Did anyone try shutting down their Firewall like I suggested?
I tried, but doesn't make any difference..

Same here. I even disabled the router firewall ... I understand this has to be a problem at our end, but it is hard to troubleshoot :(

No more syncing blues! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

I finally got the sync working just fine! As Mizio said, no port forwarding was needed at all. On the contrary, I needed basically no advanced setting at all.

Here are the steps I took. Maybe other people who can't pair their Pads (read: perezmu) may get some idea (& post them here for the benefit of all).

Here is my new router:

These were my (pretty basic) settings:

ComicRack instantaneously recognizes my iPad now:

I click Ok, but nothing happens. (Is this normal?) :-(

I then clicked the sync now option from the Ipad screen, & it begins: :cheer:

CRW also gets active:

And I get them in my iPad..! :cheer:

Now, let us see if the sync actually syncs my metadata....!

I read a book on my iPad & add the ratings & review..

I sync & voilà !

Great! Not sure it's working 100% since the serial comes up all 0s, but a sync is a sync!

Hmm... And I thought that was a cool protection thingy, the all zero serials. You think this may be a problem? Any clues on how (and if) to remedy this? :unsure:

My guess is as long as CR always reads it as a blank serial, you'll have no problems. If it starts reading the actual serial, it may not match to what's in CR and your syncs will fail.

Based on the feedback received from this thread, I just now synced 160 books in a go, and I must say it went flawless! :cheer:

It's just great to see the iPad library & CRW looking the same!

Thanks 600, but still no go. I do not feel like purchasing a new router to do this... I will keep tinkering until I find the solution. :angry: :angry: :angry:

I suggest you restore your router to its factory settings, and start afresh. It will work...;-)

The router has to support broadcasting in the local network (WHICH IT SHOULD).
But on some it does not work (or does not work out of the box).
Anyway, to bring this over from the android section: you can add the IPad IP address to comicrack.ini and then it works anyways.
