Android App 2.3 can´t connect to DVBLink Server 5.1

Postby uliw » Mon Mar 09, 2015 12:16 pm

I´m on DVBLink Server 5.1 Build 11069 (on Synology NAS with Evansport (Intel)) and I have an Android smart phone (4.4.2) with the DVBLink App version 2.3.0.
The smart phone and the DVBLink server are in the same network and the autodetect within the app works well. There is no firewall around the NAS activated.

Nevertheless the smart phone app cannot connect to the DVBLink server. Are there any known problems around this constellation?

Be sure that your dvblink app is configured correctly.
- Active profile: Local network
- Server port: 8100
- if you use authorization: write user name and Password
- than you can click on Show avaible servers ... . Is there your server appears?

everything as you mentioned. No authentication activated (username and password field in app empty). Available server shows the right DVBLink server.

no, it´s deactivated in the DVBLink server settings.

I would love to use it, but the PVR addon in XBMC/KODI does not offer the authentication/authorization.

If you're talking about DVBLink PVR Addon, then he has the authentication/authorization.
But about android connection, can you please, set log level to info, restart dvblink server, reproduce the issue and attach zipped log file here?
Also,Just in case, you can create the rule for 8100-8101 ports at NAS firewall.

I´ve just tested the setup again with another smart phone and it worked.
So what´s the reason on smart phone #1?

There was Adblock Plus installed that redirects the local data stream through a proxy. Excluding the DVBLink server from the proxy hosts solved the problem :)
