Stanza doesn't connect with Stanza Desktop via an ad hoc connection

Hey, everyone!

I'm using Windows 7 and have been trying to connect my iPod Touch to the Stanza Desktop via ad-hoc connection but so far without results. It seems that Stanza finds the network (My computer's name appears in Stanza) but never finds any books, either it just keeps on searching or gives an error message which says something about time-out.

Have done everything exactly as written in the FAQ but nothing happens. Does anyone have the slightest idea what might be the issue here? Sorry if I left anything unclear, am more than willing to give more details if anyone needs.

I have exactly the same

I have exactly the same problem since upgrading to the new version of Stanza on my iPod Touch.

Have disconneted all antivirus/firewall products and bonjour but still no luck.

Is there a way to download the previous version of Stanza from the iTunes store so I can try reverting back to that?

Unfortunately iTunes provides

Unfortunately iTunes provides no way to revert to a previous release unless you manually save the relevant .ipa file before upgrading.

If your iTouch can see the

If your iTouch can see the PC, but isn't finding any books to share, then more than likely you've got a firewall problem. Check to make certain that
your Windows firewall is turned OFF (not just opened up) and if you've got any kind of antivirus package (Norton, TrendMicro, McAfee, etc.), verify that the firewall in that product is also turned OFF. You won't want to leave them this way for long, but if you're doing an adhoc connection you shouldn't be connected to any other networks anyway, so the risk is minimal. Bring up one book in stanza PC, check to make sure that sharing is on. You should be able to connect. If it fails, then I'd look seriously at uninstalling/reinstalling Bonjour.
