I have a few IP cameras that will be behind a firewall I cannot modify (cannot open, or forward ports). They need to be reachable from my server sitting across the intertubes.
Without having gone very far into my readings yet, I would like to know if the following will work, or if it is not what I understand it to be.
I was going to use a dd-wrt based router behind the 3rd party firewall and create a pptp connection to my own server. I am hoping this type of connection allows me to talk to the ip cameras, and also allow them to connect to my server (they post motion detection via http).
So I guess, something like a reverse connection via ssh. But managed wholly by the dd-wrt router and my server.
