Running J RIver Media Center on Windows 2008

March 13, 2009

Installing J River’s Media Center 13 on the 64-bit installation of Windows 2008 that comes with Small Business Server 2008 was no problem.

However, allowing other devices and PCs to connect to it required some tweaking of the Firewall to add Media Center 13 as an exception to the firewall and also to allow connections over UDP port 1900 (evidently required for identifying UPnP devices) the port the library server runs on (2003 in my case) and the port the UPnP server runs on (2834 in my case).

I noticed that after a restart of Windows 2008, the exception for Media Center 13 needed to be checked again in the Firewall configuration. I am not sure yet whether this an anomaly, or maybe a Group Policy setting resetting that Firewall setting.
