View Full Version : Initial setup problems

Part of the problem could be that if you are using home grade "routers"
which are actually NAT'ing the connections you might be double NAT'ing.

If you plug the squeezebox into the 192.168.1.x segment does everything work

Subject: [slim] Initial setup problems


I mentioned in another post that I'd had some problems installing my
Squeezebox and that I would document them.

My setup at home is perhaps non-typical:

(192.168.1.x) (192.168.2.x)
Cable Modem --> Router 1 --> Switch --> Router 2 --> switch
| |
slimserver Squeezebox

The Squeezebox is on 192.168.2.x network, and the slimserver is on
192.168.1.x network.

When I first plugged in and configured the SB I got a message about the
Squeezebox requiring a firmware update and to hold brightness button down. I
did that and the display changed to "Ready to update this Squeezebox" and
just hung there.

Now, I figured that this could be something to do with the firewall in my
Router 2 so I opened up the ports listed in the manual and tried again. This
time it worked.

Perhaps it would make sense to mention that it is necessary to have these
ports open at an earlier stage in the Getting Started instructions?
