So that I could only open a port for sharing music over the internet and not my admin site.

If you are talking about using FirePlay to “share” the music then you simply need your own webserver on any other port, and not using firefly’s embedded one. 28th January 2008 at 10:52 pm #16095 siege_kingParticipant Maybe I’m blind, but I only see a port for listening to itunes, not for the webserver. Here is part of my mt-daapd.conf: [general] # # web_root (required) # # Location of the admin web pages. If you installed from # ipk, this is correct # web_root = /shares/mss-hdd/__opt/share/mt-daapd/admin-root # # port (required) # # What port to listen on. It is possible to use a different # port, but this is the default iTunes port # port = 3689 # # admin_pw (required) # # This is the password to the administrative pages # # YOU SHOULD PROBABLY CHANGE THIS # admin_pw = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Or do I change that somewhere else? Got svn1696 Thanks for helping me! 29th January 2008 at 6:13 am #16096 rpeddeParticipant @siege_king wrote: Hi everyone, it would be nice to have an option to set the port of the admin sites.

Moving it to another port would be another listener, and it would be fatter. It’s doable, but I just never considered it because it seemed too fat. Maybe a decent compromise would be putting tcpwrapper-like controls over the admin pages.
