Do you know how to forward your ports on you router? Take a look at this, and scroll down to external connetions

Hey doofus, thanks for responding. I was just reading that page. Im running windows firewall so I should be able to set that up. How do I download emby connect? Would that be the easiest for remote viewing obn my phone?

Once you get your port forwarded, you should just be able to sign in.

Yes. Use the address and port that you see, here

What are you trying to do?  If you are using Connect, the first thing you need to do is link your account to a local user.

I think I steered you a little wrong, earlier. When forwarding, use the Local IP that shows in your dashboard.

And then for Emby Connect, as Happy says, you need to link your account. It's pretty easy.

The dashboard is showing the right external ip address correct?  Are you using a vpn?

For port forwarding, I used the wan number & tcp & 8096.I did this for my router. I then looked up how to allow access in the windows firewall & I setup that to allow access.I am not using a vpn.
