Made a new firewall rule for windows and it worked, i had probably the false Port opened previously^^
Issue is solved for me and i can enjoy this great app.

Im having this same issue. I mistakenly installed MP2 but now have gone back through and have MP1 , MPExtended and WifiRemote installed (also enabled/installed Bonjur). When using aMPdroid, I can setup my client and hit "request access to service" which invokes a prompt in MPextended and I grant access to the user. However, I cant get a connection. Using "connect remote" in ampdroid, it still gives me "Remote conenction could nto be established. Ive disabled my windows firewall as well.

@julianHD - what was the rule you added your windows firewall?
Anyone else - what can I check?

One question regarding my router - I dont need to port forward, if im only going to use internally do I ?

For those finding this thread, ive watched these youtube vids regarding ampdroid, mpextended etc

Well I feel like an idiot now, but I figured it out. Duh.... you have to have MP itself running before the remote has anything to connect to.
After all that ... it was something so simple.
So, for anyone else finding this is a check list that might help
- Media Portal 1.x installed (AND RUNNING on your target pc)
- MPExtended installed and WifiRemote installed as a plugin. Does it show up in the MP configuration section under plugins?
- For WifiRemote, is it enabled and if your using authentication, do you have your password entered there (MP plugin config section for wifiremote)
- Can you select "request access to service" and does this prompt you on your MP pc ?
- Have you tried turning your windows firewall completely off to test?

    I guys, I resume this old t3d because I can't solve remote issue.

    I'm on MePo 1.15.0 (fresh installation)
    WiFiRemote + MPExtended +Bonjiours are installed and and everytings works except the remote

    DemoClient_1.1 works fine

    I try to disable completely Win7Firewall and open router's port but the remote still not working (Remote conenction couldn't be established)

    MPEtended service log:
