I've testing an audio stream at this link....

click here

I need someone from outside my home network to access it and let me know they can hear the music.

it works fine within my own home network, but I need someone outside to try too.

I've got the appropriate port open on the computer sending the stream..but maybe I need to do something with the routers settings?? and i'm not sure how to do that.

many thanks.

Nothing coming from the loft

  cozza101uk 23:55 22 Aug 06

Ok- thanks for that. clearly the loft isn't connecting with the world!

It's a Windows Media Encoder stream on Port 8080 which is open on the firewall for that PC.

do I need to change the settings on the router as well and how would I go about that?

Thanks.

To allow access to anything that's behind a router you need to forward the relative ports. Go to portforward.com (click here) to find out which ports you need to forward for your application. Or if you can't find it on there post the name of your application and I'll try and find it for you.

it's a Belkin router. I'm running Windows Media Encoder and want to forward Port 8080.

What's the model number of your router? I'll still look in the mean time while you find out...
