Assuming PC MAIN Internal IP Address is 192.168.1.150

Media Encoder must have port 8080 and 8081 open for streaming. Router Port Should Daisy Chain Internal IP address to External Address.

admin is the admin password for the linksys router

192.168.1.1 is the gateway

For a dedicated PC you should really use a static IP address so that IP addresses will not have to be manually updated with each broadcast. That will eliminate going through this everytime you broadcast.

Here are the Linksys Static IP for the Broadcast PC – Note: Whatever address you choose must have an associated firewall rule setup in the router.


Firewall port rule for Stream

  1. After connecting the router, open a Web Browser (Such as Internet Explorer or Netscape)

This picture assumes the Broadcast PC’s IP Address is 192.168.1.150

The Gateway or Router is 192.168.1.1

Setting DMZ and NAT or Port Forwarding








In our case we setup a bcast application and make the port 8080 or 8081 and assign the Internal IP address of the broadcast – machine. One fast way that is less secure is to setup a DMZ – This will allow all access to the PC while maintaining the firewall settings for other machines.
