Allowing DLNA through VPN


  • My setup:

    LAN -

    • Netgear router
    • XenServer 6.2 for my Hypervisor hosting the following servers (Which is hosting the DHCP server also)
    • Windows Server hosting SSTP, and PPTP (For my Apple devices ... boo apple)
    • Ubuntu Server 14.04 using minidlna as DLNA server
    • All on

    I can connect my clients to the vpn from the internet fine, and everything works well apart from DLNA.

    My client gets the ip config (example):

    • IP:
    • MASK:

    After doing a little googling (Nope, I'm not going to say the word 'Binging' in public Lol), I found that the problem may be that RRAS is not forwarding broadcast packets.

    Could this be the problem? If so, how do I fix it?

    Thanks in advanced
