MediaTomb Remote Access From Linux (via SSH?)

Postby Mad-Halfling » Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:04 pm

Hi folks, I've set up a Mediatomb server on my home network and can browse the media on it fine from XBMC and my Android tablet, but I was interested in trying to get remote access to it set up.

I followed this guide http://blog.codezen.org/2011/06/29/andr ... -anywhere/ for setting it up on Android using port forwarding via ssh with ConnectBot and then manually setting up a WAN server on uPnPlay and it all works and plays my media, so it's certainly possible. I am struggling to get it working on Linux - I can set up a port to forward via SSH and access the MediaTomb web admin page using this, but I can't figure out how to get a media player to access the service with a manual configuration, rather than just letting it find the uPnP server on the network. Can anyone suggest any thing, please?

Cheers
MH
