    Kodi playing files on Wrong computer or is it me


    Hi folks

    Installed Kodi on (remote) computer 1 with the Web interface enabled --OK and plays local files if I'm logged on to that machine.

    On Computer 2 (local computer) I logon in via browser to the kodi web interface which is ipaddr of computer 1 :8080 -- I'm testing via local LAN on 2 different physical machines

    Computer 1 plays the files but I want to play them on COMPUTER 2 !!!!!!
    I'm sure I've hosed something up here but I can't see what I'm doing wrong.

    File content is being played on the wrong computer.

    Any ideas --shouldn't be that difficult to watch / stream (legal) content from a remote machine. I don't want all the B/S of VPN's etc --KODI's web interface in theory should do it perfectly.

    Cheers

    Hi folks

    Fixed -- FF not supported like that any more !!!!
    Create your own VPN (openVPN) then files easily shareable (safely)

    bit of a bummer as it was much easier just using a browser with IP address and SSL.

    marked as solved (not really but alternative workaround).

    Cheers
