I installed these on my 2x 2400s yesterday, and to my delight, had them working as expected within an hour. As she can now watch every reality program ever broadcast, without having to change rooms, The Boss thinks I am a genius! Thank you @DeltaMikeCharlie (for creating them) and to Keith for recommending I use them.

Just 2 questions:

I've left the default port numbers the same on both machines, ie, they both use the same port 54492. Is this how it should be? All seems to be working but I thought I'd ask.

Each machine shows the other one, twice. There's one virtual folder showing the name of the other, eg @LivingRoom and there's one showing a 12 digit number, eg @E000E9E0954D9 which I'm guessing is the MAC address of the other? "OK" on either leads correctly to the other machine's files.

Is there a way to hide the @xxxxxxxxxxxxx folder?

Thanks in advance,
Steven

I've never had the MAC address appear. Does it vanish when the other machine is off, or when TMSClient/Server are disabled?

I don't recall changing from the default port numbers, but it was a long time ago. It may be an issue only when using some of the other services, but not when opening ports between Topfields. DMC will be able to advise.

By the way, there is a whole forum about TMSServer and TMSClient here. You are much better off posting your questions in that. I will leave it up to Ian whether to move this thread.

It IS the MAC address, I've checked since getting home today.

Both virtual folders disappear when the other machine shuts down and they both reappear when it re-starts.

I did discover that other forum before joining this one, but had seen this on one of the most recent threads there and so joined this one:

In future please post on the oztoppy Forum as this one is about to disappear.

But I'll go check the thread you've mentioned. Thanks.

The link I gave you is to one of the TAP forums on this newer site.

Don't worry. There are questions all over this shop. One issue often sidetracks into another. However, you'll get more answers there, and might even find valuable gems from the past.

I will shift this thread to the "correct" section (when I get a chance).

It is now done!

If TMSServer is not given a proper name, like "LoungeRoom" then the default name is the MAC address.  My guess is that it ran once without a server name and then crashed.  This left the @MAC folder, creating a server name and running it again created the @LivingRoom folder.

Normally TMSClient cleans up after itself, but a crash would explain this behaviour.

You could try closing the client and then the server.  Delete the server name and then restart all 'round.  Shutdown again and enter the server name again.

My brain is still foggy from jetlag, so my response may not be top notch.  Also, my PC just blew a motherboard, so I will not be able to do any major investigstion into this for a week.
