Setting up Minimserver



  • Hi,

    Maybe it has been covered before... In that case sorry for asking again :)
    Might be that this is not in the correct sub-forum, but did not know where to place it otherwise.

    I wanted to implement the following (on Intel i350-T4) :

    NIC1 : 192.168.1.x : LAN (PCs, Printers etc.)
    NIC2 : 192.168.2.x : NAS (Data and Multimedia on seperate NAS)
    NIC3 : 192.168.3.x : MEDIA (Several audio renderers, Smart TVs etc)
    NIC4 : 192.168.4.x : Wireless Stuff

    I am running Minimserver on my NAS, so on NIC2.

    I need to have my control points on both NIC1 and on NIC4.
    Audio rendering is done on devices attached to NIC1, NIC3 and NIC4.

    But it seems that : "MinimServer expects the control point and renderer to be on the same subnet as the device running MinimServer. I don't know of any way to do what you want." (as quoted by SImonCN, minimserver author).

    Is there anyway I can implement / resolve this in PFSense?

    Since I am still learning PFSense, a good explanation on how to would be highly appreciated.

    Regards.

    @Patpop said in Setting up Minimserver:

    And how/why is that - how does it discover these other boxes? A broadcast, multicast - what protocol does it use to discover.. Or do you enter their IPs?

    Put them on the same vlan if that is what is required.

    Appears to be UPnP AV. So all multicast discovery shenanigans.
