Viewing IPTV from behind a Siemens 2604 cable router

I am having trouble view IPTV VOD from my home. With the 2604 cable routers firewall enabled I cannot see the VOD. If I put my pc into the DMZ on the 2604 I then can view the VOD. Any ideas how I can view the VOD from behind the firewall???

Re: Viewing IPTV from behind a Siemens 2604 cable router

IF the Siemens doesn't support Multicast, your nextoption would be to set the IPTV system to "smallcast" to your target address. Smallcast is a unicast to get through infrastructure that doesn't support multicast.

You may be able to do a VPN, but many VPNs (if I'm recalling correctly) don't suport multicast.

Smallcast should work.

Good Luck

Scott
