    Can anyone tell how to enable my tomato firmware (latest version) to allow remote viewing of my Slingbox.

    I have done searches on this site and have come up empty on how to configure Tomato to allow remote viewing.

    I am able to view the Slingbox on my my lan with no problems what so ever.

    The problem is, I won't be able to access my router connected to the Slingbox for some time, so I can't provide the current settings.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I didn't have a problem with my router allowing me outside access once I added the port in the forwarding page. I initially thought it was the router not being configured right but it wasn't. The new sling media 2.0 was the problem. It wouldn't activate my sling box to transmit on a wan. It needed to be set to (WAN Access = yes, Remote configuration = Yes) under sling box directory-edit option. I had to downgrade to ver. 1.5 to get it too work.

    The port you need to forward is 5001 on your router.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did forward the port and was able to view over LAN.

    I will try to downgrade the firmware to 1.5 when I get a chance.

    Thanks again!

    To anyone else who had this problem, it is not necessary to revert back to Slingmedia 1.5.

    I did however remedy the problem by following windage's advice to run the slingbox wan wizard again after installing tomato. This solved my problem of not being able to view remotely.
