View Full Version : web cam problem

My new surf cam from Dick Smith shows a video image of me but when I try to connect to my daughter ( at a pre arranged time) we can't seem to communicate in any way. It tells me I am logged on to the server - so I can't see what is going wrong - any ideas please

Denise, I think you will need to tell others what program you are using to connect, plus what your operating system is.

Also what virus protection software and any firewall software that is running would help. Some of the people here are good, but not quite that good that they can second guess!

sorry, I'm new - I'm connecting with Microsoft server, am operating 98 and have Norton antivirus. Is that ok?

Ummmm.... Microsoft Server doesnt ring any bells with me (apart from being used by large businesses to run their Networks)

Does it have any other name, like ICQ or something??

Have you tried using Yahoo messenger?

Its pretty easy/straightforward. If I can do it, anyone can.
