Hosting PMS on Windows Server 2008 R2

Postby warrenw » Sat May 04, 2013 12:26 am

Has anyone had any luck Hosting PMS on Windows Server 2008 R2?
I have a server that I would like to host PMS on. I can't get 1.81.0 to recognize my PS3 or other DNLA devices.
First question is, does Media Player need to running on the host server? Or just Media Services?

thanks.

I am running it on Windows Home Server 2011 which is based on Windows Server 2008 R2 and it works for me as a service or run normally. i also had issues with 1.81 i had to use 1.80 for it to work properly. if you want to run it as a service first run normally and install as a service in general settings then close ps3 media server then make sure u allow firewall notifications when something is blocked then run the wrapper.exe file contained in "c:\program files (x86)\ps3 media server\win32\service" folder then allow it through firewall after that u can run it normally in services.msc.

try 1.80 here

RESOLVED
Thanks,
I got it working on 81. It was allowing Java through the windows firewall. Not running as a service quite yet. Just running minimized. This allows more options for a start. I will eventually run it as a service. It seems to work flawlessly. I really like having a powerful server running this, I am connected wired at 1Gb and the quality of fast forward, scene by scene, etc is top notch.
BTW, my operating system is actually Windows Storage Server 2008 R2. Not plain vanilla Windows Server. It offers file level DE-duplication and some real file share acceleration.
