Steaming Windows Media Server
Posted on 2003-11-04
I am trying to be able to stream media from my web site. The current config is 2 servers, one an IIS 6.0 for web site, and the other Windows Media Server. Everything seems fine. I can click on the link to the .asx file and everything works as planned as long as I am on my local LAN. However Windows Media will not connect to server on the internet, the error message for WMP is .0xC00D1198: Cannot connect to the server.
The .asx file reads mms://web-23/playlist.asx. I am behind a firewall, and have a cable modem, I am currently forwarding ports to servers for services they run. I am not sure what port I may have to open, or if this is a DNS type issue, since I do not host my own external DNS presence, would the Streaming server also need a dns record, and how would I point to this server. Hope someone will be able to make sense of this. Thanks
