Currently I have Volumio set up as multiroom, accessing a server via an nfs mount. It works almost perfectly. I’m trying to work out how I would access this from outside that network, when I am on vacation. I am very familiar with port forwarding, etc but not sure if that is the answer. In my setup, it seems the “master” (for want of a better term) Volumio instance, the one containing the multiroom group, accesses the nfs mount and then multicasts the music to the group members. Obviously I don’t care whether the music is playing in the rest of the house if I’m on vacation, so if I had to temporarily break that in order to have remote music access, that would be fine. Does anyone know if this is possible?
(The other option is to buy a 512gb sd card and copy all my music to it and be done with the whole problem, but it’d be cool to access what’s already there. I used to do exactly that with plexamp, it’s on the same server, but plexamp is lacking the multiroom functionality, which is the most important to me.)
