Check if the ip address reported as "Public IP:" in the settings under "Settigns -> Edit settings... -> Connection" is the same address as the one used as public/external/WAN address in your router.

1) If they are the same everything is good and it should be possible for you to get Yawcam up and running.
2) If they differ something/someone is making life hard on you and you might not be able to use Yawcam's built-in webserver.

In the first case, check that you have forwarded the ports from your router to your "Yawcam computer" correctly. If this doesn't help, try to change the port number. Try a port number different than the 8XXX series.

Use the function "Help -> Am I online?" to check if other people can see you over the Internet.

Also read the router configuration guide:

In the second case, check how your Internet Service Provider is connecting you to the Internet. Is it via a transparent proxy? That means trouble...
