Long-time Sonos user, long-time network admin. So yes, I’m dangerous.
For a variety of reasons (including but not limited to yesterday’s obsolescence news) I’ve split off a Connect:Amp onto its own Sonos setup under wireless (aka generic Wi-Fi) mode. The Connect:Amp and an Android controller are on a separate network from my main Sonos system, so there is no chance of any wires getting crossed.
The Conntect:Amp and Android controller are happy and working great with my streaming music services. So this new setup is clean, thumbs up.
I want the new setup to see my main Music Library hosted on a Windows 10 machine. As we all know, such a library is accessed via the Sonos Library Service (HTTP) as opposed to an SMB share. I configured my router to enable the HTTP traffic.
Except there is no HTTP traffic. When I add a shared music folder on the Android Controller, it assumes that is on an SMB share. I’ve verified the SMB traffic--and no HTTP traffic--in the router logs.
Soooo, how can I convince the Android Controller to discover the Sonos Library Service (HTTP) running on the Windows 10 machine?
