Logitech Media Server CLI
CLI -- Command Line Interface
Documentation is available in your SqueezeCenter's web interface.
Goto Help > Technical Information > Command Line Interface
In general, you connect to the server using the 'telnet' protocol, which is the basis for most of the Internet protocols. The standard (default) port if 9090.
BTW: You get no command prompt at all.
Assume you have your SqueezeCenter installed on a computer named "musicserver". Then to do a query to the server, you can do:
To get the number of players connected to the server:
telnet musicserver 9090 player count ? exit
To get the number of albums in the database:
telnet musicserver 9090 info total albums ? exit
To start a rescan:
telnet musicserver 9090 rescan exit
If you secured your Squeezebox Server with a password, you have to login first with
login username password
If correct it's repeated as
login username ********
