I have been looking at a way to broadcast my home webcam over the t'internet, ie, so I can keep an eye on puddy cat and any potentional unwanted visitors, I followed an article last night which recommended a free program called Yawcam and lo and behold managed to get a cam image which refreshes every 15secs on to the net, set up from my main PC.
All the settings ie, port forwarding etc appear fine and I can also view the webpage on my wireless lappy.
However, if I try and access it from another machine I get a message "HTTP 403 (Forbidden) You are not authorised to view this page" (Not authorised?? It's my blinking cam!! lol)
Do any of yee good folk have any ideas as to why this might be?
A 403 error is generally issued by a proxy server when it doesn't want you to view a particular website, your company IT bods have probably blocked the site that hosts your webcam.
If they're friendly types they may tell you why they've done it, if they're anything like our IT department they'll tell you why it's done, but have no way round it because our web proxy is managed by some faceless mandarin in the US
