since i don´t have the opportunity to get a cable internet/tv connect at my home, i hired one in my friends house.
Typicaly a cable modem will provide a direct internet connection without any nat or firewall security.
I wonder, do i realy need a nat firewall, since the slingbox will be the only device connected to the cable modem?
Is there any vurlnerable service/port except port 5001?
thanks for help
One of the requirements to be able to connect to the Slingbox anywhere, is to have the device connected to the home network and for this you need a router at home connected to the modem. You can confirm this at the following link,
Hope this helps
