Is there an easy way to alternative between 2 (notebook desktop) computers and 1 squeeze box with out having to go thru the whole installation process each time.

From the main SB menu, press and hold the left arrow key on the remote. That will bring you to a set of options that will include setup, logging in to SqueezeNetwork, and logging in to each of the slimservers the SB finds on your network. Scroll to the laptop you want, press the right arrow to connect.

If you want to do it using a web interface you might give ServerSwitcher a
try:

If Slimserver is resident on the desktop you can use your laptop and browser and http://192.168.0.136:9000/
(or whatever the ip address of the squeezebox is)to access slimserver. It does not need to be installed on both computers.

The above scenario presupposes your computers are networked.

Awhile back I suggested having a plugin that could make one SlimServer a client of another, but nobody seemed interested. I currently have two SlimServers running, one for my wife's iTunes collection and one for mine. Sure, it's easy to alternate back and forth, but wouldn't it be nice to browse the other seamlessly?

I originally wanted to connect my parent's SlimServer to mine, but there really isn't a practical way. The best I could do is setup an SSH tunnel and use stream.mp3, but that leaves a lot to be desired.

Thanks every one....the 2 solutions that seeem to work best for my needs were;

1) use remote to access sb network and chose one of the my two IP address ( desktop or notebook)

2) was enter the others ip address in place of local host i.e. http://<other pc ip address> :9000/ access the others computers slimsever...

agains thanks very much!!
