Tablet not seeing server

Postby mstrauser3@gmail.com » Sun Jan 27, 2019 4:31 pm

I successfully set my phone up to remotely control EasyWorship 7. Then I tried my Samsung Tablet. It does not see the server (that page is blank). Phone still works to control it. Tried uninstalling and re-installing Bonjour - no help.

Ideas?

Is the tablet on the same WIFI as the phone?
Some devices need to be put in airplane mode then turn off airplane mode to get the bonjour functionality working again. I have to do that with my pixel 2.

Yes, the tablet is on the same Wifi SSID.

I tried airplane mode on and off and it didn't work. Then I rebooted it and tried it again and it did work (finally got the Server ID). After it went to sleep it wouldn't find the server ID again, but because I had previously selected the server ID, it did work (I could then pair to it and start controlling from remote). So, something is a bit flaky with the Android tablet finding the server name.

The bonjour functionality on some android devices is flaky. If the tablet has cell capability you might want to either disable that functionality or enable airplane mode and then turn wifi back on. Seems to have trouble if it loses wifi, it switches to trying to using cell service, but when it gets wifi back it can't switch back to the wifi connection.
