    Slimserver Webinterface over a PSP ( Playstation Portable )

    I tried to contact with my PSP Browser to the SlimServer Webinterface, but it didn't worked! With my other Computers it's no problem! I deactivated the firewall allready, but I can't get in.

    I use a Fritz Box Router,where I activated Shared Connection at the WEP settings.

    It doesn't work with http://localhost (my IP): 9000 or http://127.0.0.1:9000/ !

    What do I do wrong??

    As long as you don't run slimserver on the PSP (which I'm sure you don't)
    you'll have to put the server's IP or address. Something like
    http://slimserver:9000 or http://192.168.1.2:9000

    Slimserver Webinterface over a PSP ( Playstation Portable )

    You should use your SlimServer IP address as given
    to your SlimServer by the router, not your public
    IP. On a Windows SlimServer computer, open a
    command prompt and type "ipconfig" to get its IP
    address.

    Also 127.0.0.1 won't work, it's a loopback
    interface which redirects the machine back to
    itself. Therefore it will work for the machine
    running SlimServer (i.e. looped back to itself)
    but it will not work for any other networked
    machine, since it will try to reference itself
    rather than SlimServer.

    I assume your PSP is associated with your own
    router. If it isn't, it's trying to access your
    SlimServer from the Internet. In your router, you
    will need to port-forward ports 9000 TCP and 3483
    TCP/UDP for the SlimServer computer, so that from
    the Internet, your public IP address will resolve
    to the SlimServer's IP address with those ports
    open. Note that this is inherently insecure
    though. Follow this thread:

    http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=19662

    but since the PSP likely cannot be configured to
    use SSH you cannot have a secure connection this way.

    BTW I should also mention that "localhost" is the
    same as 127.0.0.1, so that won't work on your PSP
    either, but will work fine on the computer running
    SlimServer.

    I know that I have to use the Server's IP Adress instead of "localhost". For me it's "http://192.168.116.23:9000" !
    I know the adress by double clicking on my network connection and it's presented in the router interface.
    When i use another computer as a client, it's no problem to use the WebInterface, but when I do the same with the PSP Browser I just get a "time out"!


    I don't know why!

    I just tried bringing up the slimserver web interface on my PSP and it works fine.
    I was able to turn on the squeezebox; the screen updates automatically; etc. Basically, it works just like on my laptop.

    Are you able to surf any websites with the PSP? In other words, does your web browser work in general?
    Are you sure you entered zeroes in the "9000" and not O's?
    Not trying to be insulting, just throwing out some ideas/thoughts.

    Yes they are really just zero's 0, no O's and it's my own network with my own WEP Key! It's no problem to surf the web reguarly, just no way for slimserver ?!?

    And I think it couldn't have anything to do with a "0 error" like in this http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=19436 post because my Server IP is 192.168.116.23.

    I don't have my PSP in front of me, but are there any browser configuration settings that the PSP allows you to play with?

    Do you have any sort of firewall software on your server box that is set up to only accept traffic from certain addresses?
    Have you tried giving your PSP the same address as one of your other computers that work as a client and then see if it works?

    Again, just throwing out some ideas,


    Mitch

    P.S. FYI, my server is running under Windows XP.

    I don't mean to derail this thread but a while back I pulled up the slimserver from the psp browser and it was terribly formatted. I was using the Default2 skin and I also tried ExBrowse3. Anybody know a skin that works well with the PSP browser.

    I was extremely disappointed when I discovered that I cannot setup a stream to the PSP using the slimserver streaming format. I created a custom rss xml file with the http://slim_srv_addr:9000/stream.mp3 address you would use to stream from the slimserver and when the PSP tried to load the file it gave the error that the server does not support this action or something along those lines.

    Both of these problems are because of software flaws on the part of sony but I was hoping somebody was aware of a hack around these issues. BTW I'm using the 2.6 firmware.

    Again I don't mean to derail the thread but I predict this issue will arise when profichiller gets his connection issues resolved.

    I also got browsing the SlimServer to work on the PSP - but it was rather unwieldy - not really very usable. The formatting was awkward and the speed the pages were updated left a lot to be desired.

    I'd meant to try again with the "Handheld" skin - have you tried that?

    I was also searching for a way to stream mp3s to the PSP - but have not been able to figure out a way to do it. If you find any interesting information about this I hope that you'll post it.

    Good Luck,

    Kevin
