I honestly thought this was a 'How do I install Windows 7 on my PS3?' thread.

Glad you figured it out though. Firewalls always can be so picky!

Yes burtie, I found this to be my issue as well. While TVersity was set to be allowed in the firewall, it was set ONLY for Public and NOT "Home/Work(Private)...seemed kind of backwards to me.

After allowing this access in both zones, I've been able to connect via xbox and ps3.

cheers!
