I have checked that Firefly is registered as an exclusion to the Windows Firewall and it is. Also I have checked the share permissions on the iTunes music file and these are set to share.

I run McAfee and tried switching this off, but it keeps re-starting. In any event I can’t keep my virus checker switched off permanently.

Any advice greatly appreciated as to how to fix this.

One other more minor query: Where does iTunes keep its playlists ? I would like to declare this file to Firefly as a “Play List File” within Firefly’s “Configuration” panel.

Regards

Alan

Latest nightlies have an updated database that works harder to avoid the virus scanner problems. You can get it at http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org.

WRT to playlists, it is in the “iTunes Music Library.xml” file, which should be in your “My Music” folder. If you add that folder as a music directory using hte web interface, it should pick up the itunes playlists.
