    Hey,
    I have to switch of the firewall of my MAC OS 10.4.10 completely in order to let the music sharing of firefly (latest betaversion) work.
    Otherwise I can see the server but can not connect my soundbridge to it.
    Can anybody let me know how I have to configure the firewall to listen to the shared music and have my firewall protection still activated.
    Thanks, Felix

    PS.: Firefly Pref – everything is on automatic; I tried some other ports on manual but it did not work at all 😕

    strange… normally assigning a port manually IS the best way to get FF working on the Mac. Of course you need to specify that port also in the firefly config page – and you need to add the port as an exception is the Mac firewall:

    Go to System prefs/Sharing/Firewall and select New. Port name is ‘Other’, assign a port in TCP – I use 1024 for example. UDP leave blank, give the name ‘Firefly’. Ok that. Go to the Firefly pref pane is System prefs and click Advanced. Set ‘Assign Server Port’ to ‘Manually’ and then enter the port number you have chosen. Apply the change.

    The other thing to do is shorten the automatically generated name assigned to Firefly – that was a known bug a while back that glitched up FF and may still be the case.

    hope that helps…
