    Question XBOX issues. How to allow UPnP Discovery

    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security Suite - Ver.
    No other Security software other than Windows'
    Windows Vista 64bit Home Premium
    HP Desktop - a6750f
    came with Norton Inter. Security pre-installed, starting about 2-weeks ago:
    Uninstalled Norton via "Norton Removal Tool", then within 3-days:
    Installed/Uninstalled Z/A Free Firewall and AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011;
    Installed/Uninstalled (clean) Z/A Internet Security Suite
    Currently Installed - Z/A Extreme Security Suite

    How are you suppose to configure Z/A firewall to "allow UPnP discovery"?. That is part of the error message I keep getting when I have tried to connect my Xbox 360 to my Desktop's Window Media Center as an "Extender" (and the Xbox wouldn't list my computer either). While using the Norton I had no issues the problem started after uninstalling the Norton.

    I don't think ZA officially support "desktop windows media extender", for the rest a simple search could have lead you to this:

    Thats correct. ZoneAlarm will work ok with media center on Win 7 but the extender features has never been test with. Unfortunately we don't have xbox 360's to test with.

    You could try experimenting by lowering security levels to see if you can get it to work that way.

    ZoneAlarm does not have a feature/function to allow UPnp Discovery specifically.
