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

I realize this is an old thread, but I am having issues remotely connecting to my server via the IOS app.  I have setup emby connect and can see the server in the app.  When I select the server and then select connect, I get the spinning wheel and then a failure to connect message.  

 

I have attempted to setup port forwarding.  Using an ASUS RT-ACRH13 Router.  My ISP is using some sort of GNAT config and tells me that I need a static IP for an extra cost.  Under hosting in the dashboard I have allow remote connections to the server checked.  I followed the steps in this thread to setup port forwarding.  Any Ideas?

As far as I know there is no way around this.

You can try a reverse tunnel. But I don't really understand it.

There are some commercial products like ngrok (they have a free tier) that can create a secure tunnel that will work behind CGNAT.

https://ngrok.com/product

Not sure how it behaves with Emby.

You may be able to do it with a VPN service as well if you have one that will allow you to forward ports.

I did the port forwarding thing in the past but got paranoid. Lots of nasty stuff out there but make sure you do SSL.

What I ended up doing is I VPN into my router (Ubiquiti USG) and then run Emby as normal. I don’t really experience performance issues. It just works...
