Thread: Port 80 not working?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Port 80 not working?

    I've opened port 80 in the VHost file and restarted Wowza: <Port>1935,80</Port>

    Video on iphone will play using 1935:
    'file': 'http://XXX.XX.XXX.XXX:1935/vod/mp4:bigbuckbunny_450.mp4/playlist.m3u8'

    Will not play on 80:
    'file': 'http://XXX.XX.XXX.XXX:80/vod/mp4:bigbuckbunny_450.mp4/playlist.m3u8'

    Am I missing something?

    Thx

    Check Wowza log for bind errors. Be sure don't have web server on port 80. Be sure tcp port 80 is open and properly mapped to Wowza server ip address. You can test connectivity on port 80 by opening web browser and entering following URL, should show wowza server version number:

    http://[wowza-ip-address]

    Charlie,

    Do you mean "http://[website-ip]:80"?

    Without or without the port it is the same thing when teh port is 80 and the protocol is http. The default port for http is 80.

    Thanks Charlie, I tested Wowza connectivity and did not get the Wowza version number.

    You said "Be sure don't have web server on port 80. Be sure tcp port 80 is open and properly mapped to Wowza server ip address."

    I'm not very technical. How do I do these things?

    Thanks!

    Check the Wowza Media Server logs and see if there are bind errors ([install-dir]/logs). If there is a port conflict you will see ERROR log statements every few seconds saying it cannot bind to port 80.

    triple,

    Also, you can shutdown Wowza and use the netstat program to determine which programs are binding to a certain port. In linux it might be "netstat -p". Check the netstat help to determine the correct CL parameter for your OS.
