Cannot connect outside of home network?

Postby spinnin » Thu Apr 26, 2012 4:33 pm

This works great when i am at home on m network but as soon as i leave ad connect to a outside network it will not work. It times out in IE or it gives me the following error on the iphone app.

"Error contacting remote potato away server: Could not connect.

I have forwarded my ports so i have no idea why this is happening?

Are you using your external ip address? When you are home go to and see what it says. That is the IP address you need to use when you are outside your house.
