mt-daapd - iTunes-compatible DAAP server
This manual page documents briefly the mt-daapd command.
mt-daapd, now known as the Firefly Media Server, is a DAAP (Digital
Audio Access Protocol) server that works with most POSIX-compatible
operating systems. It allows you to share your music collection over
the local network using the DAAP protocol also used by Apple’s iTunes.
mt-daapd offers an integrated web interface for configuration and
control; the web interface is available on port 3689 (daap) with any
web browser. If mt-daapd is running on the local machine, the web
interface can be reached at <http://127.0.0.1:3689>.
The interface requires authentification; credentials are defined in the
config file, /etc/mt-daapd.conf.
A summary of options is included below.
-a Set current working directory to application directory.
