You have to forward your ports and get a dynDNS account in order to stream content to external networks. If you want to stream just to your local network, skip step 1-6.

Check your router's manual on port forwarding and dynamic DNS.

I'm still confused. :confused: :D What do you mean stream to external networks. Whats the difference between an external network and a local network. Can you give an example.

Your iPod is in the same network (behind the same router) as your Mac = Local Network

Your iPod is behind an other router = External Network (I call it that)

OK I think I understand now. So is that why I haven't been able to stream to my iphone at work just using iPhoneRemote?
