    Hi,
    I have ESS version 3.0.672.0 and just installed PlayOn's software to stream Hulu to my Nintendo Wii. See information in this thread, similar problem: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=235624
    I can't seem to find a way to allow an exception that the firewall does not block, but I may be looking in the wrong place. If I do nothing to ESS settings or disable ESS, the PlayOn Settings show "Not Found" under the Current Running status of the PlayOn Media Server. Their help suggests that firewalls are a frequent cause of this. When I disable the ESS firewall, the server will run and I can find my PC through the Wii and stream from it fine.

    Surely there is a way for me to adjust the firewall for this so I do not have to change to some other product besides ESET or leave my firewall off?

    Try installing ESS 4.0.467 and switching the firewall to learning mode.
