Wowza Live Stream Visible on Local Network But Not Over Internet ?
Would anyone please be able to help me with the settings to get my Wowza live stream to broadcast over the internet?
I have got it setup so that I can view the stream in VLC Player via rtsp on other computers on my local network but it is not visible to external computers via the internet. I asked a friend to connect from an external location over the internet and they got messages saying access was unavailable. I have got port 1935 open and the stream is running OK so it looks as though it might just be some configuration settings?
Do I need to have Wowza installed on a web server to publish the live stream over the internet? I have it installed on a local PC that is on my local network without any software such as Apache web server running?
Running a separate Web Server such as Apache is not required.
If your server is using a private IP range, 100.64.x.x - 100.127.x.x, 172.16.x.x - 172.31.x.x, 10.x.x.x, or 192.168.x.x this could be the issue. In order for Internet viewers to see your server, you may need to enable port forwarding on your router or assign your server a publicly routable IP address.
