[KBA-00012] How to connect an Omnicast™ client application through a firewall

This article explains how to connect a monitor, an Archive Player, or Config Tool through a firewall for an Omnicast™ system.

Summary

This configuration is only available on a system which includes the Internet Videotransmission Server. The procedure applies to a system with the following architecture:

[Server] ---- [firewall-router] ---- [Client application]

More Information

On the firewall:

Open the incoming port 5001-TCP and 5002-TCP of the firewall-router.

On the client application:

At startup, on the connection dialog, the connection type should be set to Internet and the IP address of the server should be set in the editbox Directory.

Troubleshooting:

If you are using Network Address Translation on the router, make sure the ports are properly redirected to the Archiver.
