    Here’s my configuration –
    firefly – svn 1676 (Bundled with NAS NV+ latest firmware)
    iTunes – 7.6.1 running on Windows XP
    Wired through a router – Linksys WRT54GX4

    The same setup was working with the previous version (not sure what version of firefly was bundled in the firmware 3.x).

    Here’s what I have done so far – when I run localhost:3689/applet.html, I get a list of the songs (41) served up. I can play them and they run fine.

    However, iTunes does not even show the Shared Server.

    I also ran http://localhost:3689/rsp/info – I get the following –

    −

    −

    0

    0
    0

    −

    41
    1.0
    svn-1676
    network_server

    Any thoughts on what might be going wrong? Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    It looks like it has not found any tracks when scanning.

    Can you go the web interface http://server:3689 and see where the data directory is pointing ?

    Might just need a scan.

    I have done a full scan and doesn’t change it. The Music folder points to media/Music

    I also changed it to c/media/Music (as that’s how I have sometimes seen the NAS name the shares) and same results. Could it be a password issue to that share?

    You could try bumping the logging level to 5 to see if that shows any more info. This is done in the advanced config page of the config.

    I will give that a try later today. Thanks for your prompt response!

    After turning debug level to 5, here’s what I get –

    So, that’s where I am. Still no Server listing on iTunes…

    I installed the Twonkymedia add on for the NAS and now my Denon receiver can see the server as well as the files. Not iTunes yet though.

    Any ideas why the firefly server would fail and not serve up anything? Debugging has not revealed much…

    If you issue

    http://NAS:3689/rsp/db/*

    that should list all tracks.

    That would then test the RSP portion of the equation.

    Since I have set port forwarding on my router and dynamic dns, shouldn’t I be able to do this remotely (say from work). I can see my NAS via port 443, but I can’t run http://NAS:3689 or http://NAS:3689/rsp/info etc. Is there something I am missing there?

    Thanks for sticking with me on this. Much appreciated!

    Did you change NAS to the IP or machine name of your machine running FireFly ?

    Have you set port forwarding for 3689 as well ?

    I ran http://NAS:3689/rsp/db/* and I got a listing of all 41 songs in my music/Media share. So looks like firefly is finding everything.

    I have turned debug level up to 9 to see if I can get more answers.

    Nothing unusual noted on the log files.

    I decided to reset the FW on the NV+ and that re-installs the firmware. Now I can’t log in to the firefly admin page. User id: admin , password – I tried combinations of ‘infrant1’ or ‘netgear1’ or the admin password for the NV+. Nothing works.

    Any advice?

    I do not know about the Infrant install, but the default password is either mt-daapd or firefly.

    Try your old password for Firefly.
    When I did a firmware upgrade on my ReadyNAS I was surprised to find that it kept the old config file & hence password.

    You could also try running the CleanITunesConfig addon found at http://www.readynas.com/?page_id=94.
    All it does is replace the confir file with a default one. The default password is *netgear1*
