just to let you know that my XMBC (build on latest SVN 10/02/07) isn’t connecting to Firefly SVN1498 either.
I’ll give it a try this evening with some older XMBC builds.
I’ve got all the usual stuff checked (connection to itunes as a client OK, IP and SMB connection between XMBC and PC ok, etc)
You also get the “cannot connect to server” message? If you run it in -d9, does it actually fetch stuff from the server?
