Whilst doing some test to pinpount my XBMC – Firefly connection problem, I might have found a bug in how the Firefly installer handles Vista Firefly rules:

TEST 1: VISTA with Firefly installed, windows firewall turned on
TEST 2: XP pro with firefly installed, windows firewall turned on
TEST 3: VISTA with Firefly installed, windows firewall turned off
TEST 4: XP pro with firefly installed, windows firewall turned off

When starting up firefly with -d9, test 2,3 and 4 yield result B
When starting up firefly with -d9, test 1 yields result A (so, the name doesn’t get registered in Bonjour)

IMHO this means Firefly isn’t properly registering itself in the Vista Firewall. Although when I look at the Exceptions list in the Windows Firewall Settings, both Bonjour and Firefly Media Server are registered with scope “any computer”, so that should be fine.

result A:

result B:
