Check the HTML source on your stream page. If it looks like this:
- Code: Select all
<APPLET CODE=YawApplet.class WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240">
<param name="Host" value="192.168.1.105">
<param name="Port" value="8021">
where host has an ip-address on the format 192.168.x.x something is wrong.
Then you have to select "Advanced" and typ in your public address in "Force public ip".

Well, It has to do with the applet. The Http doesn't use one
Seriously, The applet need to know where it can fetch the image data. The url and port number is passed to the applet via the html file.
Yawcam writes this to the html file, but don't know what the computer's public address is, so it guesses on the ip-address of the network card. This will be a wrong guess if you are sitting behind a router.
But you can tell yawcam the right public address. This is done bye selecting advanced and force yawcam to write the public address in the html file.
I hope this not so good explanation was understandable
