So by your post I am guessing you already have it set up on your LAN right? OK now do you know the defualt IP address the IP camera is set to? The best way to configure the router is to set a static IP address for the IP camera then open the ports the IP camera's manufacturer recomends. What camera do you have?

Thats awsome. So all you need to do is forward port 85 to the IP address the camera is set to and set your port triggering for the cameras IP to look for port 85. Does the manual tell you how to access the camera from the internet?
