I've recently set up my pi with a firewall because of precautions that I found out about whilst browsing the forums about Internet security. But now I've blocked miniDLNA from being able to access it through Allcast on my Android phone to stream media. I've also broken the link using tightvlc to access it remotely, although I have been able to reconnect remotely via ssh.
Now I know most likely I have to do some port forwarding/opening of some sort but I have, for the life of me, not been able to find a clear set of instructions to figure out this issue. I've managed to get this far searching Google but have come up short and plain burnt out. I appreciate those helping in advanced.
