Video server not responding with DHCP assigned IP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks;

    If this is the wrong forum, I hope someone will boot this to the right one.

    I have a Win10 system that is hosting a video server.  When started, it listens at a specific address:, at port 8100.

    I have configured my router to assign the IP address to my video server system, (based on the video server system's MAC) and after booting the system, the correct IP address reserved in the router was correctly associated with the video server system.

    The router was also configured to pass traffic from a specific port (8100) to

    However, when non-local systems access the public IP of my video server system at the correct port, it does not work

    What makes it work is if I assign a static IP address - the same - to my video server system.  After that, accessing the public IP of my video server system at the correct port brings up video from the server.

    Is there some explanation for why the video server system needs to have a static IP address for this when DHCP had already assigned the same IP address?
