    LAN connecting Raspberry Pi 3 (LMS) to Squeezbox Touch. How to?

    Hello!
    I want to connecting Raspberry Pi 3 with PicorePlayer (LMS) via LAN wire to transmit stream to Squeezbox Touch.
    LMS works on the Raspbery and accepts the Internet via Wi-Fi.
    Sharing the Pi's WiFi connection through the Ethernet port.
    Tell me, how can this be done on PicorePlayer ?

    Transporter or Cyrus streamX>CyrusDACXP>ESPAudio P09B Active filter>Cyrus X x 2>Rhapsody, Avondale and Naim cable, Kubuntu 16.10 server, various boxes for storage.
    SB3 Flycatcher 3A linear power supply. Touch also.
    Using SqueezeBoxServer (LMS) 7.9
    Also piCorePlayer>Rega DAC>B4>Avondale 260>Royd Eden Kubuntu 14.10
    also naim 32.5>hicap>140>Akroyd Coniston

    Well I have a rpi3B with LMS on that I have just set up for one of my sisters who runs a Boom with a Joggler holding the LMS.

    The OS on th pi is an updated version of

    Raspbian Stretch with desktop
    Image with desktop based on Debian Stretch
    Version: November 2018
    Release date: 2018-11-13
    Kernel version: 4.14

    I added a wpa_supplicant.conf file to the sd card and rebooted the pi.

    The SBT is already on the same wireless network

    Connected the pi and SBT with a short bog standard RJ45 Ethernet cable.

    On the SBT I went to My Music and connected to the new server.

    Then Favourites and lo... they have justed popped a lamb into the oven (Archers Omnibus)

    ronnie

    oh ah, me old pal , me old beauty! (I do miss Walter Gabriel!)

    Edit: I'll try changing the SBT connection to Ethernet.

    Well I followed the instructions here

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...c.php?t=132674

    I didn't bother with rpi-update (not really needed).

    I was able to connect the SBT to pi via Ethernet but nothing would play

    couldn't resolve IP Address
    So... time to use that backup I made of the setup...........I wonder if the lamb is still in the oven?
