Thanks for your fast reply but are you 100 % sure?

My brother did this with said hardware. However since folk often erect firewalls in routers, they often fail to get it to work.

Strange idea to firewall LAN communications.

Just certain ports, if I recall correctly

Otherwise, for most folks it should work with few if any issues.

Here's an example.

Your router's firewall can block many features. You have a choice here to turn it off or dig in and find out what ports and more to allow. Given the cost of support and the fact that routers in the past never did this, my vote for those that don't want to become Network Ninja Gurus is to turn it off.

With that out of the way, an example from a router I recently discussed.

See Page 43: http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/DGN2200/DGN2200_UM_3Feb11.pdf

"Your modem router has a firewall that blocks unauthorized access to your wireless network and permits authorized inbound and outbound communications. Authorized communications are established according to inbound and outbound rules. The firewall has the following two default rules. You can create custom rules to further restrict the outbound communications or more widely open the inbound communications:
• Inbound. Block all access from outside except responses to requests from the LAN side.
• Outbound. Allow all access from the LAN side to the outside"

Notice how an inbound access from WiFi is blocked? You'll want to change that.
Page 44 (using the page counter in the PDF viewer) shows the default is BLOCK ALWAYS.

This means features like access to a DLNA, NAS or other server can fail.

That's all ports blocked, right out of the box on this and other routers.

...the strangest thing is, I set up new equipment at probably two or three residential sites without having to dig around to be able to punch a hole through fort knox. Weird that I didn't have such issues with the NAS portion anyway. Rarely do i (intentionally) bother w/ anything DLNA related since it stinks to high heaven ;).

Are you sure the fact that this task involves Apple hardware isn't the issue here as well(?)

Edit: I found the following sites which list into the actual holes that may need to be punched for it to work properly.

So my view is from the times the tech fails. So in my visits or calls I get a much higher percentage of systems that do all this firewall off the LAN or WiFi. As we just set it to off because folk loathe to pay for the tech to come out and punch holes in the firewall, I can't answer your question.,

I thought what Apple did was correct and we had it all wrong.

You are thinking of this backwards

Why would Apple put up incorrect information regarding support of their own products(?)

I gave you the keys to the car, you now have the power to drive it Wink
