Re: Beginner Questions: spyserver.config

I would recommend changing
bind_port = 5555-6666
to just a single number of your choice so that you know for certain what port will be used and can set up your router to forward that port inward to your Spyserver.
5555 is the normal value but as far as I know you can pick any number between 1024 and 65535.

No, sorry.  I was just using 192.168.xx.xx as an example of the types of number I've seen before.  They didn't appear in anything I was trying today.  spyserver.config came preset with  "bind_host = 0.0.0.0" .  I figured that was just a placeholder and not an actual address, but Prog said to use it.
