Thanks for the replies. Just to be clear the my MacBook and DSMs are both on a wired ethernet. The MacBook MacOS and iTunes can both see the DSMs as airplay devices but when I select either of the DSM as an output device from iTunes via the MacBook it thinks about it for a few seconds and the just returns to playing through the MacBook built in speakers. But when I use my iPhone and use the Remote app I can select my iTunes library on the MacBook and then I can select the Airplay output as being either of the DSM and it works perfectly. So my DSMs are configured correctly. By using Remote app it successfully changes the iTunes output to my DSMs using via Airplay. So I suspect it is a MacOS bug. I have a workaround of sorts.
I had this response from Colin @ Linn customer service : “A VPN adds extra security and prevents UPnP traffic. As the DS/DSMs and associated software require UPnP traffic, it is not possible to run a VPN on the DS/DSM network.”
OK so I updated both my QNAP servers to the "latest" Kazoo Server release which is 4.9.22 - works great on the QNAP without the QVPN running. On the one with QVPN running it doesn't show up in KONFIG or to the Kazoo client until you stop the QVPN service. This didn't happen with 4.9.5
No, the QNAP Kazoo Server never tells you of updates and neither does App Center. I think it is because it is manually installed product not from QNAP app store. Which is a real shame. Thanks for the link to the linn build artifacts page. Did the VPN issue get fixed in a release?
I will stick with 4.9.5 then for now. by the way, how do you find out when there is a new version? The Linn software download page is pretty unhelpful, offering a download of the 'latest'. So is that the one I already have, or a newer one? There are no clues as far as I can see.
