Maybe I'm reading too much into his original post. But I gather that he's had his player firewalled forever, hence doesn't care about streaming. He just noted that upon further investigation after a failed update attempt, that streaming didn't work either. So I still think his main goal is updating, not streaming, so no solution to his streaming problem is required.
Jeffshead, is that about right, or am I way off base?
I finally found the solution. I had to allow incoming PING's on the gateway device. A while back, I reconfigured my UTM device to tighten security and that was one of the things that I had changed. I forgot about changing that setting and I did not think the Sony would require incoming PING's to function since every other device and application on my network works just fine. Everything on the Sony works again since changing that setting.
So for anyone else that can access the Internet through the Sony but cannot stream or update, check the ICMP settings on your router/gateway/firewall.
Thanks guys for the replies
