AirFader Mobile (android/iPad) won't connect to server

Here is a quick checklist to follow if you are having problems making Mobile and Server talk to each other.

  1. Make sure the Windows computer and your Android device are connected to the same wireless network before starting AirFader.
  2. Start AirFader (in Windows)
  3. Go to Config > Server in AirFader and make sure the server is running.
  4. Note the IP address listed there. (Probably 192.168.x.x)
  5. Open AirFader Mobile on your Android device
  6. Get into Setup
  7. Enter the IP address from the Server's config tab above (Probably 192.168.x.x) This should NOT be the console's IP address.
  8. Make sure the port is right. It should normally be 12301.
  9. Make sure the username/password match what you set up on the server in Config > Users.
  10. Click "Connect" in the Setup screen in AirFader Mobile to force a re-connect.

If that still doesn't work, you may need to turn off the firewall on your computer.

 

To Disable Windows Firewall

For Windows XP:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click Off (not recommended).
  3. Click OK.

 

For Windows Vista:

  1. Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.
  2. Click Turn Windows Firewall on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click Off (not recommended), and then click OK.

...the first time ever I've ever paid money instead of writing [a program] myself - it's a great product I use at 3-4 gigs per week. Congratulations on some really good work and keep it up!
