    Default Wowza Live Stream Visible on Local Network But Not Over Internet ?

    Hi,

    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?

    Hello,

    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.

    Best regards,

    Andrew

    Andrew,

    Thank you for your reply.

    My local network computer running Wowza has local IP address of 192.168.1.9 and I have assigned port forwarding on my router so that all external requests from the internet to port 1935 are directed to this local IP.

    When I gave an IP to a friend for testing over the internet I gave them my publicly visible IP address of 86.135.xxx.xxx and port number 1935. I asked them to try to connect using VLC Player using the network address of rtsp://86.135.xxx.xxx:1935/live/feedstream I also made sure they had configured the VLC Player for RTP over RTSP (TCP) but they could not connect.

    I have also opened up port 1935 in my software firewall on the computer running Wowza to allow incoming requests.


    Thx

    Hi,

    Does the RTMP playback URL work?
    rtmp://86.135.xxx.xxx:1935/live/feedstream

    Do you mean does it work in VLC Player on a remote computer? I have not tried it, I have only tried the rtsp://....... in VLC Player over the internet.
