Can NIS firewall be configured to allow DLNA traffic?

I see that there have been a number of threads regarding this topic posted back in 2011. I was wondering whether the follwoing product limitation (deficiency/error) has been resolved. Specifically I want to access a DLNA complainat media server running on win 7 (or 8.1) from a DLNA compliant Panasonic TV. Earlier posts stated that NIS firewall blocks DLNA traffic and this is still the case with the latest version of Norton. (I'm running win 7 /  NIS 2014 / media player / serviio). If I stop the "smart firewall" the TV can see the media server and access video / jpg and mp3 files. As soon as I re-enable the firewall the  TV can't detect it. The TV can detect media on a DLNA compliant router's USB.

I tried asking the Norton Support chat but suspect they're all sales people rather than technicans since they didn't seem to understand the issue and insisted it was a TV or ISP related issue.

So has this issue been resolve?- is there anyway to configure NIS to allow DLNA? At present I'm going to remove NIS from one of my PC's and install another AV program and then cionsider whether to continue with NIS on my other computers..

Re: Can NIS firewall be configured to allow DLNA traffic?

Hi agvodz,
Adding an exception for the server program in the firewall will help you in that case.
To add the program exception in firewall rules,
Open NIS gui > Settings > Network tab > Smart Firewall > click configure next to Program Rules > search for your program. If not found click add, else click modify.

If Add is clicked, locate your program > Open >select 'allow always' or 'manual configure'
If your program is already listed, you must set the rule permission to 'allow' not auto.

Re: Can NIS firewall be configured to allow DLNA traffic?

Have checked the NIS firewall rules and these already contain rules for some  media centre programs which were set to "allow". 

I added all the other media centre programs just in case. This made no difference. 

I checked the firewall history but this doesn't show any rejections or errors.

So I ask the question has anyone actually managed to successfully connect to a DLNA device from a Windows PC running NIS? If so what changes if any were required. 

Thanks in advance

Hi,
Thanks for update.
An year ago, I had configured a PC (dont know if it had dlna) and an Android samsung galaxy phone using Samsung all share app on both devices.
The pc could detect the device and vice versa and stream the contents after some tweaking in firewall. Thought it was the firewall rules, thats why I asked you to configure the application in firewall rules.
Does turning off smart firewall help you?
(right click on nis icon in tray notification area > select disable smart firewall)

Re: Can NIS firewall be configured to allow DLNA traffic?

The issue is definately with NIS firewall. If I turn off fthe smart firewall then the TV sees the DLNA server on the PC. 

Since I have several PCs I've removed NIS and installed AVAST which allows DLNa traffic .

As I said this issue was raised in 2011 and I was hoping that Norton had solved it. 

As an experiment I've just  installed a DLNA client on my iPAD and that can access the PC with Avast but not the one with NIS.

Hi,
If you are interested in finding a way out using nis itself, unless a symantec employee join this thread, it will be a lot of trial and error steps.
May be a Guru can flag this to appropriate person.
But if you want to try trial and error, let us know that too.

You never stated the trust level given to the TV.

In the Network security map you want it set to full trust, that in addition to setting the media serving programs to allow should work.

Re: Can NIS firewall be configured to allow DLNA traffic?

After some further experimentation I have finally got the Panasonic TV to access media from the laptop via DLNA.

A useful tool to use in these circumstances is UPnP Inspector (free) which runs on windows (and Ubantu?). I installed this on both my PC (Win7, Avast AV + windows firewall, serviio media server) and my laptop (win8.1, Windows media centre and NIS 2014).

 

In summary I ascertained that on the laptop neither MS media product was being detected as DLNA servers, and so the root cause of the problem rather than NIS. Removed WMC and installed serviio and the DLNA server was recognised by the tool and in turn by the TV and other DLNA clients. 

If I get time I should reset everything and try again just to check the above but on the PC which interestingly didn't have media centre.

BTW The TV was given FULL TRUST.

Thanks to those who tried to help.

Re: Can NIS firewall be configured to allow DLNA traffic?

Hi,
Its nice that you have found a workaround.
I searched my firewall rules and couldn't find a rule related to UPnP in nis firewall but there were some rules in windows firewall, so I suspected it was something to do with the inbound and outbound rules of nis firewall.
So only I asked this to be notified to concerned persons.
Lets hope for good results in PC too..
