How to connect a Playstation 3 (PS3) console on the WLAN to the LAN for UPnP Media Server connectivity
How do I connect my Playstation 3 (PS3) console on the WLAN to my UPnP Media Server on the LAN.
- Log into your SonicWall security appliance. Go to Firewall > Multicast. Enable the Enable Multicast option. Disable the Require IGMP Membership reports for multicast data forwarding option. Select the option Enable reception of all multicast addresses. Click Apply.
- Under Network > Interfaces, Edit the LAN interface. Click on the Advanced tab. Enable the Enable Multicast Support option. Click OK. Repeat this step for the WLAN interface.
- Go to Firewall > Services. Click Add to create a new service. Configure the service as it appears below:
- Name: UPnP Media Services UDP1900 (or your own custom name)
- Protocol: UDP(17)
- Port Range: 1900-1900
- Sub Type: None
- Go to Firewall > Access Rules. Select WLAN > Multicast. Create a rule with the following settings:
- Action: Allow
- From Zone: WLAN
- To Zone: Multicast
- Service: UPnP Media Services UDP1900 (the service created in step 3)
- Source: Any
- Destination: Any
- Users Allowed: All
- Within Firewall > Access Rules, WLAN > Multicast, find the IGMP Deny rule. Edit the rule. Set the Action to Allow. Click OK.
Setup is now complete on the SonicWall.
Notes regarding Playstation 3 connectivity:
- If your Playstation 3 is already turned on, it may initially require a reboot or require that you toggle media server connectivity off, then on before they will discover the media server, or have the ability to connect to it.
- Some UPnP Media Servers may not be compatible.
- Two known-working 3rd Party UPnP Media Servers are:
- Windows: Winamp (with an additional plugin)
- Macintosh: Nullriver’s MediaLink
