My friend is trying to broadcast a live event using Windows Media Encoder 9.0. They are running Windows XP Pro 1a and have Verizon DSL. They use Windows to connect to the DSL ( not Verizon software). However, I can not connect to them no matter what. It is not a problem with Windows Media Encoder because I have broadcast using Windows Media Encoder 9.0 in the same way with Verizon DSL as well.
Now, the connection string that Windows Media Encoder gives for them is http://192.168.1.XXX/1121
Their ip address viewable from the internet however, is different. My question is, does Verizon use a firewall/router which is causing this problem? Because I have a Linksys WiFi router and my IP is also 192.168.1.XXX.
If I do not go through my WiFI router however, my IP address is not like theirs ( 192.168.1.XXX ). Mine isn't filtered perhaps? I did get Verizon much earlier then they did, and I believe it was a business plan, so is it possible that it is the DSL that is preventing the connections?
Is there anyway around this?
