Reply To: Access a remote DAAP over SSH, the ubuntu way



I got the SSH tunnel to work in just a minute using GSTM (SSH tunnel GUI) in Ubuntu 8.10, very nice 8). Now i guess it would be a good idea to only allow connections to the (unencrypted) DAAP share from localhost. Of course, this can be easily accomplished with iptables, but for various reasons i don’t want to do that. Is there an explicit way to only allow connections from localhost to mt-daapd?

One more question, if i have mt-daapd running on my laptop, and connect to a foreign WLAN for example, will the share be broadcasted in some way so that a user doesen’t have to enter my IP address and port number to connect to it? That would be a very bad idea…!
