Can't resolve peer name on linklocal cloud RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two computers connected to the same lan (they have at least one shared block of IPv6 addresses, which is linklocal cloud on both sides, as it's listed in Cloud.GetAvailableClouds()). The first is running Server 2008 R2. It starts PeerNameRegistration with unsecured PeerName on all available clouds. Second (running Windows 7) then tries to resolve that name on LinkLocal clouds only (Resolve(name, Cloud.AllLinkLocal)). This fails quickly (nothing is found).

    Trying to resolve on all available clouds successed.

    I found what there was no PNRP firewall rule on second computer, so I added one for any program allowing UDP 3540, but that did not fix anything.

    Btw, it seems strange for me that there's no predefined rule for PNRP on Win 7 machine at all.

    I've also tried to disable firewall on both machines, but that did not help too.
