Hey Red, I just purchased MB for android and do I need port forwarding enabled when I'm not on wifi? I took the IP # from the Server and it workd on wifi, but not when I shut the wifi off to test it.

OK, I put the router IP in, but every time I hit ok name keeps blinking, above the nip address in android. I do see it appear in connected items in the server dash though.

Red, here is the file. I don't even think I have the port forwarding ebabled. Going to try it now. I am enabling 8945 only?

Based on that log. it looks like you either didn't click on a server in order to connect, or there was no reply. The non-reply should have been logged.

I see android listed in the server dashboard, but nothing else. Should I enable a password for the server and clients? I'm thinking I would want to do this if I enable port forwarding for security?

When MB server starts up, I have no password set so it's right there. I made a second account for my son with parental ratings. MB Classic is set to log in as me automatically. But I don't have any passwords set on anything.

When I log into MB on android, I get an error message "could not connect to library". What would I put down for name in the setup screen above IP address?

The name has no bearing on usability. It's just an easy way to differentiate multiple connections. You've forwarded port 8096 on the router?

OK, just checked for lan.....connect, see media and it does play, but there is s small delay with playing the item itself....maybe about 10 seconds.

that's fine, the server has to start the stream/transcode. So that's normal. So it's purely through the cellular connection you can't connect. You need to have port 8096 if the server is win 8, or 8096 & 8945 if the server is win 7, forwarded. The rules should look something like this. Can you confirm you have that part set up?

Server is on win7. I have enabled port 8945 on the router, but do I need to do anything on the htpc where the server is stored on?
