by lochl / October 13, 2011 9:16 AM PDT

Hello,
I have problem with Samsung AllShare on Windows Vista 64 bit. Program run, but I can not share any folder.
I found following discuss with same symptoms without solutions and one year old:
http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-407424.html
TV Samsung UE466530.
Please, have anyone some solution?
For example:
- driver for Samsung TV
- some other free DLNA server
- etc
Thanks you.

Check your firewall and router
by Andy Holman / October 16, 2011 10:26 AM PDT

Check that your firewall on your PC is not blocking AllShare or ports used by AllShare. Also, check if your router has a built-in firewall or a UPnP server feature and turn them off. Restart your router after making changes. If that does not work, then I'd try another DLNA server to see if that works. Samsung's AllShare is pretty bad. My recommendation is Mezzmo as it works well with my Samsung TV and Blu-ray player.

Hi Andy,
thanks you for your reply. Problem is not in my router (FW etc.), it is realy in AllShare SW on Vista 64 bit. I found more discussions about it, but no solution from Samsung. And this issue is know longer than one year Sad
For example this discussion (http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-520446.html):
1) User wrote: I have problem with DLNA on Vista 64 bit.
2) Samsung wrote: Use Microsoft Windows Media Player 11.
3) User wrote: I found better SW: Serviio
4) Samsung wrote: Great news! Thanks for posting back.
My solution: I am using Serviio. Worked like a charm and it is freeware.

Get Windows 7

Let's face it, Vista 32 or 64 was an-unmitigated disaster, Windows7, on the other hand. Is vista as it should have been.

AllShare is the problem again...

In reply to: Get Windows 7

Glad you found the problem. I agree - AllShare is pretty bad. It would be great if Samsung just bundled a better DLNA server with their TVs, Blu-ray players, etc. so we did not have these problems in the first place.

You can Download their Media Server from the Samsung Site. it makes Sharing a doddle. The file is called "Samsung PC Share Manager". Download it and give it a try, It will improve things a lot.

I tried the "Samsung PC Share Manager" but in Vista 64 bit the same problem as AllShare... I can not add new folder to share - button was inactive. System wants driver for Samsung DMR TV...
In my case Samsung PC Share Manager was better than AllShare, because enable DLNA share, but only for default directory c:\PCShareManagerUpload.
But I am happy with Serviio Happy
