Finally I managed to access my remote server! Here is what I configured to make it work:
First I created the service configuration (/etc/avahi/services/firefly.service) which is pretty similar to what I published in my first post. Basically the only, but important difference is that I did not specify the official host name of the remote server. Instead I used a host name which is in the .local domain.
Firefly on musicbox
Since the musicbox.local host name has to be resolved to the server’s official IP address, I added a static host to /etc/avahi/hosts:
That’s all! Now both of my Soundbridges (A Roku and a Pinnacle) are able to connect to the remote Firefly.
