Remote access... tried everything

Remote access

Best Answer Luke , 30 October 2016 - 01:18 PM

I would turn windows firewall back on because disabling it can often cause these kinds of failures, believe it or not.

 

Then check windows firewall for any rules blocking mediabrowser.serverapplication.exe. if you see any, remove them. after that, check the external address that is displayed on the front page of the emby server dashboard. is this address correct?

 

What Emby app are you trying to connect from?

Hi been on the forums for while now searched the many topics on remote access I still can't get my issue fixed.

I am bit new to all this I followed the guide
https://github.com/M...ki/Connectivity
Still not working
I forwarded my ports 8096 and 8920
I turned off (for testing) windows firewall.
I added rules into firewall

There zero problem accessing via home network but remotely it's lets me login see the server but will not let me login.

I have tried turning off port mapping and reporting https as external still didn't work (they are currently switched on)

I checked online to make sure ports are forwarded
I have read a lot of topics about remote access and still having issues... bit annoyed as emby was kind of sold as click and play which is far from the case. Enjoying it at home but I travel a lot and finding this remote access problems most annoying

I may be seeing this wrong but your internal ip address ends in .152 but in your ip forward i dont see 152.

Did you register with emby connect and add that username to your user.

yea as denz says, on your VM router, emby and emby2 should look like below, assuming you are not using Upnp

 

emby    8096   TCP   192.168.0.152

emby2  8920   TCP   192.168.0.152

Not sure I understand the issue since your external ip is in your screenshot and you are reporting external access as https I can see your log on screen "CastleOS".  https://ipaddress:8920

I think I have it sorted now guys. It was a combo of incorrect ending of ip address and also Luke wa right media browser was blocked in firewalls.

Thanks again guys for fast response
