    iPhone SlingPlayer Mobile Configuration

    backspaces

      I've installed iPhone SlingPlayer Mobile on my iPad.  My slingbox at home is setup and working fine, but I skipped the internet registration part because it was failing due to the current server outage.  But my home has a fixed IP and I can manage the port forwarding just fine.

       

      So the question is: can I configure my iPad SlingPlayer without a sling account setup for it?  I just want to install the fixed IP and let my router take care of the rest.  Currently the iPad has a single configuration item, Server: dish.sling.com .. kinda odd, I don't use dish!  If I put in my ip, should that work?

       

      In general, I don't understand the need for an account on sling, but I suspect it has to do with making things easier for folks, right?

       

      Thanks,
