Clarifying Slimserver firewall requirements
Authored by: sdh on Jan 15, '08 06:44:50AM

If all you want to do is to listen via iTunes or some other program capable of connecting to the MP3 stream, then only port 9000 needs to be open on the firewall. Slimserver also comes with a free Java emulation of a Squeezebox, called Softsqueeze (also available separately). If you wish to use Softsqueeze to listen to your music then port 3483 is also required to be open, but you then don't need to use the web interface.

The advantage of using iTunes and the Slimserver web interface is that the connection between it and the Slimserver is straightforward http and so will work with corporate firewalls that also work outbound.
