Hi Guys,

When my Norton securit is enabled, i get the following error fromwithin SlimServer when i try to change any of the settings, fro example if i click on the Player Setting for 198.xx.xx..xx at the mail Slim Server screen...
Can anyone decipher and help me correct this?
I am connecting via an Ad-Hoc wireless network connection. SB3 play and works perfectly normally while Norton is enabled. I just cant change any settings from SimServer...
Thanks,

In order to request this URL from a Bookmark/Favorite, or some means other than following a

link from the SlimServer web interface, you will need to use a URL with a \"cauth\" security

parameter. If you received this error when following a link from the SlimServer web interface,

you will want to make sure your web browser software (including proxy servers and

spyware/privacy software) is allowing \"Referer\" headers to be sent. Below is the appropriate

URL for the URL you attempted.

http://localhost:9000/setup.html?page=player&player=00%3A00%3A00%3A3b%3A58%3A3b&playerid=00%3A0

0%3A00%3A3b%3A58%3A3b;cauth=95bce75852f97ff41db35d e59bed71a1

Because your CSRF protection level is set at 'MEDIUM', you can use the same ";cauth=" value for

any URL; this means you should be more careful who you share your URLs with.

I already did:
Server settings->security

look around the slimserver web interface.

Thought you meant in Norton...

OK, just tried, but i get the securty error when i try to click on Change...

=======
OK CSRF when turned off is fine.
Is this a recommended solution or does this pose a secutry threat?

Thanks DFK.
