Soundbridge can’t find mt-daapd server running on NSLU2

I am running mt-daapd server on NSLU2 hardware. I’ve managed to install and get the server up and running.

Now I have a Pinnacle Soundbrige device that I want to use, but the device won’t discover the server running on the NSLU. When using Itunes on my PC, the server is discovered and everything works just fine. (Also worth mentioning is that I have a Firefly server on my PC that works perfect with the SoundBridge)

And ideas on why SoundBrige can’t discover the server running on the NSLU?

My guess is you are running the stable version – 0.2.4. The version that works with the soundbridge is the nightlies version at http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org.

An easier way to get it might be something like this:


[email protected]# echo "src firefly http://ipkg.fireflymediaserver.org/armeb" > /etc/ipkg/firefly.conf
[email protected]# ipkg update
[email protected]# ipkg install mt-daapd

That should probably get you the latest version. If it prompts you to replace your config, answer “YES”, then start the server with “/opt/init.d/S60mt-daapd”.

Let it get started and then you can work on configuring it from the web interface at http://server:3689/, using a username of “admin” and a password of “mt-daapd”.

Good luck.
