If multicast is not working (or not available), you've to set the device IP in comicrack.ini and you can only initiate a sync from CRW.

Does this imply you have managed to make VPN syncing work? I don't see the device at all via VPN even with an ini file pointing the way.
It is a well known issue that multicasting doesn't play nicely with VPN and even with Microsoft's quickfix I have had no luck.

(I have only tried via windows vista 64 using its inbuilt VPN which is pretty basic. But usually works for most needs.)

I don't think it is worth it to me to potentially break what works great at home now. There is only the rare occasion that I would need to sync via my VPN connection. But, when I have some more time, I may play around. I understand the relationship between client server a bit better now.

Hi guys. New to the ComicRack forum but I've been using ComicRack for a bit now. I was really thrilled about getting to use CR on my ipad but I'm having a lot of the same problems as others. I've created the new text file with my ip address, turned off my firewall while doing the initial pairing and rebooted both the ipad and CR. Still I cannot get my ipad show up when trying to pair. If anyone could help me out with another idea or 2 I'd be appreciated. I'm not the most tech savvy guy so explaining things like I'm 5 will not offend me either. Thanks guys.

yes I did. I updated to the newest version of cr, inserted the comic rack.ini text file, restarted both the ipad and cr for windows, yet still didn't see my device. I tried turning off my firewall as well in windows . Just not having any luck

I'll release a version of CRW this weekend that has a better way of adding custom IPs and make a quick check if it works.
