Connecting to Jellyfin Server with Zerotier


I’ve recently set up a Media Server using Jellyfin and have successfully setup Tailscale to connect remotely.

However, I’d like to switch to Zerotier as I much prefer opensource software. Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me, figure out why I can’t connect to port 8096. Both the host (Windows 10) and client (Android 11) can ping each other, regardless whether connected to wired/wireless/mobile networks.

Some things I’ve tried:

  • Allowed port 8096 in the firewall and ensured all relevant apps on the host machine are allowed through.
  • Ensured both are authorized
  • UPNP is enabled in my router

Unsure where to go from here… Any help is greatly appreciated.


Still attempting to figure this out on my own, but am getting nowhere…
