    How to connect player to LMS from outside of my network?

    Hi all,

    So there's a problem. I have second place to live and I lately took one of my Booms there. I tried to configure it and.. bummer. "Enter IP address of the server" I have dynamic IP and only dyndns service where my logitech media server is installed!
    Do you know solutions for this? Maybe a hack to forward mysqueezebox.com to myhome.dyndns.org?

    A VPN is the only safe way, it has been discussed many times on this forum.

    Been in the same situation. In all honesty, you are better getting a Rpi with a USB drive for your music - and plug that into the network at the 2nd place. Better performance, more reliable, and secure.

    I have a 2Tb WiFi enabled WD Passport Drive that I use to hold a copy of my music collection, and which has LMS installed - this is my portable LMS when I'm away from home, also used in my office at work. Installation of LMS in this post, needs a little Linux experience, though!

    But I just love the physical shape and functionality od Boom device. It’s all in one, really don’t see any device that can equal these functions..

    Thanks for tip. I’m currently working on nslookup+nc/ssh using Python script solution. Will share when success.

    I sync my WD passport each weekend. It is one of my backups, and the weekly sync only takes a few minutes. How do you make your backups? It's unlikely to be more hassle than that!

    That's AWESOME! Thanks for posting this!

    I've seen those and said to myself 'that's an expensive and slow way to transfer files', but squeezing LMS onto it gives me a reason to buy one and play!
    Player: 1 x Transporter w/Trans-knob, 2 x Touch (Active, 3 x Spares), 4 x Boom (Active, 9 x Spares)
    Server: 1 x Win Server (ESXi 6.x) w/LMS, 1 x HP 24" Touch Screen PC w/LMS & SqueezePlay
    Control: 4 x w/iPeng, 1 x Samsung Note 4, 3ea x Fire 7", 8” tablets, 1 x 10" all w/SqueezeCtrl & Player (Angry Goat)
    Audio: Mark Levinson 23.5 Amp, 380s Pre, 390s CD, B&W 801 II, Acoustic Energy AE-2 signature, SOTA Sapphire table

    Computer geek/tech hoarder(!), and DAMN I love the LMS/Squeeze infrastructure!

    Finally, I think i found perfect solution. Socat utility is the answer! I am using two instances:
    socat tcp-l:3483,fork,reuseaddr tcp:my-home-server.org:3483
    socat tcp-l:9000,fork,reuseaddr tcp:my-home-server.org:9000

    On the squeezebox device you enter the local address of the machine that is running above. And that's it! Every time socat establishes connection it apparently resolves host name (checked playing with hosts file), so it works smoothly! Hooray!
    If your local machine works on windows you need this: https://github.com/StudioEtrange/socat-windows
