Listen to iTunes over the net via a free streaming server
Authored by: mesa on Jan 14, '08 10:26:46AM
I use Simplify Media (http://www.simplifymedia.com/) to connect my work mac to my home library. It works pretty well although I wonder how they plan to make money with it.

Listen to iTunes over the net via a free streaming server
Authored by: chancer on Jan 14, '08 05:36:45PM

I want to do this. I have a firewall on my router, though. How would I set up the port forwarding? Would it be for TCP, UDP, or both, and what would be the starting and ending ports?

Also, more fundamentally, when I try testing it out on the machine with local access to the music, I click the Web Access button in the slimserver prefpane. It launches a web page and I can browse my music and load it into a playlist, but when I click play, though the play link is highlighted, I don't hear anything. Any ideas about what is wrong? It shouldn't matter that the music is actually on a firewire drive plugged into that computer, should it?

Hope someone can help me out. Thanks in advance.
