Port Fowarding for my Logitech Webcam

I have been trying to manually set up port forwarding for my logitech computer and it's not working. It says I need to:

Forward the ports manually by changing the settings in your router.
You need to forward port 8888 for TCP traffic and port 8081 for TCP and UDP traffic.

I have tried that, but I am still not getting any streaming or http. Can you advise? I'm at a loss. I have a

    Thanks, I figured out that I was not telling the linksys which port to forward from (IP address that is). It finally worked and yes I did both entries, so hope this helps someone else. ;)

Do you know how to do portforwarding in general?
Have a look at the manual - page 21. You can also find it here:

You should give your computer a static IP address (or enable static DHCP), otherwise the forwarding will fail if DHCP assings a different address to your computer.

Important is that you have two entries, one for port 8888 /TCP and a second one for port 8081 /Both.

If this helped, please come back and leave a comment, to help others with the same problem.

My logitech webcam is connected but when i pull up the software it says my webcam is not plugged in

There may be an issue with your USB port.
Try unplugging your camera, Restarting the computer, and then plugging the camera into a *different* USB port. The camera should re-enumerate in your system, and that should fix the problem.

Instructional steps to follow
  1. Verify that the Logitech webcam is connected to your computer if your computer doesn't register its existence, if the webcam's power light isn't glowing or if no image shows on your webcam software. The webcam's USB cord should be firmly inserted into an open USB slot. For the best results, use a USB port on your computer instead of a port on a peripheral device like a USB hub or a keyboard.
  2. Adjust your room's lighting if the Logitech webcam image is excessively dark. Logitech's cameras have no built-in light. For the best viewing image, your light source should come from behind the Logitech webcam instead of shining into the webcam's lens.

  3. Quit any open programs other than the software that's using the Logitech webcam if you get errors regarding more than one program trying to use the camera (e.g., a chat software and a voice-over-IP program both trying to use it at once). This can create data problems and software conflicts.
  4. Check for updates to your Logitech drivers from Logitech's support site. The company regularly releases software updates and patches that resolve commonly encountered glitches and problems. Download the patch and double-click it to initiate an automated installation process. Your computer typically needs to be restarted before you can resume use of the Logitech device.
  5. Contact Logitech's webcam support line at 646-454-3209 if you still cannot get your webcam to work correctly. Support technicians are available weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST and on Saturdays and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST. Have your model and 10-digit part number ready. Such numbers are usually located on the bottom of the webcam or on its packaging.

Logitech Video cam 9000 with Fedora 12, no video is obtained with Skype , which comes up, gets its password, says something about another version, or starts, but does not use video Radha Krishna...

When you connect the Logitech WEBcam to the computer/laptop and configured the Skype Video Options for LogitechWEBcam and when you open Skype again you get a different WEBcam even though had saved the settings.
The fix - connect the Logitech WEBcam directly into the
computer's or laptop's USB port, DON't connect the WEBcam into an USB hub and then the USB hub into the compurer's or laptop's USB port.
