    So here is the deal. I have read thru a bunch of forums and having trouble finding an answer. The question I have is, I have an Evo 4g laying around NOT ACTIVAVTED, how do I use the phone as a webcam on my wifi network at home and remote view it on 3g/4g on my gnex? Everything I have found allows you to use the phone as a webcam but only let's you view the cam if on the same wifi network. I need something for when I'm at work so I can log on and just check in. Also, my computer is not working correctly so hooking anything up to the PC is out of the question. Thanks for any and all responses

    If you have a static IP address at your home, then it's easy. Go into your router and create NAT for your local IP for your webCam/phone (google how to create a NAT if confused)

    If you have a dynamic IP then you need to do a few other things.
    • sign up for an account account at no-ip.com
      No-IP™ Free - Free Dynamic DNS - DDNS
    • You'll need to configure your router to connect to your webCam/phone via a port number (should find help based upon your router)
    • Bam, you'll be able to view your content from a 3G/4G device via a browser.
    Steps may be oversimplified, but that's the gist.
