DroboApps and Firefly iTunes server

After following the instructions on the DroboApps website: (, I installed Apache and the DroboApps Admin Utility.

Using the DroboApps Admin Utility, I installed the Firefly application. I then changed the server name and the default password, and I was up and running.  Browsing to the DroboApps share, I dropped my music into the media folder within the Firefly folder.

The only issue was that my iTunes could not see the shared library!  A bit of searching found this Apple support article:

It seems that my software firewall was not allowing TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5353. Once opened up, iTunes instantly found the shared library.

All my music is currently being moved off my netbook, into the secure and resilient environment of the Drobo.
