I have 2 computers in my LAN which one of them has a dedicated 45631 port forwarded in the router. I would like to assign a different port for the second computer so my wife can use the other computer to stream/transcode in parallel.

Is there a way to change the port number in the Air Video Server?

Hi,

currently there is no way to specify the port. Are you using Air Video over internet or just over local network? If your router supports UPnP Air Video Server will assign different port on router for each computer automatically.

I want to stream video on the internet with 2 server running in my home. Within the LAN, there is no problem choosing between the 2 server. But I can only assign one port forwarding in my router when accessing from the internet, that leaves one server not be able to stream to another iphone.

Hi,

does your router support UPnP? If it does and you let Air Video configure the port mappings the server will make sure that each computer has different port assigned. Currently it's not possible to do this with manual configuration.

My router does support uPnP but I couldn't get it to work outside the LAN

Can you enable UPnP on router, enable automatic port mapping on Air video server and then send me the Remote Support log as private message so that I can troubleshoot it?

Okay, here's a brief description of what I've found so far....

I think even my Dlink DGL-4300 router supports uPnP but I think it's not working 100%. Air Video server will fail the uPnP (under remote) test even when I enable uPnP in my router.

I bought a new Buffalo router which supports uPnP and viola it works! I tested with my iphone connected via 3G choosing the different server(s) in my LAN, router can pass the traffic along correctly.

But there is one thing I found is that Air Video will only config the router once. Say once Air Video server is up, if there is any changes in the router (usually all manufacture requires a reboot of some kind), the next time Air Video server will not work since the router lose the uPnP configuration. If there a possible for the server to issue a repeated uPnP ping to the router?

In order to get this work around, basically after the router is reboot, just reboot each Air Video Server and that will solve the problem

Air Video should check the port mappings every 5 minutes and if the mapping is missing it should recreate it.

Is that on the latest version or it was there since 2.1.3? Maybe I didn't wait long enough...

I think it should be in 2.1.3. It is possible that you didn't wait long enough. The feature is mostly meant for cases when something restarts your router when you're not at home. Otherwise it's probably more convenient to just stop and start the server. (or disable and re-enable remote support, should do the same)

I have one more suggestion since I install the server in my Windows Home Server. If the server reboots due to MS upgrades, I have to login to my personally account to have Air Video Server starts streaming again.

I was wondering if the server can be installed as "service"

I tried to do it manually by adding the .exe as a service. The iphone can see the server but the directory is not being listed (blank)

Hi, see this thread for running Air Video server as service.
