I am convinced by a thread that a media player ( be it a PC or for instance UtraRendu) seeing its (Pc) server directly sounds much better ( more transparent) than indirectly because player and server are connected to the same router or switch. but not directly to each other. The router or switch is also the source for internet and this way all are on the same private net work sharing the same sub net
A direct connection between the player and the server is to have one Ethernet port on the server connected to the one of the player.
In order to remotely see the library of the server and the player in an android software player (mobile phone), all of them must be in the same sub.net.of the private network. The router on this private network takes care of the wireless part and gives access to internet and mobile phone. The server has one port to the player and one port to the private network for internet and to see other computers in the house.
The private network is in my case a 192.168.xx...
Windows 10 refuses to accept the two ports of the computer to be in the same private network and keeps them separate or malfunctioning when manually forced ( canceling DHCP) unless the two ports are bridged. Bridging in Windows 10 is extremely easy and part of right clicking the 2 or more Ethernet connections
Bridging is also necessary when not using JPlay to play Tidal. for instance when the player is, as in my case, a Sonore UltraRendu
How to complete this feat in windows server 2016 (CORE)? It does not seem to be easy for windows server?
