Can someone provide me with the 30 second overview of how to use softsqueeze and ssh to listen to my music from outside of my home network.  I've already enabled ssh and ssh to my server from outside.  Do I need to open ports other than 22 for softsqueeze to work in this way?

Don't know if I can stretch it out to 30 seconds...

Install the Java runtime on your outside machine.
Download and unpack SoftSqueeze.
If Windows, double-click SoftSqueeze.jar. (if not, open a shell and
type 'java -jar SoftSqueeze.jar' after changing to the directory where
SoftSqueeze was unpacked)
Fill in the host at the top of the preferences panel.
Check the box for "Use SSH Tunnel".
Put in your username.
Put in your password.
If you trust it to be safe on your machine, chack 'Save Password'
Optionally, tell SoftSqueeze where your SSH Private Key is. If you
don't know what this is, don't worry.
Click OK.
Start listening to tunes.

Michael,

No you only need to open port 22, all the connections between
Softsqueeze and the slimserver are tunneled over this port. You need to
open the Softsqueeze configuration dialog, enter the public ip address
of hostname of your router in the 'slim server' address, check the 'Use
ssh Tunnel' checkbox and enter your ssh username and password. Assuming
everything is setup correctly Softsqueeze will then connect to you
slimserver.

Regards,
Richard
