    You also installed it, right?

    What operating system are you running?

    Are you using port 9000? Double-click on the icon in the tray, which should bring up a web browser connected to the server.

    http://localhost:9000

    or from another machine on the network:

    http://<machinename>:9000

    or

    http://<ip_address>:9000

    Check TaskManager to be sure slim.exe is running. Check Event Log for any slim service failure or error.

    Start->Run and enter eventvwr.exe.

    If you don't have Start->Run available on your system, use Control Panels->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer.

    Try also disabling Windows Firewall temporarily to see if that helps, or any of your AV/Firewall software.
