Is MediaTomb running on the same subnet as the PS3? You should also take a look at the MediaTomb documentation (http://mediatomb.cc/pages/documentation#id2535736) regarding network setup.

thanks i'll give it a go. i always thought that using same router same subnet would be set up. mind you i don't know much! and everyone else seems to have gotten it working first shot?

i always thought that using same router same subnet would be set up.

That is usually the case but if you have multiple interfaces then MediaTomb might be binding to the wrong one. It could also be the firewall but most firewalls allow all traffic on the local network.

You might want to try Cidero (http://www.cidero.com/) which is a UPnP Media Controller. It's a binary Java application so you just need to download and run it. If Cidero can't see MediaTomb then it's most likely a problem with your network.

Can you also check which NAT type you have? You can check your NAT type by doing an Internet Connection Test in the PS3 Network Settings.

subnet didn't work but i'll try couple more things from manual. eth0 is set to default and wlan0 is the only one that works, i'll play with interface settings, need to turn off ipv6 anyway.

it's type 2 nat.

i'll give cidero a try aswell.
