    Hi All,

    I tried to connect from SQ MixPad app to my SQ-5 by using “Unit Name” (it should be the hostname).
    I can connect with IP address, but it is not comfortable when i use DHCP.
    By using hostname I get “Failed to Connect” message.
    Mixpad version is 1.5.0

    Any Idea why?

    BR, Gabor

    something is wrong in your network

    the MixPad or SQ version did not provide any helpful information since this is the easy part on the network

    The „unit name“ has nothing to do with network names and the mechanisms of name resolution. You need for that something like a domain name service, but I doubt that you want do configure one.
    I personally do not use DHCP for devices like consoles or others which are acting like a server. I rather define static IP addresses outside the DHCP range and therefore know exactly which devices has what ip address.
    But since the Mixpad software scans the local network for SQ devices the app should be able to detect the console anyway.

    to make it clear…
    both have to be in the same subnet, the MixPad device and the SQ
    does the MixPad show the “unit name” on the screen?

    „Local network“ means in fact that both endpoints (console and Mixpad device) must habe the same subnetwork subnetmask must be identical and the subnet portion of the ip address too). Then the unit name is shown in the list of available devices.

    yes… that’s what I mean…

    and if the device is not in the list,
    something is wrong in the network 😉

    Hi All!

    Thank you very much for your answers. I got the solution. I write it because it can be useful for others.
    I have two wifi routers in my home network, and my laptop was connected to the secondary router, which I assume has a different subnet.
    When I connected my laptop to the main router ba UTP cable or wifi, MixPad can discover the mixer by “Unit Name”.

    Best Regards, Gabor
