I have exactly the same problem. PMS says it has found the PS3 but the PS3 can't see PMS!
* I have the PS3 icon saying it has found the PS3
* All PS3 settings are correct as per the post that outlined them
* Port 5001 is open and listening (both (TCP and UDP)
Here is my log:

So the PS3 seems to make a request, PMS definitely sees the PS3 and sends a DISCOVER message, but for some reason PMS does not appear in XMB on the PS3? I am using version 1.04 - hope somebody can help as it is driving me nuts!
Thanks in advance.
PS to the OP - Ian - you're not using a Thompson Speedtouch (BeBox) router by any chance are you?
