      Yes, but I actually did the print/scan server on the NSLU2 and the Webcam/surveillance server on the Pogoplug because it is more resource intensive. I monitor multiple cameras. You could also just use an ip webcam which usually includes a dynamic dns service contracted with the manufacturer. You actually don't have to subscribe to a dynamic dns service provider. You can modify one of the dns update scripts to email you your dynamically assigned IP (even encoded) whenever it changes. It usually doesn't change that much. Main thing is setting up your iptable rules/port forwarding.
