Don't downgrade just yet!

I have slimserver running fine here with Squeezebox and SLIMP3
clients. I'm on an Ultra 10 (hme network card) and Solaris 9
Update 5, with patch cluster from Jan 19 installed.

There's a conflict with Cisco VPN software. Try disabling that
if you have it. Also, you might try fiddling with the server
setting "maximum number of audio bytes to send in a UDP packet."
It defaults to 1400, try cutting that to 1000 or even lower to
see if it works. If lowering that value helps, you may have a
conflict with another piece of software running on the Sun.
