0.0.0.0 is any ip
127.0.0.1 is localhost
Must be a firewall problem.
If telnet from a remote system doesn't work try from the xbmc machine itself
so if netstat -a does NOT show
"192.168.1.5 8080 listening" (.1.5 being the IP of the XBMC machine) does that already mean there's something wrong?
Have not tried telnet yet as it's not part of the regular win7 install and my "slim" install on the xbmc machine won't let me add it later. Is putty a useable alternative for the test you recommended?
Yes putty is the one to use.
