Hi - I am using mimoLive 5.10 and the iOS remote app. I enable Remote Control Access in the preferences, and click “open in browser” and it works great, so far so good. But if I try with the iOS remote app from an iphone or ipad, it “sees” the mimoLive host computer, but when I click on it the screen goes black and it hangs with a progress wheel.
When I try opening the URL in an external browser, it fails to even see the mimoLive remote server. On closer inspection, the URLs mimoLive reports are confusing. Sometimes it gets the mycomputer.local:8989 address that you would expect; other times that URL is much longer (but it ends in my ISP .spectrum.com:8989). The second URL is meant to be a local IP address but it is malformed - instead of 192.168.x.x:8989, I’m seeing http://18.104.22.168:8989. But my whole network is addressed 192.168.x.x. And when I try from another computer on the network to access http://192.168.x.x:8989 it fails to connect completely. I have found no way to access the remote control except from the computer I am running mimoLive on. And just to double check I tried running a web server on port 80 and I can reach that with no problem from another device using the 192.168.x.x address.
Is there a way to fix this? Where does mimoLive find the IP address it suggests in the preferences? Is there something breaking down there? Why would it have a 173.158 address suggested rather than something actually on my network? I don’t have VPN enabled when I’m doing any of this. Any suggestions? Thank you!
