    Slingbox not accessible over 3G (UK O2 Network)


      I have a new Slingbox Solo. I have a home network with a Belkin F5D7230-4 Router connected to an NTL cable modem. There is no specific Port Forwarding menu in the router setup, this appears to be achieved through the Virtual Servers menu. I have set this as Port 5001, TCP, with an IP address of obtained from the sling set up facility. The configuration is then enabled. Back on the iphone with WiFi off and 3G or Edge available the slinbox login ends with a message that "Slingplayer cannot connect to your slingbox. Please make sure your phone and slingbox are connected to the internet and try again." Interestingly the Belkin router configuration kicks out the enablement of the slingbox in the Virtual Servers menu suggesting it does not like it for some reason? Can anyone help. Best regards Geoff
