OSX's Screen Sharing feature conflicts with PS3 Media Server

Postby Diranged » Thu Nov 05, 2009 12:22 am

In OSX when you enable the Screen Sharing feature (of which, is a mandatory feature for me to use), it opens up port 5900 for access. This port is not changeable.

Unfortunately this causes PS3 Media Server to spam the system.log file with these errors:

Any chance there's an option somewhere that allows me to change the port from 5900 to something else?

Sorry, ignore this. I had read another thread somewhere indicating that PMS was lookign for port 5900. It's not (after looking at the source code). Instead, its hard set to look at port 1900 for UPNP access. I had the MusicIP mixer running which also opens up port 1900, causing the conflict. Right now, I can start up PMS first and start MusicIP second -- and that works. It would be nice though if you could set the port as an option for PMS.

Uh...you can. It's under the General Configuration tab.
