When I request music via My Media, I just get silence

Post by lljdavis »

Kept getting errors. Checked windows firewall. It was Ok. Noticed that localhost was working. But this wasn't allowing connection from other computers.

Here's what I did to fix it. This solution is borrowed. https://superuser.com/questions/1303093 ... me-network

On the computer with the MyMedia server installed Go to Powershell Admin

C:\>netstat -nao | findstr "52050"
If you see this, port 52050 is bound to and not (as expected).
If you take a look at the registered listeners, you’ll see the following output, which further validates the cause of the problem:

C:\>PS C:\>netsh http show iplisten
IP addresses present in the IP listen list:
This configuration will block remote TCP connections to port 52050 and blocks connection from computer to Alexa.

To solve this issue, remove the listener by issuing the following command in an administrative command prompt:

C:\>netsh http delete iplisten ipaddress=
IP address successfully deleted
Immediately after issuing this command, the WinRM service will bind to the default listener:

C:\>netstat -nao | findstr "52050"

TCP [::]:52050 [::]:0 LISTENING 4

There went 7 hours of my life that I'll never get back trying to figure this out. Hopefully helps someone else.
