Re: Stuck ?. . . Twonky server
- hey "cgjonesp900"
Huston you have a problem - Indeed your Twonky server should run
longer than 2 minutes... What that tells me is you are good to roll
up your sleeves to do some troubleshooting (see TS steps in my HowTo
I should also point for you reference that:
- You can learn something by reading the ReadMe's, the Notes, the
HowTo's and searching other web postings. Even consider sinking $10
on a Linux book (engine inside this box)
- Nobody can hold your hand to the point were this ride will be
like Windows "Plug-N-Pray". This is a user forum, not an OEM tech
What you are experiencing is the learning curve - Other people did
spend the time sweating over the same details before you and have
posted solutions & sripts for you to read.
One last thing for reference:
Twonky does not restart well on a dime. This is why the restart loop
in my script has time delay.
Often you have to wait for the TCP/UDP port to become free before
Twonky can call it again.
If you need to restart often, you may be able to find a solution
around the port logic which I ignore.
