how do you listen your music library from work? Which sw you use to connect to LMS?

What ports you need to fw, 9090,9000,...?

From what device?
This gives an overview. It's iPeng-centric but should work for other player as well

It has to be Windows or web app.

SqueezePlay or SoftSqueeze then

I use Squeezeplay and a pair of high quality USB Active Speakers via a VPN. Works great. A VPN is essential. Port forwarding works but in all probability you will be port scanned and someone will try to hack your server.

If you have a router that supports open vpn its super easy , i use my phone in the car or at work and hotels etc , listens with iPeng on my phone i prefer to not clutter the work pc

You can also run Subsonic or a similar media server running on the same hardware as Squeezebox at the same time. Works well for me. There are player apps available free of charge for every platform.

Install Neorouter server and client on your LMS pc and the client on your work pc.

I use Squeezelite as player on my work pc and hide the command window with hstart.

http://www.neorouter.com/downloads (Neoruter free). For ReadyNAS (ARM) the Raspbian package works fine.


Control Squeezelite with standard LMS or any other controler.

Is anyone also just streaming from a dlna server? Saves complications at the client end.

I set up LMS on a Western Digital WiFi My Passport drive as described here (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?105512-Portable-squeezebox-with-a-Western-Digital-quot-Passport-Wireless-quot). I bring it home periodically and sync it with the main library, which is on a QNAP NAS.

At work I have a Raspberry Pi model B with a HiFiBerry DAC, connected to an Amptastic amp and a pair of bookshelf speakers.
