Aha, thanks for the tip!  I assume that the  option you're talking about
is the one labelled «Make discoverable network sound devices available
locally»?  For some reason it is «greyed out» and I cannot select it
(under the Network Access tab only «Enable network access to local sound
devices» is toggleable and once that one is set, «Don't require
authentication» is activated as well).  Haven't figured out why yet, you
wouldn't have an idea by any chance?

Best regards,
