    Unable to connect to slingbox on local network




      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?
