Hi,

have you tried adding server using Pin instead of selecting it from list? What exact error do you get?

yeah,
It's strange tried everything then tried on my other pc and it works great.

I'm running W7 64bit on the computer I'm having issues with.

The thing is I like this so much I'm thinking of duel booting this with vista - which is what is running on my other pc.

It's funny I had it working on my other pc and networked through to the vids on this pc and it still worked really well on high quality. lol

Hi,

it is probably firewall related then. Check the firewall settings on your W7 PC. Air Video should run with no problem on W7 64bit as long as the firewall isn't blocking it.

That means bonjour is not working correctly for that machine. It happens sometimes. This is what you can try:
Go to the remote tab, check "Enable Access from Internet" and uncheck "Automatically Map Port".
In the iPhone client tap "+" to add server, chose "Enter Server Pin" and enter the server pin displayed on remote tab.

It's not reachable from internet because Air Video was told not to configure the server mapping. But if it's not reachable on local network that's bigger problem. It means something prevents Air Video Server for handling incomming connections. If you browse to http://localhost:45631 on the computer running Air Video Server, do you get any response?

If you get the Air Video response that means Air Video is running and the system firewall does not block it.
If you open safari on your iPhone and navigate to http://<your-computer-local-ip>:45631 do you get any response?

In this case it's most definitely problem with your network settings. Are both your iPhone and the computer even on same local network? What is the local IP address of the computer and the local IP address of iPhone? Maybe you have the network setup in a way that devices connected through WiFi are on different subnet than devices connected through ethernet?

naw it's not that

The iphone finds the computer name when on the network but when i click on it - it just times out.

It worked on my other computer so it has to be something to do with windows 7 -> remember i connected to my other computer and open vids on this machine because they are all on the same network.

ip on this computer is 10.0.0.3 my other 10.0.0.13 ->

now I'm having trouble finding a partition tool for window 7 - I've installed two and they both have compatablity issues - grr.

I'll find one and duel boot this thing - I'm sure vista will run fine it did on the other computer - running through the same router ect

Well, the computers really are on same local network. This is rather puzzling. As last resort you can try restarting both the router and the computer running Air Video Server but it's a long shot.

The bottom line is: if http://localhost:45631 gives you the response when you try it on the computer running Air Video Server
but when you connect to http://10.0.0.3:45631 from your iPhone and get timeout it means there are either routing problems or the firewall blocks it.

I'm sorry but I'm afraid I can't really help you with this - it's closely related to your network or windows configuration.
