Bonjour (Apple)_home network expert needed:--->MPD daemon problem. [HELP!]


Recommended Posts

Please, I need a solution for my net-troubles to enjoy my new Auraliti player that runs on MPD by Daemon...connected with Ethernet cable!

I think to know what is "the problem" but...let me explain to you.

---The problem is that the Apple devices (iMac, iPad) do not connect on the server using the MpaD app or reMPD app and wifi devices like my HP printer; anyway they are internet connected, in fact I am surfing right now---

 

1. The router is connected with ethernet CABLE to iMac (OS 10.5.X) ; I surf with Firefox and use normally the emails, NOT ABLE to enter in a page "http://auraliti-player.local" and not able to print via wifi.

2. I have a second PC (win 7) with a ethernet CABLE too; I surf with Firefox, use normally the emails, able to enter in a page "http://auraliti-player.local", able to print over my HP printer via wifi, (I can control the Music on MPD only with the browser app).

3. I have a Nokia phone (Symbian OS) and via wifi I can do all like the win7 PC! Only not able to run the MPD app but only because I have not one.

4. My iPad is surfing in wifi mode, email too, but NOT ABLE to enter in a page "http://auraliti-player.local" and not able to print over wifi and NOT able to find the server with the MPD apps like MPaD or reMPD.

5. I use one netbook with WIN XP with wifi and I am able to surf and use the emails, I am able to enter in a page "http://auraliti-player.local", able to print over wifi with the HP printer, (I can control the Music on MPD only with the browser app).

 

 

 

So, please, I need the iPad like remote for my Auraliti player, I ceck "Bonjour" but too many options...and for me only the Apple devices are not sharing the server...the name I found on set up preferences is "iMac-NAME.local" and...what about the HDisc name connected via USB to my Auraliti?

 

 

Sorry for the long text, I hope you understand.

Thanks in advance, Luca.

Either I've missed it three times, or you never mentioned what the router is. If you want to buy your way out of headaches, it is hard to do better than getting an Airport Extreme.

 

In fact, the first thing to try is omitting the .local suffix.

 

Meanwhile, figure out how to access the interface of your current router or whatever it is that allocates local ip addresses on your subnet, find the (numerical) ip address allocated to the auralati thing (as the poster above suggests correctly), and put that into the browser and surf to it. Don't put the suffix .local onto it.

...see:

now, without changing anything MPaD for iPad WORKS!

(with .local suffix)

But, afeter closing it or tomorrow (I am sure) I have to try many many times before to run...unbelivable!

 

Now I have PORT 6600, auraliti-player.local like settings.

 

Please, where I found the IP adress of the auraliti?

Port number must be 6600 or?

 

Note that with WINXP and web NeoMPC0.5.2 it always runs...(no settings required, but it's a poor application...and with a most graphic app like GMPC also on web with settings, NOTHING!

 

Router is made for our italian provider maybe custom, here the link:

You will find the ip address of the player about 1/2 way down on the home page of the player. The port, 6600, is unchanged and no password is used.

 

Multicast, the underlying technology for Bonjour is not well supported and some routers actually suppress it. If you use the ip address it will always work, until the router is changed, or in some cases restarted when it will use new ip address for everything in the network.

 

If you use the automatic setup on Mpad it will get the ip address and save it automatically.

C'mon!

You made a w o n d e r f u l product!

And...

 

So, please, (believe me!) make a simple upgrade with a simple remote player with cache, ask 5 or 10 USD more and you will have thousand of satisfied customers.

Do not worry,no buttons...but a remote...every time to upload the cover, songs, playlist...terrible...

 

Sorry I am a dummy...but, what about "home page of the player": where?

The page that comes up when you go to auraliti-player.local

 

The .local is important since zeroconfig uses the .local for local dns resolution otherwise it looks on the web and finds nothing. Using it without goes to a different set of protocols.

 

The ip protocols were invented by nerds and geeks for nerds and geeks. That we can use them constructively is a miracle.

..I think (like you said...)that there are problems between server and Apple protocols...

I see that on Daemon public page:

http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Music_Player_Daemon_Wiki

 

there are different versions of the server firmware---but too difficoult for me...

 

ANYWAY, when I am connected, I understand why you choose this kind of remote: it is fantastic!

In this moment I am use with the WINXP notebook wireless the "Gnome M.P.C." App: absolutely fantastic with many info about the band, data, pictures and so on...

Hopeing that the playlist and cover album will remain on my HDisc also when disconnected from server...and hope somebody will fix my trouble to connect...after 10 times I can do it in this moment with "auraliti-player.local" Port 6600, no password...

P.S. One setting option in Gnome player is "enable server crossfade": uh? (No, I see that with Gnome anly the playlist remains...the cover album not...every time to upload after closing the App...)

Nw I am sure, not the iOS or OSX (Apple)... also the Win7 or WinXP cannot enter/connect to the server.

Ok, one time every 20 times!

I do not know what's or what can be...(random?)

I know that MPD (I think wrote on Unix/Linux?) is not stable, like "you" wrote one message above...

If somebody knows how to set or...a link...please...
