Hi

I know this question has been asked numerous times, but I have already read two Emby connection guides and some other forum posts regarding the same issue to no avail. My issue is simply that I can't connect to my Emby server remotely. I have followed these guides:

Right now I'm stuck at the "traceroute" command, as I'm a bit unsure how to read the output:

traceroute to 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

The site canyouseeme.org shows the correct IP (WAN) as is shown on my server dashboard. When entering the port 8096 or 8920 I get the message: "Error: I could not see your service. Reason: Connection timed out".

Here are my other settings:

Emby network settings

Allow remote connections to this Emby Server (checked)

Enable automatic port mapping (checked)

Router information and settings

NETGEAR Router

Turn UPnP On (checked)

Active Protocol Int. Port Ext. Port IP Address
YES TCP 8096 8096 192.168.1.18
YES TCP 8920 8920 192.168.1.18

The second hop is not a good sign. It looks like double NAT.

It means that your private network and router (192.168.1.0) are behind another private network and router (192.168.87.0). More often than not because someone installs a personal router connected to an ISP router. Usually can be fixed by changing the provider's modem/router to bridge mode or configure DMZ.

In your case hop 3 is also a private network (100.76.0.0) so even if you fixed hop 2 your provider might be using CGNAT. If your provider can't give you a public IP address for your WAN connection then the solutions get more complex.
