Thank you for your quick response.

Yes I have enabled "Allow control of XBMC via HTTP"

I have left the port as 80 and I have cleared the username and password 
in case that was a problem and I have left the web interface as "default"

I can access files via my network so I know the IP address is correct 
and functioning.

The Xbmc web site shows how to set up the web remote control and it is 
so simple so I must have misunderstood something very basic.

This is exactly what I'm trying "". Firefox gives 
the standard error response but rekong gives a more useful message 
saying that the connection is refused.
