Problem with PS3 Media Manager

Hi, since i upgraded to 11.4 i can’t connect to my xbox anymore.
It seems that port 5001 is not open. Not sure why, because before it was with 11.3.
And i never had to include it in the firewall setting.
Does anyone know how i can fix this and if something changed with 11.4?
I run 11.4 (64) with KDE.

Thanks

p.s. i actually disabled the firewall too and did not work either. I reseted the router too, but still nothing going on. mm…

Maybe AppArmour problem. Did You try disabling it or use the profile actualization wizard ?

Best regards,
Greg

No, never touched AppArmor.
I will check that as well.

What makes me wonder is, that before i upgraded this worked fine. Now i can connect to the xbox anymore.
I will go step by step. Reinstall the software, reset the router etc…

Well this is the case for example with samba. Something changed in the apparmour profiles and in 11.4 it doesn’t work out of the box whereas in 11.3 it just worked.

Best regards,
Greg

I don’t know…
I need to have port 5001 open, but everytime i include that port in the firewall it says no ports open.
With AppArmor i have no idea really.
If i ping the xbox (10.0.0.2) i get no response. Even if i shut down the firewall, it stays the same.
Is there a readme what got changed from 11.3 to 11.4 regarding networking?

Then I guess it’s rather a network problem. Please paste your routing table and ifconfig here.

Best regards,
Greg

I hope this helps. I wasted now so much time arrgg…

Thanks for the help.

So it looks like an IP address conflict. Are You sure you’ve got 10.0.0.2 on Xbox ? because You sure have this IP on openSUSE :slight_smile: and You need a unique IP for everything (when not using NAT) as the golden rule of IP addressing :stuck_out_tongue:

Best regards,
Greg

No, the xbox is 10.0.0.3
Oh, i just tried it with windows on the same machine. And i can’t connect from there either. Can it be then that my router (for whatever reason) is blocking a port?

I just need to add something.
The Xbox has access to the internet, so no problem there. The pc has access to the internet also.
The only thing that does not work (Linux/Windows) is that there is no communication between PC and XBox. For some reason this was working under 11.3 and i think i did not add anything special in the firewall at the time, besides the ip.
AppArmor i never touched at all.
Now after i upgraded i have that problem and it drives me nuts. Another problem is, that i don’t really grasp the problem and therefore can not isolate the issue.
I tried to reset the router, turned off the firewall in the OS but nothing changed. In my understanding, if i turn off the security within the OS it should enable to let the units connect to each other.
Now, if i am correct the pc has 10.0.0.2 at the moment and the xbox (after checking the settings there) is 10.0.0.3.
If i start the PSM program it shows this in the trace.

So no error there, but also no connection between PC and Xbox.
It seems that i need to isolate the culbrit. Either its the system (which i doubt) or it is the router.
I have a Netgear WGT-624v3 router. Not the best, but cheap.

Btw, is there a program or command with that i can see if an error occurs if i start PSM and no connection is made?
I am not that much firm with networking really.

Thanks again

Lets clear something up. Do You connect to Xobx from your PC’s or does Xbox connects to them ? (I mean which is the server in this situation) because from the trace You’ve attached it looks like the openSUSE PC is the server and it should be seen in XMB (I’ve got no idea how XBM or PS3 Media Server works so please explain, I do own an Xbox myself and I can check this at home myself).

I very much doubt it that it’s your routers fault as those tend to act as a switch on the inside side which knows nothing of IP’s and ports but it won’t hurt to check that as well. Enable firewall logging on the router try to connect and check the logs right after. Look for anything that has 10.0.0.3 in source or destination. You can do the same on openSUSE on Windows firewall. You have to enable logging of dropped packets but as You said You tried disabling firewall on openSUSE and it didn’t help.

Another thing that comes to my mind is maybe You had some Xbox upgrades lately ? I mean it needs to download some patches sometimes to connect to Xbox Live so maybe this patch broke something ?

Another thing is to set a static DHCP for your Xbox so that it will make debugging easier. I guess your router acts as your DHCP server so You have to set it up there. Most likely You will need the Xbox MAC address in order to create this rule.

Last but not least get wireshark and sniff for anything that has the Xbox source or destination IP address to get a better grasp of what actually happening. When in doubt post the logs wireshark traces or whatever here and I’ll try to help You out.

Best regards,
Greg

First off, thats a good plan :slight_smile:

Second, yes the PC is the host and the Xbox is the servant.
I like PSM since it runs on Java and its really easy to setup. That is, till you run into the trouble i have right now.
Also, yes. The Xbox had a recent update. Not sure what changed, but it has to do with the Kintek or whatever it called.
I blamed the router mainly because of logic. If i can not connect under either Linux nor Windows and without firewall, then the firewall can not be the problem. But you are right, it can be also the Xbox itself.
I feel to buy a different device for my movie needs. Like Roku or well…

I will check the traces with the programs you mentioned and will post it here after i have a log.

Thanks again.

That’s good. I think a wireshark scan on openSUSE will reveal the problem.

Best regards,
Greg

Ok, i tried with wireshark. But i don’t see the xbox with 10.0.0.3 in it.

I recorded it after starting the application and closing. Needed to shorten a little for the forum.

Hi
Have you allowed port UDP 1900 in the ‘Advanced’ section of the firewall ->allowed services?

The OP said he previously tried with firewall disabled and according to the description the Xbox’s IP is different form 10.0.0.2 so I’m confused now. JoergJaeger please tell us which device has got which IP address or set up the DHCP server to assign always the same IP to Xbox and tell us what it is :slight_smile:

Best regards,
Greg

Ok, 10.0.0.2 is the computer (if i am right) and 10.0.0.3 would be the xbox.

I checked within the router and both devices show up.

Attached Devices

 
#	IP Address	Device Name	MAC Address
1	10.0.0.2	--	00:1d:7d:ab:24:e6
2	10.0.0.3	--	00:22:48:27:a2:e8

In the firewall i added the 10.0.0.3 in the custom rules so that i get traffic to it. That was all what i did last time before the upgrade.
Gee, networking can be really a sad thing.

Ok, its solved for now.
First, i tried a different software. I choose Twonky which is payware. But, it does work.
I still have to figure out why PS3 Media Manager does not work anymore, but thats for a different forum.

Lastly, i like to thank everyone for helping. btw. PS3 Media Manager is a nice piece of software. Doesn’t clutter with libs, is setup in no time and transcodes everything on the fly. Sadly, i can’t use it right now.

I have ps3 media server running fine on 11.4
The major downside is the firewall is disabled to do this.
I can’t quite figure out how to set a rule to allow it in the firewall.
(In case anyone is worried I’m behind a hardware firewall so quite safe!)
If anyone can point me to a how to for the rules it would be appreciated!
