We triple-checked and the current configuration, as discribed in the forum thread on Remote Access, is still valid and working, in Twonky Server 8.0.3.
Maybe we are looking in the wrong place and you can clarify the error condition and how to reproduce?
Thank you for responding! I have doubts that it's fixed on v8.0.3 but want to try. However, at this time, my 30 day trial version of twonkyserver 8.0.1 expired and was uninstalled. The original email to support, which created Request #23989/internal reference #-15834, was answered within 24 hours but its been 6+ weeks since I contacted you. Then again, I didn't respond to your post above very fast either.
I didn't think to provide a log file here as I was testing several versions of twonkyserver up to v8.0.1 to see if it resolved my issue but it didn't. After your reply above, I installed twonkyserver v8.0.3 but it says my trial version has expired already. We have tried the following on 2 different Linux based NAS devices and at least 4 different versions (in number) of twonky ranging from twonky v4 - v8.0.1. I know older versions of twonky(media)Server aren't supported anymore but I'm just mentioning it because each config was tested.

1) grab an (android) smartphone.
2) use default browser that says "Internet" (safari-based I think) or "Opera Mobile" browser.
3) go to the twonky ddns address:9100 and login with uid/password. (note: You should NOT be on LAN Wifi)
4) go to mobile mediabrowser
5) go to Music or Videos
6) navigate your way to and click on an Audio.mp3 or Video file. On a separate note, this is the point I got to at my friends house and her Sony TV that has opera based browser didn't respond to us clicking on the audio nor video file.
7) it gives a prompt to select: "android system" , "default media player" , Sound/Video player, or a browser "Internet"/"Opera Mobile".
Note: I want to hand the content to the stock android "Sound/Video player" depending on if one chose Music or Videos above.
8 ) It is now trying to stream the file selected but it is here that we receive an error. It will state "sorry, the player doesn't support this type of video/audio file."

> On my smartphone, logging into ddns address with browser and sending the content to the smartphone stock audio/video player is NOT fine anywhere else while off the home LAN wireless. Ex. When on 3G/4G Wireless, over a friends house and on their wired/wireless network is where twonkyserver has the issue playing the exact same content it played in the prior Note above.
This issue was exactly like a competitor dlna app that now has this issue resolved. I don't know if this helps but In that case, a developer stated to me "it is to do with security" and is an issue "with the permissions to access content externally." "The issue is that you are authenticating your connecting with your browser and then handing playback to another application which has not been authenticated and hence it fails to playback." The temp fix they first gave was to completely disable security by adding the following in the config file: LocalSubnets=127.,192.168.,172.16.-172.32.,10.,0.0.0.0-255.255.255.255. This fixed my streaming issue to the phone for the time being while they fixed the code. They have since resolved the issue with the security implemented with login/password and it appears LocalSubnets=127.,192.168.,172.16.-172.32.,10., is in the code to where i don't need to manually enter it in the dlna apps config file anymore. I know my phone is capable because it now works just fine on this NAS with a competitor dlna app with the same exact content. i'm hoping twonky can help me get streaming of audio & video working too no matter whether its to a smartphone stock audio/video player or to a tv when off the home LAN. Thanks for listening. God Bless!
