Aggregate 1.0 and ODK Collect

Hello

I need help on Aggregate 1.0 Alpha 5. I´ve got it installed without
any problem (mysql option) in my Windows 7 and running. I can access
via http://localhost.
The problem is on my ODK Collect at my phone. In the server option I
´ve set it to my "http://myip" but I cannot get my forms over my
phone.

Do you know what is happening. Thank you for your help

Hi Jose,

Can you access http://myip from the phone's web browser (or another computer
not on your local network)? You might have to set your firewall to accept
incoming traffic on port 80.

Hi Adam

Thank you for your help, but still the problem remains.

I tried openning port 80 and also deactivating completely the windows
´s firewall and didn´t work.
I go to "Get new forms" in ODK Collect at my phone and I receive "Form
listing failed. Connection reset by peer." error.
Should I open any other port ?

Did you try connecting to http://myip from your phone's web browser as I
suggested? My guess is that you're behind a NAT router (you'll know because
your IP starts with 192, which means it's an internal IP that you won't be
able to connect to externally). If this is the case, you need to:

  1. Log into your router's admin console (
    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080430165506AA1NSp8)
  2. Find and record your router's external IP address (which should not
    start with 192)
  3. Turn on port forwarding of port 80 on your router to whatever your
    computer's internal IP is (192.x.x.x)
  4. Connect to ODK Voice through your router's external IP address

If you are connected to the internet through a standard residential ISP, you
probably also have a dynamic IP address, meaning that your IP (your router's
external IP, to be exact) will change over time. To prevent that, you will
either have to contact your ISP about getting a static IP address (which
they may charge you for), or you can use a 'dynamic DNS' service such as
http://www.dyndns.com/.

Good luck!

Thank you Adam

I can run it localy, accesing my server ip and my phone connected
under my wifi, but not from the internet.

As you said I had to redirect port 80 on my router (NAT) to my server
´s IP, but as I said, I cannot access from the internet public IP.
I´ll keep on trying. Thank you for your help.

Sounds like you've got everything working on your server and wifi router if
the phone can access the server via wifi.

Now you have to work up the networking chain. The equipment that connects
your home/office network to the network/telecom infrastructure usually has
its own IP address and will have its own configuration page that you'll need
to use to enable "port forwarding" of that IP address' port 80 to your
server. This, at least, is my experience with DSL and WiMAX modems.

From the outside world, you can then use a web page like
http://www.whatismyip.com/ to figure out what the IP address is that your
ISP/telecom provider exposes to the internet; it, again, may be different
than your equipment's IP address. That is the IP address you'd need to
reference to access your server from outside the office/home.

And if you haven't purchased a static IP, the exposed IP address can change
over time.

Can you accesshttp://myipfromthe phone's web browser (or another
