Hi there! Great App - looks excellent so far. Thank you!

Can you tell me what port(s) I'd need to open to view files from outside my LAN, please?

Thanks again!

I have the same issue. Can you view my files while on the LAN, but can't connect while outside.

Hi,

The program uses the port 8080.

Thank you, Nick!

Please forgive me if this is a stupid question, but do I need to allow TCP & UDP or is it just one protocol involved?

Only TCP is used.

How nice! My question was answered before I got here.

When I recognized 8080 as an alternate Web server port, I checked Wikipedia and found it's official: "HTTP alternate (http_alt)—commonly used for Web proxy and caching server, or for running a Web server as a non-root user"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers

Although its unlikely RV Server users will have a port collision on their LAN, BeLight could play it safer by picking a less popular port and/or offering a port preference in Remote Viewer and RV Server.

Hi Ward,

I think that 8080 will remain the default port but we add the possibility to choose another one in case of collision.
