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!

Firefly announces it self through multicasts – check that they are propagated thru the VPN tunnel.15th April 2008 at 5:10 am #16827AnonymousInactive
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.15th April 2008 at 7:16 am #16828fizzeParticipant
If TAP is a bridged-VPN, then yes, because bridges forward broadcasts and multicasts 😉15th April 2008 at 8:29 pm #16829AnonymousInactive
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 🙂

Uhm.. maybe the happiness was too early :/ Since 2 days I’m trying to get it work again. But nothing works… so – if there are still any untold ideas.. I would be happy to her ’em!
