What ports are needed to access an Omnia VOLT® Remotely

Updated 1 month ago by Mark Manolio

Scope

This document covers the ports that are needed to remotely access an Omnia VOLT® if it is behind a firewall or other router.

Description

I can get to the webpage interface and remote control my VOLT when I'm on the local network connection, but not once it is at the transmitter site behind a firewall. What remote control ports need to be forwarded through a router to access the web interface and send/receive the control and metering data?

Setup

The Omnia Volt uses Port 80 for all standard web pages and Port 7999 for control and metering. You must forward both of these ports through the router.

If you have other equipment at the site that uses a Port 80 web interface, you'll need to use a router with a "port replication" feature to route Port 80 data to the proper internal IP address.

You will likely only have a single IP address at the remote site.

If you don't know what you public IP address is, open your Web Browser and search "what's my IP address?" Most browsers will display your current, public-facing ip address.

You may need to forward multiple ports on your router if you have multiple devices. For example;

  • http://173.164.96.123:8080 - Forwards to port 192.168.2.50 port 80 on your Omnia VOLT
  • http://173.164.96.123:8081 - Forwards to port 192.168.2.60 port 80 on your transmitter remote control.
  • http://173.164.96.123:8082 - Forwards to Port 192.168.2.70 port 80 on your audio monitor

in other words, the router forward different ports from a SINGLE IP Address, to a single port on different IP Addresses.

Different routers have different names for this function.
