  1. Hi everyone, I am new to the subject and at the moment Emby Connect does not work for me, locally I have no problems, it is worth mentioning that administering the server remotely is not of my interest, I just want my girlfriend to connect and see the content from her House. I have a Huawei HG8245H modem from my Totalplay internet provider in Mexico to which I entered and went to the Port Forwarding section and opened port 8096 with the TCP protocol choosing the IP of my Linksys WRT32X router as internal Host, hence I went to the settings From my router and in Port Forwarding I chose t
  2. Hi all My first post I'm really struggling to connect externally to my network. I've tried using the Emby Connect functionality and failed miserably. Whenever i try to login I just get the sign in error image attached. I even click the forgot password button and just get some page does not exist message attached. I know the password and username is correct as I've logged into this forum. The user is setup in the server to allow remote connections too. So in my wisdom I assumed that perhaps the router is blocking the access after reading the connectivity help. I'm not a
  3. Port Forwarding is new to me, so I would greatly appreciate any assistance. I've read many posts and viewed videos on this topic, but still not able to get it to work. Here is my 2-Router setup: ISP Router/Modem [Zyxel VMG 4381-b10a] LAN IP: WAN IP: 50.5.xxx.xxx Linksys Router/Wifi [EA8300] LAN IP: WAN IP: Emby Server LAN IP: 192.168.x.x I'm trying to forward 8096 on ISP Router (LAN IP) -- to Linksys Router (WAN IP) -- Emby Server (LAN IP) and it "appears" to work. However, when I test the port (8096) on CanYouSeeMe.org, it di

    Port Forwarding Issue Resolved

    So about a week ago my Nightgear Nighthawk Cable Modem that died suddenly. Luckily I still had an old ARRIS Cable Modem that I was able to reconnect until the replacement NightHawk comes in. Once I did this though, I was having connection issues and could not connect to the Emby server from anywhere in the house or phone other than my PC. I entered the Port Forwarding info from my router settings, but still no luck. Luckily Carlo was able to help me out, turns out that the router/modem did not like the external IP address and had to use the default of . Once that was added, whala! All
  5. The PC that I have set up an Emby server on uses Mullvad VPN often, but not always. My goal is to be able to watch the server's media files through other devices, no matter if the VPN is active or inactive. When the VPN is active, the connection fails. When the VPN is inactive, the connection succeeds. Mullvad allows port fowarding, and I've read a few guides on that, as well as the Connectivity Wiki for Emby but am still having trouble, either because I don't quite understand how it works or because the guides weren't specific enough for my issue. So far, I have only tried to connect throug

    Cannot access server outside LAN

    Hi all. I know this same question has been asked a number of times, but I have so far been unable to find a fix for my situation/setup. I recently purchased a lifetime membership for Emby based on using the software to watch movies/shows locally (through my chromecast) at home. My 'server' is a PC running Windows 10 and I have my media located on an external hdd. I am using a TP-Link Archer C3200 router. I have been trying for the last week or so to figure out how to access my library remotely with no luck. I have tried via the iOS app (sign in with Emby Connect and no dice) as well a
  7. I'm running emby on 218+ with Linksys ea8500. emby worked great out of the box when playing locally, however when I looked into remote access, I ran into problems. I could not access the server remotely, so obviously like recommended, I had to port forward. I have done that before so I'm familiar with it. So I open the port in the router and remote access works. However, local playback is now crippled. It constantly buffers or won't play at all. If I remove the port forwarding in the router, local playback works again. I have tried port forwarding the default 8096 port and also othe
  8. Hello I want to access my Emby server remotely and I need some help with port forwarding. I have my own router (TP-link in my room) and also a WiFi antenna/router from my ISP (Mikrotik on the roof of my house). I tried to set up port forwarding on my TP-link router, but I can't access it. Protocol TCP, port from 8096 to 8096, IP Address The problem is that I don't have access to the Mikrotik antenna from my ISP. I contacted them and they said they can't give me access, but they can do port forwarding for me. So my question is, what do I need to tell them to make my s

