    We have a web server that is in our DMZ that is service some mp4 files that for users on our corporate network is service fine .. but when accessing these files from the public the mp4 files are not server.  We are seeing these kind of errors

    2014-09-03 15:02:19 x.x.x.x GET /resources/1+Welcome-Broadband+High.mp4 - 80 - x.x.x.x Mozilla/5.0+(Windows+NT+5.1)+AppleWebKit/537.36+(KHTML,+like+Gecko)+Chrome/36.0.1985.143+Safari/537.36 http://MySite/WelcomeVideo.html 206 0 995 968

    On mobile networks it appears to just timeout.

    We have ports 80 and 443 open from public internet to the dmz server.  And All ports open from corp intranet to dmz

    Any ideas on where I should start looking at this from.  I haven't seen this kind of problem before.  All other files (pdfs, zip files, txt documents that are served) work fine .. It just seems to be .mp4/.mp3/.wma files

    Any help is appreciated.

    About 206 error,  status code of 206 is a response to a request for part of a document. This is used by advanced caching tools, when a user agent requests only a small part of a page, and just that section is returned.

    After speaking to my network guys .. they did implement a new firewall that not only restricted by port (which was fine) but by stream, and apparently video streams were denied.

    Thank you for all responses!
