    Hello all

    after the installation of the jessie image, the deezer plugin was unable to stream anymore while the radio plugin was working fine.
    It took some time to figure out that the netmask was restricted to 255.0.0.0 by the max2play configuration. Changing it to 255.255.255.0 in /etc/network/interfaces fixed the issue.

    I’m running max2play on a RPI 2 with a fixed LAN IP setup (e.g. 192.168.0.200).

    Why is the netmask restricted by default?

    Best regards

    Thanks for pointing me towards this solution – it solved my issue also.

    Much appreciated,

    Hi,
    How did you change the netmask please?
    Thanks

    Hi H,
    It’s been a while since I did it, but as far I remember, I logged on to the Pi using Putty, went to the directory outlined above, and edited the file. If this isn’t clear to you, I’ll log on again tonight and outline a step by step process for you.

    ok – So go into PuTTY, log in to the device using the IP address and login credentials. then goto the etc folder (cd /etc) then the network folder (cd network) and edit the interfaces file (vi interfaces). You will see several lines down there is a line that starts with netmask. Set this to netmask 255.255.255.0 and quit and save the file (:x). Then just close the puTTY session. That should do it.

    Regards,

    John
