You can have a maximum of one SlimServer running per device,
but you can access its web interface on as many computers
as you like, it runs on port 9000 as standard.

And just how does one accomplish that? Going into a browser on another
machine and enter http://localhost:9000/ does cut it.

What is the proper syntax?

http://iporhostnameofmachinerunningslin:9000/

IE -

http://slimserver.myhomenetwork.org:9000/

or

http://192.168.1.17:9000/

(for the first to work - the hostname - it has to resolve, either from
an /etc/hosts file or a lan dns or whatever the windows equivalent of
/etc/hosts is. For the second, you just need to know the IP address of
the machine running it)

Hi Mike,

I've tried the http://192.168.0.XXX:9000/ and the
http://my-computer.local:9000/. Neither worked. The other machine just
sat their spinning it's wheels. However, it never did 'timeout'.

Regards,

Chuck

Might you have a firewall blocking remote port 9000 access?

Hi Again, Mike,

Thanks for the tip.

I had to implement access to port 9000.

Regards,

Chuck
