I'm using SlimServer 6.2.1 from 11/15/05 on a linux platform. When I try to connect to my slimserver:9000/stream.mp3 HUGE amounts of data pass from my slimserver to the listening application.

This happens with XMMS and WinAmp. I get the same result if I'm listening to Internet Radio or my own collection.

Any suggestions?

he's probably noticing that the silence stream is 320 kbps (which is not
exactly huge on a LAN, but is greater than zero and can hurt a DSL
upstream.

Start some music using the web interface, and use player settings to
resample to lower bandwidth.

Sorry, a HUGE amount of data is passed, but no music. It is streaming hundreds of MB per minute whereas a normal Internet stream is 128 kbps.

when you connect using stream.mp3, it will send silence until you go
into the slimserver web interface and start playback at that end.
winamp/xmms, etc cannot send any controls to slimserver; it simply
requests a stream which only sends tracks when you tell slimserver to
do so directly.
