First off, hi! I'm new here and to surround sound in general. I just got a decent system working after years of dreaming about it and now I'm definitely hooked.
I spent some time yesterday trying to access the hub, but I'm currently limited to tethering/hotspotting from my phone for internet. Has anyone figured out port forwarding over a phone?
I have found some sort of conflicting info about it. I've read that you can't because most mobile networks have a kind of firewall on the entire network, but that you can usually pay extra to get a public ip, which would allow port forwarding. I also downloaded "fwd" port forwarder for Android, which can check if your ip is public, and it claims that mine is. But after trying every combo of settings I could think of, still no luck. Apparently this is an issue that gamers deal with and it sounds like at least some have had success.
I don't think using a hotspot to be a part of the hub is a good solution, but it would be a start for me. I'm hoping to move within a year, so if it's not possible (without paying a much larger phone bill) then I'm happy to hang out and chat till then!
