transmission is using my Amahitunes port?

Postby zeem » Fri Feb 18, 2011 3:30 am

Hi all!

Been having trouble starting the amahitunes app. Today i found the log file for mt-daap it states every minute:

2011-02-08 23:54:17: Rescanning database
2011-02-08 23:55:43: Starting rendezvous daemon
2011-02-08 23:55:43: Client running
2011-02-08 23:55:43: Current database version: 8
2011-02-08 23:55:43: Starting signal handler
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Loading playlists
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Initializing database
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Starting mp3 scan
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Starting web server from /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root on$
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Could not open port: Address already in use
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Error staring web server: Address already in use
2011-02-08 23:55:44: Aborting


with the command sudo netstat -ptuna i get:
EN 1995/transmission-d
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:3689 0.0.0.0:* LIST

shall i change the port in mt-daap or what shall i do?

Transmission 1.93
AmahiTunes: 1.0



Thanks

The daap protocol seems to rely on using port 3689, so other devices on you network can know where to get the music.

I don't know how Transmission works, but it might be a good idea to try and change its port number so it doesn't conflict with daap.

hmm

after i've read a few threads i found that there were a problem with a correct pid-file or something.
I tried to kill the transmission process that used the port. But java took over the port.
Found a thread in this forum that said a reboot should fix it. Well it did :?

Now is both transmission and amahitunes servers running. BUT now amaitunes cant find the files. How i hate this.

I read about the ownership problem but i tried the two commands on my music folder as root chmod -R 755 /var/hda/files/music
chown -R username folder

correct?

In http://hda:3689/status.html i see:

Status
thread session host action
55 0 192.168.1.100 Serving admin pages

service status control
Rendezvous Stopped Start MDNS Server
DAAP Server Running Stop DAAP Server
Background scanner Idle Start Scan

uptime 3 hours, 58 minutes, 14 seconds
songs 574
songs served 0
db version 1

From this I read that there ar 574 songs on my server and 0 songs that amahitunes share?

Well back to learning this linux thing.
