WatchGuard Firewall Configuration Guide
The Firewall Configuration Guide provides information about how to configure supported firewalls to enable streaming to Pixellot.
All encoders use various internet ports to communicate with Pixellot, all of which need to be made open to outgoing communication.
These ports are:
|Remote Management/video streaming
|Video streaming backup
|Graphics, Watermarks, etc.
|Scoreboard Graphics Generation
|Backend ZIXI broadcasts
One or more of these ports may be blocked by the Fortinet firewall which is located on your network. If the firewall is active on the network, these ports would need to be opened by an IT/network technician.
For best results, it is recommended that you are running a stream when checking your network, as the encoder will be actively attempting to make the necessary connections.
