    Question Port to open on firewall for DLNA?

    I'm trying to figure this out, and can't seem to find any useful information by Googling.

    I've enabled uPnP on my xbmc box so I can stream content from mobile devices, etc. Only problem is if my firewall is enabled it won't allow connections, so I need to figure out which ports to open up. It looks like it may just chose a random port but I'm not entirely sure. I turned off the firewall to see what port(s) it was using and then opened up that port (which was 60527), but the next time I tried to access it the port must have changed and I couldn't see the box on my phone. Does anybody know more about this? I have now opened up 60500 to 60599 on my local network but have no idea what range of ports are used.

    Anybody have any insight on this?

    Thanks. I already opened up those ports, but will monitor over the next few days and see what happens.

    If you are still having troubles, try this:

    f you suspect that a firewall is preventing you from communicating to Xbmc then open ports 8080, 9090 and 9777 on the Xbmc machine. Maybe first try disabling the firewall to see if that helps.
    Found here: http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-crestr...GettingStarted

    8080 is just for HTTP based remote control though if I remember correctly, e.g. if you want to use a mobile app to control XBMC
