solved. NMT C200 discovers mediatomb on NMT host itself
finally I found a solution for a problem I worked for 2 days and perhaps someone will find it useful?!
I managed to install and configure a locally (on NMT C200 machine) installed mediatomb. Easy so far.
But unfortunately NMT did not find this locally installed UPNP server in the network menu. All my other UPNP players and control points discovered the NMT-MediaTomb but NMT itself did not.
The solution was a second IP adress on eth0. Obviously NMT explicitly refuses local UPNP servers.
So I inserted the following code lines in the start script of mediatomb under /share/Apps/local/etc/init.d/30mediatomb.sh:
if [ `ifconfig eth0:1 | grep -c 192.168.0.219` = 0 ]; then
ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.0.219 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255 allmulti multicast
ifconfig eth0:1 up
and started the mediatomb daemon bound to this new IP:
$DAEMON -d -p 49152 -f $CFG -c $CFG/config.xml -u $DAEMONUSER -l $LOGFILE -i 192.168.0.219
Now I can use the UPNP structured MP3 library of my local mediatomb inside of NMT, too.
