Installing MinimServer and MinimWatch on Mac OS X

MinimServer or MinimWatch?

If your music files are on a Mac or on an external drive attached to a Mac, you should install MinimServer on the Mac. You can use the Mac to configure and manage MinimServer, and you don't need to install MinimWatch. You'll need the Mac to be running whenever you're browsing your music collection or playing music.

If your music files are on a NAS, you can either install MinimServer on the NAS or you can attach the NAS to a Mac as an external drive and install MinimServer on the Mac as described in the previous paragraph. If you've installed MinimServer on the NAS, you can install MinimWatch on your Mac if you want to use the Mac to configure and manage MinimServer. You don't need to be running MinimWatch to browse your music collection or play music.

If your music files are on a Mac Mini that you're using as a server, and you have another Mac with a display and keyboard, you should install MinimServer on the Mac Mini. You can install MinimWatch on the other Mac and use it to configure and manage MinimServer. You'll need the Mac Mini to be running whenever you're browsing your music collection or playing music.

If your music files are on another computer, you should install MinimServer on the other computer, which will need to be running whenever you're browsing your music collection or playing music. You can install MinimWatch on a Mac if you want to use the Mac to configure and manage MinimServer. You don't need to be running MinimWatch to browse your music collection or play music.
