    I installed firefly on Ubuntu 7.04. I can view the web interface and it says it is running fine, but when I turn my Roku Soundbridge on it does not find any libraries to connect to. I can play internet radio on the Roku so connection to the wireless is OK.

    Any help please?

    Are you sure you do have a RoKu soundbridge? 😉 (as opposed to a Pinnacle branded one?)

    Other than that, is rhythmbox or banshee (with the banshee-daap plugin) able to see the share?
    Also, there are various avahi/bonjour/zeroconf browsers available. Those should show available DAAP shares.
    Also, these should show the telnet and RCP protocol from the soundbridge.
    If such a browser doesn’t show anything on your network, then there might be a problem with multicasts not being forwarded correctly.

    Make sure you have avahi configured to run at startup (/etc/defaults/avahi-daemon, I think), and make sure its running before you start the mt-daapd server. Also, you should check the built-in firewall and make sure it allows multicast.

    I’m pretty sure avahi is running. I did get a warning about using the HOWL compatiblity layer and to change it to the API layer, but nothing crashed or didn’t load. I don’t suppose you know how to do that?

    The only firewall i have in on my wireless router. Its a Linksys WRT54GS V5. I did tick some box which used the word multicast, but didn’t understand it really.

    Well, the GS is a nice box, but v5 runs an evil breed (*g*) of VxWorks. All other linksys routers really dont need any changes to allow multicast.

    In Feisty avahi-daemon is not started upon boot by default. So unless you changed anything, I am pretty sure it’s NOT running 😉

    To force a startup simply type

    sudo avahi-daemon

    Also, did you

    I typed that command in the terminal and it said
    “Daemon already running on PID 4849”

    Just as an update. If I have Banshee running on my Linux computer, the Roku does see mt-daapd.

    But banshee is a maap server itself so i probably don’t need firefly.

    Thanks
