I've finally got round to setting up SoftSqueeze over SSH (I'm completely
new to SSH), and am ***SO IMPRESSED***. Thanks guys for making this
technology work!

So here's my problem. I'm wanting to limit the bitrate for this SSH
connection, and so have set the maximum bitrate to 128kbps. However, when I
try and play a track now, I get: Problem: Can't open file for: ....

I'm assuming there must be something going wrong with LAME for this to
happen, since if I increase the maximum bitrate to that of above the track,
the track streams fine. I've got the lame.exe and lame_enc.dll installed in
the SlimServer\server\bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread directory, and SlimServer
web interface recognises this.

Any idea as to what I might be doing wrong?
