I want to manually port forward ports 8888 and 8081 but not sure what to put in the "port range" box? Thanks

Click "Help -> Am I online?".
If you get a connection error, you will also get instructions on how to solve the problem.
Typically you will need to enable UPNP in your router, or you will have to forward some ports manually in your router.

I figured out to just to put 8888 and 8081 in the port range box.

Do I port forward the my local IP address or public?

My public link is http://76.27.37.190:8888/out.jpg
My local link is http://192.168.1.20:8888/out.jpg

When I originally set up Yawcam I had UPNP enabled on my router and the box checked in the Yawcam settings but my cam was not online. I then attempted to manually port forward ports 8888 and 8081 but that has yet to solve the problem.

Do I want to port forward my local IP or the public one? I assumed local which is what I originally tried.

I think I have it working. Can someone let me know if this link works? http://76.27.37.190:8888/out.jpg

It turns out my Firewall (McAfee) was blocking Java.
