This question already has an answer here:

I have two identical machines running ubuntu 15.04. I want to stream audio from one machine to the other.

I have followed this thread to setup my client and server. How to stream music over the network to multiple computers?

The problem is that the server is not discovered and doesnt show up in sound settings.

  • Here's another link: askubuntu.com/a/70700/3940 for pulseaudio RTP network streaming. – Takkat Sep 24 '15 at 18:08
  • Just tried that. No luck. – Martin Nilsson Sep 24 '15 at 18:37
  • Is the pulseaudio daemon running in the other machine? Try ps aux|grep pulseaudio – Katu Sep 24 '15 at 18:49

Solved it.

For some reason the server settings done in paprefs were not saved to /etc/pulse/default.pa.

Uncommented in /etc/pulse/default.pa on the server:

load-module module-esound-protocol-tcp
load-module module-native-protocol-tcp
load-module module-zeroconf-publish

Now everything works fine.

Thanks for your help!
