If you are not able to log on to the site by typing http://Ruskin-ah.dwddns2.net:8245 in the web browser you will need to follow these instructions to view your pet on the web cam.

On your computer, go to Internet Explorer. Open Internet Explorer. At the top of the screen find Tools. Click on Tools. Click on Internet Options. Then look for the tab labeled Security (at the top of the page), click on that. Then look for the Custom Level tab. Click on that. The window is labeled security setting.
