    Ok, I recently upgraded all of my computers to Nod32 SS 3.0 to all of my computers in the house. Although after I installed the program on all of my computers most things, including general file sharing work. However, file sharing via windows media player does not work unless I turn the firewall completely off. For me, media sharing is a key part of my network and I am really missing it bad right now :p

    What I have already tried
    Attempt 1:Making sure the network is considered trusted on all of the computers
    Result: File sharing works on all the computers
    Attempt 2: Changing the firewall to Interactive mode
    Result: Waste of a half an hour
    Attempt 3: Create a custom firewall rule allowing all of the ports that the Xbox 360 troubleshooter says is necessary for media sharing to work.
    Result: My computers now see the Xbox 360 but they still can't see Windows Media Player sharing from other computers and my Xbox360 still can't see my PCs
    Attempt 4: Simply turning off the firewall
    Result: Everything works perfectly. My Xbox360 can see my PC media sharing and my PCs can see my other PCs media sharing.

    My set up is as follows

    Computer 1
    Custom Built Desktop
    Network Type: Wired
    Antivirus: Nod32 SS
    OS: Vista Ultimate X86
    • This is the computer where all of the files that I share is on.

    Computer 2
    HP Tablet PC
    Network Type: Wireless
    Antivirus: Nod32 SS
    OS: Vista Ultimate X64


    Computer 3
    Gateway Laptop
    Network Type: Wireless
    Antivirus: Nod32 SS
    OS: Vista Ultimate X86

    Computer 4
    Toshiba Laptop
    Network Type: Wireless
    Antivirus: Nod32 SS
    OS: Vista Ultimate X86

    Computer 5
    Compaq Desktop
    Network Type: Wireless
    Antivirus: Nod32 SS
    OS: Vista Ultimate X86

    Xbox 360
    Network Type: Wired

    Router
    Stanard Linksys wireless router with WPA2 personal wireless security.

    So yeah, I am really stuck on how to get all this to work without completely diasabling the firewall. Some help would be appreciate, thanks :p
