A bit more info on my problem, I still can't get the squeezebox player
to see the server just get the server software not found message, if I
try to start the server by running slimserver.exe it just hangs at the
splash screen, I can run the server from localhost:9000 but there are
no player settings, I can ping the player no problem.

I'm running XP with 5.1.5 of the server and the the squeezebox is wired.

Any ideas??

Do you have a personnal firewall or did you activate the XP firewall on the
network connection? I had 5.1.5 + wireless running on XP Pro without problem
(but I disabled the XP firewall in the network setting, and only used my
personnal firewall setup).

A reminder that XP is known to activate its firewall without notifying
the user. This has happened to me at least twice on the same box after
installing OS updates. So even if you disabled it before, check it
again.
