Can I view MX-Dashboard on my iPad Pro?

Post by KD7YZ » Sun 09 Jul 2017 10:35 am

So I just got my first iPad Pro. Am I able to view http://localhost:8998/index.html on it?

I ask because I get the error 'could not connect to server' .

In trying this, I am at home on my WiFi ..
I am aware that I'd need some other scheme if I was not at home ... VPN or something of which I have no clue how to set up.
But on my own WiFi I guessed it could figure out what 127.0.0.1 meant.

thanks!

127.0.0.1 and localhost always mean "this computer". You need to use the IP address of the machine running MX.
