    Might you look into IP cams or network cams,
    They are stand alone little dedicated webserver/camera's . Available with
    and without sound and even two way sound.
    example... http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=364

    You can use Netmeeting or Windows Messenger. Type them in help to see how.

    Thanks for your reply. Is there any way I can start my cam from home and see
    it on the internet in my mother’s home without another cam?

    XP has remote desktop and Netmeeting also has Remote Desktop.

    XP Professional has Remote Desktop, XP Home only has Remote Assistance - so
    you may or may not be able to use that option.

    You can setup Netmeeting to use as a remote control as well - you could even
    look into a third-party product like "UltraVNC" to remotely control your
    machine. All of these things would require proper firewall, and if
    applicable, router configurations to use.

    Some camera's come with software to host a webcam - other software is
    available to upload pictures to a remote locations periodically or when an
    event occurs. You'll have to research it.

    Thanks I have XP Pro. But it seems a little bit complex for me. How should I
    connect to computer at my house from a computer in another house? We both
    have high speed connection to internet however I do not know how to setup
    remote connection. Is there any sight that gives steps clearly?
