  • About MMS
  • Microsoft Media Server (MMS) is the name of Microsoft's proprietary network streaming protocol used to transfer unicast data in Windows Media Services (previously called NetShow Services). MMS can be transported via UDP or TCP. The MMS default port is UDP/TCP 1755.
  • Microsoft deprecated MMS in favor of RTSP (TCP/UDP port 554) in 2003 with the release of the Windows Media Services 9 Series, but continued to support the MMS for some time in the interest of backwards compatibility. Support for the protocol was finally dropped in Windows Media Services 2008.
  • Note however that Microsoft still recommends using "mms://" as a "protocol rollover URL". As part of protocol rollover a Windows Media Player version 9, 10, or 11 client opening an "mms://" URL will attempt to connect first with RTSP over UDP and if that fails it will attempt RTSP over TCP. After an RTSP attempt fails, Windows Media Player versions 9 & 10 will attempt MMS over UDP, then MMS over TCP. If using Windows Media Player 11 and an RTSP attempt fails, or if using a previous version of Windows Media Player and MMS fails, a modified version of a HTTP over TCP connection will be attempted. This modified version is referred to by some third parties as MMSH, and by Microsoft as MS-WMSP (Windows Media HTTP Streaming Protocol).
  • Just a moment ago, the update went live. It could send MMS as well as possible, and it also was able to exchange photos both with another iPhone and a Samsung SPH-M330 on Sprint.
  • You will need to connect to iTunes to receive the update, it should download in seconds. After that you may have to restart your iPhone. That is ok, you will able to send an update immediately.
  • To confirm that your device is ready, go to Settings > General > About. Your carrier version should be "AT&T 5.5" , and you will need the latest iPhone 3.1 software update. Also, remember that owners of the original iPhone will miss out on the fun.
