    Streamer Router And Firewall Settings

    Is it the graphite spaceship or the snow white spaceship? What is your computer/OS version? Either way, your wifi router requires the older "Airport Admin Utility for Graphite and Snow," and "Airport Setup Assistant for Graphite and Snow," and not the newer "Airport Utility." Unless you're doing something funky like me, the setup should be straight-forward, using Bridge Mode or a more secure firewall configuration, unless another router is involved such as in my setup here. Those are good machines, I have one of each still operational at other locations, working flawlessly. You just have to ethernet it and point it at whatever you're using as an Internet Provider (192.168.0.1). If once-removed, point it at the intermediate router (192.168.1.1), and reset the router and the modem once communication is established. Use the reset button on the router/modem rather than unplugging the device(s). If your spaceship is the only network device behind your modem, and you are using DHCP and NAT on it, make sure all wired or wifi-connected PCs are plugged into the spaceship, or the last device in the chain. The idea is, you want the Internet to see only a single IP address, representing your LAN.

    Streamer Router And Firewall Settings

    I get an error on attempting to access my streamer at http://streamer.roxio.com/heavyside, that says: "The user name is not registered." The Streamer window on my computer says, "The Streamer window is running at: http://streamer.roxio.com/heavyside." No password or logon dialogs are offered. I'm frustrated with life in general, and this problem is hardly a blip. I'm beginning to wonder if Home•land Sec•urity and evil•doers actively opposed to Net•work Neut•rality are targeting me somehow.

    Streamer Router And Firewall Settings

    I got Toast 9 yesterday, and set up streamer server last night, and it is up and working locally via an Apple Extreme wireless router. I attempted to connect streamer using my iPhone via http://streamer.roxio.com/heavyside PW:willow, and that URL passed me back to the local:10080 connection, which works. However, a subsequent reconnect of streamer only yielded the local Macintosh-2.local:10080. Then, I got the http://streamer.roxio.com/heavyside running again, but get an "/" error message (404 resource not found). My whole connection is a bit shaky. I'm connected via AT&T DSL modem, on the low-priced scheme ($19.95/mo) connection speed 768 Kbps (downstream) 384 Kbps (upstream). I have an old Linksys wired router model BFSR41 with an Airport Extreme behind that, connected in Bridge Mode. I enabled UPNP on the router, but I'm not sure if that is done correctly. It could be that the connection speed is at fault, and it could also be that I need to enable a domain name or proxy on the DSL modem, with all that behind it. Any thoughts on this?

    Toast 7 (and 7.1.2)

    I downloaded the b7 update for Popcorn 3, and was pleased to find that it opened and was functional. Some operations were really slow, however, and I was looking forward to the "real" update. Popcorn 3.0.2b7 dutifully notified me that a new update was ready for download today, and I downloaded and installed it. Opened Toast 8.0.1 and it also notified me of an update available, and I downloaded and installed Toast 3.0.3 also today. Thanks, both for the beta download and for the new updates, which seem to work beautifully and is much faster than the interim beta update was, in the case of Popcorn. I applaud the new features of the Toast v.8.0.3 and Popcorn v.3.0.2 updates. I hope you are moving forward with the unsupported Toast 7 and Popcorn 7 updates, for those of us not yet ready to upgrade.

    No Leopard Patch for Toast 7

    Okay I bought the new Toast 8 AND Popcorn 3. Downloaded and installed them both, and entered my registration CD-Keys for each product. I even came back on and registered them both on my Roxio profile. I thought I was in hog heaven and home free. Toast 8 was installed and worked okay. Made a disc image which wrote to disk okay, then I went to Popcorn 3 to burn the Toast image to a disc. When I went to open Toast 3 I did my usual dragging the image file to the new Popcorn image on the Dock bar. There was a brief jumping and highlighting as if to load, then nothing. I then tried clicking on the Dock image, then the Popcorn 3 file itself in the Applications folder, and nothing happens, except for the brief highlighting (darkening) of the Finder when an app first starts up then it blips out and doesn't load. Why did Popcorn 3 open and accept my registration when I installed it, then refuse to open again ever after? Okay, on thinking about it, when I dropped the Popcorn 3 folder into Applications, I noticed that it was named different and wouldn't overwrite the earlier product. Since there were no instructions to remove Popcorn 2.1.2 included, I didn't think about it and didn't dump the older file. Also, I had in mind possibly patching Toast 7 & Popcorn 2, if the patch becomes available, so I just left it there. In the course of the evening, I pushed several discs into the MacBook Pro's internal DVD, and Popcorn popped up. I assumed it was Popcorn 3 using the old prefs file, which was set to open Popcorn when a blank disc is inserted, and simply closed Popcorn without looking at it. It wasn't Popcorn 3 but Popcorn 2 which was opening while I wasn't paying attention. So I dumped Popcorn 2 and Toast 7.1.2 into trash (to prevent it, too, from accidentally opening), then tried again; same results, no Popcorn after a brief highlight. So then I dumped the Popcorn 3 app, emptied the trash (including old Popcorn and old Toast), reinstalled Popcorn 3 from the file I downloaded, and it acts exactly the same way; Popcorn 3 will not open. My downloads were very slow, since the only thing I have available to access the Internet are random WIFI hotspots, so I suspect that the file I downloaded is corrupted somehow. I also downloaded and applied the Toast 8.0.1 update, when Toast notified me of its availability (thanks). Anyway that's all I know to try next, downloading a replacement file, which means downloading my purchase again and I don't know if I can, and I don't know if I can upgrade without the earlier Popcorn 2 being on my hard drive (since I deleted it). The other thing I have thought of doing is removing the Preferences file for Popcorn, and I don't know how that will work and I don't know if I can find it to remove. HELP! I don't know what to do. I've re-downloaded my order using the Order Search page, and re-installed it over the earlier Popcorn 3 install (overwriting the earlier install) and it is still not working; not starting up even to accept my serial number. I compared the earlier download with the one I just downloaded, and sure enough, they are different sizes: 1st download, 159,476,381 bytes; 2nd download, 159,474,835 bytes. I also downloaded the Toast 8 Upgrade again, and they are exactly the same, at 147,381,635 bytes. Until I can get it working, I am stuck with a working Toast 8, and a useless Popcorn 3 which cost me $29.95. Next I guess I will try finding the preference file and deleting it; any help (including where Popcorn installs its files) will be appreciated. I hope this is helpful to someone, in here or out there. This could be a Leopard glitch; I'm hearing about some serious problems, including http://tomkarpik.com/articles/massive-data...bug-in-leopard/.

    Toast 7 (and 7.1.2)

    I've used Toast since way back on my first laptop, a Mac Duo, I believe with a $2kx2X external drive (wtf, 10-12 years ago?). I want to upgrade to Toast 8 and Popcorn 8, and my wallet is pinched since I just installed Leopard and the new iLife 08. Is there a link up front for d/ling Toast 7.1 again so I can try that workaround for 7 (I have Toast 7.1.2 installed). How soon do you think the 7 patch may appear? I probably have an older copy on a disc somewhere, but I hate to go looking for it. Dunno if I can find my registration password, either, but I probably can. I get the same error most are reporting the Apple Error -13780, everything works but burning to a disc or writing an image file. No flaming here, guys, in spite of the frustration. Roxio has always been wonderful, and stuff happens (to quote an unmentionable VP in re: the looting of Iraq; look there for questionable practices, if you will).
