Firewall ports

Post by nickk » Sat Jul 04, 2015 12:04 pm

If you need to configure a port-based firewall:
(not required for Windows Firewall)

Discovery:
Allow incoming UDP port 65001 - required for HDHomeRun discovery and for clients to discover the record engine.

Client services:
Configure the record engine to use a given TCP port for client services:

Windows: Use regedit to set a fixed port number:
Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Silicondust\HDHomeRun\DVR
Name: Port
Type: DWORD
Value: <port number>

Linux: Add the following to hdhomerun.conf:
Port=<port number>

Then allow incoming TCP connections to this port number.

Outgoing connections:
The record engine will make outgoing HTTP connections to HDHomeRun Tuners and to my.hdhomerun.com during normal operation.
