Re: Network Discovery and Media Sharing Problems-Lost me as a customer

I am having a significant problem getting a Sony Blue Ray Player model BDP-S570 to start server connection "Media Player 11" on my desktop. I am using a wired  network connection able to see Netflix and other services, no issues with networking. The Blue Ray configuration tool continues to imply there is a fire wall setting preventing the server from starting. I have opened ports as documented by Microsoft, see link below, Additionally I have added a setting for  "IPv6"  "fe80::10: to " "Home" to My Network" McAfee without any success. Help please...

Re: Network Discovery and Media Sharing Problems-Lost me as a customer

Pete (ex-brit),

I too am a 20 year IT Veteran (VCP, MCSE, 5 Exchange Certs, Citrix CNE, Cisco CNA, 6 Sig. Lean), plus I have 10 years managing McAfee Products in corporate environments.

I find your comments short-sighted and terribly defensive (in denial). Society has gone E-everything in the past 5 years, and the quality of harddrives has sunk to new lows, where 3 month drive failures are common. Therefore shared devices and backups are essential to retaining your life these days.  What is the easiet way to backup a device regularly?  It is a network, and your product is stopping that option built into every router sold in the retail market.

None of McAfee's Corporate products are as flaky as this AV/Firewall.  Sorry to point that out, but my neighbor has chosen poorly and selected your product for one of their "Vista" PC's and it is a nightmare.  I have to go over there and fix it every 3 months.  This product is NOT something I would recommend to my enemies!

BTW: My house has 3 iPads, 2 desktops, 2 laptops, Home Theatre, Allshare, 3 Smartphones, 3 iTouch, 3 Wireless AP's and 3 TV's - that is 21 connected devices that share files daily.  There is no way I'm going with McAfee, because it is a pain to manage and it is a resource pig too.

Cheers,

Richard

Thanks for the input, but that thread is mostly two years old. If you would like to open a new thread on this subject, please feel free to do so. For now though the old thread will be locked as there hasn't been anything of substance on it for a while.
