An excellent app and already recommended it to friends.
I'm struggling to connect via 3G though which would be really handy when not in the house. Perhaps I'm not forwarding ports correctly? Is this an easy thing to do, again, I tried following your tutorial but couldn't understand it sorry. Is there an easier way to do this, for the record, I use a BT homehub :-)

Easiest way: contact me by email with screenshots of your router config page

Still got the problem, it works fine over 3G. Port Forwarding is working fine as I'm outside of the network but when I'm on wireless it can't connect. I'm created a new profile for Wifi but the external IP will still be the same...

You need to have 2 profiles:
- For 3G, use the external IP you get with http://dev.patey.net/ip
- For Wifi, use the INTERNAL IP you get with ipconfig/ifconfig in command line (as mentioned on my website in the tutorial for connecting in WIFI)

Let me know once done, and send me a comment *from the app* after the failed connection in wifi.

Maybe this is the problem, the Wifi I'm using it not from home it's work. Also requires VPN for the apps to work. Will try and get my ip from the IPAd and use that...

If it's a work wifi, it may (and probably does) block some ports and/or protocols.
At my work, I can't connect to my SABnzbd server unless I put it on port 80...

Yes, have a look at dyndns.org and websites like this. It gives you an URL such as xxxxx.dyndns.org and each time your PC finds a new ip address, it sends it to dyndns and your URL points to the new ip address.

Then in sabmobile, just use the URL provided by dyndns!

Cheers

Thanks. Is there any tutorials on how to do this? I looked on that site but it seems you have to pay for it?

Well, there are many "dynamic hosts" like this, free or paid for... But I don't have any tutorial. I guess you can find many on the web!

I managed to get it set up using no-ip.com
Was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Thanks :-)

Hi all,

I've reduced the price of SABMobile to 99 cents on the Apple AppStore, if you were waiting to try it out, now is a good time !

This won't last long!!!

Cheers
