Windows XP Pro, Netgear router, etc. I can connect to my SlimServer via http://localhost:9000, but not via http://myPublicIP:9000. Any thoughts as to why? I checked the XP firewall and the proper ports appear to be open. I constantly get a "problem loading page" error. What am I missing?

TIA!

Assuming you have a router: have you opened up the ports on the router? If you are talking about a real public IP, (not 192.168) then you will have to try from off your network: most routers will not honor the public IP from the local side.

Are you trying to connect to Slimserver remotely - i.e. from another location such as work (assuming your Slimserver is installed at home) ? If so, you may find this wiki (http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?RemoteStreaming) item helpful (although be aware that this is not the most secure way to access slimserver remotely).

Or are you trying to access Slimserver on your local network ? i.e. on another computer that is part of the same network that Slimserver is installed on ?

If so, what security settings have you used for Slimserver ? And what is the IP address you are actually trying - is it something like http://192.168.[].[] ?
