I am helping some people setup a Red5 server for live video stream. It
will be taking live video from a local source and feeding it to
The issue we have is that the server will not be directly attached to
the internet. It will be connected to an internal network that uses
internal addresses (10.1.2.3 for example). DNAT (a.k.a. port
forwarding) will be used at the firewall to forward in coming
connections to the server. But in the end the address on the network
interface on the Red5 server will not be the same one that the
internet client will actually use. I have heard that this is a
I looked though the list archives and the wiki and I could not find
any mention of this problem.
Can you point me to any instruction on how to use Red5 in this configuration?
Is there a config option that I can use to tell Red5 what it's
externally visible IP address is? (because I suspect the problem is
that the server tell the client it's IP address, but it sends the
internal IP address instead of the true internet one, so it doesn't
work. Is this correct?)
Thanks a lot.
