    Hey,

    I’m on a college campus, and I was wondering if it was possible to access a DAAP share across subnets WITHOUT port forwarding. I’ve tried EVERYTHING! RendezvousProxy lets me see the server, but not connect if I’m on a separate subnet. The way my campus network is organized is that every ten or so people are on a different subnet. Am I missing something? I desperately want to get this to work. PLEASE HELP! Thanks a lot!

    Oh, sorry.

    I saw this, and didn’t answer it right away, and so it got unflagged.

    Short answer is no way. Your resnet is probably hooked up with a 4500 or something, and without configuring that switch for multicast, there isn’t anything you can do on your end.

    Work study program in the IT department, maybe, but failing that… 🙂

    As far as RendezvousProxy goes, it’s worked okay for me. Remembering of course that when you set it up, you must set it up for the host on the *other* network.

    For example, if I’m at 192.168.2.15, and my friend is at 192.168.15.22, using port 3689, then I’d set up rendezvous proxy like this:

    ip address: 192.168.15.22
    port: 3689
    host label: friend
    service name: friend’s itunes
    service type: _daap._tcp

    That’s always worked okay for me.
