Saten -- connecting to Deneb!

Saten, the HP Slate, can see Alcyone and Arcturus, the two computers, but it didn't see Deneb, the Windows Home Server. Connector was able to see Deneb, but I couldn't open it as a file server (or to access fansubs).

Tonight I figured out why: I hadn't updated the "hosts" file. That's in Windows\system32\drivers\etc and it needed a line with Deneb's IP.

And now this means I can watch fansubs on Saten by wireless.

I wonder if Uiharu, the iPaq, has a hosts file?

UPDATE: If there is, I'll never find it. No file search.

UPDATE: And for my next trick I'll figure out why mplayerc shows subtitles on Alcyone but not on Saten, when playing exactly the same file.

Or maybe I'll have to install zoom player on Saten.
