    Hi there,

    I’ve been using mt-daapd to share my music and playlist throughout my house.
    Recently I changed my network setup and now is doesn’t work anymore.

    I created two networks, one for wired clients and one for wireless in between is a gateway routing all traffic.
    I did this to allow guests and others to access the internet using my WIFI access-points without being able to reach my local network.
    The trusted clients (my and my girlfriend’s laptop) are allowed to forward any traffic over the networks through the gateway by mac address.

    This works for every application but not for mt-daapd.
    This seems strange to me because the two networks are in the same subnet.

    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Network wired: 10.0.0.*
    Network WIFI: 138.0.0.*

    What can I do to share music? I have a NAS server running mt-daapd and I connect to it using a Win XP laptop and a Powerbook G4.

    Thanks in advance,

    Boudewijn

    If they don’t have the same ip addressing scheme, then they aren’t on the same subnet. Based on what you wrote below, they aren’t on the same subnet. They get routed through your wireless router.

    In order to see multicast between different subnets, you need a router that will pass multicast traffic. Check your router and see if it has configuration to enable multicast.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the reply. You’re right. I was a bit of there. I actually meant they are in the same subnet mask. But yes, in different subnets.
    I looked into forwarding multicast traffic on my gateway debian box but with no success. I found traffic on 224.0.0.251 which is mDNS I think and that’s probably the traffic which needs to be forwarded.
    Any pointers on how this can be done?

    Thanks,

    Boudewijn

    I found the solution.
    Very simple realy.
    I installed avahi-daemon
    apt-get install avahi-daemon

    In avahi-daemon.conf I changed:
    enable-reflector=yes
    reflect-ipv=yes

    That did the trick.

    Cheers

    Wow.. you have ipv6-only machines?
