Leopard / Twonky Is it working?

Post by grossinm » Tue Nov 13, 2007 4:42 pm

Installed Twonky 4.4.2.

According to the installer, it installs the files in:

• /Library/StartupItems/MediaServer
• /usr/local/mediaserver

The second directory (at least to my eyes) does not exist.

I can get to the configuration page, but not sure what the proper settings are?

Do I point it to my Itunes folder in the sharing, and point it to it in the 3rd party / External apps section?

What about Iphoto? It only shows 317 photos (there should be 3000+)...

Here is my status/info page:

Ok, found the ini file, here it is:

How can I verify the server is even running?

Thanks

Well, as an answer to your question, you can check and see if the server is running by trying to load http://127.0.0.1:9000/ in your webbrowser.

This might as well be the "Leopard + Twonky" thread.

One issue I have run into: In my system log I keep getting hundreds of listings with the following form:

12/11/07 2:28:12pm com.apple.SystemStarter[35] cmd: ifconfig -u -a inet > /var/tmp/tmp.324.nTAf4T

The only thing I can think of is Twonky's "Restart on NIC change". I have turned that off, but I have not yet waited long enough to make sure that eliminated the issue.
