When I connect to my slimserver using SSH from work (with softsqueeze OR foobar2000 pointed at /stream.mp3 through a tunnel) only the first 5 seconds of each song plays before skipping to the next song in the playlist. I've tried bitrate limiting at 64kps with no change in the behavior. Does this just indicate I don't have enough bandwidth, or could it be something else? I don't have the problem at home.

I found one post a couple of weeks ago (with no responses) that had the same problem, but I'm unable to find it again. The symptoms are similar to this problem, but I have no alarms set:

Any ideas?

Windows XP (recently installed, I had the problem with Win2k as well)
2.1Ghz
1GB RAM
MP3 files (no problem with the same files at home)
Not using iTunes
Web interface not open
