Hi, I've got a slimserver set up and I absolutely love it. Problem is, no matter how hard I try I can't seem to connect to it with windows media player (I've been using winamp to test previously) on the local machine (via local host and by looping back through the external ip...both work fine with winamp) and a room mate's machine. I don't have windows firewall on, I don't have the security settings high...I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

Do you get an error message?

Just the standard can't connect message.

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is on another computer, verify that you are connected to the network. If you typed a path, verify that it is correct. If the problem persists, the server might not be available."
