But is that less secure than using the local system account? I read in the NT Wrapper help file something about the password being not very securely encrypted.

I think you shouldn't enter the password in the NT wrapper dialog but in service setting dialog (in control panel). I'm not sure how well that is encrypted.

Thanks for your help.

I have deleted the service i created in NT wrapper, recreated it again using the default system account and then changed the account to mine under Windows Services.

Works great in Windows Home Server, I now have all my media accessible via my media centre, xbox extender, iMac and now iPhone.

PS: Now if we can just get playback support for Windows7 recorded TV.

Hi, sorry to ask this again, but i have followed all the previos notes to create the service, but using the system account i can connect to the server from the iphone but the media/folder list is empty, but using the administrator account which i can run the server when logged on does not allow iphone to connect or see the server.

The server is running on windoes 2003 server, can someone please help as this is driving me round the bend.

Many thanks

Paul

Hi,

I am no expert but I'll try to help.

When I tried using the system account I got the same problem in that there is no way to configure it, so there will be no folders when connected via the iphone.

I didn't use the administrator account but instead used my normal user account that I log in with.

I went back and checked my settings.

I am very sorry I was wrong I did use Administrator.


As far as I can remember I installed Bonjour, Air Video and NT Wrapper.
I then created the service in NT wrapper all default except enabled the tick box "Restart Application" I may have also enables auto startup.
I then went into the services control panel and changed the account from system to Administrator.
With the service stopped I started Video Server interactively and configured it. Turned off "Start at login", enabled a password and added the folders.
I then stopped and exited it and started the NT service.
I can't remember if I had to change any firewall settings but I currently do have an exception for airvideoserver.exe and bonjour

Damn it has been working fine until now.


I checked my event log and I have these:-

PID:5852 Terminated by NTWR C:\Program Files\AirVideoServer\AirVideoServer.exe ExitCode:0


I haven't rebooted for a while and I noticed that a windows update occurred on the 8th.

I think it may be a Bonjour problem.

If I click the + to add the server is not listed.

Try pairing it using server pin then. Bonjour doesn't work well with some networks. Enable Access from internet in remote tab and disable automatic port mapping (you don't need it to connect over WiFi).

That looks like a firewall problem to me. Have you tried to follow the steps from troubleshooting?

If so, which one fails?

That's probably because the service is started under different user account than the one you are logged in. I think it has been discussed in this thread already. You need to go to Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services, select Air Video Server service, go to Service Properties - Log on tab, chose "This account" instead of Local System account, click Browse and enter your user account name and password.
