New update is disrupting UPNP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
     
    I rely on UPNP to ensure that when I'm using Windows Live 2009 or any other applications that support UPNP I can avoid using port forwarding to get file transfers working etc. Ever since the most recent update of Windows Home Servers no one can view my webcam on any of my computers... is anyone else experiencing similar things to this? 3 days ago I was using WL2009 fine and then my server updated...

    Thanks,

    Kooby.

  • Please note that Windows Live Messenger 2009 is still (early-ish) beta software. It's entirely possible that some change on that side is the source of your problem, rather than the recent WHS update. I don't have a problem with my web cam (not that I actually use it; I don't see why someone would want to stare at my face while I type at them :)) using the current released software...
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
