EvoX is finally up and working on my Xbox and now I am trying to set up a network with XBMP. I downloaded the complex Xbox Media Player 2.4 from xbins and transferred it to the E partition of my hard drive. But when I try to access my media files via RelaX v0.75 (also downloaded from xbins) by going to "My Videos" and then "Network (XNS)," nothing happens. It is as if I didn't even push a button. I have one complete share in RelaX called "Media" since everything else is organized into subfolders. In the "config.xml" file, I changed address, subnet, gateway, and all the XNS portions of the share sections in pictures, videos, and music, but nothing else. For the network settings, I just used what it said in the settings menu of EvoX. Could someone please tell me how to get my network up and running? (FTPing via FlashFXP has worked fine for me.) Here is my config.xml file...

<configuration>

<media>

<map>C:,Harddisk0Partition2</map>
<map>E:,Harddisk0Partition1</map>
<map>F:,Harddisk0Partition6</map>

<!-- Xbox partition table reference for mapping other drives -->

<!-- Note! Do not map the DVD-ROM above as it is auto mapped -->

<!-- 'C', "Harddisk0Partition2" -->

<!-- 'E', "Harddisk0Partition1" -->
<!-- 'F', "Harddisk0Partition6" -->
<!-- 'X', "Harddisk0Partition3" -->
<!-- 'Y', "Harddisk0Partition4" -->
<!-- 'Z', "Harddisk0Partition5" -->

Could somebody please help? sad.gif I am going through a router if that makes any difference and have even tried putting the direct URL of the folder I wish to share on my computer, but still nothing happens when I go to "Network (XNS)" Also, I am using the RelaX guide pinned in this forum, even though it refers to v2.3 of XBMP. I am also using the v2.3 XBMP guide on the official website. Does this matter? Should I be using XBMP 2.3 instead fo 2.4?

pretty sure you need to use the XBMSP protocol to share with relax...

One more question: Am I setting up the network right? Do I just copy the subnet, gateway, and IP from the EvoX settings screen? Also when I am setting up the streaming network, do I use the actual IP of my computer or the IP of my router?

Will RelaXwork through a firewall and router? If so, should I use the actual IP of my computer or the "fake" one that is put out (I am not sure if this is due to Norton Internet Security or my router).

In the config.xml, you need to put the actual IP address of your PC (under XNS).

Both the xbox and pc are on the LAN side of the router, so communication between them should not be blocked. If there is a software firewall on the PC, you may need to configure it to allow the xbox to connect to the PC. You may need to open port 1400 for RelaX to be able to connect to the internet (WAN). Also, RelaX has a feature for configuring what IP addresses are allowed to connect to it (e.g., 192.168.0.*).

2.3 and 2.4 should both work fine.

I hate using Relax. so I just use normal Windows shared folders.

here's the settings of my config.xml:
CODE
     <share>
       <name>Celeron's CD Drive</name>
       <url>smb://Workgroup/Celeron/CD/</url>
       <cachesize>256</cachesize>
     </share>

you might notice that I removed the username:password part. that's cuz I don't use passwords on my computer.
"Workgroup" is my workgroup name.
"Celeron" is my computer name.
"CD" is what my CD drive is shared as in in Windows.

just make an entry for each shared folder on your computer.
piece of cake. smile.gif
