I've recently installed SqueezeCenter 7.2 on a different computer (a laptop) but the player cannot find it. It also cannot see the player. I tried entering the laptop IP address at the Other server option in Music source but to no avail. I can ping the player from the laptop. Any tips for troubleshooting a problem like this?

Is the laptop using DHCP or a static IP address?

It uses DHCP. The previous server was found on the basis of the computer name. The name of the laptop does not show up is the Music Source

Hmmm... is the laptop now getting the IP that used to be assigned to the old server?

You should try setting a static IP address for the laptop that is running SC. IMHO this is always a good idea. Then manually point your player atthat IP as its music source.
