Dual WAN issues with Stream TV

Dual WAN issues with Stream TV

I have two ISPs in my house (Comcast is one) and have a load balancing dual WAN router.  The issue I'm having is that when the router routes Stream traffic out of the non-Comcast ISP, it looks to Comcast that I'm not at home so I can't watch all the TV stations.  What I want to do is ensure that all traffic that needs to go to Comcast goes out the interface connected to the Comcast gateway.

 

I can set up routes in my dual WAN router, but need to identify all the Stream traffic.  Does Stream use specific IP addresses, domain names, and/or ports?  Once I have a way to identify the traffic I can write a rule that says that everything going to those addresses, domain names and ports is routed correctly.

 

Any one know where I can get the complete list that Stream uses?

 

Thanks.

Don't have a list, but you could use wireshark to sample the traffic and look at the network conversations to create your rules.

I read elsewhere that Comcast uses a 3rd party system to verify in home (not on VPN) and in USA. It didn't say who or how.
