Port Forwarding: Device:Port = Router:Port?

  - Webcam's IP addr = 10.0.0.140, and it's set up to 
    use port 8000

  - Router's IP addr = 1.0.0.1, and it's port forwarding is set 
    up to forward port 8000 to 10.0.140.

  - I can view the camera using 10.0.0.140:8000, no problem.


The Question: Should I be able to view the camera using
10.0.0.1:8000?

No you can't do it simply.

Even if the router redirects the packets correctly to 10.0.0.140
(which it probably doesn't), the camera will reply directly to the
source machine since they are on the same subnet and the router won't
be able to do the reverse translation.
