From the Treo forums I gather that Slimserver can stream to PocketTunes on a Treo. Following the instructions I get nowhere.
First in pTunes I enter under Internet Audio http://(IP address of computer with Slimserver).9000/stream.mp3

On the Slimserver I enter http://(IP address of computer with Slimserver).9000/ I believe this is what the instructions say I should do. The computer then says the connection was refused--I have configured the firewall with exceptions as outlined by the Slimserver instructions.

Meanwhile the Treo stays in a loop saying it is trying to connect.

What am I doing wrong?

Not sure if it is just a typo in your message but you are putting a full
stop at the end of the IP address.

For accessing the web interface on the slimserver machine try:
http://127.0.0.1:9000/

On your handheld machine it will be:
http://ipaddress:9000/stream.mp3

You can also force slimserver to transcode the mp3 output into a lower
bitrate if your wireless connection to your handheld by doing:
http://ipaddress:9000/stream.mp3?bitrate=128 (or any other bitrate
supported by lame eg 96)
