like the OP, i can see my firefly server through the web interface on all my clients. however, only the host/server pc itself can access the server share in itunes. the clients can see the firefly server in itunes, however, they never connect. it simply hangs on “Loading “Firefly Media Server.”” solution?

It’s not really resolved, but there’s a workaround – if you have the two computers on a Hamachi network, if iTunes attempts to connect through Hamachi it should work.
