    I'm not sure if this is even possible but I'm going to ask anyway. My
    boss wants a setup that allows a 24/7 real time camera view of the cash
    register and various points throughout the store through his computer,
    which I think is possible... but he also wants a camera view of the cash
    register from our other location 45 miles away. Is this possible? I'm
    thinking that if we get DSL with a static IP at the other location then
    I should be able to set up something with a relatively cheap computer
    and camera. I'm just not sure where to start looking... and google
    gives me an endless sea of possibilities.

    Sure! Try the free, unlimited, Basic version of HomeSentinel!

    HomeSentinel is software for Windows XP systems that you can
    use to help protect your home or business. It can continuously
    monitor the video from up to four webcams and alert you by email,
    phone, or both when it detects motion. Email alerts contain the
    series of video images that caused motion to be detected.
    HomeSentinel also allows you to view the video live over the
    Internet from a remote computer, via Windows Media Player, a
    utility that is available on most Windows computers.

    Download the Basic version of HomeSentinel from:
