Firewall requirements description
Simon and all, first, thank you for such a great music server and this support community.

I recently migrated from Ubuntu to Centos for my headless MinimServer which was working great for some time. The default firewall configuration for Centos was much more restrictive and I struggled a bit to get the right setup for MinimServer. Several posts on this forum helped me.

This worked for me:

Code:
$ sudo firewall-cmd --list-ports
1900/udp 9790/udp 9791/tcp 9790/tcp 9791/udp

$ sudo firewall-cmd --list-services
dhcpv6-client http samba ssh

Could I suggest a brief service/port/firewall requirements section in the MinimServer install instructions?

I understand the first list but not the second. MinimServer doesn't require DHCP, samba or SSH. MinimServer does use HTTP but I wouldn't have regarded this as a "service". It is just a protocol that any application can use over a TCP socket connection.

RE: Firewall requirements description
I should have emphasized the http service on the second list - the others are not relevant as you say. Until I enabled http on the Centos firewall I could not connect to the MinimServer status page on port 9790.

Centos refers to http as a service when using firewall-cmd , for example:

Code:
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http

Perhaps add to the install instructions:

The following ports must be open on any firewall to access MinimServer:
- Port 1900/udp (UPNP)
- Port 9790/tcp
- Port 9791/tcp

Thank you.

I have updated this section (new step 10) and this section (new step 7) to add this port information. Thanks for the suggestion.

Simon, I'm sure this will help with troubleshooting connection issues.

Thanks again for a great music server.
