Reply To: Rhythmbox doesn’t see Firefly share


Unfortunately I can’t get this to work. I’m guessing it’s the avahi-daemon that is causing the problem.

This morning it streamed for 1.5 hours succesfully from my Ubuntu box to my mac but then dropped and now the mac refuses to see it. This tells me it is not a firewall or mt-daapd.conf problem, correct???

ip tables:

sudo cat /etc/firestarter/user-pre
$IPT -A INPUT -p udp –dport 5353 -d -j ACCEPT
$IPT -A OUTPUT -p udp –dport 5353 -d -j ACCEPT

I also have allowed the IP address of my mac, and opened 3689 and 5353 to everyone.

One thing I notice is that on the firefly page (which I can access from my mac) the Bonjor server is listed as stopped.

ARRGGGFHH!H!!! How do I find out the cause of my problem and fix this?
