Seed servers not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using WinXPSP2 with all p2p required components installed but I can't contact the seed sever:

    Are seed servers alive?

    -Vahid

     

     

    netsh p2p pnrp diagnostics>ping seed Global_

    SOLICIT sent to address: [2002:4136:e382:0000:0000:0000:4136:e382]:3540.
    Destination did not respond (error 0x80980800).

     

    Here is the cloud statistic:

     

     

    netsh p2p pnrp cloud>show stat

  • Can you please check following things?

    1.     Check the Firewall setting for PNRP port which is UDP 3540.

    2.     Check the IPv6 connectivity with the Seed Server from your computer using ICMP ping. (ping -6 pnrpv2.ipv6.microsoft.com and ping -6 pnrpv21.ipv6.microsoft.com)

     

    Thanks,

  • I have already disabled Windows Firewall on my machins but I'm behind company's firewall which is out of my control. (It is not easy to convince IT guys to open a port for me.)

     

    Is there any way that I can connect two machines without using the seed servers.

    What if I use Local Link instead of Global_?

  • Hi Vahid,

    Most likely the problem is related to your corporate FW.

     

    If you put both machines in a same link then both Link Local and Global cloud will able to bootstrap. To bootstrap, Global cloud uses multiple techniques (Seed Server is one of them).

    However, it is recommended to use Link Local link for this type of application. For Global cloud, you might consider to install a Seed Server within your corporate network.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks,
