    if you need to get access to your local computer (airtime, icecast) from internet you have two options:
    1. Configure router for port forwarding from router to your local computer
    2. If you have internet accessible *nix computer in your local network you can set up nginx http server as proxy for your local airtime & icecast stream
  • Thanks, to be honest dont really understand what all this means but i will try to find out bases of what you wirtte. thanks again.

    i dont know if you mind to make a step by step guide for both methods and what are the differences. I know it is a big favor. Thanks anyway.

  • thanks, to be honest dont know what all this means and where to start but i will try to find out on bases what you writte. I know how to make som configurations with my router but this is all.

    I dont know if you could do an easy step by step guide for both methods and what are the differents of both methods. It would be a great favor and help. Thanks anyway.
  • Hi!

    When you have a group of machines sharing a router, all these machines have the same IP address to the outside world. The IP address the outside world sees is the address of the router.

    So first step if you want to connect to your machine from the outside is to enter the IP address of your router. You can get the IP address that the outside world sees by going to www.whatismyip.com

    Ok now when your request from the browser reaches your router, the router won't know what to do...what computer of yours should it forward the request to? This is where port forwarding comes in. With port forwarding you makes rules like "any request that comes on in on port 80 should be forwarded to machine xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx on port 80".

    The website http://portforward.com/ has step by step instructions on how to set-up port forwarding on hundreds of brands of routers.

    Of course Im writing this with the assumption that you can actually log-in to your router's configuration through your browser and modify settings. Also in the case of being behind two routers things may be a little trickier. The outer router will have to forward to the inner router which will forward to your computer.

  • If you're stuck behind multiple firewalls and don't understand NAT or port forwarding, why not use LogMeIn to remote control the laptop from another machine? Just an alternative option..
  • Because i need to access from a website. I got users that manage the radio station and we got a website from where i want them to do all tasks.

    i am reading all the guide and is helping me a lot. thanks so much. Do i have to open an especific port like ":80" fot http?.

    In the site you sent me, there is a program to to it but it is only in windows and i use ubuntu for airtime, is there a way to run it and make work like any other windows virtual machine in linux?. thanks again.
  • Hey, its been a while since I've been at that port-forward site, I didnt realize they plastered it with ads and free software downloads. You shouldnt have to download anything, just make sure you find the manual instructions for setting your router. It should look something like this: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Links ys/WRT54GL/default.htm

  • Yes, you should forward port 80 (this is the default for http requests)

  • I am using the Canon Printer. The light of the printer is blinking but still not connect. I checked the connection all is right but not able to access the internet. then I visit Canon printer Error b200 and found the solution to set up.
