I have Slimserver installed on a Widows Home Server machine. I use a Macbook laptop. Does anyone know how I can get into Slimserver on the WHS from the Macbook so I can remote administer it.

If the WHS has a firewall, make sure port 9000 is open or set an exception for Squeezecenter.

Then point your web browser to either:

http://whs ip address:9000/
http://your_whs_name:9000/

If web access is not what you're after - I'm not sure if there's a Remote Desktop Client available for Mac's, but if there is not, check out VNC.

Thank's for that. I was trying the ip address/9000 yesterday but it didn't work, but tried it again today and it is now working.

Is the WHS using a static or dynamic IP address? Dynamic might explain why it works one day but not the next if the WHS or the DHCP router has been rebooted.
