Hi,

I have discover a problem with DroidMote ... that generate a segfault in some case ...
... the reason is : if Asustor VPN is running (mine is with OpenVPN only ... ) ... DroidMote fail with "segfault" (visible in dmesg output)
... if VPN is temporary disabled (not need to uninstall it) ... DroidMote start as expected and run as well ...

I have NO IDEA of the reason and no idea if it's possible to bind the application to the "normal" I.P. or list of I.P. ... I will search

So for the moment ... TWO workarounds are possible :
1 : is to stop using Asustor VPN server (just disabled it) then start or restart DroidMote ...
2 : SAME ... but you can restart the VPN server AFTER DroidMote is started ... so you get the two working ...

I am not sure to be able to force running DroidMote BEFORE VPN server ... it's an internal mechanism ... and I don't know all elements ...

I have open a ticket ... because this problem can appear also, perhaps, for other application ...
I will work on a command to do it
... automatically at start of droidmote
... or manually with a simple command ...

This will be include in next release 3.0.6 ... soon

Hi,

New update DroidMote 3.0.6 : Please read carefully ... try to solve cohabitation with Asustor VPN_Server

[Version]
3.0.6 (Update of Fresh Install)
... look at dev site for changelog
... ... visible change are :
... ... ... no more require Xorg libraries
... ... ... Add specific keyboard layout (not sure of the usage ??? )
... APKG change : ATTENTION due to a problem with Asustor VPN-Server
... ... DroidMote can't start (crash) if VPN-Server is active
... ... ... Disable it or postpone DroidMote installation
... ... ... IF VPN-server is active and Enable ... at first start (just after install or update) ... Droidmote Disable vpn_server, start then enable vpn_server
... ... ... A new console start-stop parameter will be added if for any reason you want to start or restart DroidMote when VPN-server is installed and Enable
Code: Select all
# /usr/local/AppCentral/droidmote/CONTROL/start-stop.sh
Usage:
 ... /usr/local/AppCentral/droidmote/CONTROL/start-stop.sh {start|stop|restart}
 ... /usr/local/AppCentral/droidmote/CONTROL/start-stop.sh {start_for_vpn|restart_for_vpn}
 ... ... ... if VPN is installed and Enable, Disabled it, start or restart droidmote, Enable VPN again
 ... ... ... if VPN is not installed or Disable, do a simple start or restart of droidmote

====== NOW DroidMote will start BEFORE VPN_Server ... so normally at boot ... no more problem ... (I hope)

Yes ... I hope :lol: (even I can't be able to test all configuration) ... but the Asustor support ticket is open ... because a workaround is not a long term solution .
I have some exchange with support team engineer ... ... wait and see

So how do I activate the droidmote server after installation?

I installed it on my NAS and installed the droidmote client on my android phone. However, the client cannot see the server, even though I enter the correct port and local IP address.

The AIRemote app on the same phone can see the NAS, so it is not a network problem.

Do I need to install som other software not included in the droidmote server package?

Hum! ... normally no more things are require
The know problem (at this time the only known) with Asustor is if you use Asustor VPN ... preventing droidmote to run

workaround cane be :
stop VPN for the duration of using droidmote (always local)
OR try
/usr/local/AppCentral/droidmote/CONTROL/start-stop.sh {start_for_vpn|restart_for_vpn} ... choice one ...
the purpose is :
Usage:
... ./CONTROL/start-stop.sh {start|stop|restart}
... ./CONTROL/start-stop.sh {start_for_vpn|restart_for_vpn}
... ... ... if VPN is installed and Enable, Disabled it, start or restart droidmote, Enable VPN again
... ... ... if VPN is not installed or Disable, do a simple start or restart of droidmote


starting (or restarting) VPN after droidmote seem in some A.D.M. version to solve the problem ...

log of droidmote are in /tmp/droidmote.log

I can't redo a test with my Asustor before 10 to 15 days ... I am in travel and not near my NAS.
