Direct Connection XP to Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason I can't get a Direct Connection to establish between Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    P2P takes a long time trying and then returns PEER_CONNECTION_FAILED

     

    However, the same code running on Vista can create a Direct Connection to XP.

    It's almost instantaneous.

     

    Both PC's on the same LAN segment using a Global_ cloud provided by Teredo.  All other P2P functionality appears normal.

     

    Is there a firewall setting on Vista that needs to be adjusted?

    (P.S. How do I turn AutoSelect off in the html edit window of this viewer? Its driving me crazzyy!!)

  • I'm not sure if the firewall affects the connection problem or not, but how about trying to disable firewall using firewall.cpl and test it to narrow down the issue? Please try it to see if the firewall causes the issue or not and don't forget to enable it back for your machine safety.
