I'm trying to set up home sharing on Apple TV/iTunes so that I can access the library on my computer via Apple TV.

I have a Windows laptop. Windows 7, latest version of iTunes.
The wifi connection between the Apple TV and my wifi router works fine (I can rent movies from itunes/netflix with no problem.
I can't get my Apple TV to recognize my iTunes library on my laptop.
I've reviewed all the instructions here
. I think there is a problem with my firewall settings. The instructions say "Home Sharing uses TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5353 to communicate with other copies of iTunes."
What does this mean and how do I change these settings? My firewall software is Kaspersky 2010.
