Cannot access web interface

Hi guys,

I am not able to access the web interface on my WDTV Live SMP from my mac.  In Windows if I go to “network” then double click on the WDTV live icon it brings me to the web interface.  

I have tried to access it via

http://wdtvlive

and

http:// 

but neither method works.  I have tried accessing it from multiple browsers.  Any thoughts as to what may be going on here?

Your slashes are backwards. Use \, not //.

I assume you are referring to the “wdtvlive” entry.  Your post, while short is lacking many details.  For example, \ would indicate I am connecting to a server and should therfore drop the HTTP.  I tried that after you mentioned it and it failed.  Anyone else have any ideas?

Doh! Sorry, don’t know where my mind was…

So, are you getting any errors or anything?

What exactly do you mean by “access it”?

To do what?

Cheers

No.  Just the “cannot connect to server” messages from safari, firefox and chrome.

Just checked again from my windows box and it can no longer access it either.  Thoughts?

I mean the web page will not display.  it says that it cannot connect to the server.  the IP address is 100% correct because of a DHCP reservation I made in the router for the WDTV.

Why I would like to access it is irrelevant. :).

Then explain, it either does or doesn’t bring you to the web interface!

The only way I access the interface is through the default password, or am I completely on the wrong path.

You are on the wrong path.  The first sentence said " from my mac".  The second sentence said " in Windows".  But now neither are working.

Well just putting the ip address of the smp into the browser, and nothing else, opens the web interface for me.

Sorry can’t help you.

That is what it was doing in windows.  Not sure what is going on.  May try restating the unit.
