Winamp Remote promises to allow you to “get your music anywhere”. Which is exactly what we need. I must stress that this is Beta software, but I didn’t have any issues with it and I believe it to be in the final stages.
Installation was swift and easy, and before I knew it – I was presented with a login screen.
Creating an account was painless and a new icon found its way into my system tray.
Configuring is simple, just tell it the folders where you keep your music!
Advanced configuration, if you can call it that, is pretty basic – just an adjustment of ports, should you be having problems (such as more than one instance of Winamp Remote on a LAN).
If your router supports UPnP, then you shouldn’t have to touch a thing to get it working. However, if you’re a bit of a security freak like myself, then you’ll probably have to do some port forwarding instead. But if all else fails, the data can be passed directly through the servers.
