Server and Client connectios
wie sie funktionieren!
The connection of the client with the finessTV server
Within a local WLAN, the client automatically finds the connection to the finessTV server via Bonjour.
Outside of a local WLAN, the client needs Bonjour to connect to the finessTV server:
The public TCP/IP address of the router and the port(s) used for the connection.
a port forwarding of the router - the router must forward the connection to the computer running the finessTV server.
For the connection the finessTV server uses two ports
the port number entered in the server window - e.g.: 1400
and a second port: port number + 1 - in our example: 1400+1=1401
Port forwarding must therefore be set up for two ports.
Setting up port forwarding
For a description of how to set up port forwarding for many router models, see https://portforward.com.
Router address and port
The public TCP/IP address of the router can be found in the local WLAN, by selecting our remote address service .
In addition, some routers - like the Fritz!Box - can be set to send a notification email when the public TCP/IP address has been changed.
Another solution could be to use a dynamic DNS service to connect to the server via a hostname.
