Not connecting to PS3 when using a new version

I've been happily using 1.0.4 of the PS3MS, however, when upgrading to the latest version, the PS3 is not detcted. I just get a big circular cross saying it couldn't detect a PS3.

I've port forawrded in case it was a requirement for the new versions, but even doing that I've had no success. I've made sure that I did a clean install instead of just overwriting the files for 1.0.4. I've rebooted, installed it as a service, but it just doesn't detect the PS3. When I revert back to 1.0.4 everything works again.

computer specs: Core2Quad 2.3GHz, 4GB DDR2 800 RAM, Nvidia 9800GT, Windows Vista Ultimate using 1.10.51 PS3MS (not working) and 1.0.4 (working)
network connection: 100/1000 Gigabit ethernet

EDIT: I enabled SSDP Service, and it works now. Is it "safe" to enable this service? And why is it that 1.0.4 works without it, but 1.10.51 doesn't?

Thanks in advance

I had a similiar issue on my mac.

the fix:

Find out the BSD device name...i think that is the network card your pc is using .

In the General Config of PSM tab choose " Force networking interface:" make sure you have the same thing selected as the name of the network card

I dont know this will work for you but it did for me

Most DLNA/UPnP servers rely on SSDP. I had to have it running when I was using TVersity, I don't think PMS is any different.
I'm a man of few words. Any questions?

The latest version is my first version. I had the same issue of it saying not found. Had to leave PS3 Media Server running, then stop and restart the service manually, then the PS3 is founded!

Works everytime
