And you should ensure that the firewall doesn't block udp traffic
to/from mDNS broadcast address port 5353. I use
firestarter on my linux box and it doesn't have gui to do that - I had
to add a couple of lines to its config file (see ).

Both machines have (192.168.1.x) IP addresses - handed out by dhcp running on the router, both have netmasks. iTunes on the XP machine can see the share music from rhythmbox on the Linux box so I think the network is ok. I don't  have  a firewall installed on the Linux box (to the best of my knowledge) but  how would I go about verifying that there isn't some bit of code somwhere doing some blocking? From the lack of activity in the avahi-daemon log it would suggest that these UDP broadcast packets are being filtered somewhere in the Linux boxe's network stack.

Thanks for all the help so far, hope I'm not boring people,
