    That looks like it did the trick MarioM! Thank you. No more 404 error, ShairTunes2 shows up in the advanced tab drop-down menu now.

    I’m also getting this warning in the logs when I reboot.

    I recently had to start from scratch when the PI started acting up. I once again ran into problems trying to get the mount point from my Ubuntu share connected via the Max2Play GUI interface. I was hoping that this ancient thread of mine had the answer but instead I see I just responded that I made it work.

    Having now run through the same steps as I did previously to solve the problem, I wanted to leave the solution here. The mount type for Ubuntu samba shares is (for me at least) NFS. nope…at least, not on it’s own.

    I wish there was some feedback on that errors. Instead of „Mount point not created“, perhaps „No share of type CIFS on this connection. Try NFS“.

    Answer: Use the IP address and not the server name. While I can easily connect to //media-server/music using the credentials created for M2P from a Windows machine, the Raspi requires in be entered with the ip address – it can’t resolve the server name for some reason. And it helps if everything is spelled correctly.

    So – for my future self: Use the IP address, spell the samba folder name correctly (case matters), yes it’s cifs.
    It’s always so easy to watch the video, but that doesn’t work here for whatever reason.

    The nightly 7.9 build was giving me no end of grief with the „no tty no askpass“ error that refused to start the server. I moved to the Logitec 7.9 build and the problem went away.

    Loading up Spotty, I had the same perl error and resolved it on the Raspberry Pi. SSH into the command line, and
    sudo apt-get install libio-socket-ssl-perl Allow it to do the install, restart the Squeezebox server from the Max2Play Squeezebox server tab and no more issues. The Connect feature works – I can play spotify from the interface or from the Spotify app on my phone.

    I came to the forum this evening for a similar issue. I don’t know that the Max2Play pi is handing out ip addresses, but it suddenly has 2 – (expected) and I would like to understand this behaviour for sure.

    I copied a track from the samba share /mnt/itunes into /mnt/mpd, changed the folder and track permissions to 777 and scanned the folder with success. Then I changed the permissions to those shown in /mnt/itunes for both directory (770) and track (540), re-scanned the folder and the music disappeared from LMS.

    All folders needed on /mnt/itunes needed to changed to 775, at the server.
    sudo find /srv/nas/itunes -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;
    All files had to be changed to 664.
    sudo find /srv/nas/itunes -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
    Obviously this needed to be done from the Ubuntu server end as Max2Play user pi will not be a sudoer on the network server.

    I grew frustrated with things, and started with a fully clean install of M2P, careful to avoid any of the errors I’d made previously. I successfully used the filesystem mount tab to mount the samba from my home server with no drama. Once again however, it did not show up under the LMS /mnt/ folder drop-down so I added it manually. Once more, the scan shows a permission error

    I’m not sure where to proceed from here unfortunately, but will update this thread when I eventually sort it out.

    Thank you Heiner. I will try this when I am home this evening.

    What does using the Max2Play GUI form do that isn’t done by adding //<IPaddress>/<ShareName> /<mountPoint> cifs user=<userName>,pass=<passwd> 0 0 to /etc/fstab?
