firewall issues on linux

  • I'm running linux - Fedora 23 on a laptop. chromecast works. For instance, I can cast netflix from chrome.

    The internal network is, which includes the laptop and the chromecast. No firewall on the laptop.

    I get a popup about firewall problems, which gives som iptables commands. Many new distributions have switched to firewallD. For those you need:

    firewall-cmd --add-port=5556/tcp
    firewall-cmd --add-port=5558/tcp


  • Any way to have videostream access your files? Only way is to drag and drop video files, but I cannot get to open the file Explorer for subtitles, does it need permissions? Im running Ubuntu 14.04. Thank you
