I want to use Air Video on my iphone when I'm about and not on my wifi.
1.What do I need to do to get this to work???
I want to use my 3G internet connection, but whenever I try that and click on my server(macintosh.local) it says it cannot connect to it!
2.How do I fix this??

I'm using an iphone 3GS with an iMac computer.
And I'm using a "Linksys" router!
3.Does this kind of router work for use of Air Video off my local wifi?
4.How do I do the port forwarding thing???

Thanks

I believe the adress "makintosh.local" won't work when you're trying to connect from the internet. You have to find out your computer's IP adress (to do it, try www.whatismyip.com , for example) and add it into server list on the iPhone

Ok, I did what you said, but when I do that a message pops up saying "Communication Error: error occured while communicating with server; timed out"
How do I fix this?????

You need to be more specifc. A "Linksys" router is not enough information. Anyway, if your router supports UPnP and it has it enabled Air Video Server should be able to configure the port mapping itself.

However to connect from internet without knowing the exact IP address you need new Air Video client that has not been approved by Apple yet. Hopefully they will do so soon.

This is how remote connection should work with the new client http://www.inmethod.com/air-video/remote-access.html .

Ok thanks so far... but lets see, I have a Wireless-G Broadband Router. The model is WRT54G.
Can this router support what I want it to do?

And how exactly do I configure this router with forwarding and all to get it to work??

Please help, and thanks for helping so far! I just don't know exactly what I am doing

Your router should support UPnP (unless it has an old firmware). To enable it you need to go to your router's administration interface. Once you enable the UPnP, Air Video server should be able to configure the port mapping itself.

So, this will allow me to use Air Video Server from my iphone on a 3G connection not just Wifi, right??

It will work when all these conditions are met:
- Your router has public IP address (meaning your provider didn't put you behind one big NAT).
- Your router has UPnP enabled
- New Air Video client is approved (we have no control over when and if that happens). However the client does not have anything to do with port forwarding. The only difference concerning remote access compared to current version is that the new client will allow you to identify a computer user server pin.

Its very simple even manually (cca 30s work), just setup your modem/router, its there something like "port forwarding" or so, put your local ip adress and port 45631. In Air video client put yout external (public) IP of your PC and its works over 3G perfectly. But you will need fast upload speed or reduce quality of the video.

Btw many thanks for this software, its one of the best applications for iPhone (simple/clear/fast/functional). Its like from Apple

Thanks for the Quick Reply. In my preference setting for AirVideo there is only Scaling Mode and Check for WiFi. When I turn off Check for WiFi and use 3g it just stuck on Loading screen forever. Anyone has a complete step by step with screen shot on how to do this. This application is great but difficult to set up 3g.


Thanks Noob.
