    I’d love to get this server running, as I have a lot of ogg music that I’d rather not convert.

    For reference, the server is a box running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP1, kept up to date. The music is all in a single folder, totally around 60 gigs of music. The main client is a Macbook Pro running 10.5.1, also kept up to date. Attempting to use the latest iTunes.

    Installation seems to go smoothly. Upon running, it reports no errors and appears to be running fine. However, I cannot connect via iTunes on the same network. Checking the Log in the control panel for FMS brings up the following line around 500 times:

    2008-01-11 00:45:23 (d87c64ce): Error writing to client socket: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

    The date stamp changes obviously, but otherwise the error is exactly the same. It becomes impossible to connect via iTunes.

    How do I troubleshoot this?

    What version of Firefly?
    svn-1586 is the most stable version at the moment

    The one listed under Nightly – the Stable took me directly to a source tar as far as I could tell and I didn’t want to compile it.

    The nightlies link has dozens of versions for multiple operating systems…
    The version number is embedded within the name, eg:

      Firefly Media Server (svn-1696).exe is version 1696
      Firefly Media Server (svn-1695).exe is version 1695
      Firefly Media Server (svn-1586).exe is version 1586

    svn-1586 is the most stable of the nightlies. svn-1696 has a few problems but is useable if setup to run with an sqlite3 database. Anything in between should be avoided due to memory leaks.

    I assume that you’re using svn-1696 as it’s at the top of the list. Could you please confirm that by clicking on the about tab?

    Firefly needs to have TCP port 9999 and UDP port 5353 open in your servers firewall. Are these open?

    Have you installed Bonjour for Windows?

    I am indeed running 1696. I might pick up 1586 if I can find it then.

    My server has no firewall in an of itself, so open ports should not matter. I’m running between two computers on my local network and am, indeed, using Bonjour. I’ve tried changing the port from 9999 too, to see if it was a problem with port in use, however, it’s no good.

    __Edit__

    After checking the nightly site, it only goes as far back as 1685 – is that what you meant?

    No. At the bottom of the page is says *See all snap shots*
    Click this and keep scrolling down. You’ll eventually get to svn-1586

    Well, doesn’t have the same error, but I’ve got a new one.

    I uninstalled the old version, rebooted and installed the new one, it gave me a completely different log:

    It goes on with the unknown meta codes for a while. This happens only after I attempt to connect via iTunes, which just says “Loading…” for a long time and never connects.

    Huh. That’s strange… that usually means iTunes closed the connection on the server. Like iTunes doesn’t like what it’s getting back.

    Is this when connecting, or when trying to play a song?

    It’s when connecting – it occurs as soon as I click on it in my iTunes.

    The one you quoted came from 1696 I believe it was – the latest nightly. It spit that error out about 500 times in a 3 second period. I’ve uninstalled that and gone back to 1586 as suggested, and it spit it out only once at the end of the huge log I posted about.

    I noticed one odd thing – I stopped the server and then used Add/Remove programs to uninstall. It said “Stopping Service” at the beginning of the uninstaller, which I figured was weird. I made it a point to reboot to be sure everything was cleared out of the system. I booted back up and went to install 1586 – the first thing it said was “Stopping Service” – I’m not sure if it naturally says this whether the service is running or not, but I thought it odd. I assumed that was the case before, but not as much now.

    I’d absolutely love to get this working, as I’m using iTunes on my server to sync up my iPod and it can’t hold my entire library. I’d like to be able to keep the same set of music on my iPod but access it all via my laptop over Firefly – especially if I can avoid converting all of my ogg files to mp3 or another format iTunes can share.

    Is it possible you can email me your songs3.db from program filesfirefly media server? ([email protected])

    I’d like to be able to replicate this.

    Thanks.

    I can’t make this go. It works okay for me on both osx and windows.

    What windows version and iTunes version are you using?

    And how are the client and server connected? Are they both wired? Is one wireless?

    I’m running Windows 2003 R2 SP1. The Firefly server I’m running is 1586 – I tried with 1696 and it just spit out the same error about forcibly closed sockets.

    iTunes I’m running 7.5, I just updated to 7.6 and it’s still not working.

    The client and server are through a router – client is generally on rock-solid wireless, but I’ve tried it wired too and it doesn’t work.

    Any strange networking stuff on the server? VPN software, anything like that? I tried the db on a WHS box, and that’s essentially 2k3r2. No problems. Firewall software? Or Norton with the anti-worm protection?

    Anything strange like that?

    #15827

    Nope. My server sits behind my router so I’ve never felt the need for a firewall. Windows Firewall is off and I have no form of antivirus installed on it.

    I have Hamachi installed and running, I could try closing it down to see if that helps, but it’s never interfered with anything before.

    Other than that, nothing I can think of. The SMB shares mount fine so I don’t think it’s any kind of communication error between the computers.
