The administrative UI works fine but the logfile indicates that I have some kind of problem. Rendezvous servers seems to fail to start which could explain why I can’t see the server.

Can this problem be fixed?

You can run it with “-m”, to turn off the rendezvous server, and use howl or avahi or another rendezvous daemon. You can use the configuration files of either of those daemons to always advertise mdns for mt-daapd, or let the server advertise and un-advertise when it starts and stops by using the “–enable-howl” configuration option, or the –enable-avahi (only on latest nightlies: http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org).
