  • Hi,
    could you be a bit more specific about what I need to choose?

    In the 1st section, in step 6, what file am I looking for? chrome.exe?
    in step 8, what access type do I need for Videostream to work?

    In the 2nd section in step 7, what is the program name of the application? What is the System Service Name?
    In step 9, are these ports TCP or UDP?

    Thank you!
