Subsonic Integration Within Webserver/Website

Postby knemonic » Tue Jan 25, 2011 2:04 am

Hello,

I have been looking into the idea of integrating Subsonic into my web server. The reason is I want to be able to access my music collection while on campus. They block all ports.

I would assume if I could find some way to integrate a web application that runs on my website that is connected to my Subsonic system at home, sort of by proxy of my website, I would be able to access Subsonic on campus, since it would be being sent over port 80, which works fine at school.

Any suggestions would be immensely appreciated.

Thanks!

If port 80 is open at school, why not just run Subsonic on port 80 at home, and connect to it there?

Or does your ISP not allow inbound connections on port 80?

While I was at school, I did a port check and it said all ports were being blocked. I assume that even though I can access internet pages over their wifi, essentially they are blocking certain services or something over 80.

I think I am going to try that just to confirm, but I have a feeling it wont work. Campus wifi now a days is pretty intense.

Stupid too, with the advent of cloud type services on the bring of explosion, things could get very interesting soon.

Thank you for the idea, i will definetly give it a try.

knemonic, port 80 is not blocked if you can access webpages. I've tried seeing what ports are open at my college, but they typically have network debugging tools blocked for their internal networks, so it shows that all ports are blocked. If you run Subsonic at home and use a dynamic DNS service to access it, you can still access it from school. They may be blocking other ports (like 8080), but you should still be able to access your home server using port 80 or 443.

Unless I'm missing something, which does happen, the port you use on the server hosting Subsonic should have no effect on the ports that your school blocks. If you are at school and you can access the internet, the browser you use makes and recieves the requested information on whatever port it uses to make the internet connection, usually port 80. If you use Servername.Subsonic.org the Subsonic service simply passes the connection to the designated port at your SS server so that the traffic is routed properly INSIDE YOUR network. The response should be routed back to the requesting browser to the same port that generated the request.

Are you sure that the server hosting SS is actually open to internet connection?

Try connecting to the demo server.

GJ51 should be correct, your school blocking ports would prevent you from RUNNING a SS server at your school, not logging into yours.
