    Hi, iam puzzled, so i hope you can help…

    I’ve got a Roku Soundbridge M1000. When it starts it displays M1001. The softwareversion is 3.0.44. It can connect to the wireless network (WPA2-PSK) and it can listen to online radio stations.

    I have a computer connected tot the network running Fedora Core 9. I downloaded the 1696 version of the firefly server. It compiled without any problems and it is running ok. I can reach the webinterface from any computer in the network. Also acording to the logfile everything is correct:

    [[email protected] ~]# tail /var/log/mt-daapd.log
    2009-02-18 12:45:31 (b80156c0): Firefly Version svn-1696: Starting with debuglevel 2

    2009-02-18 12:45:33 (b80156c0): Serving 21607 songs. Startup complete in 2 seconds

    However: The Roku Soundbridge does not find the server. I have disabled iptables and restarted the soundbridge, but it still can’t find the server…

    Can anybody tell me what iam doing wrong?

    All the other computers in the network, are they connected using a wired network?
    I’ve seen alot of these problems with wireless connectivity.
    Firefly broadcasts itself over the network. Some routers default have unicast/multicast disabled, which blocks the broadcast.
    This way, wireless devices will not discover firefly.
    Long story short, check your router and look for unicast/multicast and enable it.
