    Unable to connect to slingbox on local network

    dfrsit

      Hi,

       

      I have just bought 3 of the Slingbox Pro units expecting these to be an easy out of the box config.

       

      So far 2 of the 3 boxes receieve an IP address from our DHCP server but the sling player software is unable to find or connect to them. I'll worry about the 3rd one later.

       

      I can ping the box and telnet to port 5001 on the box so I know they are visable on the network. Windows firewall is also disabled.

       

      Why will the player software not find them and is there any other way of connecting to them?

       

      Regards,

       

      Jason.
