I’ve got a new Sony STR-ZA810ES. It supports IP control, but I can find no documentation anywhere on what ports it uses or what the setup settings mean. I nmpapped the device and see the following open ports:
PORT STATE SERVICE
80/tcp open http
5000/tcp open upnp
8008/tcp open http
8009/tcp open ajp13
10000/tcp open snet-sensor-mgmt
10001/tcp open scp-config
22222/tcp open unknown
33335/tcp open unknown
33336/tcp open unknown
50002/tcp open iiimsf
52323/tcp open unknown
54400/tcp open unknown
60151/tcp open unknown
64321/tcp open unknown
You’ll notice that manh are different from the ports that simplecontrol claims to support on sony es devices. SC says they support the str-dn810es. This is an str-za810es. They look identical but is there some difference?
Additionally there are a bunch of settings in the receiver setup that I can’t figure out what they do:
"Connection Server Settings"
There doesn’t seem to be anything I can “set”. It just says “Set whether to display connected servers” Serve name.
What are connected servers in this context???
"Auto Home Network Access Permissions"
This is set to on, but what does it do? Undocumented.
"Home Network Access Control"
There is a “controller name” for my sony bravia tv in here set to “allow” but I can’t do anything else in this screen to add simple control as a remote for the receiver.
Finally there is “registered remote devices”. It’s empty and I can’t seem to do anything to register a new device.
I contacted sony support, but they referred me to “ES support” and they don’t answer the phone. . I’ve been on hold for 50 minutes. There’s nobody there. I used to have a “premium” association with the sony brand but no more. I don’t even expect a business with customer service like that to be in business in 5 years.
Anybody know how I can register my simple control remote??
Oh last thing, I have this device wired. Does control only work over the wifi interface or something? I haven’t gotten a peep out of it on any port I’ve tried.
