View Full Version : Changing server in SoftSqueeze

I had SoftSqueeze 1.13 installed on my laptop, but it failed
to start because it was looking for SlimServer on a computer
that is no longer available.

In the "Java Web Start - Download Error" window that came up,
the "Launch File" tab contained the text of a jnlp file which
had comments describing how to change the server name, but
the name of the jnlp file was (perversely) omitted. After a
grueling search, I finally found the correct file, edited it,
and was able to start SoftSqueeze from the usual shortcut,
although it seemed to reinstall itself in the process.

Is there a better way to change the server name, or should I
just reinstall it from the web UI for the new server?

(Side note -- I tried searching Gmane for an answer, but as
often is the case, the usefulness of a search facility
depends on one's ability to guess the magic combination of
keywords to produce only a handful of results, one of which
miraculously answers the question at hand.)

I think the simplest approach is to reinstall Softsqueeze from the web
UI. It should still use all the preferences that you have set before, so
you should not lose anything with this approach.

Regards,
Richard
