Trouble connecting MidWiFi

Other Apps are working. MidWIFI status says not connected and does not change. I will contact the app vendor, but I notice a funny thing in the DMK instructions. The example says 192.168.1.2, but screen shot shows 192.168.1.1. I have not tried 1.2, but I think that would be incorrect?

    You are correct. The server IP address should be 192.168.1.1. The port should be 1703 and UDP. Sometimes if you are running more than one app at a time they will fight over the port. The solution to this is force quitting the other apps. I have not seen or heard of any issues with MidWiFi so check if it might be app fighting. Also if you email me a screen shot of your settings that also may help shed light on the issue.

    I thought it might be other apps, but force quitting them all didn't. I
    switched to .2 and it worked. I don't understand that.

    Great, I'm glad you got it working and sorry about the errant instructions. We will update our support literature.

    Any idea why 192.168.1.2 works when the server is at .1?

    My guess is that it is miss labelled, and actually it is asking for the
    endpoint that it should be listening on. However that is a question for
    its developer.
