I can see the other person, but they can't see me. There must be something I need to turn on. I followed the instructions for installation. Anyone have any ideas????

Probably need more info. . .

Netbooks usually need to turn on/off built in webcam.

Depending on the software you may need to select your video source.

Is there a lens cover on it? Usually they slide to the side.

Natterjack got me to thinking and after trying a few things I got it to work. Man do I look bad, as in Nasty. Didn't realize 63 was going to look this bad:eek:
Thanks Natterjack

You didn't say what web cam or software your using. I'm going to guess it's a port forwarding issue.
Do the instruction mention any port(s) you have to open on your router or firewall software ?

If your ISP isn't blocking the ports this may help.

Your software may use UPnP in your router if it's enabled in your router.
Beware, UPnP has security issues.

Good luck.
