Windows server using wrong IP address when using auto config

1 post in this topic

When running the server on Windows, the server listens to the correct IP address, but it sends out the wrong IP address when using auto config on the client (OSX). *Edit*: I have several configured interfaces on the Windows machine (one for the normal Ethernet, and a couple for VMware), and Synology uses the wrong one for auto config. If I specify the IP address on the client it works fine, but I'd much rather use the Auto config setting. Any tips are appreciated.

Hello Martin, The "Auto Configuration" feature is Apple's Bonjour technology. It isn't perfect, and when it doesn't make the right choice the solution is to turn it off and manually specify the connection. If you have any specific suggestions as to how to make this work better, I'd be happy to write an Enhancement request issue on GitHub. - Brian
