@nathan-osman is it possible to release newer version for Fedora to test discovery problems between WiFi desktop and WiFi Android?

Hello. Anyone familiar w/Nitroshare have time and inclination to listen to my tale of woe?
boomt1337
@boomt1337
@spiraldancing Sure, let's hear it.

@spiraldancing
Hola @boomt1337 ... I have it up and running, successfully passing files back and forth between my desktop and laptop (both running Linux Mint).
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Hola. Nice to hear!

@spiraldancing
However, on my phone (which is the device I actually need it working on), Nitroshare does not "see" any other devices on the LAN.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Are you connected to the same Wifi?
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
ouch ... good question. checking
boomt1337
@boomt1337
ok
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Hmm ... okay, I have to wifi channels ... laptop was on one, phone on another. Desktop is on ethernet.
I switched phone over to the same wifi channel as the laptop ... but still the same result.

@spiraldancing
On the phone, "Send with NitroShare" "select a device from the list below" page ... just spins its wheel eternally.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Ouch. Hmmmmm....
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
I'm confident the problem is w/some setting on the phone, rather than NitroShare.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Try relaunching NitroShare
Make sure version is up to date
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Well, I've already rebooted the phone ... good enough?
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Try killing the app on your laptop.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Turned off on the laptop now ... rebooting the phone again now (since switching wifi channels).
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Okay.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
...
mumble-grumble ... no joy.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Sad.
Hmmmmm.. I'll try and repro later, it's 12:41 AM here.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Branching out a bit ... the whole reason I discovered Nitro today, is because the phone keeps failing to transfer larger files.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Oh.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Anything under 4MB xfrs fine, 5-10MB is hit-and-miss, anything over 12MB fails every time.
That's over USB.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Ah. I see.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Any simple and obvious suggestions? Otherwise, go to bed; not your problem.
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Is NitroShare uptodate?
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Yep ... 0.4.0.39 (40) ... 6/2/2018 update
boomt1337
@boomt1337
oh.
I'm out of ideas then. I need rest so we'll talk in the morning.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
thanks. nite
boomt1337
@boomt1337
Night :)
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
Rest easy @boomt1337 ... I figured out a work-around. Forgot I have a live private nextcloud server running .... Pushed all the large files from my phone to my nextcloud, and thence back down to my PC. The scenic route, but it got the job done.
Eric the Cerise
@spiraldancing
But I'll be revisiting Nitroshare after I blow away this stupid default Android implementation and flash Lineage onto the phone ... Any Day Now™.
