Hi everyone,

 

thanks for this software it's amazing !!! I have a couple of question about the network in emby-server. I installed it on Debian Jessie on my personnal server on the Internet. For this usage I disable DLNA. I also set up nginx as a reverse proxy.

 

But For this usage I would like to tell to emby to _only_ listen on the localhost (127.0.0.1 or ::1)

 

And since both  my ISP and my server are in IPv6, is emby compatible with it ? 

 

In advance, thanks.

In emby you can try to bind to 127.0.0.1    

If you are using nginx as your reverse proxy, nginx handles all client requests on whatever port you have it setup on, nginx also talks ipv4 and ipv6  as well as http and https (if you have that setup) to the internet clients.  Assuming nginx is on the same server as emby, nginx only talks HTTP IPv4 to the localhost (127.0.0.1) emby server, emby does not need ipv6, only nginx, so you should be able to bind emby to 127.0.0.1.  You should have in your nginx config  should point to emby server 127.0.0.1  NOT "localhost".

 

If you have nginx setup correctly you will still see ipv6 info in the emby logs.     I'm very picture oriented so here is a simple diagram of what i'm "trying" to say lol...

Thanks !! do you know where I can find this option to bind emby to socket to localhost ?  When I launch emby server I can see that it bind to port 8096/tcp and 8920/tcp, I assume it's for http and https. But what is the 7359/udp and 1900/udp for ? DLNA ? Airplay ?

 

Thanks !
