How to use DLNA on an external network?

 

 

I can only use DLNA on an external network using the chromecast TV. Is it possible to use this function in any other way?

 

 

 

I saw something about opening port 1900 on the router.

Is that a typo?  Did you mean you can only use DLNA on the Server network?

exact, I am not able to broadcast to my Smart TV through the android application over the external network. It only works when I connect the chromecast to the TV.

DLNA is a specification that requires all devices to be on the same network.  It doesn't work through the Internet.

You should however be able to use an Android phone to cast to a Chromcast remotely but that won't use DLNA.
