If your port 1024 is blocked, I'd suggest running on port 80 and if port 80 is blocked as well, change the camera to 1025, try that, 1026, etc until you find a port that is open Keep in mind that it's best to set the camera to a static IP address, so if you use a Linksys router, this means something like 192.168.1.200 or higher. Doing this makes sure the camera stays at the same IP if you have a power outage, and it also makes the port forwarding easier.
In the camera, you first need to set the static IP on the camera itself (this is a STATIC LAN IP, not a static WAN IP that your ISP would like you to buy!) Once you set the static IP, look for PORT settings on the camera. Try 80 first. Then go into your router, forward port 80 to 192.168.1.200 (or whatever you set the static IP to) You should then go to http://www.mywanIP.com and find your WAN IP address, then call a buddy on the net and ask them to go to http://YOURWANIPADDRESS and see if they see the camera login screen. If they do, it works. If they don't, then you may not have set the Static IP on the camera properly, or the port forwarding may be setup wrong in the router.
If port 80 doesnt work, change the camera to port 1025, then change the router forwarding to 1025 instead of 80 and then try again using the http://YOURWANIPADDRESS: port (thats a COLON: PORT - where port in this case would be 1025)
Keep doing this until you find a port that works, then you should elimintate the IP address issue by going with a Dynamic DNS service such as TZO.COM (http://www.tzo.com/Linksys) - this will eliminate the need to use an IP address and you can then use a domain name like YourName.LinksysCam.com instead of a constantly changing IP address.
Best of Luck..
