So you would just give it the ip and it should just work?

I always thought a slimp3 or squeezebox would only find a server that was on the
same subnet. Maybe you can just enter the server IP manually. Alternatively,
having a local server would work, if you then created a playlist to point to the
stream of yoru remote server.

That's right. You'll need to enter the IP address of the server
manually, and then it should connect and go.

Sean uses this from home to access his music at work.

Is it possible to support names instead of just IP numbers? I use
no-ip.org dynamic ip services to connect to my machine at home now.
My IP usually stays the same for about 6 months, but you never know
when that might change.

Not right now. The player doesn't have DNS support on it. But it
could be added later.
