Preview over Wifi

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 03, 2013 10:26 pm

Hey you,

Are there any special settings I need to adjust, on my router, to enable WiFi preview?

Every time I try to use it, be it cell phone or laptop, I just can't connect. I've tried changing the port but that didn't help. Any other ideas?

This is how my preferences are set.


And I double checked I am using the right IP.


Thank you,

@Gweely I am using a Galaxy S2 (Default browser), iPhone 4 (Safari), Windows7 laptop (Firefox) and a Kobo Arc (Google Chrome).

I am using 192.168.1.70:50000
This is the same IP that pops up in my browser during live preview.Tekniko2013-06-04 17:10:23

@Tekniko Have you tried disabling firewall/antivirus to see if that's causing a problem

Also try opening the ports in your router
