is there any way to remotely connect to a squeezebox and configure the
IP of the slimserver?

further, is there any way to remotely reboot a squeezebox?

these would help when trying to support a squeezebox remotely - it will
get a network connection via dhcp easily, but if the slimserver's on a
remote network you need to set the server's ip manually, which is a pain
to talk non-techies through. and sometimes you need to reboot them to
get them to reconnect

some form of magic packet perhaps? i'm assuming that you have access
through the firewall to the local network
