But if your router has no NAT-loopback that won't work either.

Set yourself up with a no-ip.com address, or a DynDNS address (I think DynDNS charges, but no-ip is free), and use that as your server address instead of the *.subsonic.org address on your mobile device.

NAT loopback is different than DNS forwarding and port forwarding.

There's an issue with the DNS servers that Subsonic uses for the *.subsonic.org domain forwarders; the only fix would affect all of the other clients that the DNS provider has (assuming the subsonic.org domain is not their only client), so that is why they aren't fixing it.

The workaround I have found is just to go with no-ip.com or DynDNS.

I had two routers that didn't had nat-loopback support (or it was broken)
I use dyndns for connecting my phone to server.

With previuos routers xxxx.dyndns.org address didn't work in Lan-side. Had to use direct ip to server.
From 3G dyndns worked.

I have subsonic premium with registered xxxx.subsonic.org address it works from both.

With previous routers my dyndns-adress sent unknown reply...

If you can manually edit your router's DNS settings then you can make this work. And you can even on a simple FIOS MI-424wr router.

If you have DynDNS - let's say you're using a free version of noip, and your address is myaddress.hopto.org. Add a manual entry in your router's DNS table that points myaddress.hopto.org to your madsonic server's internal IP. When you're on the LAN, voila - your router sends you directly to the server, no need for NAT loopback. And when you're outside the LAN, your phone uses public DNS servers and is sent to your server's WAN IP.

I was using Ciscos cable-modem-router back then and there was no option to make any routing tables expect port forwarding.

In LAN -> myaddress.dyndns.org:4040 -> not found

Are there any plans to add the ability browse your library by ID3 tags, the way DSub and Ultrasonic can?

Client/server not showing newly added songs..

meaning:

on server a drop a few new MP3s into one of the music directories. Then, in the middle of the night Madsonic server is set to rescan every night... so next day, on android client, i select New Added, and i do NOT see the newly added tracks.

What's the problem??

What's the point of New Added if it's showing me some very old stuff, and NOT showing the new files i added??