    Issues connecting

    Hello, I set up my emby server recently and immediately ran into the "We're unable to connect to the selected server right now" error message. I googled around, made sure my firewall had these ports open. The real problem was what I feared most: my university has all of the incoming ports closed. I can stream between devices on the same network, but can't stream between different networks (e.g. Uni wifi and Uni LAN). They don't allow port forwarding im pretty sure, but what I am really confused about is that it worked when I tried connecting my server/pc to the internet through NordVPN. That
  10. Hello, looking to get my home network figured out and then have it reachable externally. I thought I hit all the points - guess not. My setup: My install of Linux Mint. My fstab has been modified to mount at boot another drive so Emby sees it at startup and that part works. Going to http://localhost:8096/web/index.html#!/home.htmlshows the Emby homepage with my media. Problem is I cannot access outside of the box. I have samba installed too for file sharing and here is the section relating to the shared files [Movies] comment = Emby Movies path = /home/toast/Videos/Movies brow
  11. Hi Guys, I've recently ran into a little snag when using Emby / Plex. (I was using Plex before but decided to move over to Emby) It seems to be an incredibly specific issue and from what I can tell, it may be to do with my router, but I just wanted to throw this out there and see what other people think. So up until recently I've been able to run my Plex/Emby server from my QNAP with no issues. I was able to stream locally to my Android TV, local computers, iPhones etc. All working perfectly. I was even able to access my media remotely due to the port forwarding I've got set up on my B
  12. Hey all! I'm attempting to set up Emby to run externally. However, whenever I attempt to connect with my Android device in either Chrome or the Emby app, I can see the server but get the message "We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again." I've been doing a fair bit of research on this issue and haven't been able to find anything that has solved the problem (though plenty of others with similar issues). I've gone through the entire Connection Troubleshooter with no luck. I'm uncertain if my router is blocking traffic and how to

    Connection issue

    Hey, I'm having some issues with my Emby Server. My one problem so far is that I cant connect to it using another device. I've tried your'e network troubleshooting guide and port forwaded inside the firewall. I have checked if there is any instance in the firewall that blocks it somehow. My local IP seems very strange... here is a picture of it. https://imgur.com/a/En3Q8 Please help me solve this issue. Regards Hugo

    Can't remote connect

    Hey I can't seem to remote connect to my Emby server. I went through the connectivity guide, and set up port forwarding but still hasn't helped. I want to double check if the port forwarding I've done is correct. My router is the Tenda 11N. Here are the settings: When I tried the http://www.canyouseeme.org/ test I got this result: Error: I could not see your service on on port (8096) Reason: No route to host FYI I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to network setups so please explain your statements. Thank you.

    Local and Remote Access

    I have a question I'm curious if anyone knows the answer to. I currently use Emby for home use, because for some reason Plex doesn't work on my local network, but I have people that use my Plex for remote access. So yesterday I finally decided to figure and set up Emby for remote access, I added the port forwarding to my router and tested it out, it worked. Then I went to use Emby at home and it wouldn't work on the local network, kept getting errors, but as soon as I deleted the port forwarding I had added to my router it worked like normal again. Ideally I would like to be able to use just o
  16. I currently have Emby Server running on Ubuntu Server 16.04. The main problem is that i am able to access the Emby sever on my LAN yet when I attempt to connect to the server for outside of the LAN I get the error "We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again". I have read the Wiki of networking and have configured everything as suggested. I have already told my router to port forward port 8096, I have opened the port already through Ubuntu, and I currently have a static IP address for my server. Yet this error continues to show
  17. Hi everyone. Instant Emby fan and new Member here. As a network geek, I wanted to ask about port forwarding and security concerns in general. I'm a little uneasy about punching holes in my home firewall and wanted to know if others have run into similar concerns, and what they've done about it. As a former Plex user, one thing I liked was that I didn't have to port forward anything...being away from home I could still log into my Plex library just fine. I don't know how they achieve this btw, maybe via proxy or a reverse connection to the client? But in Emby, I can't access my library withou

    Connection Failure

    As of a few days ago I have not been able to reach my Emby Server outside of my own network. I have been able to previously for a while then it just stopped. When ever I try to log into my server outside my network whether it be Android app, Android chrome or chrome on windows 7 and mac, I have been getting the same message; "Connection Failure - We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again." I have tried deleting the server and creating a new one to log into but the same thing happens. I have also double and triple checked my por
  19. Hi all, First of all thanks for a fantastic piece of software and also to those of you who have helped develop such excellent plugins. I am having two problems, one of which I suspect is not due my MB3 client or server. Having said that, this is such a helpful forum I was hoping someone with a bit more technical knowledge might be able to steer me in the right direction. My setup is a Windows 8.1 machine plugged into my TV with WMC, ServerWMC, the MB3 server and Media Browser Classic installed on it. I also sometimes access my MB3 content via a web browser or the android app.
  20. Last Saturday I uninstalled MB2 and installed MB3. Main interest was Android app for portable access to my library, so of course I also bought the Android App. I've set up MB Server, MB Classic in 7MC, and MBforAndroid. Some quirks getting used to the new way of "serving" the media to clients, but all programs and apps are at least basically functioning. I can play movies (MKV and WTV attempted so far) via the Android MB client, but only on my own WiFi network--nothing external. I have set my ASUS RT-AC66R router to do Port Forwarding on port 8096 for the IP of my MB Server computer, per
  21. Port forwarding; an overview This is an overview not an in depth discussion of IPv4 networking The basic’s IP addresses have to be unique on a network if they are duplicated then data may not be delivered to its intended recipient. You could think of this like a postman delivering mail on your street, if there are two houses numbered 12 then which does he deliver mail addressed for number 12 too, probably the first number 12 they get to. Needing a unique IP address causes a problem. Due to the way IPv4 works there are simply not enough of these addresses available for every one
