How do I setup webcam

I'm new at this webcam thing and would like to know how to setup a  Pro 4000 cam so I may view my home from another computer. i.e. from work.

My first quest would be to find software that lets me control my home computer from the office. I use LogMeIn, but there are other free services.


Or you can try tricks like the one at the end of these links:


I doubt if Logitech's kit and software is up to this on its own.


Do a Google for "remote webcam" and see if anything out there appeals to you.

I have nothing to do with Logitech, I'm just another customer with time on their hands.
I try to help when the official team doesn't respond.
