Hi all,
Nice plug-in here...I'm finding it quite useful.  It's great once WinAmp is already running on the remote computer, but is there an easy way to (remotely) launch WinAmp on the remote computer if it's been shut down?

Thanks,
--James in S.D.

It might be overkill, but you can try setting up a VNC server. Check out the following free VNC resources for more info:

<http://www.tightvnc.com/>
<http://ultravnc.sourceforge.net/>
<http://www.realvnc.com>

There are a ton of others, but these seem to be the favored ones.

There are downsides to running VNC... the biggest being the security risk that it presents. I personally use TightVNC over my LAN, but my routers block access from the outside.
