When the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®) server is not detected or the error message Cannot find DLNA server appears in the display, your DLNA-enabled unit is being prevented from locating the server on your network. This is generally caused by firewall software blocking communication on the network.

To resolve this issue, configure security software to allow a computer to function as a DLNA server , and then restart your computer.
