How UPnP failed me and Bonjour for Windows saved me. Today I am working in an Windows XP environment entirely. Not just a Mac found. However, it was Apple software that kept me. We just got a new Axis Q1755 network camera. It supports Universal Plug-and-play or UPnP.
It also supports Bonjour which it turns out is very lucky for me. The camera was linked by me to our network. At that true point, as a UPnP device it is supposed to show through to my OR WINDOWS 7 computer inside My Network Places. I opened up My Network Places, and it wasn’t there.
I found an article that said Windows Firewall can interfere with UPnP devices. However, since I’m on an internal network, I’ve my Firewall turned off. I came across another article that pointed out that by default OR WINDOWS 7 might possibly not have all the needed UPnP software installed. Add or Remove Programs.
I clicked the Add/Remove Windows Components button. I clicked Networking Services. Then I clicked Details… I saw that UPnP INTERFACE was not examined, so it was examined by me to set up it. Clicked OK, then Next, then Finish which installed the UPnP components. Opened My Network Places again, but nothing still. I found just one more article having said that I would need to enable the UPnP discovery service.
