View Full Version : SqueezeNetwork works, SqueezeCenter does not

After approx. 10 hrs with this, I'm just about ready to return my Duet. I'm using SC 7.1.0 on a MAC 10.5.4.

SqueezeNetwork works great.

When I go to SqueezeCenter in preferences, I can start the server but web access (which points to http://localhost:9000/) hangs.

Using http://127.0.0.1:9000/ works just fine. I can ID my Itunes library, scan songs, set prefs for my XM plugin, no problem.

I've tried allowing all incoming connections in sysPrefs > security > firewall. I have no other virus software running.

On my controller, for music source, I see squeezeNetwork and Macintosh.local (rather than my computer name).

If I choose Macintosh.local on the controller (in order to listen to XM and/or Itunes) the SB receiver freezes on blue and I'm stuck.

I've tried clean uninstall/reinstall along with factory resets of both units (box and controller). Note I've never had a previous version of slim software on my machine before.

I've been through a good 1/2 day via phone and email with tech support and I'm afraid they may have given up since I haven't heard back since my last email yesterday afternoon.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Any advice on what is or may be wrong (and how to fix :-) ) would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Joe

If I understand you correctly, your problem is that localhost does not get resolved to 127.0.0.1 ?

If the server were running on Windows, you should have checked the existence of the following line in file C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost

Mac has a similar file /etc/hosts
Google to find how it can be modified

I'm not sure that is a problem since I can open SC, scan my music library, include a plugin (for XM) etc. through 127.0.0.1.

Does the fact that localhost does not resolve to the above indicate the problem is there?
