet connection and web server has internal address 192.168.2.2 .
I'm running shorewall as firewall on this server.
I have IP_FORWARDING=On in shorewall.conf .

I'm not sure what line to add to "rules",
or what address I would give from outside my system
to access the webcam.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
