ALL Linn DS/DSM products support 100Base-T connections and used on standard IPV4 network

Services, ports, protocols
The Services, ports and protocols are used by the Linn app and players in the network
Services
UPnP & SSDP (Linn DS/DSM discovery and control)
Port 1900 (UDP)
Port 2869 (TCP),
Ports 49152-65535 (both TCP & UDP)
LPEC (Linn Products Event Control)
Port 23 (TCP)
mDNS (Bonjour)
IPV4 224.0.0.251 port 5353 (UDP)
DHCP
Ports 67, 68 (UDP)
ODP (OpenHome Device Protocol)
TCP on an ephemeral port



Managed Switches
Make sure they are programmed to work in Layer-2 mode


Jumbo packet/frames networking
This is not an official standard and is not supported by the Linn DS/DSM.


Multicast or Unicast

If you are using more than six Linn DS/DSM products in the same network and want to share/Songcast the music to other rooms then make sure the LAN can support Multicasting.

If you have issues with your Routers check:

  • QoS is turned OFF (some Routers do not implement this consistantly and this may block Linn DS discovery).
  • If you have a simple network with Unmanaged switches, turn "IGMP Snooping" - OFF otherwise check IGMPv2 and IGMPv3 is supported.
  • On BTHomeHubs turn "Extended UPnP security" - OFF
  • On DLINK, within "Advanced", Multicast Streams - ENABLE
