    Hi, recently installed MP2 on my laptop. Have been running MP1 on a different computer for a while. I installed and set up my media sources, then went back the next day and it was empty. After a lot of searching, it just appears that its not connecting to the server. Service monitor shows disconnected, and I've searched the forums and wiki and I cannot find how to connect to the server. Am I missing something? I'm not running TV or anything, strictly movie and series. It seems like I'm missing something easy...

    I posted the logs, but it appears to be related to being signed into my VPN. I must have installed with my VPN on, so now if I'm not connected to my VPN, I cant connect to the server. It seems strange though since my VPN rarely connects to the same IP, and is on the same computer as the client. I tried to uninstall and reinstall with my VPN not connected, but it appears the server info stayed the same... any suggestions?

    No big surprise. The client has been attached to the server under a certain name and IP address. You can detach the client in the settings and then reattach it to the "new" server.

    Uninstall/Install is not removing the settings parts and database information. So reinstalling will just get you where you left from. Instead you could just stop the server service, then delete/rename the ProgramData part and relaunch the server service.

    After detaching, it shows no server available. Where would I delete/rename the ProgramData part of the server service?

    Mmh, did you verify if the MP2 Server Service is actually running?
