Help! PS3 Not found, everything seems to be working!

Postby acn160 » Fri Sep 04, 2009 11:24 pm

Hi, thanks for any help you guys can offer.

The specs:

CPU - Intel T2250 @ 1.73 GHz
Mem - 1.5gb
O/S - Windows XP Pro

running version 1.10.51 of PMS

Network is comcast high speed internet, Netgear WGR614v8 wireless router. PS3 is wired right now, PC is wireless.

The problem I'm having is that the program won't even start. I haven't ever been able to get it to find the PS3, but I don't see a problem in the traces. I have tried taking down my firewall and antivirus protection, port forwarding 80, 5001, 50000, 6000-7000, etc. I have tried forcing the IP, forcing the network interface, and even changing the port and forcing that. Every time, I have had the same result. It says in the traces Its Ready! but then it says PS3 can not be found, and nothing shows up on the PS3.

I have also tried the PS3 on wireless and wired, same result. Here is an excerpt from the debug.log.

After that it repeats the last line over and over with a different port each time.

Can anybody help me out here? Thanks so much.

Enable UPnP and Multicast on your router. Make sure your firewalls are setup correctly (allow javaw.exe and wrapper.exe, or port 5001)

Thanks for the reply. I have already allowed both of those .exe's on the windows firewall (which is the only firewall I run). Also, I have disabled everything in my router's settings that has to do with blocking, and set the NAT filtering to "open." I don't know how to open a port on the windows firewall, but maybe I should try that next? Should I have port 5001 forwarded for my computer's IP as well?

Port forwarding is for sending WAN traffic to a specific LAN IP and port based on a public port; it has nothing to do with LAN traffic. And you shouldn't have to open port 5001 if the two exe's are allowed properly in the firewall. Can you ping the PS3's IP from your PC?

Yes, I tried pinging my PS3, and I can do that fine. Just FYI, windows media player doesn't recognize my PS3 either. I decided to try that to see if it was a PMS problem or a network issue.

And you've enabled UPnP on your router per section 5-12 of your manual? ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WGR61 ... 8May08.pdf
It doesn't look like it has any Multicast traffic settings, so it shouldn't be blocking them at all.

And the obvious question, have you enabled the UPnP and media server options in the PS3 network settings?

yes...done and done. the only other options on the upnp page on the router setup are for advertisement period and time to live (hops). fwiw, this page does show that the ps3 is active.

Have you tried briefly disabling the Windows' firewall? Since WMP is effected too it's gotta be a firewall of some form.
Maybe a packet trace could help... http://www.wireshark.org/
If you do a packet trace, make sure there's no other WAN/LAN traffic as the trace gets big pretty quick.
