If the device running MinimServer is at IP address 192.168.1.98, the problem appears to be that MinimServer is not running (so not related to MinimWatch). If MinimServer is running, entering http://192.168.1.98:9790/ in the browser would show the status web page.

Simon,
Problem is solved, most likely by a reboot of my Synology NAS!
Is it correct that MinimServer is installed on the NAS, since MinimServer is shown as an App icon on the NAS browser?
So it could well be that after a Java update, MinimServer does not run anymore on the NAS for some reason. A reboot of the NAS (plus allowing Java traffic through the Firewalls) is probably all that is required.

Before the NAS reboot, the browser could "not make a connection" to MinimServer, but now the browser shows the following MinimServer Status:

Media server status for MinimServer: Running

At a next occurance, I will first reboot my NAS, then check the firewall rules (since Norton allowed Java incoming traffic).

Anyway, thanks again for your very quick response.

A happy MinimServer user,
Gijs

I don't think the problem was related to any firewall or Java update issues. For some reason, MinimServer on your NAS stopped running (crashed). You should always check for this first by using the MinimServer status web page.

If this happens, you can restart MinimServer from the NAS Package Center. It is not necessary to reboot the NAS. If this happens frequently, please let me know.
