Need Help Enabling Media Sharing...

Hi, im trying to enable Media Sharing on my network using Windows Media Player 11. Microsoft says that these ports need to be ublocked for it to work:

1900
UDP
local subnet only

2869
TCP
local subnet only

10243
TCP
local subnet only

10280-10284
UDP
local subnet only

However I am a noob to Comodo and i cant find anywhere to unblock ports, i tried defining WMP 11 as a trusted application but that doesnt work either. Im using Windows XP SP3 and Comodo Firewall 3.0.25.378.

Bumping

Can anyone please help?

Josh

Media Sharing worked before i installed Comodo Firewall so i uninstalled Comodo to see what would happen and followed the other uninstalll directions on forum (to clear registry etc) and i still cant use Media Sharing!!!

It has somehow permanently blocked ports or something, its getting really annoying because i cant share with my Xbox 360 or other pcs on the network like i used to be able to.

Bullet.

Sorry for the delay- There are alot of topics & posts to control.

I will get someone ASAP.

First of all, if you haven’t, set your PC to use a static IP.

Go to FirewallAdvancedNetwork Security PolicyApplication Rules.

Add these rules for svchost.exe:

Action: Allow
Protocol: UDP
Direction: In
Source Address: Any
Destination Address: Your static IP
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 1900

Action: Allow
Protocol: TCP
Direction: In
Source Address: Any
Destination Address: Your static IP
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 2869

Action: Allow
Protocol: UDP
Direction: Out
Source Address: Your static IP
Destination Address: Any
Source Port: 1900
Destination Port: Any

Add these rules for wmpnetwk.exe:

Action: Allow
Protocol: UDP
Direction: In
Source Address: Any
Destination Address: Your static IP
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 10280-10284

Action: Allow
Protocol: TCP
Direction: In
Source Address: Any
Destination Address: Your static IP
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 10243

Action: Allow
Protocol: UDP
Direction: Out
Source Address: Your static IP
Destination Address: Any
Source Port: 10280-10284
Destination Port: Any

Now go to FirewallCommon TasksMy Port Sets, and add a new one named Media Sharing.
Add the following ports:
1900
2869
10280-10284
10243

Go to the global rules, and add this rule (NOTE: Place it at the top):

Action: Allow
Protocol: TCP or UDP
Direction: In
Source Address: Any
Destination Address: Your static IP
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: (A set of ports) Media Sharing

If it doesn’t work, please post a screenshot of your firewall events.

It didn’t work, and there are no firewall events so i didn’t take a screenshot.

Ill explain a bit more, I go into Windows Media Player, and click the arrow under Library and click Media Sharing, i then check ‘Share my Media’ and click ‘ok’ nothing happens for about 20 seconds and the same window is showing asking me wether i want to share my media, the same thing keeps happening whenever i click ok. The other pcs can media share fine between each other its only mine that is having issues.
