Hi,

I have managed to connect to my LMS machine (running MAC OS) via RealVNC viewer. That's great.

BUT (and here's the silly question), now how do I play music on my remote machine?

Do you have a software SB player installed at the remote machine? That is, squeezeplay or one of the others.

1. As above you need a software player on the remote machine.
2. You will have to open ports at home and direct them to the LMS server. They are 3483 (TCP and UDP) and 9000 (TCP.)
3. You will need your home's IP address. Go to WHATISMYIP.COM. This address may change. If that happens, you can use a program like trueip which will email you when your IP changes.

I'd like to make it easy but I remain
