Hi,

I am having problems with random SlimServer connection problems.

Setup:
SlimServer 6.0.2 on MacOS 10.4.1/Firefox
Windows XP/Firefox
Linux Fedora 3/Firefox

I am trying to share a 50GB music collection in ITunes on the Mac. When browsing the music collection or viewing/changing settings the server loses the connection no matter on which operating system I am on. This behaviour is fairly reproducible after 10-15 clicks on the any item. The connection stalls. Sometimes it recovers after 30 seconds, but most of the time it takes minutes to regain connection. I have tried turning on/off the caching, but to no avail.

Any other things to try in the server settings?

On an unrelated note, is it possible to run the server on the linux box and have it see my Itunes connection on the Mac?

Thanks for any help or pointers.

Robert
