In addition to automatically discovering network media devices that implement the DMS role on the network, Windows 7 also performs the DMS role through the Windows Media Player NSS. Users can enable this functionality from the Advanced Sharing Settings in Control Panel or in Windows Media Player from the Share menu. Both methods open Share with Media Devices in Control Panel, which enables users to configure media sharing, including the ability to allow or block users and devices from accessing the shared media library. Figures 5 and 6 show the Share menu in Windows Media Player and the resultant Control Panel, which provides the option to enable sharing with media devices.
