What setting do you need to enable on Pace 5168N to allow Home Sharing function with Apple TV?

The Apple TV is able to connect to the internet just fine since I can watch Netflix and other stations (however it has been timing out quite often lately) but I cannot get it to stream my music / videos from iTunes on my computer with Home Sharing.

I have tried all the setting Apple suggest https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT203311 but it is still not working.

Does anybody have a work around?

Hi Ryan,

I would think the most likely issues would be if you are running a VPN or if you have not set up the port forwarding on the RG.

Can you confirm that you are not using a VPN within your network (usually used to access Netflix from the US).

Also did you go into the RG and set the port forward for TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5342 to the PC where your iTunes is running from.

Other than that, not really sure why it would not be working.
