Ok so I'm not a network novice, but clearly I am missing something here. I've searched the forums and have only found mention of using http port 8096 for external connections. None of the documentation/posts I have seen specifically speak of using https, which I would like to use if possible.
The firewall on my 2008r2 server has the proper ports all opened, the exe is also allowed access, and the port forwarding rules are in effect on my modem. On the web console of EMBY it even reports "Remote Access: https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8920.
Now when I go to my EMBY Roku app, it doesn't matter if I enter https://:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx or just the IP and then use 8920, the Roku will not connect, it gives the following error:
We were unable to connect to this server. Please make sure it is running and try again.
HTTPS works from a web browser, but it will not work from the EMBY Roku, nor the EMBY client for android.
Now I know all is working on the server/firewall side because if I go back and connect using the IP and use 8096, boom, connects and works both Roku and droid clients. I am using the latest release of EMBY server, as of this writing, and I have removed and reinstalled the EMBY Roku client just to be sure.
Can the roku connect over HTTPS and if so what am I missing?
P.S. EMBY ROCKS!
