Thread: uShare and Xbox360, opensuse 10.3

    Default uShare and Xbox360, opensuse 10.3

    I've been trying to get ushare to work...
    Haven't found much help for setup with opensuse.

    Here's what it outputs so far

    Interface eth0 is down.
    Recheck uShare's configuration and try again !
    uShare (version 1.1a), a lightweight UPnP A/V and DLNA Media Server.

    Listening on telnet port 1337
    Initializing UPnP subsystem ...
    UPnP MediaServer listening on 192.168.1.4:49200
    Sending UPnP advertisement for device ...
    Listening for control point connections ...
    Building Metadata List ...
    Looking for files in content directory : /second/video
    Found 112 files and subdirectories.

    Then it just stops; not sure if thats normal...

    However, I can't find anything on my 360. Not sure if its a firewall thing or what. I have allowed http server and tcp/udp port 49200. Guess I am lost now. Any help is appreciated.

    here's the conf file

    # /etc/ushare.conf
    # Configuration file for uShare

    # uShare UPnP Friendly Name (default is 'uShare').
    USHARE_NAME=goat

    # Interface to listen to (default is eth0).
    # Ex : USHARE_IFACE=eth1
    USHARE_IFACE=eth0

    # Port to listen to (default is random from IANA Dynamic Ports range)
    # Ex : USHARE_PORT=49200
    USHARE_PORT=49200

    # Port to listen for Telnet connections
    # Ex : USHARE_TELNET_PORT=1337
    USHARE_TELNET_PORT=1337

    # Directories to be shared (space or CSV list).
    # Ex: USHARE_DIR=/dir1,/dir2
    USHARE_DIR=/second/video

    # Use to override what happens when iconv fails to parse a file name.
    # The default uShare behaviour is to not add the entry in the media list
    # This option overrides that behaviour and adds the non-iconv'ed string into
    # the media list, with the assumption that the renderer will be able to
    # handle it. Devices like Noxon 2 have no problem with strings being passed
    # as is. (Umlauts for all!)
    #
    # Options are TRUE/YES/1 for override and anything else for default behaviour
    USHARE_OVERRIDE_ICONV_ERR=

    # Enable Web interface (yes/no)
    ENABLE_WEB=no

    # Enable Telnet control interface (yes/no)
    ENABLE_TELNET=no

    # Use XboX 360 compatibility mode (yes/no)
    ENABLE_XBOX=yes

    # Use DLNA profile (yes/no)
    # This is needed for PlayStation3 to work (among other devices)
    ENABLE_DLNA=no

    Hi
    Can you try running the program called tcpdump (as root) on the
    interface and then trying to connect.

    Hi
    There was another user having a problem, by running tcpdump it kicked
    into life.

    So when you try to connect from the xbox it still doesn't connect? Is
    your system 32 or 64bit?

    Hi
    I wonder if you have a similar ethernet interface to the other user?
    Ushare worked fine on 32bit/10.3 but running 64bit/11.0 it wouldn't
    work.

    Also have a read of this link, is your interface the same type?
    Problem with Realtek
    RTL-8110SC/8169SC


    I'm assuming you have the libupnp installed?

    Maybe trying the 32bit or 64bit version from here may work?

    have to check the firewall also. Are there any good links to sites that explain the firewall. I think i understand the difference between internal and external zones but i'm not sure.

    i've got the hhtp server allowed through the internal zone and assigned to eth0 (lan card). I also opend port 49200.

    got it...


    This should be in the .conf file rather than what it has
    "USHARE_ENABLE_XBOX=yes"

    however i didnt try this. I simply ran
    root: ushare -x

    it then started up and ran the xbox 360 profile that was missing all along.

    Sweet...

    Thanks for the help malcolm, steered me along the right path

    Linux rules!!!

    I was also able to view the webpage that ushare creates on my G1 phone through the wifi. This phone is awesome!!!
