That ip address is a loop back address. In effect you're talking to yourself, creating a connection from your computer back to itself over your lan.

So no data actually leaving your system and going out into the www itself. Thus no need to be concerned!

Twonky media server is often bundled with many soho NAS systems. On those systems there is (usually) a default admin logon/password, and that can be changed twhatever (make a note of the changes in a couple of places). Also perhaps create additional user accounts - which can also full admin or not.

Are you trying to create an account as on this link:

https://my.twonky.com/register/user

or what?

Does this youtube help at all?

Very Grateful for your time,
