So this thread has been super helpful thus far - I think I'm at the very end of figuring this out. Basically I've done the following things:
1) Registered a domain
2) Changed the A record to point to my IP
3) Changed the CNAME record to point to my URL
4) Changed my http port numbers to 80 in Emby
5) Changed my https port numbers to 443 in Emby
6) Forwarded those ports in my NAT for Emby's internal IP
My DNS is still propagating through the aether so that isn't working yet, but when I attempt to hit my server via IP the connection is timing out. In fact it appears to start loading Emby (the black background loads in) before I get the error.
Any ideas where I might be screwing up? My ISP does not block port 80 for what it's worth.
Thanks for the PM..... I tried your domain name and it points to your IP correctly... I get a 404 error which only a web server can send me.. Which leads me to believe either your ISP is sending me that as a form of blocking, or you have something on the emby pc running on port 80 already. Try changing emby back to the default ports, and then open those ports in your NAT then try again connecting to yourdomain.com:8096 see if that works, let me know if it does, I can try it as well remotely..
