Thread: Android can't see Kodi upnp server

  1. #1

    Default Android can't see Kodi upnp server

    server: running Kodi 14.2 on openSUSE 13.2 64bit with KDE 4.x
    client: Sumsung S5 phone using airwire and upnplayer

    using netstat (see below) I determined ports to open but it did not help so disabled firewall and phone still did not see Kodi. Tried 2 different upnp clients (upnplayer and airwire)

    the clients work because I set up Kodi on my Windows 8 laptop and Kodi showed in the list of servers

    Searching seems to always come back to the firewall but as I said I tried disabling it.

    I'm clueless when it comes to networking and such so any help is appreciated.

    also of note (maybe) kde-connect and chromecast both work fine

    thanks,

    When the firewall is disabled, can you telnet to the port using the
    extrernal IP address?

    For example, if your network card's address is 172.16.0.25, if you use
    the command:

    Code:
    telnet 172.16.0.25 9090
    What happens?

    Don't try the router, try it from your local box. Just use the IP
    address of your box's interface.

    I assume your Android device is on the same network as your PC, so you
    wouldn't access it using your public IP address on your router, you'd
    access it directly inside your network.

    UPnP is generally considered a security issue, but basically what it does
    is tell the router to forward the port. But inside your own network, it
    doesn't matter and isn't needed.

    You didn't specify the port - so it's going to default to the telnet port.

    You need to use:

    telnet 192.168.1.36 9090

    If in the Yast firewall, the Broadcast tab I accept broadcast reply for all tcp and udp services for the Internal Network then telnet connects but Android still not seeing Kodi

    telnet 192.168.1.36 9090
    Trying 192.168.1.36...
    Connected to 192.168.1.36.

    How did you test that the firewall was stopped?

    sorry been 1) away 2) frustrated with multiple system issues and 3) currently dsl is problematic so service is intermittent - I do apologize for not responding sooner and am appreciative for the assistance

    I accepted Yast's message that the firewall was disabled but using the GRC ShieldsUP firewall test (on grc.com) it appears there is an active firewall as all "common ports" are reported stealth, could this a hw firewall in the router?
