Trying to get Subsonic to work on computer, but can't connect to localhost
So thought I'd give Subsonic media server a whirl after seeing on a friend's Droid, figuring its the best solution to taking all my music with me.
But the problem I'm having seems to be a pretty fundamental one: I cannot get a web browser to connect to the localhost to open the interface. This seems to be a problem with my computer, or my network. Anyone familiar with this program, or with a service that creates a local server?
I've tried connecting to 127.0.0.1, and to http://localhost, but I'm told by both Internet Explorer and Firefox that they cannot connect.
I'm running Windows XP Pro, SP3. Since this doesn't even get to the internet, I'm not sure this matters, but I've uninstalled all firewall programs for the time being. I have Avast personal antivirus running, but that's really the only protection I'm got between me an the net. I've recofigured the router to forward port 80 to the workstation, but again, the problem seems to be BEFORE i get to the network.
Any suggestions would be most welcome, and greatly appreciated.
