Is there a way to connect to multiple Slim Servers? I want to access the media files on my machine and my roommates’ machines. If there is a better way to do this, let me know. I do not have the available money for a dedicated media server right now.


thanks

I believe you can put a short cut to your room mates music collection inside yours and slimserver will navigate through that over the network.

There is a bug right now that prevents slimserver from scanning mapped drive letters, but can work when you have the UNC instead (\\server\directory\ for example). i don't know if this applies to shortcuts or just the main root folder. Though i think this has been discussed several times on these forums, so have a search about.

OK. I did not see this topic in my quick search of the forum. I'll try again when I get off work. Thx.

It is possible, and not all that hard. This enhancement request seeks to make it easier.

Details on the enhancement request.

So if I'm going to want to set up a SlimServer on my PC (for access to my MP3 library), and a SlimServer on my wife's Mac (for access to her iTunes library there), will the SB be able to point to either on the fly?

Thanks,
