I am new to this...sorry...

1) im trying to start slimserver and it contiuously says "slimserver starting"...should this last for at this moment 20 minutes...because logically this doesnt seem right...

2) im trying to start a stream...i set up my router to open port 9000...i set up a static ip...i opened winamp and attempted to connect to the http://(localhost...my ip):9000 but it would not connect.

Im using a diffrent shell then the default windows shell...litestep but i switched bad to explorer and the same thing is happening

My computer...
AMD Opteron 144 @ 2.43GHz
4GB DDR 3200 Dual Channel
Windows XP Pro (using LiteStep shell)

Try unistalling/reinstalling. There were some problems getting the Windows installer to register a while ago but I haven't seen reports of this in a while.

Does your Event Viewer show anything? Start - Administrative Tools - Event Viewer - Application and System. Double-click on anything dealing with SlimServer and post the error here.

Also what version of SlimServer?

BTW you're not seeing anything at port 9000 because SlimServer hasn't started.
