    I have been trying to get my SoundBridge 1001 up and running for a few weeks now and my last attempt was to try out firefly and see if that would solve my problems.

    1st – I have a M1001 Soundbridge
    I have media connect on my computer and shows soundbridge enabled for access
    I have a Linksys WRT54GS router up and running with multiple computers connecting – all seems good with the computers.

    The computer with firefly running is a direct connect (hard wired) to the router.
    I have tried getting the Soundbridge up – wireless and direct connet.
    I have taken down all firewalls, tried with WEP enabled, then disabled, etc.

    Right now I have the soundbridge direct attached to my rounter and am just trying to get that running at this stage.

    The firefly server appears to read my song library (it’s pointing to ITunes in MyMusic).

    I have rebooted my machine and the soundbridge multiple times

    I actually got the server to connect Twice and it then showed me Playlists – when I picked that – no playlist error.
    A retry of the playlists and wow – my playlists showed up – but then I could never to get to the songs.

    I rebooted and haven’t been able to get anywhere clost to that again.
    I keep getting connection to server failed when I select “Play Firefly Media Center” on the Soundbridge.

    I am getting pretty frustrated at this stage. I have V6 rounter with 1.5.8 linksys firmware running. I deinstalled V7 of Itunes and put back on Version 6.0.4.2.

    I have checked settings via some of the forums here – like the gpedit.msc settings listed in one post – set as they advised there.

    I am running XP Professional SP2 on my computer.

    Anyone got a solution for me?

    If you can’t get it working with windows media center or firefly, then I’m guessing there must be a fundamental networking problem of some kind.

    Firewall on the PC, maybe? Try disabling all firewalls (built in and 3rd party) and see if that helps any.

    It might be worth trying the latest nightly build (http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org), although it changes the way it handles playlists to work around an iTunes 7 issue. So it takes two full rescans before it gets the playlists set up correctly.

    One way to test would be to see if the web admin pages work. From the tray icon you should be able to bring up the web administration page. If you go into configuration and set an admin password, then you should be able to get into the web config from any machine in your network at http://server:9999, logging in as “admin” with the admin password you set.

    If you can’t get that to work, that would make me think firewall.

    The firefly logs look okay. There are some known issues with iTunes playlists, but you don’t seem to have been bitten by them.

    What is the K drive? Is this a physical drive, or a network drive?

    Ok – at 2 am. this am. I got things working – was a firewall issue after all…. ugh….

    I also will download and install the nightly release as you recommend to help the playlists issue.

    I will then take the leap to wireless if all goes well have the next update install- and give things a try.
    Thanks much for your quick reply.
    I will let ya know how far I get in this next phase of effort.

    Oh – K drive is really my boot drive – so a physical drive.
