Hey Everyone,
I followed this guide (linked below) and it worked like a charm (at first). But after awhile I got an error message saying something about my firewall possibly might be blocking the connection, which doesn't make since to me because it was working and streaming my movies just fine.... Can someone please help me figure out the problem and how I can fix it?

THANKS!

Could you post the actual error. If its being blocked by your firewall you could either add an exception to your firewall to let it through or maybe try using another port for ushare. Also the guide you used is very old. I i have ushare and i started mine with this guide (http://linuxexpresso.wordpress.com/2011/01/02/howto-ubuntu-upnp-server-to-xbox-360/) which is much more up to date.

I would try to convince you not use that guide. It does not tell you how to set it up to run on startup. Also the Upnp server, Ushare, is not being developed many more. http://ushare.geexbox.org/#Latest_News
There are other UPnP media servers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_UPnP_AV_media_servers

Maybe MediaTomb https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MediaTomb
