I'm new to FreeBSD, but I am running into an issue I can't seem to solve
after a few days.
I have a FreeBSD 7.0 amd64 set up. I installed mt-daapd/avahi from ports.
For some reason, I can see the share on the fileserver but not on the
network. Its like everything just stops when it get to the em0 (interface
plugged into the switch).
I can browse multicast dns locally as seen below
[root at freebsd /usr/ports]# avahi-browse _daap._tcp
+ em0 IPv4 freebsd _daap._tcp local
My network card has mulitcast
em0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
I did add a mulitcast route
route add -net 188.8.131.52 -iface em0
I have since taken it off since it didn't do anything
And when i tcpdump and check the dump I see mulitcast broadcasts being sent
20:42:00.085459 IP freebsd.mdns > 184.108.40.206.mdns: 0 [2a] PTR (QM)?
Both mt-daapd/avahi are running.
When i browse on my network from my macbookpro I never see the daapd share
mbp:~ jdunn$ mDNS -B _daap._tcp
Browsing for _daap._tcp
Talking to DNS SD Daemon at Mach port 4099
If i have itunes running on either of my macs it shows up during this
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could have messed up?
Thanks for any help
