This may be a silly problem. But I have two wired computers on my network and have no problems accessing the web interface at 127.0.0.1:9000. However, I can't get this to work on my wifi connected laptop in Firefox or my iPhone in Safari. Is this a firewall, or router setting issue?

Thanks.

127.0.0.1:9000 will only work for the PC running the server, as it is a 'local' address.

You'll need the correct server address from the Settings > Information web page and then http://<server>:9000

I set the address of the serving computer to be fixed, using the relevant settings in the router. That way, there is no need to check the address each time, and indeed the other computers can have the server address bookmarked.

Thanks, that was pretty straightforward.
