It is recommended you use the internet discovery service if you plan on accessing Jamcast remotely over a 3G network (or from a remote LAN). This service utilizes your Jamcast login. If you prefer to use DNS or will not be accessing your library remotely, you can disable internet discovery services.

Enable Android authorization when remote access is enabled, this ensures that only devices that only authorized devices can connect to Jamcast. Security does not apply to LAN-connected devices.

- enable auto-authorization and establish a LAN connection from the Android device to the Jamcast server to authorize it automatically

- from the Devices tab, right-click to allow/disallow remote access for a particular device
