  • To confirm it is the OneCare firewall, try disabling it. Open OneCare, click on Change Settings and on the firewall tab, turn it off temporarily.

    If the Slingbox then works, we need to find how to allow it to stream data. It may be as simple as going to the Ports and protocols tab of the advanced firewall settings and allow the streaming media (IGMP) in that tab. Otherwise, you'll need to contact Slingbox to find out what ports need to be added to the firewall to allow it to function.

    You can also contact OneCare support for help:
