Installed 6.5.2

Squeezebox can not connect to slim server, when turning off my CA Security Center Firewall, it connects instantly.

I'm using fixed IPs on my LAN, all correct and setup on my router.

I have 2 expert rules set up and enabled on CA firewall

TCP 9000
TCP and UDP 3483

Still squeezebox would not connect when the firewall is enabled, can someone suggest something?

Make sure you have opened them for incoming connections, not outgoing.

Michael,

Thanks for your reply.

I had them open for in and out going connection. I changed them for incoming connection only, however I still got the same problem.

Is there any other setting / port I need to change / open for v 6.5.2?

For many firewall you have to make slim.exe a "trusted" app to use networks.

Slimserver also does multicasting on port 3483 - even though 3483 is open some firewalls block multicasting.

Thanks for the info.

I added slim.exe to the app list and all works ok.
I also took the expert port settings out, it still works all ok.

Thanks again
