brossow posted a topic in MacOSI'm a new Media Browser user, and I seem to have successfully installed the server (v3.0.5482.1) on my Mac Pro running OS X 10.10.1. The installation itself seems fine, but when I use Web Connect to connect to the server remotely, be it through one of our Rokus (using the PIN to connect) or through the web interface, I'm presented not with my server but someone else's -- and it's random whose I see. Sometimes it's a local address that, of course, I can't connect to, but sometimes it's a server accessible from the Internet and I've actually been able to access the other users' content (not that I wanted to -- I was just curious how far it would let me go, and I'll tell ya, there's some weird stuff out there). If I login via the web browser and then refresh the http://app.mediabrowser.tv/selectserver.html page, it shows a new server every few minutes (or more frequently), sometimes with a fairly generic name but sometimes with the other user's full name (that is, the name of their computer includes their full name per Apple's default naming scheme). Yikes. If I skip the Web Connect on my Rokus, I can access my own server just fine from my local network, but I cannot access it from another network unless I map the port in my router and point to my home IP address. Not only is this inconvenient for me, but far more importantly it seems like a security risk and/or breach of privacy for the other users. Even if somehow I'm doing something wrong, this shouldn't be possible. Anyone else seeing this? As a brand-new user, I'm not sure if this issue is limited to the Mac server or is a Media Browser issue in general. I did at least a brief search and couldn't find other similar reports, but it could just be the search terms I used. Thanks, Brent
