I have read through countless threads in here about how to set up my replaytv 5000 to work with IVS all with no luck. I have set a static IP address for my replaytv, tried countless numbers of ports for incoming shows, all of which I opened on my D-Link DI-604 router. I even ran the IVS test and it said it should be working. I have to believe it's something I am doing wrong on the router but I have no idea what it could be, is there anyone else with the router that has an ideas what I could be doing wrong?

This is from my experience with the 614, but the problem may be the same...


Dlink has a port forwarding thing that is NOT what you want.


Make sure you are setting up a virtual server (advance tab->virtual server) and not the other port forward thing (can't remember what that is)

Virtual server settings:

private IP - replayTV's static IP

port (priv and pub) - to the value you want for the replay. Pick something large like 50000 or greater.

Protocal - Both

Schedule - Always

Apply


That should be it.

thanks for the response, that's pretty much exactly what I have been doing so far on the router. although haven't tried anything with a port number that high. will give it a try when I get home.

Which test is that? I've recently written one which I haven't released upon the world yet, am I reinventing the wheel?

Replay lists your port as 55060, updated just a little while ago. Attempting to connect to you at that port results in a connection refused. Not much else I can do - if you have that port on your firewall/router forwarded to the same port on your replay, it should work. Rarely would an ISP block ports over 1024, doing so tends to break lots of things.

That's not going to tell you much since using your ReplayTV IP (a LAN IP) takes port forwarding out of the equation. You should try http://WANIP:replaytvPort/ivs-IVSGetUnitInfo . If your router supports loopback, this should tell you if things are working or not. Otherwise, you will have to try it from a PC with a different WAN IP because if loopback isn't supported that test won't work even if things are set up correctly.

I think I finally have it working, I know everyone said I should have everything set via the virtual server but I also set it up under the firewall setting and I think it might be working now
