    Hi,

    I’m using a OpenVPN connection to connect to my local network via WLAN over my IPCop Linux-Firewall.

    I’ve installed Firefly on my local SBS2003 Server where also Exchange runs.

    The issue is, that I can’t see the Firefly/mt-daapd-Share from iTunes when I logon to my VPN. Working on the “green” (LAN) network shows the share without any problems.

    Everything else – incl. Exchange works seamless via VPN.

    Any ideas are more than welcome!

    Regards
    Dennis

    Firefly announces it self through multicasts – check that they are propagated thru the VPN tunnel.

    Hi fizze,

    thank you for the fast feedback. I will check how to enable multicasts on the OpenVPN (Zerina) server.

    I’m currently using “TUN”. Will a change to “TAP” enable it? Honestly I’m very new to VPN and learning the basics currently.

    If TAP is a bridged-VPN, then yes, because bridges forward broadcasts and multicasts šŸ˜‰

    Hi,

    I solved the issue with the installation of “Rendezvous-Server” which is freely available on http://ileech.sourceforge.net/. This streams through VPN and makes my Firefly available whereever I want it šŸ™‚
