Bit of a newbie here, but I just got a Axim X30 and
I'm trying to figure out how to access the slimserver
using my wifi connection. Have a linksys Router
(BEFW11S4). I think it may be that I've set it up so
that it obtains an IP address automatically. Do I
need to set up a static IP address in order to access
it remotely?

I'd like to access the handheld skin from this and I'm
not having any luck.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

All you need to do is type in the IP of your music server (whatever
SlimServer is running on) with the port number and "/handheld" like this
into PocketIE:

http://192.168.1.101:9000/handheld/

I use it all the time!
