|"an IP was supplied so I can watch it on a pc"|
akrubas this should be as simple as a doing a port forward to that ip address in your router unless your CCTV system does not support ports and is local access only. If local than gaining access to a pc is the only way you can view
If using ports than no need for remote pc logon/ no RDP or any of that. I look at my home security cameras from my work laptop.
But my system is DVR based and has software [CMS lite] that I load on my laptop which asks for ip address and port number and password.
We don't know how you are connecting beyond a local ip address.
Here's what we would need to know from you
1. make and model of router you have
2. CCTV does it have software or a web interface and does it list a port to use
Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
