Richard,
After reading your instructions I managed to get softsqueeze .6 up and
running, I'm not near my squeezebox at the moment so can't comment on
the syncing. It took me a while to workout that I had to put the
softsqueeze files in the actual slimserver preference pane via 'show
package contents', you may want to have clearer instructions for those
as stupid as me!
I'll try out the syncing tomorrow evening and report back. I also am
trying to work out this whole ssh tunnelling thing so I can tune in at
work to my home setup... do I need to enable port forwarding on my
router for 22 and 9000 so it sends it through to my mac, then I guess I
type 'http://Router IP address:9000/html/softsqueeze/webstart.html'
into the browser, this is all a bit above my usual computer noodling!
Thanks,
Joe

Close. You want to run SoftSqueeze on your _work_ computer. Just
forward port 22 through your firewall to your mac. In SoftSqueeze's
preferences, enter the IP of your home router. SoftSqueeze will set up
the tunnel and forward the web interface to port 9001 on your work
machine. Just click the 'Web' button on the SoftSqueeze and it will
open up the web UI in your default browser.

When you get more comfortable, you might want to move to using RSA keys
for your SSH tunnel and perhaps forwarding some extra ports so you can
use more of the home machine's resources. I do this all the time. My
forward list is ports 22, 25, 143 and 3128, so I can use Thunderbird and
IMAP to check home mail, SMTP to send mail, squid to proxy for my web
browsing (avoiding the work webnazi) and open a shell with SSH, all over
the same tunnel, which the IT guy sees only as me listening to tunes.

Joe,

I am not a mac user, so "slimserver preference pane" makes no sense to me!
Would you mind writing some mac friendly instructions I could include on the
Softsqueeze website?

Thanks,
Richard
