Help with AMIDuOS program

Hi, I bought the AMIDuOS program (an Android emulator)  for my Samsung computer, installed several apps and they work fine.  Problem I'm having is that the Casting function is not working.  I have a Chromecast device two feet away from the computer and when I use my finger to scroll down from the top, (like you would on a Tablet), the drop down menu says it's connected via Duos WiFi and under that there is a list of all the networks in the area.  The two TV's show up, I select the one I want and nothing happens on the screen.  If I get out of the program and open the Google browser, select cast and immediately I see my computer screen.   So what am I missing? Thanks

You need to set port forwarding in AMIDuOS.

As the AMIDuOS network is configured in NAT mode and it is connected to Windows system internally, the network applications/services on the AMIDuOS are not accessible to the Windows system or to other devices on the same network.

To access the network applications/services in AMIDuOS, the network ports in Windows and AMIDuOS should be mapped properly to route such network traffics to AMIDuOS.

You should know the ports number of your application to configure it. Though, we are listing the universal port numbers for few DLNA/UPnP applications at the end of this article.

In short, android emulator is designed to test apps, not to act to replace a real android device.
