    Windows 8.1 64-bit Slingplayer App Over Internet

    aerohead888

      Good morning,

       

      Not sure if this is the right forum, but I didn't see one for Windows PC and this was the closest I could find.

       

      I have the ProHD and it is working fine at home and partially over the interwebs.

       

      I am running SlingPlayer v2.0.0.465 on a Windows 8.1 64-bit laptop.  It works fine at home when I am on the LAN, but I can't seem to get it to work over the internet.  It is not a port issue as I can access the same box with my iPhone over LTE and I can access it by streaming via the slingbox web page.  It is only the windows app that is causing problems.

       

      I can log into my sling account but I get the following error message whne I try to connect via the app:

       

      "There was a problem communicating with the Slingbox.  Try connecting again."

       

      Has anyone come across this?  Could this be a setting within Windows that prevents the app from connecting?

       

      Thanks!
