I’m trying to set-up mt-daapd with Bonjour handling my mdnsd and everythign seems to be running from teh server side, but it is completely unreachbale wither via the url:6389 nor from iTunes automatic discovery.

I’ve been tinkering all night, but to no avail.

The mdnsd proces is running, and when I start mt-daapd, I get no erors and it responds with:

[1]+ Done mdnsd

Any ideas as to what I’m missing?


the [1]+ Done mdnsd

isn’t coming from mt-daapd, it’s coming from you shell. It looks like the mdnsd process has been terminated or stopped. You might want to investigate that.

The default port is 3689, also, so that might be part of the problem on your mt-daapd. If you are running without the built-in mdns responder, make sure to run mt-daapd with “-m” to disable mdns.

Double check your port setting in your mt-daapd.conf, start mt-daapd, and try and http: to that port. It should work. if not, forget about mdns, it won’t work until you get mt-daapd to work. Concentrate on making that work first before you worry about mdns.

Verify you don’t have firewalls blocking you, (maybe by connecting from localhost) and if all else fails, then run mt-daapd with a -d9 and a logfile specified in the config file and see if that gives you any more information.
