I am running Mountain Lion and NO Firewall.
I installed the server and ran the connection test. I can connect to x.x.x.x:17797 using Safari on my iPad.
However, the server icon at the top of my screen is gray. If click on it, it says "Disconnected".
I tried to restart my system because I checked the box to "Start on Login".
Still nothing. There does not appear to be a way to "connect".
a couple question to know we are not missing anything:
- after installing the server, did you get to the network panel on your iPad?
if you didn’t:
- get to your set library, then tap on the little computer icon positioned at top left
- then, you should find your computer in the list. Tap on it.
if you did:
- did you find your computer’s name listed?
- after tapping, did you receive any alert about problems with connection?
In the second case, please take a look to the connection troubleshooting, it usually solves most of the problems with connection
If your problem persists please let me know and I’ll be glad to help you.
p.s. anyway, If you need step-by-step indications for connection be sure to check this:
Hi Raul and Brent,
first of all, note that if you keep your Connectivity Test turned ON, Actions WILL NOT be able to connect.
Remember to Turn it OFF before to use Actions!
Rahul sometimes it happens that, if something changes in your network (e.g. a different IP assigned to your computer or iPad), Actions does not automatically find your computer for a couple of times.
Try the direct connection, in your case it seems the best way to start.
In your computer select the Actions Server icon, right click, Preferences/Options, then choose Network, you will find in the central blank field your computer name and IP.
Then open Actions, go to the network panel, then manually write your computer IP in the fields.
Once filled the last field Actions will start contact your computer. This will probably solve your issues.
Let me know how you proceed
Thank you Peter for your feedback,
so you are saying that is not clear that you have to access to the network panel to make Actions connect with your computer?
Let me know!
