How does port forwarding work for the Restreamer?

So that the Restreamer can be reached via the Internet.

What is port forwarding?

Port forwarding allows remote computers (e.g., computers on the Internet) to connect to a specific computer or service within a private local area network (LAN). A public IP must be available for the Restreamer's IP to be accessible from "outside" after installation.

What ports are needed for the Restreamer?

Open ports for HTTP and HTTPS are required. We recommend using HTTPS on the website.
