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.

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 would ask u a question on that but i am unable to get port forward working. Very frustrating. I used the canuseeme site to sewe if my port is open and I am still getting an error.

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.

Use the LAN address, not WAN. The rest is correct
