    I have a Panasonic BLC1A camera that I am trying to set up.
    Router is a Amped R20000G. Laptop is Win XP Pro latest update.

    I think there are several ways to do this but am not sure what exactly
    to do. I am trying to follow the setup software provided but keep
    failing.
    The install software and docs are not easily understood by me.

    Method 1 uses uPnP. I have to enable uPnP in my router and use a web
    server provided by Panasonic (if it still exists) to provide a fixed IP
    address so I can access the cam from anywhere.
    But I understand that using uPnP is dangerous as a back door. Is that
    true or is it a matter of setting something up properly? How do I do
    that?

    Method 2 (not sure if I understand this) is to somehow use a fixed IP
    address (how do I get this) and then allow the router to pass
    communications through the router to the fixed IP address. How do I do
    that? I only know of the local IP address based on 192.168.3.253.

    Any help or terminology to study please.
