This is a fine piece of software. Thank you.
Rebuilt my Linux homeserver with a new distro (Mepis 3.3) last weekend. Running the latest nightly the server appears in my Windows iTunes client but disappears after a variable amount of time.
Remembering that this could be caused by having multiple mdns responders running I checked and sure enough Howl had been installed by default. Uninstalled Howl, but the problem remains.
Any ideas anyone? Does anyone know if I could use something like Netstat to see what is running on which port?21st May 2005 at 7:40 pm #3325
I discovered last night that Guarddog was installed by default in the new distro. Turning it off seems to have stopped the problem.21st May 2005 at 11:58 pm #3326
It turns out there is a less drastic way to do that.. the thing it’s blocking is multicast traffic, which is traffic to 126.96.36.199 on port 5353.
If you could find a way to enable just that traffic, it would work.
Sadly, I found Guarddog to be so byzantine as unusable, at least for me. I find it curious that one could build a graphical interface more complex and unintuitive than the command-line commands it replaces. IP tables is straightforward and clear to me. Maybe it’s just me.
But if you could find a way to enable that traffic, it would work.
