Setting up TZO DDNS Service on a Linksys Camera

The Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) feature on Linksys Home Monitoring Cameras is useful especially if your Internet IP address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).  To easily identify the current IP address assigned by your ISP, you can sign up for a free 1-year DDNS service from TZO.

NOTE:  This feature will only be useful if you want to access your camera remotely.
