    Squeeze Network & Other Problems

    A few things:

    1) When the computer running Slim Server is off, I cannot acquire any internet radio from the Squeezebox2 using the remote. When the server is off, the display on Squeezebox2 is blank. I hit power, and it attenpts to connect to slim server and then drops after a few seconds, going blank. No other options exist, other than configuring network settings. Am I missing something?

    2) support@slimserver.com is not operational. I've received several daemon message failure notices for it. Anyone know of an active support email address?

    3) I definitely have Zone Alarm (free) problems. Randomly, slim server does not want to start up with Zone Alartm running. When I turn off Zone Alarm, the problen goes away completely. But, sometimes, slim server will start up when ZA is loaded. ZA free does not seem to offer the fine-grained control needed to adjust its port settings. (Yes, I've given permissions for all slim devices and software to run through ZA). Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help.

    You're missing the introduction of the SqueezeNetwork. I have no idea
    about the launch date, though.

    This is supposed to be the address. Could you post the error message you
    get?

    slimserver controls the squeezebox completely, so when the computer is off, the
    display will be blank. Squeezebox2 is capable of running without a server,
    eventually, but SqeezeNetwork is not up and running yet. When it is, the
    announcement will be made here.

    no ideas on this one. I hated zone alarm and quickly banished from my system.

    No. The ability to get Internet radio without SlimServer running is
    not yet implemented, though should be available soon.
