I can view my cameras thru internet on my home pc on the same router but I can't remote view cameras over internet at the office.
Is my company's firewall blocking? I've allow exceptions for the camera's software on my office's pc and add in port 80 and 2000 for firewall settings.
I'm using linksys router modem and the ip for the camera is 192.168.0.10 port 2000 onwards.

The IP address for your camera 192.168.x.x is a private IP address, this is only known by your Linksys at home. When your Linksys connects to your ISP it will get its own IP address assigned, depending on your ISP you might have a static address (same one each time) or a dynamic address (can change). Ideally you want to get a static address from your ISP and configure your Linksys router to Port Forward requests to your camera. You would then use the IP address your Linksys gets from the ISP at your work, tagged with a port number. Quite complicated and I've probably confused you loads more now.. But look at 192.168.x.x private ip addresses as internal phone numbers at your work, if you want to call your accounts you would dial x3345 and you would get through, go to another building and try to dial and you obviously wont get them, you would need to dial a longer different public number, this is the same as IP addresses, you need to find the public IP of your Linksys to contact it, once you've got this you then need to tell the Lynksys where to route your request (Port Forwarding - send request to camera). If you log onto your Lynksys it will advise in there somewhere the public IP address it currently has.

Tks, I'm able to remote view with other remote pc so now I'm sure it's my company blocking. So what are the alternatives for me to view my home camera? Any software/hardware?
I desperately need to monitor my babysitter at home.

Can someone help me on how to set up so I can view it remotely (work, hotspots,..)?

I have AT&T wireless DSL and a IP internet camera. I can view it wirelessly with my laptop at home, but need to view eslewhere where there's an internet connection.
