    Bought myself one of these. Got it all rigged up, but having one issue.

    When accessing the media server via my home network, I am able to stream videos fine. However, when accessing it through my external ip address (set up dynamic dns), streaming does not work - the website opens fine and I can see all of the video files, but I am unable to stream the files.

    If I right click on the black square where the movie should be, I can click on an error message stating that "Windows media player cannot connect to the server".

    Any ideas? It's rather doing my head in.

    Sounds like a firewall issue to me.
