    First of all!
    i love this project!
    I was looking for a solution that for central storage of my music and perhaps also share it with my mobile phone by internet. I loved the concept of i tunes but it just was not really complete..

    well hell.. to the main problem..
    When i start firefly ( version 1634 and lattest bonjour)) it starts perfectly.
    I can share a folder that contain mp3 files ( \servermp3 that way.. )
    But when i try to access from an different computer with i tunes the music i dont get an the shared music… hmmz… not so nice..
    I dont even see the name of the firefly server.. its just complete empty..

    Before people going to ask me why i dont just use itunes on my server and itunes on the other laptop.
    ..
    I have an ipod want to sync the music with the laptop.
    I want the music to be stored on the server.
    The database of the music must also contain the song rate info.
    Xbmc (xbox media center ) must also be able to play the songs ( uses Daapd or Upnp)

    I hope someone is able to help me.. or getting me out of the illusion that this all is possible.. 😉

    Aside from 1586, which someone else mentioned, it would be worth reinstalling bonjour for windows, and following the instructions on the faq (http://wiki.fireflymediaserver.org/FAQ) that deals with sharing music from network connected drives.
