Two things to try.

1. if you know your PC name? Like for instance my PC name is Melloware when you look on Properties of My Computer. You could try on the iPhone to use the Host "Melloware.local." where Melloware is your PC name to see if it can resolve your PC name. So "PCNAME.local.".

2. To run ipConfig you simply type Start->Run then in the Run box type "cmd". that will bring up a DOS window. Then in the Dos window type "ipconfig".

Well you had it working before so something changed. Try to reboot your iPHone. Reboot your PC. Reboot your Router.

Then Windows Defender or some other Virus Scanner/Spyware/Malware checker you have is blocking that Port from allowing it to be used. Until you see Port 6004 Listening with Netstat -a it will never connect from your iPod because Zwave Commander PC is not really even listening!

So far you are the only one who has had this much difficulty. Do me a favor send me your ZwaveCommander.log file found next to the ZwaveCommander.exe. maybe your log file will tell me something.

Can't do an attachment on the forum. And my email with block anything with EXE in it. I just need the .log file so it should not be blocked.

Yep whatever you sent me was blocked. Here are two more things to try....

1. Make sure your iPod is actually on your own WIFI network. Some users have accidentally connected to a neighbor's WIFI network which will mean the IP you put in like 192.168.1.101 won't mean anything if your are not on the same network.

2. The new Zwave Commander 2.1 was just released and the update should be pushed to you through ITunes in the next 6 hours. When it does try setting the IP to 192.168.1.100 which is a special signal to look for Bonjour. What is Bonjour?

What is Bonjour? Bonjour is Apple's technology for discovering devices on your network. One of the biggest headaches with Zwave Commander is a lot of users don't understand IP Addresses or how to figure their's out. Well with Bonjour it lets the iPhone or iPod know how to "find" your PC running Zwave Commander.

Bonjour is already on your machine if you have Itunes installed or just Bonjour For Windows it will be able to autodiscover the Zwave Commander server on your WIFI network. That way if you switch from say your College Dorm to Home you won't have to go in and change your Settings. Same if you use DHCP and your PC constantly changes IP addresses every time you reboot your machine. Just leave the setting on the default 192.168.1.100 and it will assume you want to try and autodiscover your PC running Zwave Commander PC Server. The Bonjour code had to be added to the Server side too so make sure you upgrade your server side version.

Also, I have fixed the issue when your phone wakes up from sleep, it will WAIT until the WIFI connection is established and try to automatically reconnect to the last connection. I have been testing it this last week and it seems to be very stable and work great. Let me know if you have any questions!
