alternative to open call with serverID

Postby henrik » Tue Jan 13, 2015 4:45 pm


according to the Android Java language page the open calls using serverID are not implemented. I've been using this for other languages so I miss it. Does anyone know a good workaround? Do I have to change to static ip, or is there some way in android java to translate the mdns hostname into an ip address which can then be used for the open call?

Many thanks,

We don't support it because Android doesn't provide any mdns support. I think there exist some mDNS libraries which you could link in for looking up the ip address and port of discovered phidget webservice services.
