Even though the test on the ipad browser(s) are successful, my actions app still cannot connect to the server. The computers are not visible in the network list, nor does it work to connect with manual ip-address entry.
I have updated bonjour, disabled firewalls, uninstalled an reinstalled both app and server, restarted both machine and ipad, and I still get a connection eror in the actions app. Even though the connection test returns a successful message. I have already gone through the regular troubleshooting guide, but it doesn't tell you what to do if the browser test is successful :)
How should I proceed troubleshooting? Thanks :)
Windows 7 x64, ipad 1.
have you changed the default listening port in the Actions Server settings ?
The default should be the 17797.
Also, have turned the test OFF before to connect with Actions?
Thank you for your replies, i will try to figure out a solution
every system has its how peculiarities, some routers are more tricky than others, and every case is different.
If you don’t see any PC in the list then something is wrong with the Bonjour service, (not installed or blocked by a firewall, third-party service, router firewall…). If bonjour is not running or it’s blocked you cannot connect automatically, but you still can connect writing manually your IP address.
You can refer to this page to have more details and links (first section of the page).
About your connection issue, if you have passed the Safari test but you still cannot connect it means that you have probably changed the listening port and it’s different from 17797. You only can use that port in the manual connection.
Let me know how you proceed
