I have enabled DAAP plugin in Rhythmbox, ticked the "Share my music" option, but no DAAP server shows up in my other clients (android and another PC). Am I missing something, like firewall configurations, router configurations, etc?

I can talk to people over Bonjour, so I guess avahi/zeroconf is running properly.

Maybe a firewall blocks DAAP? –  N.N. Jun 21 '11 at 14:58
    
is there any more detail you can add to this question? It's kind of vague and ambiguous at the moment –  Stefano Palazzo Jun 21 '11 at 15:09
    
@Stefano I had to roll back your title change, it was awful and meaningless. But now the question has a few more details. –  barraponto Jun 21 '11 at 15:30

What clients do you use exactly? Some of them are just shitty implemented (sadly Banshee for example). Check with netstat -tulpen | grep 3689 whether the daap server is actually running. –  dAnjou Jun 21 '11 at 15:46
    
Yes it is running. See my own answer for a facepalm. –  barraponto Jun 21 '11 at 17:47

Nothing else needs to be done. Rhythmbox DAAP works as soon as the plugin is enabled and the "Share my music" option is enabled in the plugin configuration.

However, your client MUST BE IN THE SAME NETWORK AS THE SERVER. This is, of course, a no brainer, but I just got tricked from the several networks available at my workplace.

The only other "gotcha" with Rhythmbox Daap is that you have to be logged on to the Ubuntu computer and Rhythmbox must be running.

I have the same problem at in Ubuntu 12.04. It looks like Rhythmbox only binds to the IPv6 interface, if IPv6 is enabled. This means that the music playing device must be talking IPv6. Which most of them don't.

Unfourtunately is the daap-server advertised for both ipv4 and ipv6.

While IPv6 does seem to be used it shouldn't be a problem. VLC, Rhythmbox can see the share. –  jeremiah Dec 30 '12 at 16:05
