I am looking to install slimserver on in a web hosted solution at 1and1.com see link:

http://order.1and1.com/xml/order/HostingHome;jsessionid=A984BB713B329C17245F2141493 02188.TC61b?__frame=_top&__lf=Static


The question I have is whether this can be done and if I should select the MS or Unix hosted solution from 1and1?

Any advice?

My thought was to load my music and try and install slimserver to the host for my domain name, then run slimserver from there and access it through a fixed ip address they would give me.

What access privilages do I need and scripts availability, etc at the host do I need to install, run and admin there?

Thanks in advance for your knowledge.

I'd be monumentally surprised if they let you install software on one of their machines outside of the web space unless you rented a server. Colocated, in ohter words.

johnheal is correct. This cannot be done in any of the 1and1 "hosted solutions". You would need your own colocated server, and even then, you would need to make sure the colocation host does not have any restrictions that would get in your way.

Ok,

Then is there a way to store my data on the web host, map a network drive (ftp? or other way?) to the remote web host as a disk drive where the music is and run a local slim server on my local machines?

That way at least I only have to have the music in 1 location on the web host and could run slimservers on pc's in multiple locations as I want it to run off the same music at different houses.

Thanks

Seems like a really quick way to use up your bandwidth allocation. I
wouldn't think you could do it, but you should be asking the 1&1 people.
