I want to run my squeezebox from a laptop in my listening room. My Slimserver is downstaris and theSB3 is in a closet.

How do I access slimmserver from the lap top to do this? I tried putting in the ip address with no success.

Here is how I do what you want to do:
http://192.168.0.136:9000/

Just change the ip address to the address of the computer slimserver is on.

Works every time

You must open the ports 9000 and 3483 on the server computer (no need to mess with your laptop or router firewalls).

If you properly opened the ports for slimserver on your router and firewall there shouldn't be any problems.

I have slimserver on a headless XP machine. I always access slimserver using my laptop.
