5. Can I connect to a webcast through my corporate firewall?

 

This is a summary of information that is normally required to view a streaming media event for both RealPlayer and Windows Media Player through Corporate Firewalls. Windows Media will allow streaming over port 80 with HTTP. This will bypass most corporate firewall issues. For RealPlayer allow UDP traffic on port 554 which is the default port for the protocol RTSP that Real uses. You can also use HTTP over port 8080. Note: Some firewalls are configured to only allow HTTP traffic. To reconfigure RealPlayer to use HTTP only, click here.
