How Do I Do This

Specs: Windows XP
Ok heres my situation, I run a "sandwich trailer" (selling hot and cold sandwiches, etc in a parking lot in a parking garage of a business.

I have 4 CCTV cameras attached to my trailer, which I want to view remotely if i have an employee working the trailer and I am not there.

I need to access my cameras via a specific IP and port to view them remotely

So I need to have high speed internet access in the trailer.

The trailer has no physical address.

I cannot use satelite because i am on the ground floor of a parking deck (cement ceilings)

I can get on the internet using a laptop card connected to the computer.

But i have ATT&T will not allow me to buy a static public ip for these purposes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Close but yet so far

not clear if you can get on the internet from the concrete garage. If you can then all you need to know is the dynamic ip and use it.

This means you will need a pc at the snack shop and have the employee do web lookup occasionally and tell you what that ip is.

I am on comcast and have cameras at home I can view from work. I have dynamic ip. Hasn't changed yet and it has been months.

We can get on the internet via Wireless laptop card.

Comcast provides a dynamic public IP to home/residential wired users which would be fine

However since we don have a physical address we cant get comcast.

Laptop cards as far as I am aware do not provide public IP's (even though i can go to

the ip is not accessible from the outside.

(No Public IP) = no port control.

Your only option I can see is something like ClearWire wireless. This is like a cellular service. PCMCIA card plugs in your laptop.

You would have the port forward issue though. Talk to the provider and see what ports they open. Use one of them instead of the camera software defaults.
