What are the possible applications of finessTV?

Exampel-1: Clients in the local WLAN/LAN

The application area of finessTV takes place in an apartment, house or building, which are in the same network - WLAN/LAN.

The finessTV server connects to the SAT IP TV receiver. As soon as the connection is established and stable, the finessTV clients from any part of the apartment, house or building can automatically connect to it via Bonjour. Using the channel selection offered, the desired TV program can be selected and watched.

If the finessTV server offers archived movies/videos, these can also be selected and watched by the finessTV clients.

Watch movies and TV and share with friends

Example-2: Clients outside of a local network

The finessTV server is located somewhere. Somewhere means, for example, in another building, house or flat at any location - even in another country - across borders - is conceivable.

  2. the port(s) used for the connection

Setting up the finessTV server

The router on which the finessTV server is running must forward the connection to the computer, which is done by setting up port forwarding of the router. A description of how to set up port forwarding for many router models can be found under
