Setting up DLNE Server

By setting up your computer as a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) server, you can stream media, such as music, photos or video, over your network to a DLNA-supported unit. DLNA units include certain TVs, Blu-ray Disc® (BD) players, HiFi component systems and computers. Once the DLNA server and unit are set up and connected properly, the unit can access media from your Windows Media® Player 12 library.


How to configure a location for a network connection.
Solution
When you connect your computer to a new network for the first time, you are prompted to choose a location. Three different locations are available:
  • Home network : Choose this location when you trust the people and devices on the network. You can set up a Homegroup with this location type. Network discovery is turned on which means you can see other computers on the network and other computers can see your computer.
  • Work network : This location type is configured the same as a Home network location but you cannot set up a Homegroup.
  • Public network : Choose this option when connecting to a public network, such as a coffee shop or airport, the Internet without a router or a mobile broadband connection. The Homegroup is not available and Network discovery is turned off.
To change the location of your network connection follow the procedure below:
    Network and Sharing Center
  1. Click the Start button and then click Control Panel .
  2. In the Control Panel window, click Network and Internet .
  3. In the Network and Internet window, click Network and Sharing Center .
  4. In the Network and Sharing Center window, in the View your active networks section, click the current network location.
  5. In the Set Network Location window, click the appropriate location.
    Set Network Location
  6. Click the Close button.
