Hey All, would appreciate some help here. This is my first experience with NAS & Minumserver, am somewhat of a rookie with this stuff in general.

I have installed MinimServer & Java onto my new Sonology 1515+, directed the music file to the right place. Minimwatch is installed on my Mac.

The NAS is attached to a Netgear wifi extender away from the main router.

Can't seem to do anything to get past the grey Icon and do some useful stuff with the program..

What is in the MinimWatch log? You can view this by selecting Options > Show log (watch) from the grey minim icon.

This is the MinimServer log (from the Synology), not the MinimWatch log (from the Mac).
That's what showed up from my Mac. I stopped & restarted from the Mac icon and ran again:

Reading folder cache for Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Reading folder cache for 1981 - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules [US Vinyl 24-192 FLAC][brubruba]
MinimServer[***Home] is running

Looks like it is successfully reading the only two files I have placed into the music folder, but icon is still grey.

If you are seeing this on the Mac, the icon is not grey. It is transparent (the same colour as the menu bar), which means MinimServer is running normally and you can configure MinimServer from the Mac using the MinimWatch minim icon.
Thanks, looks like it's been working correctly all along, I just misread the icon.

No problem. The "grey icon" is darker and stands out against the light grey background of the menu bar.
