Amazon Video



  • Hello every one in the community, I try looking for something similar and apologized in advance if there is another post similar to this one somewhere else but could not find anything relate to my issue.
    I have been testing pfSense for personal use for about 6 months now, my goal is to replace brand name router with it and serve my whole network with this wonderful product. the following is the system I am testing;
    Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU W3530 @ 2.80GHz
    8 CPUs: 1 package(s) x 4 core(s) x 2 hardware threads
    12230 MiB of RAM (12GiB)

    The entire system works fine and no issues so far with the only exception being that I can not stream Amazon video while connected to my system, every other streaming service out there works fine on it (Dysney+, Hulu, Netflix, Crackle, Tubi, Kodi) I can seem to find what the issue is with Amazon, it will spin and tell me it can not connect to stream, it will give me like previous and such but when I try to stream the content it will stop. Has any one experienced anything similar or do you know of any fixes for this issue, this is the only thing preventing me from deploying the system to entire home network as we use from time to time this streaming service.

    Another piece of information these are the services I have on my system currently.
    dhcpd DHCP Service
    dpinger Gateway Monitoring Daemon
    ntpd NTP clock sync
    snort Snort IDS/IPS Daemon
    syslogd System Logger Daemon
    unbound DNS Resolver

    Thank you very much for your help and guidance and keep it up, there are tons of good information in here.

    Thank you;
    Nightwak.



  • You need to look at your log files but off the top of my head it is the snort that is the issue. You can try looking at the log files and unblock those that are getting blocked.

    As a test turn off Snort and my guess is Amazon will work.

    As many people recommend best to turn thing on in small pieces so once something breaks you can undo the new change or at least know where to begin your troubleshooting.



  • Thank you cburbs and sorry for posting so late. I have not tried removing the SNORT and now I am experiencing something even more interesting, the same situation when I try to stream AMAZON videos, now this time I just leave the TV on and after a few seconds, say about 50 seconds to a minute, it start playing the videos so it looks like at first it blocked the packets but then, somehow it let it thru.
