    WebSlingPlayer & Dish 922: Does not work in home network, only internet. Any clue?


      I am not able to get the SlingPlayer pluging to work when it is connecting in direct mode, that is, within my own internal network. It works fine when it has to go out to the internet and then back in. 


      My setup:


      * Windows XP, SP3 on a laptop connected via Wireless to home network.

      * Dish 922 receiver running on wired home network. Network is 192.168.1.x, sling box has dedicated IP at


      Scenario 1

      I had my wireless router setup to create a second network in my house to run in 192.168.3.x. When I connected my laptop to this network, I ran WebSlingPlayer and I *was* able to get a connection and it worked. I looked at the log file and noticed it actually went out to the internet and connected to my 922 using my external IP address. I am assuming this is because the UDP discovery request did not hop over to the 192.168.1.x network. All of this worked fine.


      Scenario 2

      I flattened my wireless network and put it on the same 192.168.1.x network so my laptop would be on the same network as the 922. When I ran WebSlingPlayer, I get an error saying it could not connect to my sling player with error (2). I looked in the log file and it shows it found the player on my internal network and tried to connect to it directly and failed. Thus, trying in "direct" mode did not work.


      Here are the key take aways from the log files....


      Working log: This shows the log file that worked where it went out to the internet. I masked my IP address.

      00:00:03.469  00000840  SBDEVICE: CSBDevice::ConnectTo : IP: 71.252.xxx.xxx, Port: 5101, Direct: 0

      00:00:03.469  00000840  SBDEVICE: CPS : Next Connection mode attempt : SNATT


      I used a file comparison program to see what differences I could pull out from the "broken" attempt versus the one that worked. Here is what I found.

      From there it is just some analytical stuff. I also attached the full broken log file if that helps. Does anyone have an idea what is going on? This is very frustrating.


      Sling works via my iPad using the same wireless network but I am not sure if it is staying internal or external on my networkk.
