    First of all, try switching the firewall to learning mode so that the rules are created automatically as necessary.

    Should the problem persist, enable logging of blocked connections in the IDS section of the firewall setup, reproduce the problem and post here the relevant entries from the firewall log (don't forget to disable logging when you're finished).

    Ok. I put it in learning mode. I am currently checking the "Log all blocked connections" checkmark. I will post results. I am sure it wont fix anything

    Well, 50% success during this progress. I was able to successfully connect my TVersity to my Xbox via PC.I was not able to connect WMP11 through this process. I am not aware of where the log file is and where I can obtain it.If I could get a location where the log file is I would be able to post it.

    In advanced mode, navigate to Tools -> Log files -> ESET Personal firewall log

    Please post here the relevant enties from the firewall log as you were instructed above. Do not leave logging of blocked connections enabled longer than necessary to prevent performance issues if the number of logged entries is enormous.

    Again, logging of blocked connections should be turned off immediately after you reproduce the issue. Simply copy and paste here a couple of relevant entries (5-10), the rest can be deleted from the fw log.
