Hello, I'm a new user that purchased Mcmyadmin 2 about 4 days ago. I got the server running just fine, and I'm quite pleased with it!

My only issue is with the mobile peripheral that I also purchased that would allow me control of the server remotely.

I can't seem to figure out how to connect it to my server, and I've tried searching for answers with no luck.

My server is home hosted with a port forwarded router.

If anyone can help me I'd be well obliged, thank you!

Don't bump posts. Are you able to reach McMyAdmin via your phones browser?

Ah, my apologies! I'm new you see.

It doesn't seem like I can. I use the same url I see on my host machine's browser, to no avail. That being "localhost:8080"

I appreciate the response!

"localhost" means "this computer" - you'll need to instead connect using your computers IP address on port 8080.

Ah, that works thanks!

Though I'd like to know how I'd connect to it remotely, rather than via LAN.

Nonetheless, this is one step towards the right direction, and so you have my sincere thanks!

You need to enable port forwarding on your router to your PCs IP address on port 8080, then you can connect using your external IP.

Sorry for the late reply, but I couldn't get it to work, unfortunately.

I do believe your direction is correct. However, I've come to believe that my ISP is blocking access to port 8080. So I'm afraid I can't use that port without upgrading my provider's package.

So now, I'm wondering if it would be possible to access it via another port. Otherwise, I'm afraid, there isn't much I can do with the app.

If your port forwarding settings allow for different internal and external ports you can just use a different external port and put that into the app instead. Otherwise just move everything up a few ports.

That did it!

I changed the source port to something else, and it worked wonderfully! Guess my ISP was blocking the other port after all.

Thanks for all the help you gave me, I throughly appreciate it!
