Lock to specific external ip address

Recommended Posts

gillmacca01

I have Emby installed on a QNAP, which also has a VPN service running through OpenVPN.

Scenario 1: VPN turned off, I can remotely connect to Emby

Scenario 2: VPN starts up before Emby has started, so Emby uses the VPN address. Unable to access remotely

Scenario 3: Disable VPN, start Emby and then restart the VPN. Emby show normal external address (not running through the VPN), and I can access Emby remotely.

 

Is there a way for my to get Emby to use the non-vpn address only (maybe by locking it or something?)

 

Many thanks for any help

Hi.  Have you explored the Network settings in your server dashboard?

I have looked in network settings, but I'm not 100% sure what I should be doing in there,

Am I suppose to put the IP address in 'Remote IP address filter'

You would put it in the "External Domain" field.  This used to have a better description than it does now.  We should look to re-improve it.

You will have to remember, if your WAN address ever changes you will have to update this field to access Emby again.
