Geexbox is fine, but it just uses djmount anyway so if you have an

existing setup its just as easy to install djmount and run that. Its as

simple as:

mkdir upnp

sudo djmount -o allow_other upnp/

then browse to the directory you made (in this case upnp which is the

mount point). all upnp servers on your network will be under that

directory (it sometimes takes a little while to scan the network and for

the dirctories to appear).

here are the first two levels on my machine:

nick at sf ~/media/upnp $ ls -l

total 1

-r--r--r-- 1 root root  30 Jan  2  2000 devices

dr-xr-xr-x 7 root root 512 Jan  2  2000 media: MythTV AV Media Server

nick at sf ~/media/upnp $ ls -l media\:\ MythTV\ AV\ Media\ Server/

total 2

dr-xr-xr-x 6 root root 512 Jan  2  2000 Music

dr-xr-xr-x 9 root root 512 Jan  2  2000 Recordings

dr-xr-xr-x 7 root root 512 Jan  2  2000 Videos

dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 512 Jan  2  2000 _search
