I have iTunes streaming server enabled on my ReadyNas. Firefly Media Server, version svn-1676.
I have enabled port forwarding for 3689 to my internal IP address.
I am running the Firefly Client version 0.9 beta (downloaded today) locally.
I am able to access my iTunes Server library fine from my laptop (windows XP) when I am within my LAN (192.168.1.106). I simply enter 192.168.1.106 as my host and it finds my music folder. However, when I try to access it from outside the LAN (126.96.36.199) or (http://www.jpickell.is-a-geek.com) (dyndns) I receive an error message. Connection times out, no proxy, no port. Here are the details:
[FireflyClientException] class java.net.SocketTimeoutException – Connection timed out (no proxy / no port)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
I tried to be more specific from outside the LAN and enter the external ip followed by 188.8.131.52/shares/music I receive the authentication screen and a request for password. When I enter what I was fairly confident was my password, I receive an “Invalid Password” error message.
I am ltraveling for 3 months and was hoping to have access to my iTunes library from my laptop.
