Firefly/mt-daapd network tweaks

Playing with Firefly/mt-daapd tonight, a couple notes:

  • I had to turn IGMP snooping on the switch. (Cool.)
  • On MacOSX if the firewall is configured to block UDP, one has to open UDP port 5353. (Duh.)
  • Custom (arno-iptables-firewall) rules on the server:
    # Allow access to avahi-daemon
    ${IPTABLES} -A EXT_INPUT_CHAIN -d 224.0.0.251 -p udp -m udp --dport 5353 -j ACCEPT
    # Allow access to mt-daapd
    ${IPTABLES} -A EXT_INPUT_CHAIN -s ${LOCAL_NET} -p tcp -m tcp --dport 3689 -j ACCEPT
