View Full Version : Can only access web interface on localhost

2007-08-09, 03:29

I've just installed SlimServer 6.5.3 on a clean AMD64 Ubuntu 7.04 server.

The squeeze box connects to the server fine, but I'm unable to connect to the web interface from a remote machine. Netstat tells me that the server is listening to port 9000, but only to connections from localhost.

I'm running slimserver as a non root user. If I run slimserver as root, I can connect to the web interface from a remote machine.

Does anyone have any ideas how I could enable remote access to the web interface without running the server as root.

Ah ha!

Being new to Ubuntu I'd assumed I'd grabbed the latest server release... looks like I only got 6.3.0-4 as this is the version in the feisty package repository: http://packages.ubuntu.com/feisty/sound/slimserver

I've not got access to the server at the moment, but hopefully using the latest server version should sort me out.
