Android Client: Server could not be reached

owncloud

#1

I installed the ownCloud X (10.0.1) Trial Appliance and successfully configured it. The desktop app works flawless, beautifull as a matter fact.

I would also like to use the app of my android phone, but I can’t get it connected to the server installed on my local network, neither through IP nor local DNS name.

Can anyone shine some light?


#2

Can you tell me what your servers ip address is? Or what is the address you are trying to connect with in your android app. And what error occurs?


#3

I use IP-address 192.168.178.51 which resolves by loacal DNS to fqdn kcloud.domainname.intranet

Android app message: Server could not be found.

Both when using fqdn or IP address


#4

As far as I know the mobile Apps need the full URL to the ownCloud service like https://kcloud.domainname.intranet/owncloud.
A basic connectivity test would be to access the service through a webbrowser.
Further debugging would be to check if the connection attempt arrives in the Apache logs.
