      I am manually configuring my router.


      I am trying to set the slingbox to use 5007.


      The rule is set up correctly because I can telnet to that port.

      I do not have UPnP this is a corporate firewall.


      I try to do the manual setup on the web interface (ie dont select a router from left of screen but enter the IP of my slingbox on the right of the screen with port 5007)


      I press test.

      The slingbox restarts.


      I can now connect via the iPad app and the web interface from outside the network.

      But I cant connect using slingcatcher.


      I believe I may be missing something - the IP address of the slingbox doesnt stay on the IP that I give it.


      Do I need to set up a dhcp rule?

      Many thanks

          Hi miketanglewood,


          Thanks for using the forums. Sorry to hear you are having issues connecting on your SlingCatcher. I did take a look at your account and everything appears to be fully set up. You may want to try to reset your SlingCatcher or router where that is and that should help further.


          Hope this helps,
