I have a Argus server/client on a windows XP computer. On this computer xbmc Argus plugin works fine with default settings.
But i am trying to get XBMC argus plugin to work on a nother computer with no luck. I have tryed with two different computers with same result . One with windows 7 and another with windows XP.
On both computers the Argus client is working ok.
The computers are on the same network and firewall is off.
The server computers IP is 192.168.0.107 and the user name is Marcus and there is no password
here is part of the XBMC log from the windows / computer

21:49:45 T:2592 INFO: AddOnLog: ARGUS TV client: Connect() - Connecting to http://192.168.0.107:49943/

What could be the root course of this problem ?

Just an idea (because of the 'cannot write' in the log entry):
Are you sure, that your shares (recording & timeshifting) are correct?
The wrong syntax of the paths were the problem for me...

It was after all a firewall on the server that stopt Argus Plugin from working
Now it works fine

Thank you. This information helped me to get my live tv working from my Argus tv server. I just added the port 49943 in the firewall rules of the Argus server. Can not understand why it was not added by default.
