Hi,

I have a small problem reconncting with WiFi. Im using a Windows XP system with Salling clicker, and a couple of different Windows Mobile devices.
Sometimes (have not seen a pattern) when I want to connect to the computer it does not show up in the auto-discovery.
Instead I have two choices "ComputerName (last used) or"Enter Adress manually".
If I enter the "last used" option it dooes not connect, even though the computer is on.

I have a fixed IP in the windows machine and if I manually enter the IP adress it works great! Very strange, as I thought the "last used" is just a shortcut to this IP adress.

This is not a huge problem, but it does make the system a lot less wife friendly....

Any ideas?

This means our UDP 5353 packages aren't flowing freely in your network. (the "last used" option doesn't use the IP address as we can't know it's static).

Could you please describe your network setup? Firewalls or misconfigured/problematic routers tend to be the cause of the problem you're seeing.

Best.

Hi,

Client is different PPCs, all of which get their adress via DHCP.

All are on the 192.168.0.X network with the server having a fixed IP 192.168.0.91.

The server has Windows XP, with the standard firewall on and UDP port 5353 is open from the config the clicker-software did when installed (Salling Clicker mDNS is open). Winclicker.exe is also an allowed program.
No other internal firewalls exist in the network and I have no other problems with ports and connectivity. The traffic gos through a wireless AP (with no DNS or firewall functionallity) and then through a Gigabit bridge (also no DNS or firewall). The DHCP-server is in my ADSL router, which this traffic never passes.

If I restart the program, the server pops up automatically at the client.

Somehow I dont think its problem with the network.
My server geos in and out of hibernation a lot, and maybe this is part of the problem?

Perhaps the hibernation bit is the problem. Would you be able to change the energy settings on the server so as to see if things work better if it's not hibernating as often as it is now?

I will try to leave it on.
It never goes into hibernation automatically, I just turn the computer "off" that way. Will try to see if this really is the problem.

Thanks,

Hi, took quite some time... Sorry.

Yes, its definetely the hibernation, and its not a problem on all machines. I have tried it on three machines at home and only the one I use for salling clicker has this problem... And its defenitely the hibernation.

If you can find a way around it it would be great...

Thanks
