    Hello All,
    I am hoping you can help me with this problem. I am running Windows
    Vista Ultimate 64. I am using a Gigabit wired connection through an
    Apple Time Capsule. I am also using Panda Internet Security 2009. I
    have searched online for the list of ports that need to be open and
    opened them. I have even called Panda and had them remotely take over
    my desktop. The technician there says it works fine at his home with
    the same set up. He could not offer me an answer. He did note that it
    was "odd" and a "microsoft problem" that in my network and sharing
    center that while Network Discovery is set to "on", the option to toggle
    it on and off is grayed out. There is the note that I could use my
    firewall program to toggle this on and off, but the Panda tech support
    said this is not normal.

    I can share media through wmp11 fine. I test all the connections via
    the XBOX 360 Elite menu and all is fine. When I try to start the WMC,
    it is stuck at "contacting." Any suggestions? And yes, I could always
    turn Panda off, but seeing as how I just paid for a year, I would prefer
    not to do that, lol.

    Thanks,

    Lance

    and if that does not help, perhaps consider replacing Panda with
    something else.
