Softsqueeze needs to access the Slimserver using tcp ports 3483 and 9000. If you are accessing your Slimserver over the Internet you would be advised to use a VPN or ssh tunnel.

You need to trouble shoot
You will get better audio output on Windows using the Direct Sound support. To do this you will first need to download and install Java 5.0 (also know as Java 1.5). Next time you run Softsqueeze in the preferences menu under Audio mixer you will be able to select Primary Sound Driver.
You can run Softsqueeze without the user interface (commonly know as headless) by specifying the Slimserver IP address on the command line. For example
java -Dserver=127.0.0.1 -Dskins=headless -jar Softsqueeze.jar.
The keyboard shortcuts in Softsqueeze are similar to winamp and xmms.
|L||Add to playlist|
|Ctrl + D||Size|
|Ctrl + P||Options|
|Ctrl + W||Remote window|
This is caused by a bug in Java. If you upgrade to Java 5.0 (also known as Java 1.5) then the windows will move smoothly.
This only applies to really old version of Softsqueeze; In the preferences screen make sure you have selected the correct Slimserver version. If you keep getting this message, 'forget this player' from the Slimserver web page.
