WHS Media center connector BAD Password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    The other day my WHS updated with PP2 which adds the ability to media connect, WHS advises you to run the "Windows Media Center Connector setup" from the start menu which I did and this asks for a password "to log on to the WHS" and so far I have entered all passwords used on the WHS but it still reports "The password is incorrect" does anyone have any ideas why and how to resolve.

  • If you have third party firewall installed it could be this blocking the communication. You could try enabling the Windows firewall and (temporarily) disable the third party firewall.

    If the client is Windows 7 beta or RC please check out this thread. Another Win7 issue is described in PP2 release documentation
