Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the DAAP sharing portion of Rhythmbox as I'm unable to connect to shares.

I have a desktop with my main library, this has RB (At this point I'm avoiding typing RhythmBox) with the DAAP music sharing plugin enabled.

I've ticked the box for sharing my library and I require a password (bring the paranoid person I am)

Fired up RB and instructed it to connect to the share on IPAddress:3689. I clicked the share and it gets stuck on "Connecting to music share" without asking for a password.

Can anyone advise what's going wrong?

Both boxes are running 9.10 desktop 64bit
The wireless connection runs through a VPN server in the following arrangement:

Laptop->Access Point->VPN->Desktop

Port 3689 (TCP) has been opened on the VPN server.


I'm scratching my head over this one.

Just removed the password requirement and connected find :-D

Anyone know how to make the client play ball with the password?
