    Air video on different network?

    Here's my question. If I'm at a Sparmuck's Coffee chain, and I want to connect and watch a video on my home server on its own private network is that possible with air video? It seems like it should be, but i don't know how the whole firewall situation would work out.
    Or how about if my girlfriend wanted to access the server through her iPhone from her house while on her home network.. Would that be possible using the same settings I use at home for the app?

    Anyone have experience with this? I've just never thought to use it away from home before for some weird reason. If I could stream a movie at her house from my server to my iPad and display it through the video accessory with my iPad to her HDTV?? Well, i think I would just be pretty damn happy at that point!

    Might hit Starluck's tomorrow to test it out..

    The Air video server has an option for Remote viewing. You enable this and it gives you a 9 digit or so code if I remember correctly. You input this code on the iPad and it works fairly well.

    When I hit "Test Connection", it gives me a popup dialog that says "Your AirVideo Server Instance is NOT accessible from internet." Any Idea as to what i need to do to make it work?

    I believe you have to do port forwarding by accessing your router. I can't remember what the port number is but it should be listed in server or at least at Air video site. And when you do over the web, make sure you set password too.

    If your router support uPnP, it will automatically create the route. If not, you have to do something like this where the IP address points to the computer on your network that is running the airvideo server. Ignore the mstsc.exe line

    Well it appears that my verizon router doesn't support UPnP! So that's likely why, I've forwarded ports, added exemptions and added the route. I've also enabled universal plug and play, although it seems to do nothing. Man, this is so disappointing! I guess I'll have to spring for a nice wireless N router in the near future..

    You forwarded correct port to ip of your Airvideo server and it's still not working? Maybe you have firewall that's blocking it?

    Well, I added the port to forward to the ip and it's still not working. Then, I tried adding the service to my exempt list, also enabling upnp on the server pc and it still doesn't work, although I'm now prompted with a password when accessing it from my LAN on the iPad. So it kind of halfway works. My money is on the router not supporting the upnp standard, even though it says it does.

    Ok, it works now! One should NOT check the "automatically map port" checkbox if routing manually or if the router doesn't support the upnp protocol. They didn't make this clear, but it makes total sense.

    I don't think it should matter as long as you have forwarded the port. I'll go home after work and check my router settings. can you post screenshot of port forwarding mean while?

    P.S. minus whatever info you don't want to share in that screenshot?
