Steaming Windows Media Server

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

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Hi!

Have you forwarded all ports from firewall to media server ?
 In: UDP between port 1024-5000 (Only open the necessary number of ports.)
All porst between 1024 and 5000 needs to be forwarded to the mediaserver, unless you force it to use only one port, which is disabled by default.

I have forwarded the correct ports, although I did not forward all I have told the server what ports to use.  I have got it to work on the internet, however I am not able to access it though our corporate firewall,  I know I could stream on port 80, but I already have that port forwarded to the web server.  I am going to say this is done.  I thank you all for your help.
