Hi Folks & Experts out there, hope someone can help me with a small problem I’m having getting a 2nd PC or laptop to speak to my SB…

My configuration is like this:
- ISP provided modem / wireless router
- Switch connected to router
- Main PC, 2nd PC, NAS, SB & several ports around the house connected to switch.
- SB running in bridged mode (wireless gateway is a little to far away so connection weak )
- SqueezeCentre running on main PC

Everything works just fine as is, internet radio, & other services great, I have my music library on my NAS & this is mapped on my main PC – again works great.

The problem I have is being able to get another PC / laptop to speak to the SB – I’d like to be able to control the SB from the laptop and just cannot get it to connect.

I’ve tried wireless and I’ve tried hard wire Ethernet and I keep getting page cannot be found.

I’ve disabled firewalls on main pc & laptop, still no joy.

I’ve installed SqueezeCentre on the laptop – still no joy (message – “your player was not found)

I can “see” the SB no probs by pinging it from the laptop, but just can’t hook up via the browser…

Anyone have any ideas about what I can try?

Cheers,
Neil.

Edit - PS - A big massive thumbs up to a recent discovery of Radio Paradise! 10/10 give them a listen ;)

You must direct the browser on your laptop to the pc on which SqueezeCenter is running, not to the SB. If your main pc's ip-address is 192.168.x.x, in your laptop browser write:

http://192.168.x.x:9000
