Trouble getting preview over LAN to work

Get help using Construct 2

I need to be able to test multitouch in an efficient manner and the only device testing that I have been able to get working is through a phone browser using HTML5.

I am having a bear of a time getting the export methods to work. I am having trouble with XDK app preview and APK install, and now I am having trouble getting preview to work through LAN. I followed the tutorial to the letter. https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/247/ho ... al-network . I have tried 2 phones and a laptop, but when I try to access the LAN IP, the remote device just times out because it never finds the address.

I am running current version of all the software. I don't know if it makes a difference regarding LAN, but I am running C2 through Parallels on a Mac.

Tutorial about troubleshooting C2's preview server.
Be sure you execute C2 as Administrator.
Do you have a WIFI router or are you just hoping your computer act as one ?

I'm not sure how accurate Mac will be to allow you to preview over LAN.

Yes, I am running C2 as administrator.

I do have a router. I'm not sure if the single IP address that is shown through my virtual Windows is through the Mac or the router.

Might there be a way to connect to my phone through a cable?
