I have 3 slimservers on my network, two on laptops and one on a NAS. No matter what I do my Squeezebox can't seem to see one of my laptop servers (the one I mostly used til a few days ago!). Tried rebooting everything, connecting via the IP directly, and nothing.

Any ideas anyone ?

Check for antivirus and firewalls on the Laptop. Also if there is any VPN software that may be causing this.

There is VPN software on it which prevents access to network resources from the laptop, but only while it is connected to my company LAN. Even when VPN is turned off I can't access the slimserver from the SB.

Actually that's a good call. I checked the VPN software and there was a setting "Stateful Firewall" turned on. I turned this off and suddenly I see the slimserver! Thanks so much.
