• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I know this has been discussed at length but for the life of me I cannot find the thread. I remember reading about VLC media player and port forwarding but can't remember where. Can someone point me in the right direction, is this the best method? Is it fairly simple to do? Sorry for bringing up an old topic but the search button is revealing too mant irrelevant results for me. Thank You for your guidance.

Thanks, I will try that, is it pretty straightforward to setup, does the audio transmit over wifi to my pc? Or do I need to connect the audio out to audio in?

yes ProScan is very easy to install the software and setup. You will see the scanner screen and also hear it on your PC. The audio volume and mute are controllable. You will have full and complete control of the scanner from the PC and still have scanner front panel control.
Proscan is the best there is available today.

Ok thanks I have it installed but am having trouble finding the port that the scanner uses. I have the IP set to static in my router, but what port?
