Network required for Firefly to SoundBridge?

    I’ve been running Firefly on my home pc (linux) to serve songs to a Roku Soundbridge. I’m going to be away from home but wanted to be able to use the Soundbridge. I’ve installed Firefly on a Macbook (under linux via vmware fusion) and it works, at least on the local machine. (On the linux side, Rhythmbox sees it; on the Mac side, iTunes sees it.)

    If I want to stream my library to the Soundbridge, do I have to plug both laptop and Soundbridge into a network, or will the Soundbridge just “see” the Firefly server?




    Well firefly also runs under OS X, at least its supposed to be 😉

    If we’re talking wireless network here you need to make your macbook look like an accesspoint. a DHCP-Server wouldn’t hurt either, so that the SoundBridge picks up an IP and stuff.

    If you wire it, a DHCP might not hurt either, and you need to make sure that you use a crossover cable (unless you have a fairly new macbook – IIRC those automatically detect crossover from straight network cable…? Someone correct me if I’m wrong)


    OK, it sounds like it needs a network setup; I’ll pack a router, then.

    I tried the Firefly Mac build but couldn’t get iTunes to play any of the songs. I don’t know if it’s because my collection is in ogg format or what, but I just didn’t want to take the time to troubleshoot it. 😳
