iTunes Set Up on F4-234 NAS

Post by DavidEber »

I am unable to get iTunes shared library to work w/ F4-234 NAS while I am in the house on the same network and am out of idea. Please help.

ISSUE: I can see the NAS Server and the name I gave the music folder in the iMusic app on all the computers in the house. …under the library menu. Just when I click the server it quickly flickers, flashing for a 1/2 sec as it attempts to connect, then it goes back to the default library.

Note: I can see the music libraries I created on other home computers…so don't believe the router is blocking it or any firewalls on the computers...even though I am not going ou

This makes me think it is something to do with the NAS set up…Network or permissions. So I:

1. Enabled the iTunes Server app. Authorizing the only directory it lets you… /Music. Set no password…and tried it with a password… iMusic on mac computer never asked for password regardless. Tells me connect is not even coming close to connecting.

2. I denied all users, folders, and application permissions for everyone including the admin User I created. I then reboot the NAS and reapplied read/write to everyone, every folder, every App.

3. I know little of networking (as you can tell) so I just enabled everything:
a. Enabled SMB, AFP, NFS, and WebDAV, going with the default settings when you enable the features
b. Allowed Telnet / SSH access
c. Enables UPnP and Windows Discovery (Bonjour was already on.)

4. I made sure media indexing was enabled, mapping to the default /music folder that you can't change in itunes app…

Note: While testing I only have like 20 songs in the /music directory…each in their own folder. I checked from the computer and they all have read/write for every name listed

Thanks of any idea to fix this,
