This is a long shot, but I thought I'd give it a go, just in case anyone knows how to do this.

 

 

 

So, I have a device that can stream live video in multiple formats. This device can access and connect to a wifi network and start streaming.

 

Now I want to be able to take this device (HOST) with me to a remote location and if there is 3G /4G signal, hook the device up to my Android mobile via tethering and stream live. So far I have achieved that, by streaming (rtsp) to a service like Youtube or Facebook live. Essentially the device talks to the server, initiates a communication and starts the stream.

 

Now what I want to do is use the same scenario as above, but instead of streaming to a service, just be able to connect to the device from another point (CLIENT) which is in a totally different network and view the stream. My limited networking understanding thinks that that entails forwarding a port to the host and accessing it via IP/port from the client. However the host is behind a tethered mobile connection, which complicates things quite a bit.

 

What I am thinking is... Is there a service that can talk to these 2 devices and help connect them up so they can start the stream? Something like the way Skype works?

 

Or is there a manual way of doing any port forwarding on the Android device?

 

Thanks heaps in advance for any kind of advice :)

Most 3G/4G cellular network internet connections use CG-NAT and don't allow for port forwarding of incoming connections.

 

We first struck this some years ago when a client's ADSL went down and we set up a temporary 3G internet connection for them, and could not get remote access to the network running using the methods we were used to.

Can use "direct" APN (on 2degees) or setup a VPN.
