I can't get mine to work either, I've done the port forwarding, and still my library does not show up on either 4444 or 8080 ports. my address is http://68.175.6.188:8080

Whats up with that is the application and port you selected for it are running just fine. That is the loop back address or local address that every computer has, so it is a good way to see if the application is running.

 

Your router or windows firewall are preventing the application/service from using your real IP address.

TCP Port, Bruce? Is there any noticeable lag when playing music through this? I would think UDP is the better way to go, given the amount of data being sent. (And the data type)

I haven't looked at the code to see, but I do believe it is designed to use TCP ports like most webservers are.

 

It is a small http server, I am not familiar with many http servers that use UDP :huh:

 

I have found it to be about the easiest thing I have ever used for serving up my music files on both my LAN and to a few friends I give the address to.

 

I removed the link I had posted in my first post, and changed ports because a few people were really using it far too much for my liking. It is after all for "me" a personal music server, and I don't intend to give the whole world access to my limited bandwidth. ;)

even with all firewalls shut down its still no go. :cr@sh:

but i may know whats going on just need some feed back on it. ever since we got comcast broadband i have been unable to share files on another program. i could on verizon dsl but not now. im wondering if maybe just maybe the cable modem may have a firewall in it?

its a motorola sb5120 cable modem. any thoughts?

Comcast filters http, ftp, bittorent, and all kinds of stuff, in essence they sell you unlimited broadband for the purpose of downloading and uploading large files and such, then limit, filter and block any application that can do it :P

Bruce,

 

I browsed through the source code some...it seems to use TCP, although it's not a persistent connection.

 

ServerThread.java [123]:

 

finally {
			// we're done with the request so we can close the
			// connection to the client now.
			try { client.close(); }
			catch ( Exception e ) {}
		}

Great program - I'm running it on my PC right now and really like it. Thanks!
