Iīve set a password for my SS(PASSWORD PROTECTION).

And now when I start SS through firefox I always have to press ok button on Promt window that popup. How can I get rid of the promt window and still have a password?(maby this was a firefox Q)

One more thing if I have a password how can I "stream.mp3" with foobar. Works if I donīt set a password.

whatīs the location adress to give foobar?
http://myip:9000/stream.mp3(this adress works without password)I am not given a password promt.

I also want other to be able to listen to my stream.mp3 without knowing the password to SS.

/thx

Where is your SS located?

If, the way most people use it, it's behind a router, and not exposed to the internet, this step is unnecessary.

There are a few cases where it is necessary - I'm not saying it's never needed - I just wanted to be sure you really need to do this. Sometimes people think this is a good idea on general principals, and cause themselves extra grief for nothing.

Same as above plus stream.mp3

So I must give away password to SS so other can listen?

Would be nice if there was 2 Passwords, one password for control slimserver and one for just listen to the URL stream.mp3

From http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFAQ.htm#urlpassword :

"This is a result of an important security update" for Internet Explorer.

MS themselves document the workaround:

If you want to block access to the settings pages, you can try my NoSetup
plugin:

on a network and that's where the problem begins...

routers do nothing but forward packets. some include firewalls to provide
policy for dropping or accepting packets. nat/rfc1918 space is not a
silver bullet. if you have wireless, your router/firewall/natdevice does
nothing to nosy neighbors.

security is always a good idea on general principals. ounce of prevention
and all of that.
