Upon trying to connect with my remote speakers through Airport Express using iTunes, I have discovered the following error:

"An error occurred while connecting to the remote speaker "Living Room Stereo". An unknown error occurred (-3256)."

The problem has asserted itself following the latest set of software updates. Reading all the threads I can find on the internet, I have determined to the best of my ability that the firewall UDP and network IPv6 settings are not the problem (these are the common fixes for most people.) Very aggravating to have this happen for no apparent reason.

Does anyone else have the same issue and possibly a solution?

Upon further investigation, I discovered that my 3 year old Airport Express unit was still running firmware v6.2. The current version is 6.3, and after downloading the firmware update from Apple, the problem is now fixed.


I have left these posts here in case anyone else has this issue. Bear in mind the latest round of iTunes updates requires you to update the Airport Express firmware to the latest version as well.
