Homekit/AppleTV/Homebridge/Cam behind Mikrotik Firewall

Fri Feb 08, 2019 10:17 pm

Hi
Does anyone use this setup

AppleTV(Homekit Hub) ... Hombridge (Homekit Bridge) ... FFMPEG .... IP Cam

behind a Mikrotik Firewall ?

I am not able to get the SRTPS Stream (initiated from iPhone outside of LAN/WLAN) through the Firewall ....

regards, Richard

Hmm, nope I dont use homekit.
I have appletv at home and arlo vidcams and august locks etc and they all work with my iphone behind a mikrotik with no special settings??

the special thing is to initiate a rtsp stream from external LAN/WLAN ... and then establish the stream

the way is

iphone ... internet .... mikrotik router .... appleTV .... Homebridge... cam
an then back !
rtsp stream from cam to homebridge
srtsp stream from homebridge to appleTV
„Apple magic“ from AppleTV to iPhone

None of my smart devices require any special router settings, otherwise it would be a nightmare for them in terms of service support.
Many of them have had early issues even getting attached to the local wifi network but most have it down now.
