Setup;

Slimserver 6.5.4 on QNAP TS201 NAS, connected to PC via wireless router (i.e. router is ethernet cabled to PC and NAS plugged into one of the router ports).

NAS IP is 192.168.2.4
ROUTER is 192.168.2.1

All IP addresses in the 192.168.2.nnn range are enabled in the router software.

I use Zone Alarm and have ensured Slimserver is in the Trusted Zone (I've also enabled the 9000 and 3483 ports in the Windows firewall as exceptions).

SB3 plays just fine and I can see all my music files on the NAS via a mapped drive.

BUT I CAN'T ACCESS SLIMSERVER VIA THE WEB INTERFACE.

I used to be able to but haven't been near it for weeks and nothing much has changed PC wise. I've pinged the NAS but get no response, despite being able to access the mapped drive. Surfing the web is fine so I can get to any other website.

One strange thing I've noticed is that even if I turn the Windows firewall off, the status button still says it is on !

Slimserver is obvioulsy running but I can't acces it for configuration etc.

Any ideas ?

OK - found the problem.

No idea why but the IP address of my NAS had changed ! Only noticed when I connected the SB3 again and this time noticed that a 4 had changed to a 5.
Changed the path to the web lookup and all is fine.
