I haven't found a way to, not while allowing the end user to still just type in the subdomain (emby.domain.com) in a browser and reaching the server.

FYI. Was able to get a year of Torguard at %50 off with coupon code "vpnmentor". I'm not assoc with them. Just thought I'd pass it along. Hope that isnt against forum rules.

Hi @Doofus, I'm having issues with the port forwarding. I've signed up for Torguard, Selected a sock5 ip from their list. In the MY SERVICES within their client area I selected MANAGE, then REQUEST PORT FORWARDING, added the port and pasted the socks5 IP, protocol TCP and port/auth 192|SHA256 (I assume this selects the encryption?). The TorGuard dashboard connects and shows the Dedicated IP that I chose, and I can browse without issues. When I start Emby it shows the correct dedicated IP as the WAN address and the port I want to use. However on my tablet when I type in that dedicated IP and the port I forwarded, it fails to connect. If I click on the WAN address (the TorGuard dedicated IP) it says this site can't be reached.

 

I selected TCP though out the TorGuard settings. Would UDP make a difference? TCP and same port are what's selected on the router.

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thanks!

 

Bobby

If the IP in the Emby dashboard is the TG IP that should be correct. On your tablet, why are you entering the IP? Have you tried using Emby connect?

Just because I typically use the tablet for accessing Emby from everywhere. When I use Emby connect it does not find the machine. I does show my other emby server running on the network. Different IP, different port.

And you're sure you followed the guide, closely? All of your port forwarding has to match. Router through the VPN, it has to line up. Try canyouseeme and see what it tells you.

canyouseeme does show the dedicated ip and is good when using port 80. It fails when I use the forwarded port 8097. This is the port number forwarded in the router as well, which has worked fine for accessing this particular server for several months. I went through the setup twice before posting. I will again.

If you close the TG app and restart the server so it uses your IP, are you able to get access?

Hmmm...can you PM me all of your config. For your router and TG? Screenshots would be good.
