    Stumped as to why Blue Iris Android app via OpenVPN will not connect

    I see under the OpenVPN for Android config routing a custom routes option. Could I just put the IP of the Blue Iris desktop there instead of checking the use default route Ipv4 and IP6 boxes? I wasn't aware you could get Firefox to ignore the expired certificate, but wouldn't that only work...

    Stumped as to why Blue Iris Android app via OpenVPN will not connect

    Problem solved. Thank you. I was able to ping my camera PC which is really what had me puzzled. I never had to check those routing boxes before and could find no mention of that anywhere. When I ticked both boxes, viola, the Blue Iris app connects. I went ahead in the VPN config under allowed...

    Stumped as to why Blue Iris Android app via OpenVPN will not connect

    I tried your idea of removing battery optimization from the VPN for Android app but unfortunately I'm still a no go. I tried with their tech support to use self signed certificates and it simply would not work. The tech said there is a bug in their firmware that they are supposed to be working...

    Stumped as to why Blue Iris Android app via OpenVPN will not connect

    I got my Blue Iris PC set up over a year ago and had been successfully connecting to my Blue Iris PC using OpenVPN for Android with the OpenVPN server on my Synology RT2600AC. I've been going through a ridiculous run around with Synology support regarding my router OpenVPN server not working due...

    Alerts/clear all not working in BI app in Android

    Thanks for the swiping tip. I didn't realize you can do that. I tried and you can swipe in either direction which is way better than having to view/delete each. I don't like having a long list of alerts to filter through. I'd rather just look at what's there and delete as I go.

    Alerts/clear all not working in BI app in Android

    For about the last 6 weeks all of a sudden my alerts/clear all button in the Android app will not work. For example I get out in the yard or something without turning my cameras off, I'll have 50 alerts. I normally just look at the alert previews and clear all, but now I am having to go through...

    Are you happy with iOS Blue Iris mobile app?

    For what it's worth, I don't have the IOS version, but the Android version. However I can say the Android app just works. It could probably use some UI polishing, but it is overall pretty simple, is stable, and I get motion notifications on my cell within seconds. I was able to get Blue Iris...

    Openvpn connection works but cannot access blue iris

    Go figure. Now all of a sudden the Blue Iris app has decided to start connecting. Hopefully it will continue to cooperate. Thank you both for your help.

    Openvpn connection works but cannot access blue iris

    I have Blue Iris checked as an app to use VPN in the openvpn config, and changed the Wan address to match the Lan address and its not connecting (both 192.168.1.6:81 which is the static address of my BI pc) . The username/pass I confirmed in BI on my PC as being what I setup there). Ui3 however...

    Openvpn connection works but cannot access blue iris

    Here are several screenshots of my router configuration. I am thinking I may have something not quite right in the firewall rules, but I am not positive. I set them up per support on the Synology community forum when I was trying to get the router VPN server working. On thinking this over I...
