Maybe Im updating too fast, updated to new version on market today (1.18) but wireless synch is completely broken for me. It doesnt see my tablet at all, I edited the config file and put in ip add for my tablet but still no go.

I noticed after updating to 1.17 the wireless sync doesn't always sync.. I get the notification on the tablet that the sync has started.. and that it's finished.. but it doesn't actually sync..

Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries, but it will eventually work.. I've done alot of syncing and haven't had that issue until 1.17 hit.. Same results whether I hit sync on the PC or the tablet..

Hy,

I didn't know if I should open a new Topic for this or just ask here.

Could somebody post a Step-by-Step guide on the wifi sync?

I can get the USB sync to work but not wifi sync. I'm I right that I have to pair the Device again? On the Android Device should CR be running or not? I couldn't find any answers to that in other posts.

Help would be much appreciated :)

thx

Faba

Normally it should work out of the box (and it seems for most of the people).

First, turn off every firewall you can find (but just temporarily) and see if it helps.

You can also use the new feature in 0.9.146:
* Pair your device with USB
* Get your device IP address and put it into ComicRack.ini (the last setting, uncomment it, remove the example IPs and put in the one from your device).
* Restart ComicRack
* Hit Sync

I can't get the wireless sync to work when making a request from the device. neither my thunderbolt nor my transformer work. I have 146 and 1.18.
There is no error it just does nothing.

It's not a problem of your devices but a problem with your wifi network setup. Maybe we have some network guru in our midst who can find the problem. I can only tell you the things ComicRack Win/Android do:

* ComicRack Android broadcasts a multicast packet to every machine in the local network to port 7615 (so this needs to be open from the outside on the windows machine + your router must allow multicast)
* ComicRack Windows uses Ports 7614 to communicate with the Android device (so this must be able to connect to the outside)

That's all there is. If someone can tell me what crazy router/firewall/policy setup kills this simple setup I'm very pleased.

So I guess it could be my antivirus software causing the problem then
