    I just switched to using windows firewall from the AVG one. Now I'm stuck on "please wait" for streambaby and pytivo wont find my shares. Where/what program to allow an exception for so that these go through?

    I can still push using the 'config' for pytivo from the pc.

    Is a firewall even necessary when behind a router?

    You need to add TCP and UDP ports in the firewall settings.

    TCP: 37, 80, 443, 5005, 5222, 5223, 7287, 7288, 8000, 8080-8089
    UDP: 37, 123

    I don't think those ports have anything to do with pyTivo or Streambaby. I believe Windows Firewall allows setting exceptions for application names, so setting an exception for both java.exe and python.exe may be needed.

    I added exceptions for java and python, still no go. I added a rule for tcp and udp 7290 and all is good so far.:up:

    pyTivo wants 9032, 5353 and 2190. I have no idea what 7290 is.

    And no, a firewall is not necessary behind a NAT router. Unless you expect to be attacked from a system on your own LAN.

    You could try re installing streambaby and pytivo. During the install process windows firewall usually picks up on what ports need to be opened. It then requests that you confirm.
