Hi,

is UPnP activated on your router? I found a tutorial on how to activate it on FRITZ!Box: http://jdownloader.org/knowledge/wiki/reconnect/fritz-box-activate-upnp

Also note that not all routers support UPnP equally well. Sometimes you need to log in to your router's web admin interface first from the computer running Air Video Server in order for the router to get detected as UPnP gateway. If the implementation is really bad UPnP may not work at all, but hopefully this is not the case.

Dear admin

Thanks a lot for your reply!
I solved my problem...my firewall was responsable for it. It blocked airvideo!!!

But great work...the program is brilliant! And its alwas nice to have such a service to talk with!

Thank you!

Idk if upnp is activated or not? I cant seem to figure out how to do that? There is something in the interface that says upnp but if I check it or uncheck it, I still cant get air video to work over 3G connection.

Don't you have an OS X Tiger? If you do UPnP will not help you. For Tiger you will have to configure the port forwarding manually (in your router's settings).

Port forwarding setup depends on your router. It's different for every router type. There is no one solution. I have found a guide that might match your router but I'm not sure how relevant it is. I don't have any experience with Linksys WRT54G so this is probably as much as I can do.

(for Air Video the port number is 45631).

I think the easiest way to get AirVideo to work over 3G is to

1. set up an account at dyndns.org and connect it with your ip (or with your router, most of them support dyndns and will always deliver the right IP)
2. forward the mentioned TCP port 45631 to your computer
3. type in the dyndns adress in your AirVideo client on the iPhone and boom, you are connected...

what I was surprised about though was that it worked even though I didn't check "Enable access from Internet" ...I guess because of the port forwarding it just reacted as if the request was coming from my wifi within...

anyways, very cool app you guys built there. Thanx!

*edit: I didn't even have to turn off the "WiFi Check" in the iPhone settings...at startup it mentioned it, but it still worked just fine over 3G"



Hello everybody!

That's what i thought, to use a dynamic dns service to "find" my home pc.
I'm connected trough a usb adapter (hsdpa).
Is there any chance to reach my server? I've downloaded the no-ip client and set everything, but doesn't seem to work..
Is a problem of port forwarding? I've looked for setting on no-ip website, but i couldn't find nothing useful...

Anyway really great app!
Ciao from Italy (that explains my english!)

You don't need to use dynamic DNS with Air Video. Air Video can locate your computer if you check "Enable Access from Internet". What has to be done however is port forwarding. Unless your computer is directly visible from internet.

Thanks for your quick reply!

I see..
I feel accessing the internet with a HSDPA usb key doesn't allow you to be visible...
I've tried "Enable Access from Internet", uncheckng the wifi check, but nothing happens.
There is also a service from no-ip.org ( http://canyouseeme.org/ ) but i get timeout on every port...
Anyway it was just a plus, i'm very happy with the corrent features, watching movies in my bed with my iphone on my belly!

Thanks again!

I recently setup Air Video to work with home network when I am travelling. I use Cisco VPN (IPSEC) to connect to home router and then access the Air Video app pointing to local Windows server. I am on O2 network and the streaming works like a charm. This is a secure solution.

Hardware / Account

Netgear (ADSL2+ / Wireless / Ethernet Router) - main router
Cisco 837 (ADSL / Switch / VPN) - buy off ebay for £20-25, I have ADSL2+ so used this only for VPN
Windows OS - runs Air Video server and file shares
Dyndns.org - Get public IP address for my router (ADSL2+ IP don't really change, this is just in case)

Step 1: Configure Dynamic DNS accounts on Netgear Router
Step 2: On Netgear Router open firewall port to allow IPSEC and forward incoming IPSEC / VPN connections to Cisco 837 Router
Step 3: Configure Cisco 837 VPN and Network settings (this is hardest part)
Step 4: If Firewall is enabled on Windows OS, then makesure you allow incoming connections for Air Video (Windows would of prompted you when you first installed Air Video)

With this setup, you can access any other service that is running on your home network e.g. RDP, Web cameras, etc

I have got a net gear router wgr614v9.
I have port forwarding switched on and every time i restart the wifi router, air video is accessible from internet. But round about 5 minutes later without doing anything it is not accessible....... Any solution? It drives me crazy!

Did you configure port forwarding or port triggering on your router? Port triggering sometimes behaves like that, you need to configure port forwarding.

Port triggering is switched off, port forwarding switched on for the specific IP and everything......
I'm about to buy a new router.
