Q. Both my PC and the AT box are connected to a Linksys DSL/Router using
DHCP. I can browse AT's configuration from PC without problem. I can ping
PC from AT (through browser|config|misc) without problem. The AT history
log claims that it found my PC CELLO at the right IP address.
But it doesn't seem to find any shared dir and files. If I try to play
non-existent files from the browser, another line is added to the log:
Cello Error Accessing Host - Error 53
A. Here's how I got it working finally:
I looked at my Event Log in Win 2k. I saw this strange NetBIOS browser
problem and trying to resolve it, there was an extra network connection
that I thought was at an idle state. When I first got DSL, I did not use
the Linksys router. The verizon setup software created a 'WAN network
connection" for me (there was already a Local connection to my network
After I added the Linksys box, I removed all other verizon software but
never bothered with this second 'connection'. I thought it was harmless
as it never appeared in the icon bar as the local connection does.
It turns out that it was actually active, so I disabled it. The browser
event never came up in the event log, and AudioTron found the mp3 files
right away after I restarted the box!
I confirmed that this was really the cause of the problem by re-enabling
the WAN network connection and seeing that AT now again fails to find mp3
BTW, the 'nbtstat.exe' came in really handy. When the WAN connection was
active, nbtstat.exe reported NO session (nbtstat -s). After the connection
is disabled, I see listeners and the AudioTron connected by my machine.
NOTE: If Internet Connection Firewall is enabled it could cause the AudioTron
query for name resolution to fail. Most (large?) corporations are
requiring their employees accessing the corporation network through
VPN to enable ICF.
