The remote firefly is accessed via internet (daap or rsp). The Avahi is running on the local side and advertises the service with its remote address. I don’t see any reason for the multicast to be transmitted to the remote side, since the advertisement takes place on the local end. Besides that – in case of general communication problems the Rendezvous Proxy setup would not have worked either. Same is true for accessing the remote server with iTunes.
