View Full Version : Newbie - multiple slimservers?

I have multiple computers - multiple users and multiple MP3 collections,
so I need a way to browse through all computers on the network at the
same time.

I have 3 platforms MacOSX, Win2k, and a Linux(FreeBSD?) box. So I'm not
sure about mapping, unless I use the PC...

What exactly do you mean by running two computers to one slimp3? An
easier way to get music from both machines to the slimp3 would be to
simply run slimserver on ONE PC and then map the music share from the
2nd PC onto the first one.

Tell us what it is you want to accomplish and I'm sure we can figure
something out.

I just got my slimp3 player! I hunted around for a cooler-looking old
version.....

My questions:

1. Can I have multiple computers running slimserver and search through
both computers playlists simultameously? The slimp3 only sees one
computer at a time as far as I can tell.

2. Is there any easy way to search the archive so I don't ask questions
that have already been answered?

3. What are these "nightlies" I keep reading about?

Thanks a bunch!
Christopher
