Sockso Music Server

Sockso is, without a doubt, one of the simplest music servers you'll ever have the pleasure of using.  Need to share your music with others?  Want to be able to access your music library from anywhere?  Need to serve up that special reading program CD to your kindergarten classrooms so they can listen to it anytime they want without using a several hundred dollar computer as a CD player?  Check out Sockso!

I use Sockso for the last scenario I described....to serve up our Reading Program CD's to our K-2 students...particularly the kindergarten classrooms.  This year I decided that I was spending way too much time trying to make the thin-clients in their classrooms into very expensive CD players.  So, I decided it would be best to simply rip the CD's and serve the music over our school network.  I set out to find a music server to handle the task.  I was fully expecting to put some time and effort into it, but was very happy when I stumbled across Sockso.  I had my first Sockso server up and running on my own machine in less than 2 minutes.  Check out the screenshots below...try it for yourself!  (click for larger images)
