    Is there software to allow this

    Good morning all, i just wonderd if there was any software similar to squeeze commander that will run on my laptop (windows) and control my squeezebox. I have the server software on my small server hidden away but would sometimes while using my laptop in the living room be able to change the music etc. Just a little interface that allows you to pick album and alter volume would be suffice.

    Thanks
    Steve

    TBH, what's wrong with using the web-interface on the Server?

    HTTP://<you server's ip address>>:9000

    Usually something like:

    HTTP://192.168.1.4:9000

    OR try

    HTTP://myservername:9000

    What is wrong with using the WebUI included in SBS? It doesn't matter what Box is running SBS, any Laptop, PC, Netbook, or Smart Phone can get to your server as long as its got a network route to get there IE WiFi in your home or Internet connection at work.

    +1 to PSKI for he is correct in suggesting using any web browser on your network by typing in the URL line http://<your SBS Server IP address>:9000
    This allows full control of the Server and ALL Squeezeboxes on your network.

    My daughter had a problem at home using Squeezebox while the Better Half and I were at the beach over Thanksgiving. So I just logged into the home SBS Server over the Internet to see what was going on and corrected the issue. All this takes is knowing the IP Address assigned to ones Internet connection and adding :9000. This is just slightly different then using the 192 or 169 IP address that your home route assigns to your SBS Server when inside ones own WiFi Network.

    Enjoy

    You could use this also

    I would just use the web interface though, much easier
    Boom - Controller - Touch - Radio

    That's how I do it. As simple a solution as you can find. No additional software required.
