I wrote this little server, and a simple client remote using Tk, using the fabulous XMLRPC: #!/usr/bin/ruby require "xmlrpc/server" require 'xmms' s = XMLRPC::Server.new(8080, '172.17.0.3') s.add_handler(XMLRPC::iPIMethods("xmms"), Xmms::Remote.new) s.serve This works fabulously, however for many calls (but not all), the client gets an exception raised: RuntimeError: HTTP-Error: 500 Internal Server Error The exception is raised, but the command (e.g. prev, next, pause, play, etc.) works perfectly. I think it might have to do with return type, because functions that return a value, like title, do not raise the exception. Should I wrap Xmms::Remote in some kind of proxy that coerces the return type of methods into something XMLRPC likes?
