• 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 want to get into the streaming of my scanner but I can't get a connection from my IP. I use Windows Media Encoder, Linksys wiresless router and a Westell modem with Bellsouth as my DSL connection. I sure the firewall or something in that area is the problem. I can connect to Echolink so I have set up a connection through the firewall before. Can anyone go through the steps I need to get this working? Thanks.

I stream my scanner on media encoder just so can listen to it remotely. I also think your limited to 5 connections to your stream. I needed to open a port in my router to make a connection from the outside and locally. When you set up the stream in media encoder it tells you which port it using. That's the one you need to open in the router's configuration. That could be causing your connection problems.
