Problem displaying books from remote machines
#1  Dan__ 07-26-2019, 01:04 PM
Hello,
I'm porting my calibre server from an old windows server to a new win 10 machine. If I connect using localhost:8888 I get the initial screen, click the button as see all the books.

If I connect from another machine using 192.168.1.200:8888, I get the initial screen, click the button, wait, and then it times out telling me there are no books.

Remote access worked fine on the old machine and I have replicated the drive and folder locations and used the same commands to start the server.

Any suggestions about how to diagnosis and fix this?

Thanks,
Dan

If it is working from localhost but not another IP it typically means something in the network path is blocking the connection, susually a firewall/antivirus. Turn those off temporarily and try.

Yes, it must be so. Everything is a completely new install. A few reboots seem to have cured whatever was ailing it.

Thanks
