Full Version: Can't connect using host name

I have xbmcdroid on my SG2, and XBMC Eden on a computer with static IP. Both of them connected on the same wifi LAN.

I can connect with the remote if, in the setup, I use the IP direction. But if I try to use the host name (xbmc.local), it can't connect.

I can connect to the http server of the XBMC using my laptop (using the host name or the IP). And right now I have discovered that, using the brownser of my SG2, I can connect to the http server only if I use the IP, not the local name.

So, I guess it has something to do with my phone, and not with XBMC.

Any ideas of what could be the problem?
