Bill --

If you're just using the Panther System Preference Sharing/Firewall pane to
open up the port, I found all I needed to do was create a new setting --
which I called "SlimServer" ;-) -- which just contained "9000, 9090, 3483"
as ports: without any specific reference to UDP.

I must admit, though, until my wife spotted the reference to port 3483 in
the troubleshooting section at the back of the manual, I was as stumped and
frustrated as you... -- having opened only 9000 and 9090 as detailed in the
main section of the manual.

Once you get it working, though, it really is an amazing piece of kit!

HTH...

Interesting, I am running panther plus airport etc, & I only have port
9000 open - mind you I am using SlimP3 player ...

The only other "music" service I have open is iTunes sharing - 3689

So is there a different between the hardware in this area ???

Tibook ----> airport ----> hub ------> slimp3
|
----------> Linksys rtr ----> cable modem

Firewall on,....... no problems re finding hardware ... DHCP serving
from rtr

Cheers
