    Slingbox SOLO static IP setup

    LukeS_1

      Hi,

       

      Is there a way to force a slingbox solo to accept a manual IP configuration and skip the connectivity test? The connectivity test fails and then it reverts my manual IP settings which is getting rather frustrating.

       

      I don't want to connect over the internet and so don't want to forward incoming ports on my firewall. Using DHCP won't work for me as when using DHCP the slingplayer client tries to discover the slingbox's IP address using broadcasts which don't work across the internal network here as it's separated into multiple subnets.

       

      In the past I've actually had luck by killing the slingplayer application at the correct time during the setup but this isn't working this time around.

       

      Thanks in advance.

      Luke
