That should work, especially with your firewall off.

Is there any way to make sure your PSP has not
accidentally associated with a neighbour's
wireless network? There are lots of them out
there and many are unencrypted, which would allow
your PSP to connect without you being aware of it.
If your PSP is trying to access it from your
neighbour's wireless network, you really should
get it back on your network or follow the port
forwarding instructions. But it will be easier
and much safer to make sure your PSP stays on your
network.

Also I don't know much about the PSP web browser
but I'm wondering if it's having trouble
displaying SlimServer's frames and images. Try
switching to the Handheld skin in SlimServer
Server Settings - Interface.

Does the PSP allow any sort of file sharing, and
if so, can you see the files on the SlimServer PC?

Take a look at this thread:

I don't think you'd have issues with leading
zeroes, but note the version number of your PSP -
see post #4.

Also note that user did not have a time out but a
"Communication with the server failed. A DNS error
has occurred (80410414)" message. Your time out
error indicates:

- you are connecting to a working DNS server

- your PSP *thinks* that SlimServer is there but
it either isn't at that address or your PSP is
somehow being blocked

You haven't enabled SlimServer - Security - Block
Incoming Connections have you? You can use this -
in fact it's a great idea, but you need to put
your PSP's IP address here if you want this
protection, along with the IP addresses of your
Squeezeboxes and networked computers. If you have
blocking enabled and your PSP's IP address is not
on the Allowed IP Addresses list you won't connect.

But the PSP is a handheld, no?

There are "tablet" PCs out there though.

However the Nokia 770 (no, it's not a phone)
apparently has a screen that blows most handhelds away
and is probably the equal to the PSP - well, closer
than a Palm or PocketPC anyway.

People are already developing a SlimServer skin for
it, see
http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=19369
and since it runs Linux there will be lots of Internet
tinkerers pushing it to the max and providing all
sorts of goodies for it.
