      Allowing External Traffic via Sky Router

      I currently have 2 PC's on my internal network and would like to allow access to one of the machines (which is running Icecast 2 Win32) I have added services on the router and staic routes etc etc but don't seem to be able to access it externally! It works fine internally so I know it's something to do with the router but think I might now have successfully burn't out my brain trying to get it to work. Has anyone else got this to work with their router..if so a little guidence would be very much appreciated.

      James

      afaik you should not be able to view anything externally from within the network ie locally.

      What would you use to test it client wise?

      If you let me know I can maybe try for you.

      Re: Allowing External Traffic via Sky Router

      Well its a basic setup for Internet Radio, The client is Winamp and that needs to connect to my local machine 192.168.0.2:8000/stream.ogg.m3u I have set up port 8000 on the router and allowed trafffic to and from my 192.168.0.2 machine. I am guessing that I need to have another link to connect to the router eg 90.x.x.x:8000 which then channels the traffic to mu local machine? when I try 90.x.x.x or 90.x.x.x:8000 or 90.x.x.x:8000/stream.ogg.m3u all I get is that the page cannot be accessed well apart from the first one as that allows me to access my router!

      Mount Point : (/stream.ogg) : Click to Listen
      Stream Title: Cube Radio
      Stream Description: Cube Radio
      Content Type: application/ogg
      Mount Uptime: Sun, 15 Apr 2007 19:42:37 GMT Daylight Time
      Bitrate: Quality 0

      That is from me accessing by your external IP:8000

      So it is working, you just cannot access it internally, you could try

      Code:
      127.0.0.1
