Open mDNS and presence/tcp ports in your firewall.

I have disabled the firewall, so this can not be the problem.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2008-12-13 19:42:53 EST
You might also have to restart avahi after the firewall is opened (not sure).  Also, is your local network allowing multicast traffic?  The other users likely must have their firewall ports open as well.

I have updated my Fedora via yum update (packagekit bug) after this all works fine again. thanks anyway.
