hello,

after some struggle, I was able to install PicApport on Windows 11. and it works fine and I added my photos. maps module works great. I reconfigured the admin account and configured another user account. all seems to be working as it should

so I want to make my server available on the android app... 

so here is the issue.
1- for some reason Picapport is not using localhost but it is using a specific / static IP address. picapport.properties doesn't have config there for IP address but port is configured
2- when I configure the same server IPAddress:port in the android app, the page comes blank.
3- I am using a VPN.

any help is appreciated

thanks
Yasmeen

Hey,

are you able to open your PicApport Webpage in the browser of your mobile (while outside yor network and connected via VPN)?

If not: Sounds like a firewall configuration issue. Is any device able to reach the server instance of PicApport? Is the configured port open for LAN and VPN?

If yes: The easiest way would be to visit your PicApport page and create a shortcut to your homescreen. PicApport has a build in WebApp so after that close your browser and reopen your shortcut an you get nearly (or fully?) the same experience. 

Regards,
Michael
