Mobile Client

Postby tjh » Wed Nov 24, 2010 2:26 pm

So I went ahead and installed the Mobile Connect software. Do I have a iPhone? No, I do not. That does not stop me from liking to play with and test things :)

Anyway, I found that the client couldn't even connect to the Amazon EC2 service. I'm going to go ahead and suggest this is because it's trying to connect to port 9999, something that I know the proxy server at work isn't going to allow.

I just wondered if you've also thought of having the server listen on port 80 and port 443? Much more likely to get through a Corporate Proxy that way...

I didn't do lots of testing, just had a bit of a play with it to see if I could make it do anything interesting (I couldn't)

Can't wait for the BlackBerry version guys, you know I'm going to be your very first customer!

I would also be interested in a X1 Mobile Client for Blackberry, and even willing to test out a Beta of one such prototype on my Blackberry 9800 Torch (one of the newer models around, Blackberry OS6) !

Please, X1, we need a X1 Mobile Client for Blackberry!

I suspect that there would be more buyers for Blackerry access than iPhone, but my view is that software houses should support as many devices as is humanly possible.

Unlike the PC world, mobiles have yet to settle down on a single operating system. At least four are in contention. Then there are the proprietary ones.

If it is possible to do something in java that supports several systems, that would be nice.

TiM, Thanks for trying out the X1 Mobile Search app, we definitely appreciate your support.

Regarding the “rendezvous server” , this is a server component that helps get through firewalls for most users. Currently it operates on a non-standard port, but we’ll be adding additional options with a future update. Simply using port 80 or 443 will not necessarily solve the secure firewall issue because our solution uses a proprietary protocol, which is part of the reason why it’s so blazingly fast! We’re working with enterprise partners to build a solution for traversing firewalls and network address translation devices (routers) that is acceptable to both individual users as well as security groups within large organizations.

We definitely hear you on Blackberry support – it’s on our roadmap. Stay tuned.

Regards,

Mobile client works great for me. Only problem is that I can't get Mobile Connect to start automatically on my desktop when it boots. I've tried reinstalling, I've added a shortcut to my startup folder, I've done everything I can think of, but it always seems to reconfigure itself so that it WON'T start when Windows starts.

Maybe there's a problem with the registry entry Mobile Connect creates when "Start automatically after I logon" is selected? Maybe instead of starting, the entry causes Mobile Connect to stop? I'm really not sure and haven't had time to troubleshoot, but if anyone has any ideas, that would be great. This is a problem since if I don't remember to manually start Mobile Connect, then (obviously) I can't access via the mobile client.

In fact, I just did a reboot and watched as Mobile Connect started at boot up, and then shortly after it shut itself down. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this. Any suggestions?

Hi,

Any progress on getting this to work with proxy servers and corporate firewalls?

All I get is an error when I connect from our corporate LAN. No clues as to the error either. Where is it getting proxy info from (if anywhere)?

Help appreciated. I've paid for it, now can't use it :(

Cheers,
Mark.

I am a long time user of X1 and would like to use the X1 Mobile Search. I have purchased the iPad app but I can not get the client on the PC to generate a "secure discovery code" which I assume means I can not reach the servers.

My support agreement for the X1 client has expired so I can not enter a case to try out the version mentioned above. As I just purchased the X1 Search app I hope there is a way for me to get this resolved without extending my support agreement.

wolfehr - We wanted to take a moment to thank you for your feedback and support of the X1 products. I want to let you know that support for Android is on our road map. I'm not sure of the time line for support of that platform, but rest assured it is coming.

Looks like it would be more useful to have a list of things that X1 will not support.

iPads anyone?

Kenward - when you say "Ipads anyone ?" I get the impression that you are unaware that the current version of the X1 Mobile Client has full Ipad support? Or am I misreading this?

Just trying to reinforce my dislike of all things Apple.

I am going to have to hide that when I interview Johnny Ive some time in the near future.
