View Full Version : Slimserver error in opening localhost connection

Thanks for the tip on starting slimserver with debugging. Where are the command-line switches documented?

I started it up in a debug window and realized that it is not hanging but gets an error on when it attempts to open the graphic window with a local host connection:

Timeout on connect to [localhost:10002]: 10035: Unknown error

It is not possible to connect to it from a web browser after that, and although slim.exe is running it doesn't seem possible to get it to initiate a playlist or play.

Any ideas as to what is going on ? or how I should debug this further?

Thanks,
Doug

Doug,

I get the same error but it's not impacting my server performance.
Maybe it's a red herring?

I think it might be the server trying to connect to MusicMagic
(although I don't have the MusicMagic plugin active) because I see
this in my log:

2005-03-23 09:29:00.8430 MusicMagic: Testing for API on localhost:10002

"c:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe" --help

This is the attempt to find musicmagic, should be harmless since it is just
timing out as it has been told to do.

do you have any firewall blocking port 9000? try d_http to check on any incoming
connections to the server, d_info to make sure its done scanning (which might
slow down an initial browser connection)
