Hi. I got my LMCE 1.1 system on a VMWare up and working on Kubuntu 7.04. Now I'd like to connect to it using a windows Orbiter, but thats not really working.
I followed this tutorial to use Windows as an Orbiter: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Control_LinuxMCE_using_a_Windows_device_as_an_Orbiter
In the Pluto admin panel I added a new Obiter and typed in the IP of my Windows PC: 192.168.0.28. But I did leave out the MAC-Adress. I don't know how to find this addres out? Could you help me with that?
Then I did a quick Router reload and downloaded the Orbiter Win Installer for Intel/AMD x86 (normal). When I start up this program I have 2 fields: the Device ID (I think it's 29 for me) and the Router IP. I think the Router IP is the address of my LMCE Core, is that right? I go to the web-admin-page with 192.168.0.80/pluto-admin, so I entered 192.168.0.80 in my Orbiter-programm. When I klick apply there's a popup saying: This new Orbiter is ready to go. But all your divices need to be reloadet before you can use it.
So I klick Yes - Reset i now.
But then there's an Error in the log: Failed to connect to DCE Router. I'll try again in 2 seconds...
When it's finished, the popup comes up again: This new Orbiter is ready to go. But all your divices need to be reloadet before you can use it.
Here's a screenshot showing the LMCE Admin Backend and my Windows Orbiter: http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/9509/lmceproblemjf6.jpg
My second Problem is, that I don't know how to add Media to my file System. When I go to Media->Media Files Sync I can brose through my file system of my VMWare and I can add files to the Database by klicking on the button behind those files.
But how do I add files not stored on the Core-PC? I got one Windows PC with all my Pictures, Videos and music. How do I add these files to LMCE? I couldn't find anything in the wiki, but I'M pretty shure I has to be mantioned there anywehre...Could you help me? I think I have to mount different network shares in a specific directory. But how do I do this?
When I first tried out LMCE I thought, that every Media on all the PCs in my LAN would be fond automaticly by LMCE and I culd watch it then...but this doesn't really work!
I hope you can help me with my 2 problems! Thx.
