    hi,

    As raised on the previous thread, there appears to be a problems with the Init.d script for Ubuntu. The log file i have says:
      "==== lib/Fuppes.cpp (49)
       Starting UPnP System
      
       [Error] failed to bind socke to: 192.168.x.y:port no"

    I am running Ubuntu 7.1 (gutsy), SVN-r593. Manually starting as /etc/init.d/fuppesd  works fine.

    Does any one have fuppesd working properly as a daemon on Ubuntu 7.1?
     
    I initially thought this had to do with AppArmor but am discounting this as the problem persisted after removing it. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

    Thanks.
