Upgrade Satellite feed: Setting it up on your Windows Dedicated Server

We recently introduced the Satellite feed upgrade which allows you to receive transponder signals on your Dedicated Server via the so called SAT>IP protocol. In this tutorial, we want to show you how to configure the Satellite feed on your Dedicated Server.

After you have received the e-mail containing the IP addresses you are ready to start the setup on your machine.

Important: All IP addresses used in this tutorial are examples! Please use for the configuration of your server only the data provided in the e-mail.

First of all you need to set up your network configuration.

1. Connect to your server by using RDP

2. Navigate to your network adapters and right click on the corresponding interface, select "properties"

Important: The upgrade comes with an additional network interface, do not change your already existing NIC or your server will not be accessible anymore!

3. Select the TCP/IPv4 protocol and click on "properties"

2

4. Now set up your IP address which was sent to you via e-mail.

In this tutorial we use 10.139.133.137 as an example.
Your IP address will not be the same as above, please read carefully the information sent to you via e-mail.

5. You need to add a route in Windows, open your Command Prompt as "Administrator" and type the following:

route print -4

The Command Prompt can be started via "Start" -> "Execute" -> "cmd.exe", alternately the "Execute" dialogue can be opened by hitting "Windows-Logo-Key +R"

On top you will see your adapters, you need to check which adapter was just configured for SAT>IP.

In this example the adapter got ID 19, you will probably have another ID - check the descriptions to find the proper ID.

4

Once you have figured out your ID you are ready to create the route.

route add 10.139.133.0 mask 255.255.255.240 10.139.133.1 if <Your interface ID> -p

e.g.

route add 10.139.133.0 mask 255.255.255.240 10.139.133.1 if 19 -p

6. Check if the connection was set up properly

The IP of the SAT>IP Server was also sent to you in your e-mail, in this guide 10.139.133.2 serves as an example.

Open the Command Prompt and check if the server replies to "ping":

ping -t 10.139.133.2

If the SAT>IP Server does not reply, we will provide some further assistance on setting it up properly, just contact our support team.

7. Install third party software to take advantage of SAT>IP

Software which is working with SAT>IP can be found here: http://www.satip.info/products/Software

In our tutorial we will use "DVBViewer", but any other SAT>IP-capable software can be used.

5

After installing the application navigate to "settings" and enter the IP address of the SAT>IP server.

Now click on "Navigate to configuration directory" and edit the network.ini, you need to insert the SAT>IP server's IP address, which was also provided to you in your e-mail:

[RTSP Network Device]
DVBServerIP=10.139.133.2

6

The setup is finished, save your configuration and restart the application. Now you should be able to watch TV on your Dedicated Server.

New upgrade available: Satellite feed

From now on we offer you another upgrade for all of our dedicated servers and colocation solutions at our data center in Nuremberg: The satellite feed.

With this feature,  you will be able to receive feeds of two satellites (in HD) on your server: Astra 19.2°E and Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0°E.
Here, we use an additional network card to send the signal to your server via Ethernet, where you can then process it further. Consequently, your standard uplink is by no means restrained by the signal traffic, thus you may use it at the maximum speed.
You are free to switch between Astra and Hot Bird, although you can not receive both signals at the same time. In order to get them both simultaneously, simply order the upgrade twice!
Just like with a regular tuner, you can receive one channel at a time. You can switch between channels, of course. If you would like to receive more than one channel simultaneously, you can simply order this upgrade multiple times. For each upgrade, you will be able to receive one simultaneous channel. Should you have multiple upgrades of this type, you can receive channels of both Astra and Hot Bird at the same time, of course.

The price for the upgrade is set at only 39.99€/month, no setup fee is charged. Not only do we provide all the necessary hardware but of course we also take care of the technical implementation. Simply select the upgrade in the "Services and upgrades" part of the "Customize & Order" section of our servers- and colocation overview

In case you are an existing customers already, you can order this upgrade as well as long as your server is located at our data center in Nuremberg. An order can be placed via e-mail.

All things considered: It never has been easier to use a satellite feed on your server!
