       mt-daapd - iTunes-compatible DAAP server


       mt-daapd [options]


       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 <>.

       The interface requires authentification; credentials are defined in the
       config file, /etc/mt-daapd.conf.

       A summary of options is included below.
