ANSWERED Alexa "am i authorized access to your server, it doesn't seem so" - Linked / Emby Connected

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to get Emby to work with Alexa, my Home Assistant instance is able to see emby fine. emby connect is working fine, alexa sees my server in the "link page"

 

But no matter what i do i still get "am i authorized access to your server, it doesn't seem so"

Nevermind, I found the instance.

 

Your server is returning error 403 when it tries to retrieve your Emby user. Are you blocking Alexa? It needs to be able to access to your server remotely.

Thanks for the PM, Alexa was routing via USA AWS IP address, i have geoblocking enabled which was blocking all countries other than my own. all sorted now, wasn't expecting a reply on Christmas Day tbh. Merry Christmas.

Does anyone know how I can get a list of Alexa ips? The AWS ip list doesn't seem to matchup with the Alexa requests. Is this something Amazon would help with?

Hi,

I wonder if this might be the problem I'm having. What's the best way round it as I'd rather not open my system to the whole world (only allows my country currently).

Any advise please?

Thanks

Alexa is going to request information from your server over a https connection through emby.connect.

 

As long as you have emby connect, WAN ports open over https and a solid password on each of your users, I don't you think you have anything to worry about here.

I run Emby on a Synology NAS so it's not the only thing hosted on there, plus I use a reverse proxy server so I can run all services through one port, hence why I'd rather not open said port to the whole world.

Right unfortunately that's just a requirement in order to use Alexa or Google Home. That's just the way those services work.
