Thanks to Simon Turner for the clue I needed to access my music files held
on my server.
I didn't realise that SlimServer was a "service". So for other people's
benefit they should create a share on the server which has access by the
same user as is logged on the the workgroup PC.
Then on the Workgroup PC go to:
Control Panel... Administrative Tools... Services
and look for the Slimserver service.
Double click on it and click on the Log On tab
Click the radio button "This account"
and using Browse then Advanced, select a user with administrative or
Network Access or Power User rights.
Stop and start the service and all should now work.

Maybe Slimdevices could put this in their user guide, or implement it by
default.
