Connecting to setup in front of ooma (Slingbox)

Post by Jboissicat » Sat Apr 04, 2009 8:32 pm

Hi.

I am having some problems connecting to my slingbox
I have ATT Uverse Tv,net

My network looks like

net -> Router -wifi-> Computer
Router -> TV box -> Ooma -> Slingbox

I have have replaced the slingbox with my laptop and went into setup.ooma.com and set the ooma DHCP to only give out 1 IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.10
I set that IP as the DMZ
I then forwarded the sling to the ooma.

(I previously had the sling connect directly to the router and it worked fine)

I cannot connect to the sling.

Is it possible to connect to setup.ooma.com from the other side of the ooma?

No

Treat the ooma as another lan device

Dont run anything behind it, think of the ooma as another pc and stick with your pre-ooma configuration.

You should be able to sling in/out like you did before
