Thank you. That worked :)

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Hi Mascaret, Did you authorize mpd to go through win10's firewall? Working fine here (mpd on win10, MALP on android). If you mean is there are firewall port configured, yes. As said in my initial post, SERVER firewall is configured to allow TCP & UDP traffic in both directions on port 6600. I have t...

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Why do you want to configure bind_to_address? Like I said, I just copied it from some guy's blog. This isn't "linuxy", this is "IPy", this is about configuring servers for the Internet Protocol, and that's the same on Windows and Linux. But on most Windows programs, you usually don't have options l...

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Not exactly true. UDP is not used. And what does "multi-directional" mean? I can remove the firewall rules for UDP but would that really be a problem (having something there that it isn't using)? Multi-directional i.e. both ways (inbound and outbound). Is there a control port setting I am missing f...

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Hi Max, You configured your "httpd" output on port 6600, but the control port also defaults to port 6600 (since you did not specify a different non-standard port). That doesn't make sense. I don't understand. The only port I have been using is 6600, which is configured multi-directionally for TCP & ...

OK, I submitted the file to virustotal.com and that suggested it was OK.

Job done.

Thanks :)

Remote Connection To MPD

Hi, Having installed and configured MPD, I set about demonstrating that it worked on the same machine (aka SERVER). I used the client MPDCtrl on Microsoft Store. It worked fine on the host system, using 127.0.0.1 as the host and 6600 as the port. Unfortunately, I have not been as successful in runni...

Re: Signature

Your link is relative, it has no protocol, thus gets requested from forum.musicpd.org Thanks. So, now I understand what's happening (I can see that the link is being requested by forum.musicpd.org, how on Earth do I fix it because I supplied the full link (www.jamescrocks.com/images/shakespearestar...

Signature

Hi Again, Having just joined the forum (Ah, forums! So much nicer than Facebook), I [re]created my signature and ran immediately into a problem in that it wouldn't show my image: www.jamescrocks.com/images/shakespearestarshideyourfires.jpg As you can see, it doesn't work in this thread either, but t...

MPD Potentially Harmful?

Hi, New guy here :) I'm an unashamed Windows user and just downloaded the latest Windows binary to be informed (by Windows) that, "mpd.exe was blocked because it could harm your device". Checking the relevant MS page, I got this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/security/threat-protection/mi...
