App never connects

Entered the host name for my engine Mac and the status screen just reads "Connecting..."

 

This is over WiFi on the local network. I'll try 3G and access from my home network later tonight.

 

I can use the "Net Utility" app to ping by name, so the address should be resolved correctly by the iPhone IP stack.

 

The server is a Mac Mini running nothing but the engine (8.1.626).

 

How long *should* it take to connect?

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Jon

When I tried the connection at home, it was very quick, so it's not a firewall issue on the server side.

 

Another mystery looking for a solution.

 

Since it works remotely, I'm less concerned that it doesn't work in the office as I'm likely to manage from my laptop or another desktop when there.

 

Cheers,

Jon

ShieldsUp at grc.com confirms that I've got TCP port 22024 open, and Console on my Mac Server reports com.retrospect.RetroEngine saying "dag service: client connected" and then "dag service: client disconnected". This pair of messages repeats once per second.

 

The iPhone app alternates between 'connecting...' and 'Disconnected'.

 

Kinda bummed that I can't get it working. Not sure what to try next. Any advice?
