Ok, here is the situation, I am having trouble hooking up to an old squeezebox 2. Everything was working fine, but I changed the computer that is the server. Here are some details:
Server is MacBook Pro OSX 10.6.8
New install of LMS 7.7.2 - r33893
Squeezebox 2 wired
Macbook is hooked up via ethernet to the same network as the squeezebox
audio files are on an external drive

LMS is running fine on the Macbook, it has scanned the external drive and all the audio files are available
Squeezebox turns on, get an IP address and then I get "cannot connect to server"

I have already tried these things:
I have disabled firewall software, and apple's firewall
disabled little snitch
disabled virus software
done a clean install of LMS
turned off all the routers
restarted the macbook pro

ANy other suggestions?
I know the setup works because I have used it very recently with a different computer as the server, so the only thing that has changed is the server

Okay, still no luck with this.
I have disabled all antivirus and firewalls,
enable port forwarding
Also,
Softsqueeze is working of the server computer
and I can play music from the server with Roku using "Main Squeeze"
But nothing from my squeezebox 2 ((it may be a 1)

Has the upgrade to LMS 7.7.2 disabled conectivity to the old squeezeboxen?

any help would be appreciated.
