    desperately seeking squeezecenter

    My computer refuses to connect to local host 9000, rendering squeezecenter useless.

    I have now cleared the old version of squeezecenter and reinstalled the latest version several times but to no avail.

    The firewall is off, so I don't think that's the issue.

    Please help. This is costing me whatever hair I have left.

    Thanks in advance,

    Did it work before?

    What do you mean by "my computer" in this context? Does it mean you have
    SqueezeCenter running on computer A and you are on computer B?

    Have you tried running a browser on computer A and connecting?

    sorry about the confusion.

    i normally access squeezecenter through the web browser on my apple computer. It's a somewhat complicated system, since the music is housed in an external hard drive attached to the router (in a separate part of the house). But, for the most part, the system worked ok until a week ago when I tried, but was unable, to summon squeezecenter.

    I tried the reinstall, but it didn't work.

    u need to describe exactly your environment.

    also, try connecting to SC from a separate computer using the exact private IP of the computer SC is on.

    I still don't quite understand.

    What computer is running SqueezeCenter?
    Have you run a browser on the computer with SqueezeCenter on it,
    referencing it by "localhost:9000"
    or by name?

    What does the DNS for your Mac to tell you the name of the computer
    running SqueezeCenter?

    thanks for your input.

    i'm not sure what you mean by my environment (other than hot, humid, mid-90s). Also, how do I find the "IP" to try on another computer?

    environment:

    router? computers involved? OSs? storage? wired or wireless? etc... DESCRIBE all the gear involved, how its hooked up, what IP it has.

    i assume you have private IPs on your router. something like 192.168.1.100

    you need to know what they are for each piece of gear.

    ok, here goes:

    cable modem carries high-speed internet connection.

    the modem is connected to an apple extreme, which is linked to an external hard drive that holds my music collection. Each of those pieces is housed on the second floor.

    My transporter is connected wirelessly to this set-up, and is housed on the first floor with the stereo.

    My computer, which accesses squeezecenter through its browser, is on the third floor. All of the commands controlling the music collection can be issued from the remote that resides with the stereo on the first floor, or, if necessary, from the computer on the third floor.

    As you can see, the system leap frogs quite a bit, and is not ideal, but it has proved to be moderately reliable.

    As for IP's--I know that one appears when the transporter reboots, for example, and another, perhaps the identical one, appears in the apple extreme data.

    all that gear will have an IP, and you need to know the IP for each piece.

    is there only one mac computer? what OS ver? what version of SC are you running? i would suggest (given all that appleness) you try the latest nightly:

    http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads...ly/latest/7.1/

    SqueezeCenter-7.1-21919.dmg

    there are three computers on the network, but only one, the one the third floor that i described, is used to access squeezecenter. it runs mac os 10.4. and the version of sc is 7.01.

    are you suggesting i download each file that is on the nightly?
