I lost a hard drive on my MP1 server. So I decided to try MP2. I have installed the server and have the channels and databases functioning. I'm trying to get a client to connect to the server. MP2- Service monitor on the Client shows a server status as connected. But when I try to set up a media source MP2 says their is no sever connected. I looked at the service monitor log and it shows the correct IP address for the server. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    You have to manually attach client to server. Go to settings -> General -> connectivity, then Home Server.
