I am a new user of Emby after using Plex and XBMC for many years. I'm having trouble accessing the mac osx server remotely via IOS iPhone X. I'm able to access Emby on the local network with my iPhone but cannot when wifi is turned off on iPhone. I have a airport extreme router and have tried port forwarding with no success. When I click on the server from the IOS app I get the spinning wheel and the message comes up that says: "We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again."

 

When I login into Emby from IOS app it show my server but when I click on it nothing happens. I've also tried to add server with lan address and port, and signed into Emby connect, all to no avail. I've attached a log file not sure it is the right one, it is the most recent one.

Hi there, so you're not able to connect from other devices inside your home network, is that correct?

I’m able to access the Emby server on my iPhone and iPad on the WiFi network that the Emby server is running on. Just can’t access it on those devices outside of the WiFi network.

Ok, I would suggest checking out our Connection Troubleshooter:

Please try the steps listed there and let us know which ones succeed, and which ones do not. Thanks !
