Windows 7: Can't connect to computer

Can't connect to computer

Hi, I have an app on my phone called salling clicker which can connect to my computer to control itunes and vlc remotely via WLAN

I had it working on here when I had vista on here but this is a new install of 7 and now I can't make it work. It works on my friends laptop in the same house on the network so I know it's my laptop that is the problem.

I am trying to get help on the forums but my account needs activating before I can post and it's taking a while so I though I would as you this

Are there any settings on my computer that would prevent a device from seeing it on a network.

I haven't set up any other security software on it, I have microsoft security essentials and the firewall is on but the relevant ports have been allowed.

I didn't need to do anything extra on my friends computer to make it work and I haven't messed with any networking things on here.

So any ideas guys? cheers

Ports may be blocking it.

I allowed the ports and even tried disabling the firewall altogether and security essentials but still no luck
