I d/led the software for it (I dont have one, I'm doing what MPC did in the 10 best least known apps thing) and it said, Player not found (logical I dont own one) so it tells me to d/l this java app that emulates it, so I do, I start a song, I hear it perfectly on my comp. So I go to the other comp, open Windows Media Player, go to File > open URL. I type in my ip:9000/stream.mp3 and it wont work, it says Windows cant play this file! any ideas?

I thought about that, but then I'd have to download the Squeezebox software, too, making it pointless.

Are you streaming mp3's, or some other format? If you're streaming wma or something else, you need the LAME encoder to convert on the fly to mp3. Install this on your Slim server, it will convert for you, in realtime. I do this from my home machine to work, it works like a charm. Are you able to connect to ip:9000, and just bring up the web interface on the machine you're trying to stream to? This will confirm that you've got network connectivity between the two machines.
Hope this helps! BTW, you also have to setup the playlist thru the web interface once you've connected with WMP.
