Hi!

I wanted to open my slimserver to the internet for friends and family to browse through our music database. Naturally I don't want them to be able to change my server settings or to control my Squeezebox via the net.

Is it possible to limit the access to the slimserver to "browse only"? Any thoughts on that?

Thanks,
Alexander.

I've got a plugin to disable access to the settings
(http://www.herger.net/slim/). But browse only... You could create a skin
which only exposes the "Browse..." part.

Thanks a bunch, Michael. That's at least something to begin with ...
