From what I can tell from D-Link pages, Microsoft's pages and some other 3rd party companies- the only way to get the pan-tilt to work over the internet is to have Net Meeting working and they all seem to agree that means to put your computer outside the firewall.

I do not think that is a very good solution, especially when talking about your main home computer that probably has a lot of confidential data on it.

I have tried to contact tech several times and that is all I get. I know of several other products that allow you to see desktops etc without exposing yourself in this way.

I would hope that X10 would look at other solutions and also warn potential buyers of the pit falls.
