:)

I'M TRYING TO GET A RADIO BROADCAST UP AND RUNNING BUT AM HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING PAST MY FIREWALL. i HAVE A BT VOYAGER 205 ADSL ROUTER AND AM RUNNING XP. i NEED TO CREATE AN ACCESS POINT FOR OUTSIDE LISTENERS TO HEAR THE LIVE BROADCAST FROM THE PC BEHIND THE ROUTER USING PORT 80. WHEN THE LISTENER SUCCESSFULLY CONNECTS TO THE PC WHICH IS BROADCASTING FROM BEHIND THE ROUTER, THEIR REQUEST IS TO BE FORWARDED BY THE ROUTER TO THE PC. CAN ANYONE HELP COS I AM AT A LOSS!

THANKS IN ADVANCE! :tazz:

There is an advanced zone yes but asks for a user name and password

Mook, I cannot give you specifici instructions as I do not have this modem, nor is a manual available.

There should be a section on things like DMZ, or port forwarding...perhaps you can descrive what you see, but I am shooting blind without more info

there is a section for Virtual server and DMZ.

The virtual server asks for things like local IP to, Local IP from and protocol.

The DMZ asks for Lan IP address only.

Not really sure which one to use myself, have opened ports on my firewalls although I beleive there is an XP firewall built in but not sure where to find it. Do you know???

In order for an outsider to see your PC, you need to add your LAN IP ADDRESS to the DMZ.

To turn off the XP firewall, right click MY NETWORK PLACES, choose PROPERTIES, right click your LAN connection (LOCAL AREA CONNECTION), choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCD, choose SETTINGS under WINDOWS FIREWALL

I have serious doubts about what you are doing....I only feel it is fair to point out that you are about to expose your computer to the world so you can allow people to broadcast, but it seems like you lack proper understanding of what you are doing.

You could be putting your PC at great risk.

start > run
cmd
<enter>
type
ipconfig

the IP ADDRESS is your LAN address

to broadcast, your listeners will need to know your WAN address. This will appear somewhere in the settings of your router

broadcasting a radio program is inherently dangerous if you are doing this all on your lonesome....what exactly is your goal here?

I am not really the person to ask...you need to get together with someone who is already doing it to determine the best way to go about this and keep yourself marginally protected...does the software provider (of the program you will be using) have a forum
