I purchased my WDTV live 3 weeks ago and still have loads of issues that I’m unable to find solutions to on this forum.
My first issue is my FSecure Firewall -
After struggling for almost 5days I managed to create a network share on my Win 7 PC that WDTV Live is able to see and play. Here’s the catch, the issue from day 1 was the firewall, I need to turn it off for WDTV live to be able to access N/W Shares.
Now before you all jump me sayng I need to create firewall exceptions, let me put up a defense rightaway. I read the forums here, I went through google results, and here is where I stand right now.
The FSecure online help says I need to create a HomeGroup rule which I have done. After creating the rule, I am able to access shared folders from other Laptops and Computers at home except WDTV live.
I tried enabling pop and log on the firewall rule, but I can;t make out jack from the logged IPs as I see 3 to 4 local IPs being logged when I power on the WDTV live and select Windows Shares. Furthermore the logs say that “Traffic was allowed through” against all these IPs.
The minute I turn off the FSecure Firewall, BAM! I am able to see all my N/W shares.
I’m all ears now…
