Question Re: Potential bug? (using iPhone/iPod Touch as remote) - 03-02-2009, 07:19 PM

Are you using IPv6 or IPv4? Try IPv4.

Which version of the network drivers are installed (ie- which bootloader are you using)?

That was it! I disabled the Ethernet port (and Bluetooth just to make certain) and she hooked right up over the ad hoc I created. I also disabled IPv6, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

Still won't connect back through the house wireless, but that could very well be a setting with the hardware firewall.

Good call in recognizing it as a Bonjour problem!

FYI, I upgraded to DellEFI bootloader last week.

Glad that worked! Although you might be without Ethernet and Bonjour if you ever use a wired connection. I spent a day-and-a-half tracking down a networking problem between Airport Express, AppleTV and my desktop Hackintosh, so I learned a lot about Bonjour. The nice thing about the Mini 9 is that we all have almost exactly the same hardware, unlike the various combinations and interactions you can get in the desktop Hackintosh world.

There is also a lot of really talented and dedicated individuals here working on getting the software and hardware to work - both those who are doing the coding and those who take the time to test it.
