McAfee Anti-Virus and Windows Media Player 11

Mon Aug 03, 2009 6:21 pm

The setup for me was pretty easy, except the manual was outdated and did not have directions for WM11. You can access Media Sharing in WM11 by Selecting Library > Media Sharing. Wait a few moments and the soundbridge should also show up. Also, I had a McAfee firewall blocking access, so you will need to allow Media Sharing full access, and add the IP address of the soundbridge in McAfee by double-clicking the McAfee icon in your tray, selecting Configure > Internet & Network > Advanced > Networks > Add and adding the IP address of the soundbridge as trusted.

Hi bkoski99

You did well to sort out the firewall security for the Soundbridge, that usually defeats many trying to get it all to work together. Personally I have trusted the entire local subnet on my NIS firewall to avoid having to repeat it for each device. I also recommend you assign a static IP to your Soundbridge (on the router configuration if you know how, or on the SB itself) because next time it is restarted you may well end up with a different IP.
