I am thinking about getting this camera for use in my home. I do have
a couple questions that I couldn't seem to find the answers to, was
hoping someone would be kind enough to help me out!

1. I understand you can use the SoloLink DDNS Service to view the
camera images/video over the web, but I have my own web site (hosted
by another company), and was wondering if the camera can be configured
to post to my web site? Or in order to view images outside on the
Internet (as opposed to inside my wireless network) do you HAVE to use
the SoloLink service?

2. If the answer to #1 is yes, what is the cost of the SoloLink DDNS
Service per month after your free trial is over?

Thanks in advance!

No. You don't understand what the Sololink service is designed to do. All it
does it activate a little piece of software in your camer that reports your main
dynamic IP address to a central server. You can then access your camera by name
instead of IP address. There are alternative services, some of them free that do
the same thing.

You can put a link on your current web site, or just connect to the camera
directly. If your camera is behind a router, you will need to configure the
router to forward properly.
