Not really -- it's handled automatically. Just trying to say people
could be using X11 remote and have no clue how it really works.

Perfect. Thank you. That clears it all up -- and it's working! I used
(alsaplayer -o nas), as the xmms-nas plugin isn't in debian.
I really appreciate the help. It's great to have this working.
For the Debian README, I suggest something like this:
If you want to play music on "frodo" and listen to it on "gandalf",
* on gandalf (the NAS server),
- apt-get install nas nas-doc nas-bin
- nasd -aa &
* on frodo (the NAS client),
- export AUDIOSERVER="gandalf:0"
- auplay <some wav file> (to test)
- apt-get install alsaplayer-nas
- alsaplayer -o nas
These instructions would have saved me hours; they are unfortunately
not intuitive to naive users like myself.
Now some mopping up:
1. How do I set permissions?
If I run NAS from init.d, as it is designed to do in the Debian sid
package, I get
audiolib: connection to "tcp/sigillo:8000" refused by server
audiolib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
2. How do I stop skipping?
The sound skips every time there's some processor demand; how can I
I reniced nasd on the server to an extreme -19 and the skips are gone --
any other ways?
3. How do I use apps that don't have a NAS plugin?
xawtv -noxv works, but none of the tv apps have nas plugins.
Debian sid includes the package audiooss -- is that the only way?
