Since Slingmedia standalone works on your friend's private laptop, I'm betting that the web add-on will also work on his private laptop. I'm also betting that your company has installed a block on accessing the SB through its network computers. So perhaps the workaround for you would be to purchase your own private laptop and access your SB outside of your company network?
Thanks for replying.
Maybe I forgot to say clearly that the webslingplayer app was installed after agreement with my companies admin. my companies laptop was with me in Asia all the time and it worked perfectly during my travelling. I made connections through the websling player on hotel networks, so not through my companies network. These hotels I visit frequently, are in big cities all over Asia and their networks are open to receive the slingbox signal, so is my friends privat home network which i tried (and failed). As I haven't been back to holland, nobody could have installed a block after this started and my companies admin acknowledged to me that there were no changes from his side. It begun about 2 weeks ago and in the meantime I also have tried get the webslingplayer to work after I switched off my firewall (windows) and antivirus (avast) as I might feared that they are blocking the slingbox after an update but no result.
I pinged the slingplayers IP and it seems it is albe to communicate well with my companies laptop, It is just not going any further then the initializing screen
Buying a second (privat) laptop is not an option as I need to travel light
