Ok im all setup via LAN for stream my media succesfully but now i want to stream my media anywhere with a wireless connection (WAN).
I have been doing my research for 2 days and so far i have tried setting up a FTP filezilla server with a no-ip host ip on windows pc but it doesn't work neather with cifsmanager nor ES file explorer FTP tab, vpn is not a go for me because stream videos can be choppy, anyway what i want is to find a reliable way to do this at list for music and videos, i have been searching but all i find is how to do it "local" which i already have setup and running. So big question here is does anybody know a reliable way to reach this - Windows to Android media streaming?
I'm on windows 7 x64, using FileZilla 0.9.37 beta. Also have my IP address updater through DynDNS. I like to keep my home PC sleeping when not in use, so I use ProWol to wake it up prior to accessing. It works like a charm on the NT. This may help in setting up the server.
Glad it's working. One thing to keep an eye on is the activity log. I found that when I kept the server running all day, I'd like see a few times a week, hackers trying to break into my server.. They couldn't get past the account name and password, but was disconcerting having these guys trying to get through. I now have my server set up to lock out any IP address after 5 failed to attempts for a few hours. Then they snoop on someone else's server. Now I have have WOL set up and running can wake it remotely and I have my pc set to sleep after 10 minutes. I don't need to keep my home pc on and running.
It took some doing to get my router set up to allow WOL over the Internet, but it is worth the fiddling around to get it set up. I'll share some pointers if you are interested in getting WOL set up and running.
