Windows Media Player 9 Internet Access

  StevieB77 01:02 10 Feb 2003

When I try and open Media Guide in Media Player 9 a message appears saying 'Access denied by access control list'. How can I prevent this from happening and get access to the internet via the Media Player.

Do you have it blocked via a firewall?

Or if you have IE installed, try setting options to default - it may have something to do with a proxy server.

Thanks for the advice but still no luck! I have only gone onto AOL broadband in the last couple of days and I don't think it has worked since then, not to sure how relevant that is!

Try going into the options in Media Player, then into Network and then into Configure. In there tell it to autodetect proxy settings.

If that does not work, tell it not to use a proxy server and see how it goes.
