Did you try opening all ports? At least then you would know if it was a port problem or something else entirely.
Hi there - My Linux MCE is behind the firewall. I would like to access the media on the machine, so that we can place our video on that.
Is there a recipe to fully disable the firewall?
My machine is a hybrid and has provision to connect to its storage from the second network card. But that requires us to go to its room. Since the machine is already behind the firewall, its under a trusted network.
This is an awesome product. Congrats to the creators of the product.
PS: I'd like to avoid disabling the DHCP in it for future potential use cases. However it will always be behind the firewall.
I have my linux MCE set up behind a firewall which gives out the IP addresses in the series 192.168.2.1 to all the machines.
I have my linuxmce as static IP of 192.168.2.12
Since I added large storage to the Linux MCE machine, for media, I wanted to switch off my regular NAS and reduce one machine.
It was all possible from behind the LINUX MCE machine but not from the subnet that issued gateway to the LINUX MCE itself.
Since I am a novice, it took me a while to figure out but I was able to ..here is how...
Use the browser based access to LINUX MCE machine....
Go to Advanced >> Network >> Firewall rules
There is a small check box to disable firewall.. Click that save and now you can access the LINUX MCE using the static IP on its WAN side.
A word of CAUTION.....
This machine is now very vulnerable to attacks and breach. So please DO MAKE SURE that the LinuxMCE machine itself is behind a very good firewall.
Hope this helps people reduce one machine at their homes.
I have enough users right now, but USER CREATE and sync with samba will be next goal.
Good luck and love this product. Congrats to its creators.
