Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

why it hasn't???
open share preferences "i" icon -> there are tracker and relay options.
open Sync Settings -> advanced -> power user settings and you'll find  relay and tracker settings there as well.......

ok i will but can you please save me effort to verify first

1) does both device have to be set to relay and tracker off for this to work? or is it ok that one device is set to purely local (my mobile) while my other device, the desktop, still has tracker and relay server on?

I have turned off all firewalls on desktop, so ports are not blocked for sure

issue 1: I can't find the predefined.host on app. so can't do much on that end

I did try to add predefined host entry on desktop, and that worked. my phone and app now syncing.

Issue 2; my phone is on dynamic IP DHCP from my wifi router, and this is not a solution. Isn't sync supposed to find each other on local network?
i have my uPnP enabled, all firewalls off on desktop .
