What settings do I need to configue to allow my DLNA device to connect to my computer? It works fine with Mcafee firewall turned off so I know the firewall is what is preventing a connection.
My PC is running vista with latest updates.
Security Center versino 11.0, build 11.0.654
Firewall is 12.0 build 12.0.345
Thanks for any help.
Check the TCP/UDP port that you DLNA device is using then add it in your firewall's trust or whitelist ports. You might want to turn off the firewall first by the way to see if its really the firewall blocking the connection.
Onkyo txnr609 receiver. When I have Mcafee firewall turned off, I can connect and play music from my computer all day long. If Mcafee firewall is on, I can connect, but can only play music for a couple minutes before the connection is dropped.
that did not help. I'm still unable to solve this mystery. it's definitely the mcafee firewall that is causing the connection to drop....when firewall turned off there are no problems. How do I find what port to add to the allow list?
It's probably best to contact Technical Support on this matter as they have a much greater knowledge of these things. It's free via phone or online chat and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
They'll need to know what brand/model DLNA server you are using.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 25/04/12 4:29:52 EDT PM
