    Slingbox 350: accepts connection on port 5201, but cannot setup through slingbox.com

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      The slingbox is setup behind two routers. Port forwarding is enabled on both. I have confirmed that a connection from the Internet (not my local network) to port 5201 is accepted. Internally, the Slingbox also accepts connections on ports 22 and 8888, but these ports are not forwarded from the Internet.


      Nevertheless, when I goto Slingbox.com/getstarted, I cannot get it to find the Slingbox. When I goto whatismyip.com, write down the IP, goto a machine outside my local network, I can connect to that IP on port 5201.


      I have factory reset the Slingbox several times while on the network. I have tried visiting Slingbox.com with multiple browsers and multiple computers, to no avail.


      Please help! I will share my IP privately if you can better diagnose.
