Media streaming - works on LAN/WLAN but not over the internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've set up a media library in Vail and can happily stream music over my LAN/WLAN.  I have tested this by typing my homeserver URL in a browser and streaming the music via the Silverlight media player.  However if I login to my homeserver from an external internet location (I've tested several now) I get a consistent problem.  I can see all the music, select the songs I want to play and can access things like the coverart and ratings but whenever the streaming starts it stays at Buffering: 0% and never goes up.  As I said this works fine when on the LAN/WLAN.

    The homeserver is connected to the internet via a firewall router and I've checked the ports and none are being blocked presently.  Do I need to set up port forwarding anywhere?

    Many thanks
