Is 1:1 NAT needed for a LAN PC using windows media encoder for streams?
I hope I word this right. I feel like such a N00b having to ask this. Ok here is the scenario;
I have a computer on LAN 184.108.40.206 that is using windows media encoder to stream live video on port 8120.
I have a NAT rule allowing all, any port to dest 220.127.116.11 port 8120. I have a rule on the WAN
TCP/UDP any any 18.104.22.168 8120 any
I don't have 1:1 NAT on anything right now. I'm not exactly sure what the use of it is anymore. Been awhile since I used pfsense! The Webpage is pointing to "scr=http://WANIP:8120 which it should still be routed to the internal lan destination correct?
You dont need 1:1 NAT.
1:1 NAT is to forward all ports at once to a single server.
I think you just want a normal port forward since your server is running on only one port.
What exactly is the problem?
Can you not connect?
No I cannot connect. I have the port 8120 forwarded to 22.214.171.124 but it never happens.
Can you post a screenshot of the NAT forwarding you created?
Also the Firewallrule on your WAN.
