A little more detail is needed.

Is this camera going to be inside the LAN and accessed (viewed) from inside the LAN?

Or, do you want to access the camera from an external location?

Thanks for your reply. The IP camera is connected to my router and thats Aztech DSL605EW. It can be viewed from all computer connected to my homenetwork (same LAN from same router), but I need the camera to be accessed online thru my domain.

Ok, now I understand what you want.

In order to access the camera from a remote location you will first have to setup remote access to the computer the camera connects to. You will need to know that computer's LAN IP address. Also, you will want to enable Remote Desktop (Control Panel >> System Properties >> Remote tab) on the "target" computer.

Once you've got the target computer's IP and enabled remote desktop on it you will want to create a port forward in your router. Remote Desktop uses port 3389 by default so that's the port you will forward.

I'm not familiar with your make/model of router so read it's manual or look through the management interface for the "port forward" section and create the forward there. It should look as follows:

forward port 3389 to IP of target PC

Once you've got it done correctly, you can then use RDC (Start >> Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Remote Desktop Connection) to connect to your computer. You will need to know the external IP address of your network. You can get that from any client PC on your LAN by going to the "What's my IP" website (google that).

Now, to connect from the remote computer:

- Run RDC
- Enter external IP of your network

If your port forward is properly setup and RD is enabled on the target PC, you will be given the login for that computer. Enter the proper username/password for that computer. Once connected, fire up the web browser on that PC and go view your web cam.

Thank you for the info. When you say "target" did you mean any other computer from any other location, aside from the one I am using to configure the camera from my network? If the IP cam have static IP and is a standalone device, w/c IP add do I need to forward in my router? is that the IP add of my target pc? I know Im missing something kindly explain more. Also I need procedure about the " fire up the web browser on that PC and go view your web cam". Please bear with me for I am dumb and cannot follow your instructions correctly.

First off, you're not "dumb"

I think English isn't your first language and that can make communication between us hard so let's go slowly.

First the camera. There has to be a way to connect to it and view what the camera is seeing. Most camera's I've worked with have one of two ways to connect to them.
1) through a web browser
or
2) software made by the camera manufacturer for this specific purpose.

In either case, you need to connect from a computer. That's the computer I'm calling the "target" computer.

I'm going to setup and example for you in hopes of having this all make sense to you. The following is an example only.

Let's say you're using the following IP subnet on your LAN
192.168.0.0/24

Your router's LAN IP address is: 192.168.0.1

Now, let's say you have a computer in the network who's IP address is: 192.168.0.100

Now, let's say the camera has the following IP address: 192.168.0.50

When you're sitting at the desk with computer 192.168.0.100 you can connect to the camera and view what it sees either through your web browser or software that came with the camera you then installed on that computer (192.168.0.100).

Now you want to connect to the camera from (for example) your computer at home.

As per my instructions in the previous post you would:
1) enable RD on 192.168.0.100
2) create a port forward on the router as follows:
forward port 3389 to 192.168.0.100 (192.168.0.100 being the "target")
3) while on computer 192.168.0.100 connect to the "what's my IP" website to find out what your external (internet) IP address is. Make note of this address and take it with you when you go home.

From your home computer start up RDC (Start >> Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Remote Desktop Connection) and enter that external IP and click on the "Connect" button.

If you created the port forward correctly on your router, and enabled RD on the "target" computer (192.168.0.100) then you will connect to that computer and be givin a logon screen requiring you to enter a username and password. Once you do that, you will be connected to the "target" computer and can then connect to the camera either via the web browser on it or through the software that came with the camera.

It matters not how straight the gate,

I am the captain of my soul.
