Not sure where to look next - PS3 Never shows media server

Postby tim_ps3 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 1:28 am

Hi Everyone,

I have been a user of ps3mediaserver since 2010 with multiple deployments, Ubuntu Fedora / FreeBSD but I recently moved and a lot of variables have changed in the fact that both my router changed (As I changed Internet providers) and my computer.

I am on a Gentoo machine and everything dependency wise went pretty smoothly.

The issue I am having is that the PS3 does not register the PS3 Media Server is running.

I have checked that port 5001 is running, which it is as from any machine I can reach port 5001

Code: Select all
[tims@Arch ~]$ telnet 192.168.2.200 5001
Trying 192.168.2.200...
Connected to 192.168.2.200.
Escape character is '^]'.


I checked by debug file

Re: Not sure where to look next - PS3 Never shows media serv

Postby tim_ps3 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 2:55 am

I have also tried

- Reducing the values within my PMS.conf to see if any settings is interfering with the system. (This did not repair the issue)
- Using other known services, such-as a windows built in. (This works)

So this narrows this down to either the router (probably not) or the Gentoo box, which I am trying to investigate but the PS3 can be pinged:

Code: Select all
Gentoo pms-linux-1.50.1 # ping 192.168.2.17
PING 192.168.2.17 (192.168.2.17) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.2.17: icmp_req=1 ttl=255 time=12.9 ms

Zero errors within the debug.log but the PS3 cannot find

Postby tim_ps3 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 3:07 am

Hi,

I have installed PS3 media server on my Gentoo box, although the debug log is not showing any errors, the PS3 is not showing the PS3 logo under available media servers.

What I have tried:

- Reviewed debug.log, which does not display any issues PS3 Media Server starts successfully
- Pinged the PS3 from the server - this was also successful
- Using telnet confirmed the port is not blocked on the local network
- Reduced the variables within the PMS.conf to confirm the settings where not interfering in some manner. (No change)
- Tested another known working server, windows media server (works) but will not complete the entire job I am looking for.

So at this stage I am actually not sure where to proceed, the system on both sides appear to be setup as they should be.
