I have set up Firefly on my NetGear NAS Duo, opened the ports 3689 on my Buffalo router and pointed them to the NAS, and I can use the Firefly Java client to access the music locally without a problem.
But if I enter my EXTERNAL IP address (or my dyndns.org domain name) in the Java client, it simply will not connect. Here’s the error message I get:
[FireflyClientException] class java.net.ConnectException – Unable to connect (Connection refused).
I am not a programmer or a Unix jock and I don’t know what this message is trying to tell me . . . can anyone please help me??
I want to give this java applet to my friends so they can access and play my music files on their computers . . . but how???
You should check your configuration to see which port is open from the internet.
Try pointing your browser to http://dyndns.org.domain.name:3689/ and you should access your firefly server configuration page. If you don’t, the firefly client won’t. If you do, try accessing http://dyndns.org.domain.name:3689/rsp/info with your browser (the request that causes your error).
If previous works well in your browser, check its proxy parameters to see if a proxy is configured and if so, copy the proxy parameters in firefly client preferences popup.
