Sorry, I'm a little computer illiterate. I need my IP address for remote access to a surveillance system.

From Google Search......."my IP address"

What Is My IP Address? Lookup IP, Hide IP, Change IP, Trace IP and ... (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=my%20ip%20address&source=web&cd=3&sqi=2&ved=0CEQQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwhatismyipaddress.com%2F&ei=VeZ1T8fRIrTs2AWohNCuDQ&usg=AFQjCNFUv4nQDguW0ipbBvIKcS5vT9xH_w&cad=rja)

Start > Run > type "cmd" then press OK.

In th window that opens type "ipconfig" then press enter.

This will display all your IP info.

That will display his local IP address, if he's using a router. I believe he needs his outside IP address.

Got the IP part figured out. Now how do you monitor a Mace surveillance system from a home computer or smart phone? The instructions are written by the Chinese and SUCK!!

I'm not familiar with the Mace brand of equipment. Typically, modern surveillance equipment has a built in web interface on port 80. If that's the case, when you are on the same local network you can simply open that web page at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx or https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx depending if it’s a secure web page.
Accessing it from the outside can be a bit more difficult and often requires a professional [like me] to get it working smoothly.
You need to set a static address on the surveillance equipment, possibly change the port if there are other web enabled devices on the local net, enable port forwarding on the router and forward the proper port[s] to the surveillance device, etc.
If you needed help with finding your own IP address, I'd recommend seeking professional advice.

LOL... well will you come up here for a week and get it going!! In exchange I will come down and wash and keep an eye on your boat.:thumbsup: I figured it was going to be complicated. So far the system works great but it would be REALLY nice to watch it from home.
