Boxee Box (latest firmware)
Netgear NDR3700v2 Gig Router
MacBook Pro OSX 10.6
- everything wired
Everything's been working for months. I relocated my setup to an RV using a 2nd router (same model)
Boxee won't access the the Media shares (fully scanned & ID'd via AFP). It knows the host as NAS (NAS.local internal reference). I can access then by Browse via SMB & UPnP.
Media share is read-only accessible to Guests via AFP in Mac OSX. Also a username/pass will access as read/write.
Everything can talk to everything. Mac has no AFP issues with NAS.
But Boxee can find any files. I turned up syslog to default (sending them to the IP address of the NAS--my syslog server). The only relevant message is :
May 14 18:32:54 192.168.1.7 boxee MountShare - Failed to mount [/tmp/mnt/afp_NAS.local_media]
I can't figure out what the issue is. Even if I use the privileged user/pass(r/w) with the boxee it just keeps says "LOADING ERROR - Could not access file, directory or device"
The only thing I can think of is that it is failing to find the NAS via a network scan and therefore can't resolve the NAS name to it's IP address. But I don't know how exactly AFP handles names or how Boxee finds an AFP name. At home I would have a FIOS router also, so I don't know if it was offering up a AFP-compatible Name Resolution. I used this setup in the RV last year. I didn't have issues--although I wonder if I used IP addresses instead of names. I don't think I did, but ...
