Not even once.. I've exhausted most of my options and tried just about
everything that I can think of to troubleshoot the issues. I'm using
slimserver (which works, but will not connect to the player) a netgear hub
and a netgear vpn router. I can see the player on the router, and can ping
it. I've opened all the ports and checked the firewall. But the server
software will not see the player.. Help a newbie out...

This is almost certainly a problem with the VPN setup. Do you have more
than one computer on your LAN? If so, are services like file sharing
working correctly between your machines? My guess is that our discovery
requests are not getting through (UDP broadcast on port 3483).

Try simplifying your setup to narrow it down. I would disable the VPN
and the firewall and see if it works then.
