Hi all

not sure whether this is the right place for this question, but after searching the forum I can't find an answer...

Is it possible to access a squeezebox library from a remote location over the internet?

What I want is to access my home library from another house, using a pc there, then stream the file to the stereo via either another squeezebox device or some other product, or possibly just connect a laptop to a stereo with good old fashioned cables!

So for example, if I was visiting my brother and I wanted to play a new track from my library, could I access my own squeezebox library over the internet?

So for reference my current set up is:
QNAP TS109II running slimserver 7.01 ish and accessed via a Squeezebox Duet.

Thanks for any advice, Ant

You sure can, it involves some configuring and port forwarding but it is doable.

Another writeup; although it's focused around use with iPeng it's valid for the SB, too:
