    Default Problem with local and external IP


    I am having trouble getting Wowza to work on my local PC across the local network and also on my external IP.

    I can access Wowza both through localhost and my [static ip]:1935 and have also assigned my PC a static IP.

    My main aim is to get Wowza to work with Adobe Live Media Encoder or an alternative, onto the web and across the local network.

    I can't seem to work out what is preventing it from working.

    I'd appreciate any help you could give me.

    Hi James,

    Accessing Wowza from outside the firewall, from the public Internet, will require some maintenance on your primary router/firewall. In enterprise environments, this will likely involve a requisition process while in a small business or home environment, opening ports is possible by logging in to the router user interface.

    We are not equipped to support your particular router/firewall, however, we can offer some useful resources. These are the general steps:

    1. Visit and note your public IP address.
    2. Login to your router and forward traffic on the ports required for streaming to your computer/server IP address

    For help with many common router configurations, visit
    3. When access has been established, test the connection from a computer/device, outside your firewall, using this URL in a web browser:


    This should return some version information, which confirms that you have established connectivity and are ready to begin streaming.

    I hope you find this helpful.
