View Full Version : [ubuntu] Rhythmweb Bluetooth/Wifi finding issues

I recently installed the Rhythmweb plugin. I can go to http://localhost:8000 on my own machine and control it that way, so I know that functions properly. My issue is my phone finding the correct path. I have it bluetooth synced, with the laptop device's name being "peter-laptop" (I reset it to the default just for clarity's sake), and my laptop and phone are both on the same wifi network as well.

I have tried many variants of peter-laptop.local:8000 and peter-laptop:8000 but no luck, in opera or the default blackberry browser. :( Can anyone shed some light on what I am doing incorrectly? Thank you.

What about using the laptop ip?

something like

In the laptop open a console and type "ifconfig" to get the ip address.
